@UltrasoundTech:  My last ultrasound tech actually was talking to me about that, and about the fact that no one asks actual techs when they buy new machines so they end up with crap that doesn’t work properly because some big wig who doesn’t use them made the decision. Pretty much happens with most jobs unfortunately :(. But ya, I didn’t mean to offend you. I know techs are very sure what they are looking at.

@Sanola831:  I went in for an US at 6 weeks exactly and fetal HR was in the 90’s. They wanted me to repeat the US in 1 week and I too worried for a full week! When I went back the HR was in the 130’s. It’s hard not to be nervous, but I wanted to share my story with you and I hope it gives you some encouragement. Keep us posted. *hugs*

@UltrasoundTech:  I thought CRL is +/- 5 days from 6-12 weeks, or it is where I work.

I think you maybe misread my post..? But we go by 3 days for CRL and 2 weeks for GA and LMP.

I went in for my ultrasound for “dating purposes” last week and my little grain of rice was measuring one day ahead at 6w1day. I could see the little heart flicker on the screen. The tech measured the beats and it was 101 beats per minutes. She said that was perfect for how far along I was.
