Hi amulet,By right heartbeat can be detected by 6 weeks.. but sometimes baby might be younger than we think..
Last time wen i was pregnant with my girl, the sonographer can detect her heartbeat at 5.6weeks..
Yesterday we can only see a big amniotic sac.. We can't really see the baby, but the doctor says he can see and he thinks he can see what he thinks is the heartbeat.. LOL.. But for us, we are not professional, so our eyes can't really tell..
Scheduled for me to go back 2 weeks later.. Hope baby would be big enough to show us it's heartbeat clearly then!
5weeks is really too small .. did your doc schedule another date for you to go back?
Oh dear....Hi amulet,
Thanks for the sharing your checkup. Happy for u!
My Dr ask me go back 2wks later, which is next Friday. I will be 7 week by next Friday.
My first pregnancy didn't have heartbeat at 8weeks that y Dr say is gone. This is few weeks is really hard to pass for both of us cos we are at the same period like last time. I want hear the bb hb to feel secure..
i'm seeing Dr Wee Horng Yen.. He is detailed and friendly.. I know he is quite popular, but he seems quite young leh.. Hope he is right and really saw heartbeat ba..Thanks amulet. I'm staying positive n happy =)Dr say happen once doesn't mean happen agai. Each pregnancy is different.
Dr gave me hormone pills which help to support baby growth. So I'm sure I have good chance this time =)
I'm sure u can hear urs next appt! Since Dr already can feel the heartbeat is somewhere. Ur Dr power, must be very experienced.
My Dr always smile at me one, even gossip with me about air stewardesslol
Actually if u read through the leaflet in the digital test kit, they also mention u need to +2 weeks to the weeks u see on the kit which becomes the weeks u are pregnant..I'm seeing Dr Benjamin tham from TMC. Looks 40+ to me, change Gynac from my first for better luck hehee
Btw, why do they count bb weeks from our last Menses date. I find not accurate Le. I did digital test kit, it says 2-3weeks.but Dr will count from LmP so become 5weeks is liao.
When we have menses, no egg to fertilized. Ovulation only come like 2 weeks after menses over, bb then can form.
Crave for stronger tasting food ma.. I'm eating spicier and saltier than normal..ohh i see. ya, my test kit did ask me add one 2 more weeks but i just feel like why must add? hahaa me stubborn ..
but if that how dr calculate, then no choice.
today keep having a bitter taste in mouth, wana puke feeling. Got strong craving for MacDonald french fries! more salt somemore !!
*shake head .. unhealthy craving... bad mama
It should be bloatedness coz baby is far to small now to cause any bump.. If it's ur first pregnancy, ur bump would most probably show only in ur 4th month..Hi, I am new here and I just checked with 3 test kits toconfirm our suspicions and I am pregnant and seek for GP confirmation. But I am also quite doubtful abt the EDD. And because it's just the initial stage is it possible to have a little baby bump now or it might be due go gas/bloatedness? Now I feel uncomfortable wearing a belt but dono is it cos of bb. Can u all share w me if u also have similar issue?
Bloatedness is just one of the pregnancy symptoms.. Same for ur acne breakout and back aching.. Mouth ulcers could be coz u heaty ba.. As for body rashes, r u allergic to something? Coz that's not really a pregnancy symptom.. Pregnancy symptoms won't affect the baby in anyways.. It's just the pregnancy hormones at work..Thanks amulet for that. If is stomach bloatedness, will it harm the bb and shld I see the gynae soon? Is it common to have bloatedness for first time mommy? I am excited abt the bb but also worried. EDD is not that impt to me, jus that we are both curious of how to calculate it. Sometimes I will also wonder if I am really pregnant. Because it feels so miracle. I have acne outbreaks, body has rashes, back aching, mouth ulcers all these. Are all these symptoms common? I am quite worried actu.
i just tested for BFP last wednesday and did a BHCG test at my gynae's who confirmed I was at 4 weeks. I am in my 5th week today.
Just wanted to ask if you all experience any symptoms? I am having not much symptoms other than slight cramping at my lower ab and lower backache and feeling sleepy very early. I have had no morning sickness whatsoever. As this is my first pregnancy, I'm kinda worried about the lack of symptoms. I also do not feel pregnant, I do not have constipation either, in fact, I keep having this diarrhoea (sorry tmi) feeling after I eat.
My first scan with my gynae won't be until march, which I would be at 9 weeks then. Until then, I'm a nervous wreck :wong16:

start taking some folic acids while you make your choice of gynae..
EDD is calculated 40 weeks from the week of your last menses..
Take care! :
