My son kicked me super hard this morning in my lower belly, and I started cramping really bad. So I went in for an ultrasound. With Peter all my ultrasounds took place at Maternal Fetal Medicine, where they have a big tv on the ceiling so you can see and they explain what they are seeing.

Well today they didn't have any openings at MFM so they sent me to the hospitals, main radiology. They wouldn't even let me see! I barely got a glimpse. I think I saw something in there. They said I was early, and I was barely pregnant enough to see anything. I am certain they didn't get a HB, cause I would have heard it. But they refused to tell me anything! I have to wait until my midwife calls me!

This was supposed to relax me, but I am now more stressed out! GRRRRRRR!!!!!!

I freaking hate that! That's why I hate going to the hospital here. The will not show you anything and you have to wait and see your doctor for results. I hope they call you soon and give you great news!

I hope they call you soon.
That's one thing that I am more afraid of is DS kicking me, he has but not very hard.
It bites that they won't you anything, I honestly don't see why they that...

I know you said you were not 100% on your O date, so if you were within a week of your ticker date, that would show just a sac at this point, maybe not even a yolk. But on the flip side, at 6w2d I went to the ER with Selena, and the radiology person would not let me see anything and she did not say a word to me. I did not hear a h/b and I could not even get a glimpse of the screen (she laid me completely down).

I had to wait 1hr for the ER doc to come in and tell me that the hb was 124bpm and I measured exact at 6w2d. I thought for sure that since I could not hear anything or see anything and she would not say anything, that it was over. Apparently, radiology techs are trained more so to not turn up the volume on the h/b until after 8wks. But it was there!

praying you get piece of mind sooner rather than later!

Hopefully you'll get good news.

Try not to stress about not hearing the heartbeat. Even though most of my ultrasounds are with the normal clinic my doctor works out of I have never heard my baby's heartbeat during an ultrasound. So it could be the machine doesn't make the heartbeat audible or it could be that they have the volume turned down as part of the "don't tell the patient anything" policy.
