Why don't you think you can get one sooner? A lot of providers will do a dating scan on the first visit. Is that not an option for you?
My provider is a homebirth midwife. Appointments will take place in her home office. I don't think she has an ultrasound device. She doesn't require for her patients to have any ultrasounds. She probably would recommend it if she noticed something that would indicate it's usefulness. I just did research on ultrasounds again and they seem like they aren't the safest thing out there. I'm thinking I might do a "basic" scan or something at 20 weeks, not a full anatomy scan. I don't know. I'll ask my midwife about it when I see her probably around 10-12 weeks for the first appointment.
Hi everyone. I am new, - will introduce my self on the intro page once i figure out what to say. I tried but i seem to be a bit preoccupied when it comes to what tosay or how to talk about pregnancy. I feel so private, in a way.Thank you all for being here with me, hopefully i will feel more comfortable soon. I just got a call about my hcg and i am feeling pressured about doing an ultrasound. Not sure if i want to or need to. So confused about hcg,i guess they were making sure things are normal and i did the first blood test 27,197 then 48hrs later it was above 35000..The numbers sounded strange compared to what i have been reading, dont want to exhaust myself figuring it out. They were saying something about my numbers being high and they said my LMP couldve been Sep27ish, but it was Oct3, not a big difference i guess. I only tried to concieve once, Oct18, after i peed on an ovulation test two days prior that looked positive.Now i am going a little off topic but its all related in a way. Just wanted to bounce this off you all and see if its normal and then try to decide about ultrasound. Thats all for now, so tired.
What is your reluctance to getting an u/s?
