@MGC Bertie - they slow after around 15k to 72-96 hours. Google Beta Base. It's a great site where you can see other women's numbers and track your own.
Enjoy your scan today @MGC Bertie Xxx
Good luck for your scan today @McG beetle !
I ended up having mine last Friday, I posted a pic a few days ago everything was fine, bub measuring perfectly at 6w6d and had a nice heartbeat too!
We will be having another ultrasound in a few weeks when I'm booked in for the Harmony test. If there are any melb girls thinking of having this done Monash Ultrasound for Women have just dropped their price to $465 and if you can get a referral from your doctor they will bulk bill the ultrasound too.
Good luck to everyone having scans! Had my NT scan today and all good what a relief. Baby is 12w 4d size and I am 12w 2d so that's good. Heart rate 156 and trisomy 21 score 1:9312. All its bits were there and it was bouncing around all over the place! Now to wait for my next scan at 19 weeks, seems so far away. And buy some new pants in the next week lol. I still don't want to tell anyone but won't be able to hide it for too long anyway. Good luck to everyone at the moment!!
Thanks everyone... after stressing myself to beyond nervousness, the bub was there plain to see. In fact, DH was so excited and kept babbling and babbling to the doctor, and eventually I had to tell him to be quiet for a while so the doctor could do his thing and take measurements. Quite clear to see the sac, the little fuzzy bean-shaped blob measured 15.33mm, and the heartbeat flickering away brightly. I asked the doctor what the heartbeat rate was, but he's just a temp (as my FS is away), but he said it's definitely over 100bpm as he could tell by how fast it was flickering. They're taking my EDD from 14 days before IUI, as opposed to day 1 of AF, so my adjusted EDD is now 27/8/15 and today makes 7w5d, even though on the scan bub is measuring 7w6d.
I was expecting to cry, be emotional and had told DH he would need to hold my hand, but strangely I didn't feel like that at all - it was kind of like an out-of-body experience, rather weird. Very relieved and happy, to say the least, but I so wasn't expecting to feel sort of removed from it. I think it just still doesn't feel real :-)) Thanks everyone for thinking of me.
Yay! Today sounds like a good-luck day all around.....congratulations
My fourth scan was all good today too! Despite the heaviest bleeding yet this past weekend which was pretty much like a light/medium non-stop AF, there was still a perfect heart beat and growth
Omg, my Ob tried a belly scan but because I've got a tilted uterus, it took him a moment to find the heartbeat! I swear my own heart stopped for a moment as that was the exact same scenario as when I lost my 11 week angel bub with him searching and searching for the non-existent heartbeat and not saying anything and I just felt the *biggest* dread EVER!!!. BUT he said was sure that he could see a flicker but needed to do an internal......I don't think I've ever whipped my knickers off so fast in my life! And as soon as he started the internal I saw the heartbeat easily myself pretty much straight away.....this is where my own heart re-started....and everything is just as it should be!
I got a picture but it's crap and too black to share. I'm 9+1 today measuring 9+2. What a freak'n relief!!!
Ladydee... that's fabulous news - I hate silent moments!!! Lol, aren't we all great at getting our knickers off for anyone nowadays!!
I felt a bit like that Bertie. I still can't quite believe it's real. I forget I'm pregnant sometimes... when I'm not feeling nauseous!
