Well, the title says it all. I have had 6 pregnancies, my first resulted in my DD (now 5) who was born at 30 weeks when an ovarian cyst ruptured my artery (freaky, I know). I have gone on to have 5 m/c in the last 4 years, all in the first trimester. I am currently pregnant for the 7th time.:: However, my issue isn't just staying pregnant, it takes me quite a long time to get pregnant, 2 of these pregnancies have been IVF, 4 natural, 1 clomid. With all that said, I am super, super freaked out about losing this pregnancy. I'm now on lovenex and baby aspirin and I'm psyched that we are trying something new, something that might work, but I'm also quite leary that one shot and a baby aspirin is going to solve this. With all that said, I am thinking about refusing a vaginal ultrasound (most likely done at 6 wks) and also of not having sex until at least the 2nd trimester. What do others think? Really. If you disagree, please let me know. Refusing the u/s obviously is easier. They are strangers, I can say I refuse and just wait until they can see the babe on the abdominal ultrasound (probably around 7wks). I have not seen hard research that this can cause m/c, but during my 6th pregnancy, I went in for a 6 wk u/s and the tech asked me what # pregnancy this was and why I was having an ultrasound so early, when I explained the situation, she said "well, we'll just find that babe with the abdominal scan. They say these vaginal ones are safe, but let's not risk it." Note: I did m/c the pregnancy 4 days later w/o vaginal ultrasound. As for sex, w/ my dd 's pregnancy -- when I so, so believed that all pregnancies were normal and fine and one didn't have to worry about anything -- I did experience spotting after intercourse in the 2nd trimester. I just don't want to cause any potential problems, ykwim? Any thought?
