At 9 weeks a scan would have shown if you were having twins. Are you sure you are not just eating too much? I had twins and wasn't even showing at 3 months. Some women can hardly look pregnant right up until the 9th month, while others could sit a dinner plate on their tummy. It's doubtful you are having twins, but, you are obviously retaining a great deal of fluid (embryo fluid) and once you've had the baby it won't take that long to get back to somewhat of a normal state. Congratulations!
An ultrasound at 6 weeks should show a fetal heartbeat, if there was a fetal heartbeat you're not miscarrying.. It's probable you estimated your due date wrong.
It is possible but not always accurate. No, the strength of the heartbeat depends which way the baby is laying in the uterus.
If you have an ultrasound at 9 weeks and there is no heartbeat detected, that means your pregnancy isn't viable and you're having a miscarriage. But if you're talking about not being able to hear the heartbeat via Doppler at 9 weeks I wouldn't worry too much as sometimes dopplers can't pick up a heartbeat until around 14 weeks.
We found out at 16 weeks what we were having. It's possible but only if your baby cooperates.
The risks of having a pregnancy ultrasound are minimal compared to the benefits. The ultrasound is not an invasive procedure, but can provide a good picture of how the baby is developing.
It can be too early to hear it or it doesn´t have one. When having a ultrasound you should ask the doctor these things. That is the best chance to find out why yours isn´t heard.
It is possible for the doctor to tell when they do the first ultrasound, at about 10 weeks. However, twins can be tricky and some will hide behind the other. In general though, you can tell at about 10 weeks with the first ultrasound.
Yes, if one twin is hidden behind the other or is much smaller than the other one.
The only way to know for sure is by having the ultrasound.
Through an ultrasound.
Depends on the ultrasound - some you have to drink a lot of fluids and others you must fast. If you are having an ultrasound done you should be told what is expected of you for preparing.
It is impossible to tell by rate of the heartbeat. Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is speaking old wives tales. The above answerer said that you can tell for sure by an ultrasound. You cannot. Sometimes the baby keeps its legs together or is at a difficult angle and you sonographer can't see, and sometimes it is just impossible to tell.
No No Not true. I am living proof, got an ultrasound thinking that I was 8 weeks pregnant to detect a heartbeat, only surprise I was in fact only 6 weeks pregnant with three amniotic sacs with three embryo's meaning triplets. However, I have to wait yet again to detect any heartbeat activity.
At the first ultrasound
Ultrasound or amniocentesis.
Ultrasound scan requirements vary depending on the type of ultrasound. For example, for a pregnancy ultrasound, the woman is expected to drink 4 glasses of water and not relieve her bladder for an hour before the scan.
Amniocentesis. However this procedure carries risk that ultrasound does not. Discuss these things with your doctor.
Yes, a person can die without having a stomachache. There are a lot of fatal conditions and diseases that do not cause stomachaches in the affected person.
Ok, think. If it wasn't possible the doctor couldn't do it. They can even operate on a baby before its born.
You can see on the ultrasound sometimes
Pull it out or stick your head in there
The only way to tell is to get an ultrasound.
Having sex YAY
Gender can usually be determined around 20 weeks into pregnancy with an ultrasound.
Either by having an ultrasound scan, or by having the amniotic fluid tested.
