  • @leighawilson91 My doctor doesn't do another ultrasound till around 20 weeks. I found a place close to me called Stork Vision, and I plan on going there for another ultrasound around 12-13 weeks. It is even cheaper than my doctors office, only $75 and you get 2-5 photos.

    @ShyTonia I fought the urge to buy one last pregnancy but now I'm all tempted again. I will be so stressed out though if I couldn't hear the Hb.

  • @dkizz82 DH is the worst with holding in surprises. I mentioned a little bit ago that I thought they were interesting but that was it. Then last week he was oh look what I ordered you!  :# I'm scared but excited at the same time. Next drs appt is Friday (only doppler,12w scan is the 23rd) oh the anticipation.

  • @dkizz82 will do girly! When was your last scan?
  • @dkizz82 I just found a local ultrasound place by me that seems pretty cool. I could go in right now and get an US for 40$! Omg I need to stop. Lol It's called cherished memories ultrasound.

    @ShyTonia last scan was 6.3. He doesn't do a 12 week scan. There's a place here that will do gender at 14 weeks for $65. We'll probably do that. Well DH says no, but I'll overrule him.  :D

    So I had my ultrasound yesterday and it was super unpleasant. They stuck with my 12/6 due date, at least. We met with the genetic counselor as well and aside from MaterniT21, there were a minimum of 18-36 other disorders she wanted to screen both DH and I for (because his dad is Jewish and there are added risk factors). So after that appointment, we head in for my ultrasound with my "comfortably full" bladder and the tech says she wants to go transvaginally. I asked if she'd at least try abdominally first. She agreed and we got the briefest glimpse of our flailing little kicker and she showed us the heartbeat (183), but then told me to go empty my bladder. Yes boss. Transvaginal ultrasound showed us nothing. She couldn't get any good views and we left with no pictures. On top of that, my vagina STILL hurts from how rough she was. I almost asked her to stop because it was super super painful. I go back in a couple weeks for an NT scan and hopefully they'll just stick with abdominal.

    Edited for spelling.

  • @vvitchhazel Sorry it was so unpleasant. Maybe you can avoid that US tech altogether from here on out. 
    vvitchhazel
  • @vvitchhazel I'm so sorry to hear about your US!  It is positive that they got a HB at least.  Maybe baby just wanted to be difficult today.. 
    Concerning the NT scan, I thought that this one was vaginal, but of course I could be wrong!  Sending hugs. 
    vvitchhazel
  • @vvitchhazel. That's horrible. If she could see baby well enough to get the HB then she should have stuck with that. If it were me, I'd probably complain.

  • @AMCsquared I was just going to tell you lol! I got it on Amazon. It's called the Womb Music Baby Heart Monitor/Doppler. From what I hear a lot of DRs. do not recommend them because if you can't find the HB at home then it'll freak you out. I'm 11w2d today and was able to find it in under one minute, even faster after a couple spaced out tries. Don't get me wrong it is definitely hard to find it at first and I can see women getting impatient but man when you find it, it's the coolest feeling/sound ever!
    you have to move suuuuuper slow and be still. I recorded it on my phone and sent it to my hubby at work! He thought it was unbelievable!

  • I have the Sonoline fetal Doppler. This will be the 4th baby to be heard on it. I loaned it to my two best friends when they were pregnant it was one of the most suggested at home dopplers.

  • I went for my 11 week appointment and they couldn't find the heartbeat with a Doppler. So I ended up with a very quick, unofficial ultrasound. From these pics, I don't know if I'm having a dinosaur or an alien....lol. Heartbeat was 170.

    @tamalahoops It's a great sign you heard a healthy heartbeat and he's measuring right on track. I'm sorry the appointment wasn't 100% reassuring for you. I've used this paper (page 6) a lot to compare my stats to the average and percentiles for my dates. 8wks for example = 56 days. Took me a while to figure that out!
