I had a scan at 9 weeks today, baby didn't move at all, which I expected as it was just a peanut, but I couldn't see the HB until it was pointed out and even then it only seemed to beat twice and really slowly.
Sonographer said the baby was fine though.
With my first two I saw the HB on a 12 week scan and you couldn't miss them.
Yeah I think this is normal. It gets more obvious the bigger the baby gets. They grow at a dramitic rate so I wouldnt worry about it. If there had been a problem they would have said. Congratulations xx
One concern I have is that according to my calculations, our first scan is only going to happen 2 days before the end of the period in which a nuchal scan is useful. If we're wrong with the date of the pregnancy, or we can't attend that booking, then the nuchal scan might not work...
Anyway, I found a couple of private places which will be able to do it for us. If I can't find a free one, we'll go with that.
We don't usually get scans until 12 weeks here and early scans are offered to people who have had miscarriages or other problems.
My scan was an error and I shouldn't have had it until October (12 weeks), paper work mix up or something and when I phoned to cancel (I don't have any reason for an early scan) they told me to come in anyway and I have to go back in October for a proper 12 week scan.
