Thanks Blissfully, sorry about the horrors you went through. Here in France they are much more laid back about everything and would never use scare tactics.
Seafox, I too, have a tipped uterus (since giving birth to DD). I wasn't aware that this could have an effect on the u/s! I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't delay the u/s a bit... last Thurs my gyn said to have a scan "in a week" (i.e. at 6 weeks). Should I wait a little longer than that?
