1st Trimester

1st Ultrasound Jitters

I scheduled my first ultrasound today! I'm a little further along than I thought so I was able to get in next week. Now of course I am so nervous! :) Anyone in the same boat?

Re: 1st Ultrasound Jitters

  • My first ultrasound is Friday! It was set 3 weeks ago. I was really anxious the first week because I didn't have any symptoms and just thought the worst. But, my morning sickness (all day nausea) set in last week, so now the anxiety has been replaced with excitement! I thought the 3 weeks would go by so slow, but they have flown by! Lucky you, you don't have to wait long at all!

  • I am rather nervous as well. Mine is tomorrow. I have had a terrible chest cold the last few days and felt just pathetically awful. Normally when I am sick, food seems like a bad idea, but I am still rather hungry every two or so hours, so I am taking that as a good sign. At least one of us feels like eating. Fingers crossed things go well.

  • Mine is Friday also, I just scheduled it this morning. I don't honestly know how far along I am, I think between 6-7 weeks this morning, so this will be the dating scan I guess.. I am so nervous to see a HB and just hope all is healthy.  My nurse said go ahead and schedule since my HCG from yesterday was 31,273.  So nervous. Fx for everyone :)

  • My Dr. likes to see people for their first US between 8-10weeks. According to my LMP I'm 7 weeks but I have longer cycles so I'm probably more like 6 weeks. I just want to see a HB! :)

  • Mine is next Tuesday. I'll be 8wks & 5days & I'm a nervous wreck!

    Good Luck to everyone :)

     

  • Mine's in two weeks... excited more than nervous... I'm just hoping for size to age to stay good over the long run - my first pregnancy was IUGR and munchkin was 2 lbs 15 oz at 32 weeks! (that's really small... she's 7.5 now and still only weighs about 45 lbs)
  • Mine is 2 weeks from now and I'll be 11 weeks 1 day. I'm so ready to actually see the baby! I only had m/s for about a week so I got lucky there. Other than round ligament pain, I don't feel pregnant until I see the baby!

  • Mine was yesterday. Leading up to is I was 95% excited, 5% nervous. DH is a worrier, he was probably 75%/25%.

    Everything was great and we are both relieved. DH told the nurse that he was nervous because I haven't puked yet. The nausea kicked in last week but hasn't been too bad and no vomiting. DH is used to tv and movies where a newly pregnant woman has her head in a toilet a lot.

  • Time is going by SO SLOOOOW waiting for my U/S & Prenatal appt on April 16th... I can barely stand the anticipation. :) I agree its not real to me yet until I see my baby bean on the screen :D

    If my husbands nervous he's not showing it. No emotion really. I know he's excited but I want him to be excited WITH ME!! Show me. Tell me! Ugh...men ;)

  • My first u/s is in two weeks and I'll be 9 weeks/3 days.  Excited, but anxious to hear that heartbeat and know that everything is okay!
  • Mine's not for another 3 weeks-I'll be just over 9 weeks at that point and it will be the first time DH and I get to hear the heartbeat also.  I'm nervous for everything to be alright, and excited to see our baby for the first time!!

  • Good luck to everyone who has their scans today, I just had mine and they dated me at 6w6d, heart beat was 144 bpm!! It was just an external scan too, they didn't need to do an internal.  Fx this means everything is good, and Fx for all of your ladies as well!

  • I also had mine today. I'm am measuring at 6w6d too-- based on LMP I was 8w4d, so a little shocking to be off by 2 weeks. Heartbeat was 125bmp. We saw the heartbeat flicker, but couldn't hear it yet. Tech ended up doing an internal to get a better view

  • mine is on the 18th at 10 wks. dad says he can feel the heartbeat, but i think he's imagining it out of excitement. 
    BABY GIRL, 11-11-14 

  • I just had my first ultrasound today and I was super nervous too! I went in for the usual ultrasound but the doctor couldn't see anything so I then had a vaginal ultrasound (Which, by the way, wasn't bad at all! So don't worry if that ends up happening to you) and he was able to see my little baby the size of a sweet pea. It turns out I am half of what they thought I was. They thought I was 12 weeks but really I am only 6 weeks. I mysteriously missed my period in February. Anyway, it's okay to be nervous! I asked my nurse and she said, "Of course! It's your first pregnancy!" So just TRY (because I know it'll seem impossible to do so) to keep calm and excited. 
  • I'm sooo nervous for my first ultrasound on April 25th. In my 5th week i had broke out in hives and faced swelled up had to take steroids which can affect the baby and then my yesterday was getting sick all day couldn't keep anything down. I'm so scared and hope everything is going good
  • My first u/s is Thursday. I'll just be 7 weeks & I'm nervous too! Hoping to be reassured everything is a-ok!
    BabyFetus Ticker Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • Some of these responses are very reassuring. I had a dating scan on 4/7. Went in thinking I was 7 weeks exactly by LMP, but only measured 5w. If course there was no heartbeat that early so I have been a little nervous. We did see gestational sac and yolk sac. I go back in 1 week to have another scan...I am trying to be patient.

    Mine first ultrasound is a week from tomorrow.  I'll be something like 8w 5d.  I really wanted to have a sonogram to put in my mom's Mother's Day card to announce it to my family.  But at my first appointment last week my OB said I have a tilted uterus, meaning it's pointing towards my back and not in front pressing on my bladder like normal, so there's a chance the equipment may not be able to pick up the heartbeat until I'm several weeks further along.  But here's hoping!

    I went in for my first dr visit. The place i went to told me they don't do ultrasounds there until 16-19wks and only to find out the sex. I was beyond upset. I have had miscarriages in the past and i am soo worried that something could be wrong with my baby... ugh any of you ladies in swfl? 


    Edit*
    Also based on my LMP i should have been 9wks at the time but she felt my uterus and said its impossible that i'm that far and she doesn't even think i'm pregnant because i don't have a dark line on my belly... She couldnt even tell me how far i was. UGh i need a new dr.
  • Miscarriage after miscarriage, and I'm pregnant again after two years of trying. I'm now 7 weeks along, and scheduled for an early ultrasound a week from today. The only thing I can think about is whether I'll see a little heartbeat, or not.

  • I had my first u/s today and was a ball of nerves this whole week. It's always scary not knowing. But everything went perfect. Baby has a heartbeat of 164 and they said that's healthy. I'm measuring right with my edd. All of this was so reassuring after losing my last pregnancy. Now it's just trying to keep the positive vibes until this first trimester passes. I hope your first goes great as well!
    [Deleted User]erinlin25cmireles
  • My first u/s was last week. I was so nervous for that appointment, I paced around work the entire morning until it was time for me to go to my appointment. My baby is a little small, so my doc changed my due date by a week. That makes me a little nervous, but we could see a strong heartbeat so that's reassuring. I go in for another one in five weeks (I'll be at 12wks then)

  • My first ultrasound is Friday (4 days from now) and I'm really excited. I'm really trying focus on being posative after two previous losses (found by ultrasound) I'm using the power of denial to my advantage. I am also going to a completely new practice that uses a different company to do their ultrasounds do that is really helping. I'm also bringing my husband this time instead of going alone.

  • I'm 10w2d and my first ultra is Tuesday I'm nervous and excited all at the same time.
  • First time pregnant at ALL over here and already 9w. Got my first U/S tomorrow afternoon. I've been a nervous wreck waiting but thankfully I only had to wait a week! Reading all the comments about how your appointments went kinda relieves some of my nerves. But I still can't help but be SUPER excited to hear my baby's heartbeat.

    This will be my first altrasound with my second baby, but I'm only 16 weeks, and I was just wondering if I would be wrong if I didn't tell my Baby daddy if we having a girl or boy? The reason I ask is, because we had a discussion today about going to my first altrasound on Monday, but he says, "He will take me to my appointment, but won't come up to see the Doctor, because he doesn't like Doctors."  So when I go for my Appointment on Monday will I be wrong for not showing him the pictures, and telling him what we having?

  • My first u/s is Friday! Cautiously hopeful as my numbers have been GREAT so far =)
  • The best part is hearing that heartbeat and seeing it move on the monitor.  Just wait for your 20 week ultrasound, it gets even better!

  • Mine is on May 14th. I hope I hear a heartbeat. As one ONE good strong heartbeat.
  • I am nervous also my only symptom is peeing every 15mins and I am nervous that I have not gotten morning sickness I am just worried I have several family and friends that miscarried last year
  • mine is Tuesday may 12! I'll be 7 weeks 4 days, so excited
  • I'm counting the second until mine - which is not for another 2 weeks!
  • I am nervous also my only symptom is peeing every 15mins and I am nervous that I have not gotten morning sickness I am just worried I have several family and friends that miscarried last year

    The lack of morning sickness doesn't mean you'll miscarry. I myself haven't gotten anything more than queasy here and there, and everything is fine. Not all women get morning sickness. Count yourself as one of the lucky ones who don't have to go through that!

    My first obgyn appointment is Thursday. I hope to get an ultra sound. I am sure they will give me one. I hope so. I am almost  8 weeks right now. I am pretty excited. I have only told a few people. 

  • I too was very nervous until my first u/s. I couldn't wait to hear a hb or see my LO for confirmation that everything was okay. Hearing the hb was the most amazing experience of my life. The anticipation can be stressful, but try to stay positive :-)

    I definitely have the jitters too for my first U/S. This is my first pregnancy, and my first OB appt. will be on July 2nd. I was told the first part of the appointment would be an U/S...it's a tough wait. Even tougher than the "two-week wait" I'd say.

    BabyFetus Ticker
  • I think I'm more nervous for this one than I was with my other kids. Maybe because now I know more people who have had losses or something, but I'm fearing the worst. Tuesday cannot come soon enough.




  • My 1st ultrasound is today. Based on my LMP, I think I am around nine weeks pregnant. But my periods are wonky so I don't really trust that all that well. I've been waiting five weeks for my appointment and have been very nervous. Last time I wasn't this nervous but I also didn't have as long of a wait because I found out about my pregnancy later. I have also known a lot more people this time around who have had miscarriages lately. I also had a miscarriage myself before my successful pregnancy and all of the miscarriage talk has brought up a lot of memories. I just hope everything turns out okay in today's ultrasound and then I can breathe easy for a while.

    Yes, it's kind of effed up. It's also messed up that he won't go to the doctor with you. Tell him to put on his big boy undies. What is he planning to do when you give birth?




  • These boards can sometimes cause a lot of unneeded stress. Seeing everyones stories about miscarriages can be disheartening for sure. 

    My doctors office called yesterday, wanted me to do my 1st ultrasound this Friday but I switched it to the 29th. I figure it will allow the baby more time as well.

  • Living on a military base. They want us to be seen around 10 weeks for our first OB appointment which sucks and worries me a lot to wait until 10 weeks, as I'm 7 now it's still frustrating! I'm thinking about seeing a off post doctor.

  • I have my first apt July 20th & will be 7w6d. Do you think I will have an U/S that apt? They didn't explain over the phone when I made the apt the time frame/schedule ...just hoping for some indication that everything is going well.

    @k&;d3715 I just went for my first prenatal visit at 7 weeks... I did have an ultrasound which was the first portion of the appointment. They did transvaginal after trying on the belly. Also had urine sample taken, a weigh-in, pap, mammogram, and blood work. Good luck on your first appointment!! It's so exciting to see the flickering heartbeat for the first time.

  • @princesspriscilla thank you!! Sounds very detailed. Hoping for the same experience! So exciting!

  • I went for mine last week at 9 weeks! I was terrified! Fair warning, they look at everything else besides the baby too!! It took probably 10 minutes before she showed us the baby! So we were getting more and more anxious that it wouldn't be there, but sure enough, our sweet little peanut was in there just a wiggling around! All your anxiety goes away as soon as you see the little flicker in it's chest!! Good luck ladies!!
  • Hi Everyone!
    It's my first time posting or using this app (which I've come to love). My first appointment is next Saturday, in which I will be roughly 9weeks and 6days... My doctor said they preferred me to come in during this time but I'm a nervous wreck! It's hard to wait and reading about the alarming rate of miscarriages has me a bit on edge. I'm praying baby is healthy and has a strong heartbeat!
  • Yep! Mine is Friday and I worry that something will be wrong.

    I had an ultra sound today along with my first appointment because they believed I was 6 weeks along.  Turns out I am not that far along at all, only 4 weeks or so.  There was no heartbeat, and they measured the size of the sac.  I have another scheduled in 2 weeks. I am very nervous that they won't find anything at all.  The ultrasound technician did advise me not to worry since it is so early in the pregnancy and that the heartbeat should be there next time.

  • @runningmama22 how do you get your hcg levels checked before a prenatal appointment? I have mine on December 2 and was wondering if you do this before then or is that done at that appt? This is my first pregnancy so I'm a little new on the protocol. Thanks so much!
  • I had my first ultrasound at 5weeks 2days. The doctor puts me around 6weeks.
    They were checking for mutilples as my hcg levels were really high. There's only 1 baby. I didn't get to hear a heart beat, but I wasn't even expecting and ultrasound. Since i was admitted for extreme vomitting. They checked everything in the emergency room.
    My family doctors appointment is in 2 more days, and I doubt I'll have another ultrasound until I'm around 10-12 weeks
  • I'm so nervous it's all I think about. I'm 6 weeks 1 day - my ultrasound is in 2 weeks on the first day of week 8 so I'm hoping that's far enough along to hear the heartbeat. I had an extremely painful loss a few months ago that was the worst experience of my life so I'm very anxious that everything is ok. I can't wait to see my little one :)

    I had my 1st appointment around 4 weeks after I tested positive on 3 home pregnancy test. I was only able to see that sack and the doctor said everything was fine. I haven't had any spotting or sharp pains. Now I'm 6 weeks and have a OBGYN appt when I'm exactly 7 weeks. I'm so nervous! I keep reading stories of miscarriage and I'm trying to stay positive. Since this is my pregnancy, I'm a little on edge.

    My wife's first ultrasound for this pregnancy is next Tuesday. I feel so nervous as if I have never done it before with her; hope that my baby is healthy. I do not even know what to think, it is so exciting. Cannot wait to see my child. Although, I have my worries. What if something goes wrong? It will be already 8 weeks then.
