  • So awesome to see a HB! I just texted my OB today asking which office she was in in 2 weeks to come in for an early US. I'm eager to get in but since my insurance is crappy i don't want to go in too early before there should be sure cardiac activity and have to pay for another scan a week later. I'll be about 7 weeks when I go (very certain of dates).

  • I'll have one this Friday. They're not sure how much they'll be able to really see but want to try and get an accurate date since it seems like I ovulated later than expected. It's important because of the meds I'm on.

  • I still have two more weeks until my first appointment. It's a new office for me so I hope they do an ultrasound the first appointment. The other day I had a dream that I fell asleep during my appointment and slept thru it all and missed it.

  • We had our first appointment with a nurse yesterday for blood work. She told us they normally don't do an ultrasound until 20 weeks (February!!). I guess I'll be begging for them to do one before then! 
    SaphireSweetie88Telus
  • @cheriep3  20 weeks??? Wow! So no dating ultrasound or the NT?  I would be a wreck waiting that long to see my little bean.  It's hard enough for me to wait out the next two weeks (even though I wouldn't even see anything yet)

  • How exciting!! Anyone know how early they can detect twins with an ultrasound? I'm getting mixed information online.   Thanks!

    @vwsfy6 I believe its btwn 6-7 weeks as they can be off a few days for implantation, at least that is what my RE told me, so we do US at 8 weeks just to be sure everything is there thats going to be there, and that everyone has heart beats! Do you think you could be having twins??? I have been wondering myself since we transferred 2 embryos!

    After 5 years of trying to get pregnant, it finally happened!
    FET #1: 11/23/11 Transferred 2 little embryos
    12/2/11 9dp5dt Beta #1: 37; 12/6/11 13dp5dt Beta #2: 130; 12/8/11 15dp5dt Beta #3: 315; 12/15/11 22dp5dt Beta #4: 3200
    Maison Thomas came in to the world on August 18th, 2012 after a crazy labor, emergency c-section, and 9 days over due! Glad he is here!
    DS is 1 year old, and we are starting round 2 now!
    FET#2: 10/17/13!! : 10/24/13 - BFP : 10/28/13 Beta #1: 3, Chemical Pregnancy

  • @kfdecarie sounds like you have a much higher chance, but I did take Clomid this round and it worked! I don't typically get any ultrasounds with my pregnancies, so I want to have this early one, to know how to proceed from here...just in case it is 2 babes. How early did you get a BFP? I know that's not a tell all, but can be a sign if it's multiples. 
    SaphireSweetie88
  • @vwsfy6 and @kfdecarie I have no good reason like you both do to suspect twins, but it has been on my mind since we found out I was pregnant. I find myself thinking, "when the babies are born," and "the babies will need ___." I don't know if it's just a persistent worry or if it's some sort of intuition. I don't know when I ovulated but when I got my positive test I was 3 weeks 2 days based on LMP. 

    Factors increasing the odds of twins:
    Family history (two sets on mom's side)
    I'm 35 and overweight
    This was only my third cycle since giving birth to my son in January
    I'm breastfeeding (apparently this ups the chances??)

    Needless to say I am anxiously awaiting my ultrasound on 12/5. When are your appointments?

  • Got to see the little bean yesterday along with the heartbeat! My EDD is spot on for July 1 go back in 2 weeks to make sure things are progressing .

  • @vwsfy6 I got my first positive on a wondafo at 5dp5dt but it was so light i was convinced i was seeing a line when there was one, but at 6dp5dt i got a for sure positive and i took a frer to be sure i was not crazy! I dont know what will be in there, but if its twins i am for sure ready for that!!! So is my 4yo who is already convinced that its a boy and girl baby in there! :-) my 2yo is blissfully ignorant still... :-)

  • My first appt. is when I'll be 10 weeks (I'm almost 7 weeks now). That seems late to me but I guess other people have said they do the first appt. anywhere from 8-12 weeks. I just really hope I get to do an ultrasound. Do you think they will do one at 10 weeks? I don't get why some do them earlier them others (when there isn't a complication or concern). Oh well I'm prepared to beg my doctor for one anyways haha 
    SaphireSweetie88Telus
  • @kfdecarie I'm not sure what 5dp5dt means exacly I'm assuming it means days transferred (dt)? If that's the case I'm going to say you are for sure having twins! That's so early, especially on a Wondfo!  How cool. I found out 9dpo, so that's not on the early side, but not super early. Either way you have to keep me posted! When is your US?
    SaphireSweetie88
  • @mamadcb you will have to keep us posted! Sounds like you have a good chance too! I have caught myself thinking "the babies..." too, but really my intuition is telling me there is only one.

  • Had one today and it was a black circle with a flashing light. I will take it! EDD still between 7/2 and 7/6- will know more at my 11 week u/s. they are calling it the latest for now to be safe! very cool to see the heartbeat :)
