This is quick because of a few reasons..

1. I fell sick yesterday and I am like so tired and miserable right now, I feel awful
2. The stupid DVD from the u/s is being BEYOND difficult
3. My computer because of the stupid DVD is being BEYOND difficult for some reason?

So, there was a baby in there!!! YAY!! I feel a LOT of relief.. but a lil worried that it seemed smaller than 6 weeks 4/5 days or whatever I am based on LMP and O. We could barely see it, but it was there.. flickering little heartbeat. They tried to hear the hearbeat and got it like twice but it was soo small it was really hard to get it to be audible but you could definitely see it flickering away in there.

Ok.. back to fighting with DVD/computer to let me upload it and whatever.

Ok heres the video link!
YouTube - 6 weeks 5 days Ultrasound


WOO HOO!! got the video streaming on my computer finally and I *think* youtube is letting me upload it but its 10 min of video and its taking FOREVER.. so I did a few print screen images lol

It wasn't like a diagnostic ultrasound so they didn't do actual measurements.. and it was not a vaginal ultrasound so it being so small the guy didn't want to measure it basically is what he said.

The guy did however say from what he could see he didn't think I was more than 6 weeks like I had thought.

That's exactly what mine was like. Abdominal us it's so much harder to see the baby and measurements can be off. It's just not as accurate. You saw a heartbeat and that is what matters. Congrats

When I had an abdominal u/s at 6w2d they could see the sac but nothing else so they did a transvaginal. I wouldn't worry You saw the heartbeat and That's what counts!! Congrats!!

A vaginal ultrasound is superior this early. It's difficult to see things with an abdominal ultrasound until the end of the first trimester. I wouldn't worry about the size of the baby. The fact that you could see a baby and a heart beat is great! Congratulations!

looks great to me! My 6 week ultrasound with the twins looked like that. 5w6d they just saw sacs. 6w6d they saw 2 sac with tiny blobs. I wouldn't fret. It looks great. I am so happy for you!

I agree. My doc always did a vaginal ultrasound that early and we never heard the heartbeat that early but we could definitely see it so I wouldn't worry about that either. I think everything is fine in there.

Wait until you get to see the little gummy bear start to wave it's arms and legs in the air like it just don't care. That is the coolest thing to see when they are still so darn tiny.

So So So Happy for you Bonnie! That's wonderful! I agree with the pp...with it being abdominal and not vaginal it's accuracy may be off. You say and heard a heart beat and that's the best! Can't wait to join you!

HI Baby!!! I'm SO happy that you got to see a heart beat!! My EDD always got changed after the u/s based on the measurements. It's normal because even if you know when you ovulated, you don't know when the bean implanted. I hope that you feel better soon!!!

Im so glad it went well, when I had my u/s I as 6 weeks 0 days and they started off with the abdominal u/s and she seen the baby and everything, I could see it to, she also said she could see the heart flickering, but I couldnt see it. Everything was much more clear when she did the vaginal u/s and thats when she measured the babys heart beat and all and thats when I could clearly see the heart beat too. This adominal ones this early make it hard to see anything. Anyways, you got a heart beat and thats the first big step, I am so excited for you. Grow little baby grow!!! Oh and measurments when done with the u/s that way can be off, besides he didnt actually take any measurements he was just taking an educated guess. Dont let it bother you girl.
