1st Trimester

First U/S

Hi Ladies so I'm super excited for my first ultra sound at 8 weeks and a couple of days. I am really hoping to see or hear our baby's heart beat but I'm afraid it'll be too early too see or heat it.. Does anyone know more or less what I can expect to see tomorrow? TIA:)

    You won't see much at about 10 weeks it looks like a gummy bear but you should be able to hear the heartbeat no problem.

    Yep, you should be able to see/hear the HB by then.  If not by an abdominal US, than definitely a transvaginal US.  I saw the HB at 6 weeks 2 days by transvaginal us.  Good luck!!!

    You should be able to both see and hear the heartbeat. The baby won't look much like a baby just yet. Good luck!

    I saw the HB at 6 weeks and a few days, but when I went either that same week the midwife told me it would be too early to hear the HB. I ended up going back for an anomaly u/s and got to see it. It was nice to not have to wait until 11 weeks!

    At 7 weeks even we could barely see the baby but we heard and saw the heart beating.

    I had my first at 8w4d and I saw and heard the heartbeat and could see the baby. It was just a little thing but clearly a baby.

    I had my first u/s at 8w, 2d and saw the heartbeat (and the baby, which basically looked like a big blob).
