I thought I posted here Friday after the apt like I did to the few other boards i visit regularly.
I had my 14 week check Friday. I was 14 weeks 4 days... lost another 5 lbs, and still feeling yucky. Dr and I talked and went over a few ideas on some food that might help... and things were going ok.
She has me lay down to check for the heartbeat, and couldnt find it. Asks if I am sure on my date of LMP... and yea, I am 100% sure of it. So she says that because of my size, and the fact it's still early she's not worried but she would send me for an ultrasound just to make sure of dates. So i make my next apt, and they schedule the ultrasound... originally Sept 11.... NO way can I wait that long. I get home... DH calls to see why they made it that far away. They say because it's no big deal, and there is probably nothing wrong. But agree to change it to the 5th (tomorrow) at 3:30. And make it a point to tell him they think baby is just hiding and that we should relax and not worry...
HOW THE HELL DO YOU TELL A PREGNANT WOMAN NOT TO WORRY ABOUT NO HEARTBEAT??????
I agree! I would be peeved that they would expect you to wait that long! Honestly I don't think a lot of the techs and doctors really care because they see it happen so much, if you kwim? I hope everything is ok and update ASAP!
The same thing happened to me once and I have no idea how they tell you something like that. As a matter of fact, when I had miscarried in 2005, the nurse said everything was fine, when I called to move my appt. they told me I actually had a us, I said no and missed it anyway. Well, I went back a week later and apparently that was a lie. The doc ordered one because of a low heartbeat and I lost the baby.
