Ok so please dont freak me out with your answers
I am 13 weeks 3 days pregnant now. At 8 weeks 4 days I had my first u/s and we saw the heartbeat just pumping away. It measured at 178 beats. I have my second u/s along with all the fun blood testing/pap smears, etc. tomorrow.
So hear is my big question. what's the difference between hearing the heartbeat and seeing the heart beat. i thought if we saw the heartbea that was a really good thing but i see all these people (not on this board) freaking out about not hearing the heartbeat. I figured it was too early at 8 weeks to hear it but tomorrow for sure i'm sure they'll at least try to hear it.
this might be a dumb question (but bear with me as this is my first child)...why do you need to hear it? I know the obvious answer to WHY you want to hear it but but can there be something wrong if you see the heart beat but dont hear it?
these might be dumb questions and please dont think of me wrong but no one has answered this and at my doctor's office, (apparently the best in the state), they only see you after 8 weeks (they wont see you before) and they only do an ultrasound at 8 weeks to see how far along you are. i havent had any other testing done, no blood work, no pap, nothing until tomorrow when they see you between your 13th and 14th week. i only had about 10 mins to talk to my doctor at my first ultrasound and of course had a million questions for her but now that its been 4 more weeks i have a TON more. i guess more technical questions now.
any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
