Scare today

Feb 20, 2013 - 12 comments

So I had an appointment with the high risk Dr today and it gave me a BIG scare!!!! I went in and he did an ultrasound a said how far along are you? I said 8 weeks 3 days, he quickly said no your 7 weeks. He said did you hear a heartbeat last time, I said yes, He said i don't. I said are you sure, he said call your regular Ob and get an appointment asap to go over everything, and see you in 5 weeks. I was super scared and heartbroken! I had an appointment already for bad morning sickness. I went in and they were a little weirded out by his abruptness and coldness. They did an ultrasound and the first thing we seen was the heartbeat 152, and the baby moving around. I was so relieved and cried my eyes out. They also said the  baby is measuring 8 weeks 5 days. He took me off work until I am 4 months so I won't stress anymore. This has been a blessing for us!!! So happy!!!

I think you need a new high risk doc. Glad everything is ok and you got to see baby again!

If you saw a heart beat at 152 then I would go with that instead of what this other doctor says.
You seen it on screen so that means there was one....
However, to be safe I would suggest you should get a second opinion.
Please, don't wait 5's imperative that you know for sure now.
The first 12 weeks are the most dangerous.
Hope this helps...

Oh you poor thing - you must have been so freaked out - I can't believe that specialist put you through all that stress!  I am so glad everything turned out ok in the end and your beanie is ok xx

I cant believe the level of unprofessionalism you faced today. I am so sorry. If I were you I would report this to Medical/the AMA as regardless of what you have for insurance you deserve respect and to be treated with compassion
I am however very happy that you found a HB and pray this baby continues to grow and blossom
I would also see if you can contact Medical and explain to them the situation you are up against perhaps they can work with you and another Specialist who may not take Medical but perhaps will agree to take some sorta reduced/discounted payment from them. Good Luck!!!
