Westsidebee -- 8w3d u/s
westsidebee posted:
Ultrasound went well today! Baby measured 8w3d, and the heartbeat was 173 bpm. We could see tiny arm and leg buds (not moving yet, they were so small), and an umbilical cord.

Also, last week at my u/s, there was some extra blood in my uterus, and that seems to have resolved itself and gone away. Whew! Everything looked good.

I go back one week from today for my last appt with my RE (hopefully, fingers crossed), before going over to my ob/gyn. I wonder did everyone else switch over at about 9w?
deliela999 responded:
That's great! My RE released me at 8w3d. My OBGYN moved offices the next week (last week) and his nurse didn't want to drag me into that wreck so my appointment with her is tomorrow at 10 weeks and I'll probably see him next week.
melikib responded:
Yay congrats! We moved to our OB at about 8w 2d...a little earlier than what they normally do but that's just where my appt fell. It was such a great day. Happy to hear you had a great appt today!

I switched over from my RE to OB and high-risk OB around 8 or 9 weeks. I had a blood clot around that time that resolved itself a few weeks later. I'm glad the extra blood you had is gone now. 173 is a nice, healthy heartbeat. My twins' heartbeats were in the 180s and 190s until I hit the 2nd trimester.

Sounds like a great appointment! So excited for you! I have my first OB appointment right at 10 weeks, so I think you are right on track! Take care!
