I need some reassurance. I know that it is a good thing when the dr. doesn't need to perform an ultrasound for another 6-7 weeks, but is it too much to ask for clarification? Sorry if I'm sounding harsh, but some of my students made so mad that I was literally shaking.

Anyway, the nurse called me today and said that my u/s results came back normal, but it was very small. I don't know what she meant by that. At the time of the u/s, I was measuring ahead by 3 days, so how could my peanut be too small? I tried to ask for clarification, but I couldn't understand her. I called the advice nurse and left a message to see if she could give me some clarification.

I'm just waiting for her to call back. At least I have an appointment Monday.
************************************************** ************************************************** **
Update: I called the main advice nurse and she gave me a clear answer. I had a feeling she would. I guess the other nurse thought I wanted to know info like bone length and anatomy. I know it's way too early for that. So that is what the other nurse was referring to when she said my peanut was too small. I still haven't gotten info on if my subchorionic hem is gone or the hb rate, but I will ask that at my appt on Monday.

I do have one other question, though. The high risk doc said that I could go off of the baby aspirin if I want to. He said that it wouldn't help or hurt. I am thinking of going off of it once I know there is no subchorionic hem. However, if there had been one, wouldn't he have told me during the u/s?

hmmm...i have no idea what that would mean. if there was a problem, i think they would have told yoiu. maybe she was just saying that the baby is really small at this stage in development.

nurses are the worst people you will deal with in a doctors office...they have no bedside manner. on the plus side, all the nurses at the hospital where i delivered were GREAT!

Yeah, I agree that I think they would have told you if something was wrong. Thats too bad she was so vague... she probably didn't think anything of telling you it was small, not realizing that is just confusing.

That is weird that they'd make a comment like that and not say anything more. I hope you get some clarification soon.

When I was pregnant with Holden I had a doctor (not one of my regular doctors) tell me my amniotic fluid was "weird" and never clarified what that meant. I totally freaked out until Holden was born and it ended up being nothing (I think).

I hate when people do that! I'm sure if something was wrong they would have made that very clear, still incredibly frustrating though

What exactly did she say? I'm sure if it was anything to worry about, your Dr would have had you come back in or something. Try not to stress over it.

sounds like she may have meant that a baby that age is so small anyways, try not to worry

I'd wait and ask your Dr all your questions when you see him/her. Write them down so you don't forget and don't be afraid to ask as many as you have, that's their job! I have no idea about the baby aspirin.

U/S this early my doc said can be off by 4 days either way. so that can make a difference.

for the hem..... I have been told that they are quite normal and are not worried, at least for mine.
