I had an u/s at exactly 6 weeks - the heartbeat was heard/seen by them when they did the transvag. . . one not the regular ultrasound.

Thats awesome, i meant to say the ultrasonographer did hear the heartbeat on the trans vag at 6 wks- but the doctor wont do it on the hand held doppler until 12wks. You had the same timing as me Its exciting-- I didnt see my baby again until 18wks-- and WOW what a change from 6wks! Reality certainly sets in!

Do you get another one later in pregnancy?

Wait for that one! The difference between 18wks-26wks-32wks... extraordinary!

It isnt standard for a normal pregnancy. If your pregnancy is normal with no complications- you only get 2. One to confirm pregnancy, and then the gender/anatomy u/s. Dh and I are going to look into getting one of the 4-D u/s around 30ish weeks though. I know we will have to go to an independant place but i think it will be fun to do.

I know sometimes they check closer to delivery time to see babies position-- but normally at my office you only get the 2.

Anyway, she had the ultrasound and they couldn't find a heartbeat. So the Dr told her that they are either too early or that there is something wrong. She's had no spotting or cramping, but she has had all of the early pregnancy symptoms. There are indications that it might be twins!

So my thoughts are that I thought that they CAN see the heartbeat at 6 weeks, but that you might not?? That plus the lack of spotting/cramping gives me hope...any thoughts? I don't think we saw the heartbeat until 8 weeks. Any thoughts?
When I went to my first ultra sound there was no heartbeat only a yolk sac. They said it was too early to date. I went back a week later and I was 7 weeks to the day and we had a strong heartbeat. Turns out I ovulated very late. It could just be too early.

Never buy a house with navy blue walls.... it took 4 coats of primer to cover Landons walls and now we still have to paint it the final color.

The house was filthy, I am going to be calling my realtor to complain. I mean I knew we would have to clean etc. but the state of the house is just unacceptable. The realtor listing the house offered to send a cleaning crew so I am going to let him know he absolutely needs to. It was very frustrating because I couldn't do anything, no one would let me clean or be around the paint and when I was painting a little it was exhausting. My husband sucks at painting, a 5 year old could paint better lol.

So tired! Photos to come.

This is a neat site that I check every Tuesday. I checked it the 1st time at 7 wks, and saved the address to my computer. She looked like an alien then, and now she is a perfectly formed baby. Just click on the week, and it will give you a detailed description of what is going on.

Normally at my Dr. you only get one (the growth/anatomy scan at ~18wks)... I just had that failed stress-test and such. Lucky me.

DH's new insurance policy covers 100% of all maternity care and delivery (including sonograms) so I might mention to her that we can take as many peaks at him to "watch his size" as she wants..
I totally would have done the 4D if they had a place around here! You have to post pictures if you decide to do it!!!!

...4 coats? Seriously?
Those poor walls... (and poor you guys, too!)
The worst thing we ran into was wallpaper under wallpaper.. ()...

So the house was empty when you guys first looked at it? Just curious.
I'd take them up on the cleaning crew, too! You don't need anything else on your plate-- don't they know you've got a nursery to create??
(My DH can't paint either.. I only trusted him with the 1 walk-in closet and I regret that now..)

Thats so cool! The first one I ever had was of Ella, and it was at 19 weeks.
It was done the morning BEFORE we got the news that amnio came back as negative for downs. It was a wonderful day


**
As far as primering walls...in DS's room, those walls were lime green...we primered them 3-4x just to paint them the soft gray (1 wall is an accent with a deep blue)....
If we ever move, I feel sorry for the person who wants to change the color in DDage8 room (and they will I"m sure).. she has 3 walls lavender, and 1 wall a turquoise like color......

Good morning all! I just thought I would check in. I have been lurking to keep up but just haven't posted (well, obviously-duh!).

Sarah-I hope your friend finds out some good news soon. I wouldn't give up hope just yet if I were her. It seems awfully early and especially if she is experiencing pg symptoms already-maybe thats a good sign.

Skylarr-we painted the bedroom in our old house with red and it took about 5 coats just to get it red, not pink! So I feel your pain for the ton of painting you have to do. I feel bad for anyone wanting a different color other than that red in there!

december-cool website! I subscribed so I could get the updated look every week.

homesweetdisney-the 4D u/s is soooo cool. I was so happy when my u/s tech flipped it on this last appt. She got me the two really cute B&W shots that I posted about a week ago. I'm glad I have them-I didn't have that option with Madeline.

I got my 3 hr. glucose test results back-3 out of 4 blood draws came back normal, the fourth just a little elevated so I just have to watch what I eat, eat sugar in moderation, etc. Then in four weeks they will do another 1 hour test on me again. So it wasn't terribly bad, I technically don't have GD.

BH contractions are still prominent though. I tried to start cleaning the house yesterday (I'm giving myself all week to clean it! ) but had to keep stopping because it would trigger one contraction after another. I have to be careful because it will start me spotting again.

MMKK, good news about your glucose test. Watch yourself before the next one and I am certain you will pass with flying colors.

Our house had all white walls. I had to twist DH's arm real hard to have him bring in some color. He finally gave in and we painted the nursery pale yellow. Now I think it is one of his favorite rooms in the house. If only he had more time I would beg him to paint more.

Morning everyone!

I have my 1 hour test today. I was wondering if I can eat right before it? I'm at work until 2, my appointment is at 3:15 and I don't get a lunch, so I was going to stop and get something, but I don't want it to interfere with the test...

They should have told you if it was fasting or not. For mine I couldn't eat 12 hours before. Obviously I went first thing in the morning! If you do eat I wouldn't eat anything really sugary or carb-centric.

I looked it up online. Seems like its common to tell women to fast if the test is first thing in the morning, but not in the afternoon.

I'm going to eat the rest of the chicken salad wrap I had yesterday--low carb, high protein! Good thing I dropped $8 on it! Stupid expensive coffee shop.
