Topic: 8w3d ultrasound

Well, we STILL didn't get to hear the heartbeat.  Apparently the u/s machine at the Dr office doesn't do that, nor does it do the little red and blue blood flowy thing that hospital u/smachines do.  He didn't even tell us what the heartbeat was, just that we had arm and leg buds, baby measures 8w3d, and the heartbeat looks good.

Oh well.  Maybe when I get to the regular OB we will get to hear it.

Here is a picture:

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

Is the head at the top? And the little arm buds sticking out straight?  I'm not well versed in ultrasound readings yet. smile

Sorry you didn't get to hear the heartbeat today. sad At least you know it's strong. smile  When do you get released to an OB?

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

Yay, Baby!! At 8 weeks I think they look like little grape heads.  I think it was one of the cutest ultrasounds that I had.  I was so enamored of their grape heads. 

I don't think I got that blue-red flow thing except once or twice ... The only place I heard the heartbeat was at the REs ... Except with the Doppler at the OB's.  You'll definitely get to hear it soon!!

Thanks for the update!!

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

Pretty sure the head's at the bottom, but I'm not sure.  See what I mean about the u/s machine not being very good?  I've seen others that are so clear you can see the baby wiggling around at this stage.

I have to go back in 2 weeks, which will be 10w3d, then again at 12w3d, then he will release me to an OB.

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

It looks like the head is up to me too and the arms are straight out in a "hug me" position. This is so exciting!

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

sad you didn't get to hear the heartbeat!

super excited for a healthy nugget!!!

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

So cute!!! Sorry about the hb thing tho.. sad

I'd have to say that I'm pretty sure baby's head is at the bottom, with little arms poking out. Legs are really only stubs at this point yet and the head is super large compared to the rest of the body. I had lots of early ultrasounds and my tech was super awesome and pointed everything out smile

After 9 yrs & 1 devastating loss, we got our BFP at 9DPO ~ and welcomed our beautiful son on Halloween! Best treat ever!!

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

Congrats!!! Feel very lucky you don't get to do the red-blue flowy thing on US. I'm having them three times a week right now. You should have it done once for sure, then again if any growth issues are suspected. Some OBs will do it maybe a couple of other times.

Your baby looks great.

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

Awww cute! The head is on the bottom. They are quite "top heavy" at this point smile

What a bummer they didn't have the capabilities to hear the HB. Both my RE and OB offices let me listen to my babies heart beat. It is absolutely amazing. You will hear it soon enough. I bought the sonoline B HR monitor with baby P and picked hers up at 9w2d and im 9w3d and will probably try using it again in the coming week smile

#3 Due 3/26/14 and IT'S A BOY

Re: 8w3d ultrasound

I am sorry you didn't get to hear the HB but what a cute little bean!
