First ultrasound...where's the baby?

Hiding behind a very full bladder apparently.

We miscarried about 2 years ago and only saw a sac, but no baby. It was a blighted ovum. Needless to say, this time around I was super nervous about what I'd see in our first ultrasound. When my husband and I went in, the doctor was having a really hard time finding anything so she called in the U/S tech to give it a try. I guess a transvaginal U/S doesn't work when you drink enough water for the abdominal U/S. Oops. But after dealing with that issue, we found our baby!

We went in at 8w4d, and found out our baby is really 7w4d (no bigs!). Heartbeat clocked at 144 bpm! It was one of the most incredible things I've ever seen! We were both so relieved, we cried. Can't wait to meet this kid!

I guess we're due August 24 or so. Can't wait for our next appointment. :smileyvery-happy:

How did your first visit go?
