Ultrasound At 7 5 Weeks

Peachtree - February 9

Hello everyone! I am currently 9w/4days along (due Sept 10). I had an abdominal ultrasound done at 7.5 weeks (I miscarried in Sept '06 with my first pregnancy, so I wanted an early u/s this time to make sure everything was ok). I saw the little bean (really just a smear across the screen) and we saw and heard the heartbeat. The heartrate was at 167 beats per minute, and the little bean measured at 1.17 cm. Has anyone else had an u/s done at this stage and had similar results? I'm worried that the heartrate is too high (although I never heard anything back from my midwife to say anything was wrong)...but I just want to know about other people's experiences.

Hi peachtree, I had my first u/s done at 7w3d, my baby measured 1.23 cm and the heartbeat was between 150-160. I don't your h/b was too high. If it was your midwife would have commented. Anyway, I saw my baby again this week at 9w1d and it was 2.4 cm h/b was still good. Take it easy and try not to worry, I'm sure all is well.

Hi peach tree don't worry my baby's heartrate was 160 or 165 I think its a good range I believe I was around 11 weeks though I don't know if that matters.

Thanks everyone. It seems like I was pretty well on track when I was 7.5 weeks, that's so good to know. I'm trying not to worry, but it's so difficult. I think the problem is we have TOO much access to information! When I looked on the internet at other ultrasound pictures at 7 weeks and 8 weeks, they all looked so much bigger than my picture looked. It seemed like some of them even had shape to them already (you could clearly see the head). Mine just looked like a little smear...

I hear you, peachtree. I was worried b/c i saw those u/s pics, too. Unlike those pics, my baby had no distinguishable head or arms. Of course, when I had my 2nd (9w1d) u/s on monday, my baby was more clearly visible, i saw a head and stubby arms and legs!
