Well mine was supposed to be at 12.5 weeks but when I went for it she told me I was a day short of 16 weeks.

She showed me the limbs, brain, heart, spine, ribs, and bladder.  Took a guess at the sex but wouldn’t confirm 100%.  We didn’t get a good profile shot due to how it was positioned.  But she printed me off a back shot (spine and back of head), one with partial face and hand, and a foot shot.

Mine was supposed to be the First Trimester Screening (NT) but she couldn’t do it as I was too far along.  So she just looked around instead.

I had my first ultrasound at 10+3. It was abdominal, and I didn’t have to drink a bunch of water or anything beforehand. We got to see the baby moving and hear her heartbeat 🙂

Twist my arm why don’t you 😉 I LOVE showing my first U/S pic off. This is my Junie B at 8+3 from Monday. Isn’t he/she a cute little blob? SIL thinks it looks like a chicken if you hold it sideways lol

@eecuadrado:  YES, I was quite shocked!  I had a period right on time (I thought) so I had no reason to test for pregnancy earlier than I did (I missed my second period).  But the tech said that lots of peoples bodies to crazy things when they go off BCP.

Ours was a pretty good profile pic. It was done at 12 weeks for our NT scan.

@eecuadrado:  This was at my NT scan at 11w6d. A huge difference from our first scan at 6w.  Have fun! 🙂
