My dh and I are in Europe now and this is my 3th pregnancy. I have a child now. I miscarried 3 times one at 20 weeks due to a infection in the sac. And the other 2 at 6 weeks and now iam 5weeks pregnant. I lost the 6week pregnancy in May this year & the other one in 2002, and wasn't planning on getting preggy but it happend with birthcontrol *shrugs*.
They do so many things diffrent here. I have my first appointment in 2 weeks. They will give me a vaginal sono and then do the papsmear. I don't know if I want the Vaginal Sono yet. I always bleed after wards. Can any of yall give me advice on what I should do???
I am so sorry and yet so excited for you! I have not been blessed yet after my MC, so I don't have experience with that, but all you can do is hope for the best. It might be good for you to see your baby on the U/S and I'm sure the doctors wouldn't do anything that would hurt the baby. If you really don't want to do it, I would see if you could postpone the appointment a few weeks and then by the time you go in, you should be able to see the heartbeat!
Good Luck! I'm sure it will all be fine.
Congrats on the pregnancy & I'm so sorry for your losses. I've also had 3 miscarriages and was extremely scared the 4th time I got pregnant.
I had a vaginal ultrasound at 6 and 8 weeks with this one and everything went fine - also had the pap at 12 weeks and didn't have any bleeding.
Are they aware of your history? If you are really concerned I would make sure and voice it right when the appointmen starts - just so they know how you are feeling and what you have previously experienced.
I have gone through 3 miscarriages and hopefully after surgery next month I will be able to ttc soon and get pg again. I am now going to an infertility doctor and I asked him if it is safe for my obgyn to give me a pap smear and also an ultrasound (inside) at such an early stage. My infertility doctor reassure me that it is safe. He said you would be surprise at how far away your baby is from the area that your doctor does your exams. My infertility doctor made me feel so safe about this so next time when I get pg I won't be worry about the obgyn hurting my baby. I trust my infertility doctor soooooo much, I mean I trust my obgyn/gyno too but the infertility doctor made me feel better because he specializes in miscarriages. I hope I was able to make you feel better and more at ease.
