AW: Biggest baby in there ever! — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

AW: Biggest baby in there ever!

So today at my u/s I measured 10w4d that is a lot further ahead than I expected based on when I think I O'd. And of course I'm OK with that! The baby's HB was 153. He/she was moving up a storm. Head, shoulders knees & toes (actually arms buds & legs) were all waving around.

Sad news is what I thought was the heartbeat on the doppler was not. :( Even though the doppler was showing a numbers of over 130 all the way to 170 it was not the baby. I made a video from the last time I used it and showed it to him and he explained the reason the numbers were so high was something about my diastolic & some other stolic (doctor medical speak, I stopped paying attention for a minute) heartbeat. He then tried with his doppler and didn't find it. I'm pretty small so I was hoping it was the heartbeat. He told me to try again in a week or two. I have a 7 pretty baby photos to keep me happy until I find it for real.

  • eeeek! This is so exciting, girl! I'm so happy for you and your biggest baby ever in there. Congrats, and keep looking at those photos!

    And total bummer that your doc doesn't think you are finding the HB at home. But at least you get the reassurance from your awesome appointment!

    Did you hear the fast heartbeat or just see it on the screen? I'd be hesitant to dismiss it as the baby, but I guess if that's what he said!

    Glad the baby is measuring big and looks great! Smile Congrats on a great scan!

    The u/s tech used the visual waves to make the heartbeat sounds on the u/s. It was an abdominal scan (first this pregnancy), but they didn't try the doppler during the u/s. She did say it was really strong and loud and it was possible that it was the baby's heartbeat I heard on the doppler. Then the doctor used the doppler and found the exact sound I had found and said it wasn't the baby quite yet.

  • Congratulations on passing that milestone!  Glad you had a good appointment.  I haven't tried a doppler yet, I have a tipped ute so I know I wouldn't be able to find the HB in me...I'm sure you will find in the next couple of weeks though!  Glad you got lots of pics today though...that's so exciting!
