Ultrasounds! — The Bump

Ultrasounds!

I stole this from December.  (Who stole it from November, thanks guys!)

This thread is for pictures from our ultrasounds throughout the next nine months!!!

**If you have an upcoming u/s appointment, please don't tell us here.  You can share that in the weekly appointment thread and/or your ticker change thread to help us keep this one relatively clean.  **

Please check your picture before sharing to make sure that any personal information you don't want to share with everyone is covered up.

Some love to start their own threads to AW happy moments.  That is fine too!  Also please share the picture in here if you feel so inclined.  There are never too many places to celebrate these little ones and their mamas.  

@bumpAdmin can we sticky this thread please.

  • @cyanope Nope, if you get to have the tax write off and not reset your deductible you have to go to the December board with the rest of the lucky ones >:( 

    Just Kidding :) But I am jealous!  ;)

    Nope. I'm staying put, @miranda21037! You guys are stuck with me! If it makes you feel any better, I don't have a deductible. I pay $30 to have a baby. That's it. One of the glories of being a teacher: having AMAZING insurance! But, the tax write off will be nice! Let's hope this baby comes on time!
    Ps...this post has a LOT of exclamation points...!

    I'm so emotional ladies. I thought I was 7w1d and went in for my first ultrasound and he said I must be like 6 weeks according to the yolk sac measurments but there is no heartbeat to be seen yet. He said I'm still early and this looks healthy and doesn't look like a miscarriage to him but I have another ultrasound in a week and a half to check growth. I'm worried sick.

  • @akingmomma FX for you. It is so common to ovulate late and have your dates off. That US looks promising! I know waiting is the absolute worst. Hugs.

  • @akingmomma - FX for you!  We're in the same boat.  My RE thought I would be further long due to date of LMP but I'm a late ovulator.  I go in on Thursday for a follow-up and we'll hopefully find the HB then.  Just remember:  right now, you're pregnant.  Enjoy it.

  • I am having my first ultrasound at 8 weeks and 4 days. Will they do it abdominally or vaginally? Thanks guys!!

    @laurent90 I just had my first ultrasound last week at 7 weeks and was shocked when the tech said "let's try an abdominal one." With DD, they did a transvaginal one at 7.5 weeks. However, this tech was awesome. She said since I was thin (lol, not sure what she was seeing) she thought it was worth trying; however, often the position of the placenta and/or uterus (tilted or not) can make it hard to see anything with an abdominal one so early, so I think many techs default and just do a transvaginal. And FYI, the transvaginal is awesome because you get such a clear picture! Also you are so consumed with the screen etc. that you don't feel it (or I didn't).

  • @akingmomma, Im a late ovulator.  Ive always been 10 days "behind" what lmp says.  Going by lmp assumes you have a 28 day cycle and ovulate on day 14, which less than half the population has both of those true.    That ultrasound looks great.

  • @laurent90 Usually for abdominal ultrasound they ask you to drink a certain amount of water couple hours prior to the ultrasound... Having a full bladder helps them see baby better. If there are no instructions like that, then they will probably do a vaginal ultrasound.

  • Love all these beans, ladies!!!! 

    @aimsforyou2014 you might want to crop/edit your picture so your full personal info isn't visible.

  • @hwoodmama that's what I'm thinking. I actually ended up checking my period tracker app and me and hubs DTD on the EXACT day that would measure up with the ultrasound. It's a week later than the generic timing that the app had for me ovulation. So I think I ovulated a week later. I am staying hopeful everything is fine! ❤️

  • @laurent90 I agree with what @EmilyLove25 said. During my us yesterday, they tried abdominal first since I was over 7 weeks. However, they had to do the transvaginal because I have a retroverted (tilted) uterus. I'm a STM and had no clue until now!
  • Yes I have to drink a litre of water an hour prior and I can't go to the toilet!
