Hi mamas! I am currently 7w + 2 according to my ovulation date, which I tracked using a urine test. I ovulated early this cycle so according to LMP, I'm 6w + 6. I am using a midwife and birthing center for this birth so only one ultrasound is done at 20 weeks. Everything else is measured via Doppler. Even then, it has to be between 11-12 weeks. I'm totally freaking out and know that if I wait that long to hear a heartbeat, I'll stress myself into madness.
SO I am having an elective abdominal ultrasound done on Saturday just to see our little one and see the heartbeat. The tech feels confident that we will be able to find it. But I know 7 weeks (ish) is kind of early in the pregnancy. Does anyone have anything helpful to share? Is it common to not find a heartbeat at 7 weeks even if everything is ok, or should we expect it even so early? I'm especially nervous because, besides sore breasts and food aversions, I haven't really dealt with any pregnancy symptoms. Thank you!
