It's unlikely for a first time mum, it would depend how big her uterus was. Not sure what you mean by 'checking her belly' - do you mean they couldn't hear a heartbeat?
No. They did not use a doppler or do ultrasound. They had put their hand on her belly I think to check the position of the baby and trying to make him move.
She had some flutters at 14 weeks and today she told me that she has not feel anything for the past few days.
Well I wouldn't expect her to feel anything until 16w at the earliest. So she certainly shouldn't be worried about not feeling anything now.
But I really don't understand why a doctor would expect to feel a 14w fetus from the outside. That is very, very peculiar.
She is very worried. She had a miscarriage last October at 5 months. Her baby heartbeat had stopped and she did not cramped or bleed. It was found ultrasound.
I don't really know what to suggest. I can imagine she's really stressed. I've never heard of any doctor doing that at 14w. They should have checked with a doppler or an ultrasound if they thought there was a problem. IF she had had another missed miscarried (and I'm not saying she has) the priority would be getting the fetus out ASAP - not waiting for 3 more weeks.
If she can she needs to speak to another doctor or a midwife who can check the heartbeat with a Doppler or a scan so she knows what's happening.
I think she will take an appointment elsewhere. Thank u
Almost everyday I've felt something like the min I turned 14 week's.. But now I'm 15 week's and a day. I felt nothing today.. I was surprised to feel my baby that nearly at 14week's... Maybe he or she is moving she doesn't feel him or her when they do....
Wooo that looks so freaky ....im so sorry for ur friend i know and understand her felling cuz i was there ...i lost mine too and i have no words to describe the felling ...but she is only 14 why he would make her feel so bad for no reason?He should do a sono a blood work or who knows what else but just by touch her belly(her very small belly) he said something is wrong??..i'll definetely find another provider cuz this one looks so stupid...im sorry about bad words but i get very upset when they stress womans for nothing....hope everything goes perfect for ur friend...sending her my bests wishes.
