u/s tomorrow

It's super early (5w4d) so I doubt they will see much but I guess my OB said that based on my hcg levels, they are high enough to see something. My last two pregnancies were early losses so he's just checking for viability. Send lots of prayers and thoughts that we see what should be there by now!

Good luck! I am also headed for an US Friday (I'll be 7 weeks) and I had early losses in March and July. I will be thinking of you and hoping we can both share good news here.

Good luck to you both!

It started well and ended badly.  She said she saw what she thinks is a yolk sac and what "may" be a baby but too little to see. She said that's all she'd expect to see by now anyway. But then she leaves the room to see if the doctor wants any more pictures. She comes back and says "let me look at you externally. But don't worry." So she starts that u/s. I ask her what she's looking for and she says, "I can't say.  Cause what if I'm wrong?" I said, "can the doctor here say?" and she said, "He needs time to think about it."  The only thing that she gave any clue about was that during the internal u/s she asked me if anyone has ever told me that I have a bicornuate uterus.  So now I'm just stressing until my doc calls.

! That's completely absurd that they would withhold information from you like that, even if it's not confirmed.

 

Do you like your doctor otherwise? Because I think if that happened to me I'd be asking around for a different OB. I always demand that my doctors be upfront with me; I'm an adult, and I'm their patient, not their child.

 

Crossing my fingers for you, hopefully it's nothing. :/

That is terrible!!!  And what does the doc need to think about?  I hope someone tells you something soon.  Thinking of you. grouphug.gif

It wasn't the OB - it was the u/s tech that did it. My OB is actually far away so I see someone locally for u/s.  I won't be using him for the pregnancy/birth. I've just used him with our infertility/miscarriage struggles.  

 

I have the worst luck with u/s techs too. They either tell you nothing which terrifies you or tell you just enough to terrify you. I swear, if she doesn't know something definitely than lie to me- just say she needs to get measurements of the uterus because this early it's easier to see externally.

Oh, that sounds really frightful. A darn shame that it was handled in that way. She very well could have been taken measurements of your uterus and so on if you have a bicornorate uterus, though. Keep us updated, Calli.

BRUTAL- that is so frustrating! I am thinking about you and I pray that your Dr gets back to you ASAP so you don't have to sit in limbo! HUGS

post #13 of 17

WHaaaaaat?? I can't believe they'd keep something like that from you callie!!! The doctor didn't even come in to speak with you? I'm hoping you get some answers soon hug2.gif

Sorry you're having to deal with that stress.  :(  I agree, she should've just made something up.  I hate it when people say, "Don't worry...."  Of course that automatically makes you worry!  :(

 

Thinking about you!

Thanks everyone!  I guess it makes it more complicated that I go to an imaging center rather than were my OB is (he's an hour and a half away), but still, they should be able to get info to me quickly. I missed the nurse's call because I was at work. SHe just said that they couldn't see too much since it was early and that they want me to have a follow up one in 7-10 days.  She didn't mention anything else so I'm not sure why they did an abdominal u/s and what the tech was talking about. I'm talking to the nurse again tomorrow to set up the next u/s so hopefully she'll have some idea of what the tech was talking about. i'm hoping the tech was clueless and just "thought" she saw something but when the u/s doc reviewed it and my OB reviewed it, they both disagreed with her theory of something being wrong. Who knows.  I'm trying to believe that no news is good news...

Hoping all goes well and at least someone tells you what is going on! I would NOT hesitate to call the doc and have someone explain what is going on.

Ultra sound techs *cannot* diagnosis, etc. So they have to wait for the doctor to review, etc.  As frustrating as it is, they are not doctors and would be overstepping their role if they did give you too much information.  The most I've gotten from an ultra sound tech is "It looks good but you will have to review with you care provider (OB or midwife)."
