We went to the OB on Monday and he did an U/S. Baby doesn't look like it's grown much in the past week. That's all I could make sense of what he said since my MIL has got to be the worst translator e.v.e.r. We'll be going again either sometime this weekend or Monday for a follow-up. If it's bad news I'm pretty sure I'll be flying home soon afterwards rather than wait for anything to happen here.

Yes, we're visiting my ILs in Europe. DH just arrived over the weekend and he was so excited to see the U/S.

Im so sorry...must be doubly difficult to have to deal with this when you aren't home with your own docs and in your own space. Ditto getting checked again if you come home...sending positive thoughts.

See that's the thing - they don't even look for a heartbeat here! They just go by measurements. And from how he does the U/S it's all just very blurry, nothing like how the U/Ss look in the states. He's like "Well you can't see anything." Ummm.. I'm sorry, I've been pregnant before and at 8 weeks I was able to tell a head from a foot. This is all just one big blur. So ridiculous.

He said that baby was measuring 6 w, 6 d when by LMP I was supposed to be 8 weeks. But the week before that he said I was measuring 4-5 days behind anyway so it doesn't really seem like I'm all that behind compared to my previous U/Ss. I was always measuring behind.

And if its that blurry....couldn't he be making the difference of 3-4 days all on his own? Weird that they don't look for the heartbeat.

So sorry. I hope it's just the difference between there and here and all is fine. I don't know that 6+6 is that far off if you were already measuring behind from 8 weeks. It seems 7+2 isn't that different than 6+6, especially in a blurry sonogram.

I hope it is just a crappy doctor and crappy u/s machine. Sorry you're having to go through this stress.

How are your symptoms?? Have they stalled at all?? Honestly I think you should try not to stress and wait until you get home! As long as you're not bleeding or cramping Try to think positive. I know that seems impossible but he seems like a quack!

I never really had any symptoms from the very beginning so to me nothing's really changed. And he's always asking me if I have any. I didn't have many with DD either, just fatigue and sore boobs but those went away quickly. My mother said she didn't have any symptoms whatsoever with me or my brother so that shouldn't make a difference. The only thing I have this time around is sore boobs and I still have them once in awhile.

Ugh, the waiting game is going to kill me before anything else

I went yesterday and he said that there was minimal growth and to do a D&C. He's diagnosing me as a missed abortion (isn't it missed miscarriage?). I said thanks for nothing and booked a flight home. Leaving on Wednesday and going to see my own OB on Thursday. I can come to terms with my own doctor telling me that it's not a viable pregnancy but I don't trust Mr. "Minimal Growth" jumping into a D&C.

Judging by the U/S I think the measurements did grow but not as much as he would have liked? I still couldn't tell anything off of the screen but I feel much more comfortable having everything done at home instead of here.
