Strange question, do they make you have a full bladder for these ultrasounds?
@katier9090 yes! I have my first one tomorrow and they told me to drink 24 oz of water an hour before hand and hold it. I’m dreading that part! But so so excited for my first US and hoping everything goes well
I've had lots of trouble with constipation, abdominal cramping, and nausea so they sent me to the emergency department and I got an ultrasound to checkfor an ectopicpregnancy. I'm 7 weeks inside the womb. It sounds like if you have to wait for a ultrasound the doctors are less concerned about immediate medical issues. I'm a first time mom so I could be wrong but that's how I see it at this point. ❤
Had my ultrasound today - saw a gestational sac and yolk sac but couldn’t get any images of a fetal pole. I couldn’t get a read from the tech or the doctor what it really means - they both said it could be fine, or could be a non-viable pregnancy, and I’ll be going back next week for another ultrasound.
Re: Ultrasound Thread
when you are closer to getting the adorable 3D ultrasounds, hydration is SUPER important for a good photo.
Also, just can't help but laugh at "baby" 🤣
We got our ~8 week ultrasound today - doc says baby is actually measuring 7w 6d, so our guess wasn't too far off! We didn't hear the heartbeat but we did get to see the little heart fluttering on the machine which was WILD. I went into this blind and had no idea the ultrasounds were vaginal - I was expecting that romantic over-the-belly scan, bahaha. I definitely ugly cried when I saw baby moving around. I have never had photos where I have no idea what I'm looking at but also LOVING what I'm looking at at the same time.
