My ob-gyn retired last year so I saw one I don't know at all. I have had four healthy children but youngest is 13 yrs old.
I am 41 and my fiance is 43. This pregnancy was a shock but very happy! My fiance also has 4 healthy children from a previous marriage. We found out February 11 that I was pregnant through the emergency room when I got sick. They said everything looked fine and I was about 6.5 weeks along. I went to an actually ob-gyn Monday, Feb 27th and the doctor stood at the door and a young nurse/doctor (not sure) did a vaginal ultrasound for no longer than 8-10 seconds and immediately looked at me and said baby is measuring at 8 weeks and there was no HB!
We were devastated!! Still standing at the door the Dr said it was probably genetics and our age.
We both have 4 perfectly healthy children w no complications! They did not discuss anything further! No followup appointment for anything! No bloodwork! NO actual vaginal exam. NOTHING!! I still feel very pregnant with all the symptoms!! I am gaining weight in my stomach and everywhere. Now I would be about 9 week along. I don't know what to do next!!
So for the past ,6 days I have been so upset but have faith that my baby is okay and they are just wrong about how far along I am by a couple weeks. How do they even know that I am supposed to be 8 weeks versus my baby measuring 6.5 weeks? None of this was explained and I guess I was in so much shock that I did not have much to say at that moment. I have had NO bleeding No pain and I still have pregnancy symptoms!
What Next? PLEASE HELP!! Thank You all !
