    Hi ladies.

    I am properly introducing myself as of right now. I have known I was pregnant for 2 weeks but was wary of making it "official" until I had seen my baby in the right place with a beating heart on a scan. I had a tubal/ectopic in Feb this year and lost my left tube, so today's scan was a HUGE relief.

    By my "dates" I am 6+2 but by the scan I measured "around 5-6 weeks" the sonographer was not able to be precise at this early stage as my cycles are not regular (range from 27 to 31 days so I could be anywhere between 5 and 6 weeks). The fetal pole was teeny at 2mm but there was a lovely strong heart beat (didn't ask for bpm because I do not want to obsess). I am going to keep myself at my original dates till my 12 week scan so I have something to work by.

    The sonographer and the nurses at the EPU said that everything looks perfect for where I am right now... so here is my little bean:

    Anyway, I feel somewhat happier now I know that at this stage things are progressing as they should.

    Waves HI to you all :)

    weird to look at your scan and think that's what mine looks like. Congrats!

    You're right not to ask for the bpm I probably wouldn't either I'd drive myself crazy.

    Thanks for the welcome ladies ^_^ I know it is looking ahead and I should be savouring every minute but I can't wait to share my 12 week pic too :)

    And tirednurse, your bean might be a teeny bit bigger than mine because they are supposed to grow at 1mm a day by 6 weeks... but they will look similar yes :)

    Hehe, I have NO desire to obsess over the beans heart rate!!!

    Congratulations! :)
    Your scan pic looks similar to my first at 5w6d! I went in 2.5 weeks after when baby was 8w4d and it's amazing how fast baby grew.
    Wishing you a healthy pregnancy!
