Re: When were first heartbeats?

  • I saw them for the first time- using a transvaginal ultrasound at 6w 2d.  I heard two heartbeats using a doppler in my OB office at 12 weeks.
  • I saw them the first time at 6w2d and they were both between 160-170. I had a Doppler at home and I heard them at 9w1d with that

  • I had an u/s at 7w and change. Saw them then.

    Didn't attempt w a Doppler until 14-15w.

  • We were not able to see HB at 5w5d but I was told not to be discouraged because that was quite normal in many twin cases.  I go back two weeks from today (that will be 8w3d) and I better see them!

  • First saw them at 7 weeks t/v with the RE.

    First heard them at 9 weeks, t/a with the MFM.

    My RE waits until 7w to do an u/s so there is a better chance!
  • My first visit was at 7w. They did no u/s or HB check or anything; just blood and urine samples and talked to the nurse. We were told by the nurse that we wouldn't get a u/s until 18-20w unless there was cause for concern. Second appt was at 11w5d.  They heard "the heartbeat" and we talked to the OB and then my DH idly asked, "How would we know if there was two in there?" It turned out the OB thought we'd had a u/s at 7w (for some reason) and was like you want one? I'll send you for one. And right away the tech said, "There's two!"

  • We heard one heartbeat at 11 weeks with the Doppler at the drs and it was about 160 then at 13 weeks we went for our first ultrasound and that's when we found out we were having twins and both heartbeats were between 140-155 :)
  • We saw HBs at 7w with a trans vag u/s. There was also a third sac so we also went back the following week but it never developed.

    My RE doesn't bring you in until 7w.

  • I believe we saw our fetal poles and heart rates for our di/di boys at 6w5d, cannot remember their heart rate though. I think 149/152?

  • There were two sacs, only one with a heartbeat at 6 weeks 3 days.  At 6 weeks 6 days both had heartbeats and were measuring 2 days apart.

    My RE doesn't measure the heartrates that early...and after reading about people freaking out I'm thankful for that!
