Hi ladies. Thanks for reading and possibly responding to this. I am having my first ultrasound wed (i am so excited and nervous at same time) My question is this...I am 9 weeks and a few we for sure hear the heartbeat and possibly see movement?? It is going to be a va___al ultrasound. Thanks

I know you will deffinately be able to see a heartbeat. I had an ultrasound at 12 weeks and could see my daughter kicking her legs.

Yes, you should see and hear the heartbeat on the u/s. I think you should also be able to see movements.

Hay there girl, I dont think your suppose to have a v____al u/s babe, no need, your more that far enough allong. My first one was at 8w6d and I could see the heart beat but no movement yet, on my next u/s which was on 13 weeks, my bub was jumping and dancing so much I couldnt believe it!!! It was amazing. I'm currently 17 weeks along and going for my next u/s tomorrow aswell. Good luck and enjoy babes!!!!!!!

Well, I got a v____al ultrasound at 13 weeks. The tech said it was the only thing they had available, but I still got to see a lot. It was so neat. You will LOVE your ultrasound.

Hey I just wanted to say that it is possible to see the baby moving this early but make sure to eat something about 15 minutes prior to your u/s to try and wake him/her up. Had I known that haha I would have done it at my 9 week u/s but the baby was sleeping. haha

You should definitely see a h/b. I had my 1st u/s yesterday (I am 6 weeks as of today). It was a little to early for h/b - we just saw a little circle that is the yolk sac. Anyway, I go back in 2 weeks for another u/s (3-d) and should see the h/b then.

oh thank you all so much! i am not positive if it is a v____al or belly sonogram? either way, i am so excited i wont be able to sleep tonight! i am just praying everything is ok. thanks again! hh 9 mnths to all of you!


mgn - September 25

ps, come to think of it, they told me not to pee so does that mean it will be a regualr sonogram?? i hope....anyway to avoid stuff in my sha na na would be great! lol hope i didnt offen anyone there.

If they told you not to pee then it's probably an abdominal. They didn't tell me not to pee, though, for my next one. In fact, they take a urine sample at the beginning of each appointment, so I guess it must not make that much of a difference.


NicoleM - September 26

If they make you pee first it will be trans-v____al. If they tell you NOT to pee it will be abdominal. Mine at 6 weeks was v____al, but I don't know yet what they will do at my 8 week... hmmm


Tory1980 - September 26

They tell you not to pee as water is a transducer and will allow for clearer pictures. If you can drink a galss of cold water when waiting and it should wake the little one up (works throughout pregnancy too if you aren't sure on movements etc). You should see movement at 9 weeks (I have before then too with all my pregnancies bu the baby will often have a head still slightly bigger than the body at this stage but you will see the heartbeat etc. Enjoy!

had the 1st sonogram yesterday! so wonderful! it was abdominal b/c she said i was 2 far along for v____al (i am 9 wks 4 days) We saw and heard the heartbeat (a strong 167) and we also saw our little peanut move! it was the most amazing thing i have ever experienced. i am so sick this am with nasuea and headache but dont mind at all after seeing my little angel in there! amazing. thanks everyone for all ur help. god bless. mgn

Congrats on seeing and hearing the h/b! How wonderful! I can't wait for my next u/s in 2 weeks. I don't think we'll hear the h/b, but we should see it. I hope your m/s gets better soon.


sarah21 - September 27

Isn't it amazing?! Just wait until you hear the heartbeat. I heard it at my first appointment (went at 13 weeks because I had to wait for my insurance) and the Dr. did that before my ultrasound and it made me cry. I was bawling like a baby. It is so incredible.
