i dont know what to think

my doctor sent me to a lab to get a ultrasound at 9 weeks pregnant, because i asked for one. the lady doing the ultrasound wouldn't give any info. i asked her if there was a heart beat and she said yes but when i asked how many weeks am i she said that she couldn't tell me my doctor would let me know. I thought they would show me images and talk to me about it more.

7 1/2 week ultrasound

I went in yesterday for my 7 1/2 weeks ultrasound they had a hard time with the ultrasound because I have a tilted uterus so they switched to a transvaginal one they found my little bean pole but he kept getting lost. Then they said there's no heartbeat. Let me get the doctor the doctor walked it there for a min and goes yep no heatbeat not a viable pregnancy and walks out says sorry as she's leaving. I got dressed and was ascorted out the back door of course this is my first pregnancy do it came as rather a shock how cold hearted she was and the fact that she didn't take over the ultrasound so I went home and called another obgyn and he had me come in and are rerunning my blood work and redueing the ultrasound I'm so nervous and anxious.

Can also be traumatic

that transvaginal ultrasounds can be traumatic, not just embarrassing, if: 1) it's being done against her will, or 2) she has a history of being raped or sexually assaulted

7 weeks 6 days

I had my 2nd ultrasound today to confirm whether I may be pregnant with twins or not as first suspected in my 1st ultrasound 3 weeks ago. I was nervous and excited to say the least. After confirming it was indeed twins (2 sacs etc) and seeing the 2 embryos she then confirmed how far along I was 7wks 6 days but then delivered the bad news that there was no heart beats or blood flow. It's been 16 years since my first pregnancy and I was so excited. I have now spent the afternoon in tears and have a drs appointment tomorrow to find out where to go from here. Should I wait and have another ultrasound or take the option of a d&c? I'm just heartbroken

had a miscarriage at twelve weeks

to start of the pregnancy was a total suprise i was really stressed out and lost the baby at 12 weeks had to have an d&c done twice because the doctor didnt get it all the first time, it was quiet devestating, having two d& c back to back and being in the hospital because i was bleeding out like i delivered a newborn.

Early ultrasound

I had an ultrasound due to some bleeding during intercourse and my doctor said it was normal. It was my first visit to confirm pregnancy and since my last period was in january (march was this appointment) they were telling me I was 9 weeks. With the transvaginal ultrasound, they were able to tell I was only 6 weeks pregnant. Always ask your doctor anything if you are in doubt. Hope it helps :)

Ultra sound

My boyfriend and I have recently found out that we are expecting! We are very excited first time parents. I went in for my first ultrasound at 7w3d. Our doctor was unable to see anything on the screen and decided to schedule me in at the hospital for a better ultrasound at 8 weeks. She had explained there is a possibility of an ectopic pregnancy. My doctor told me not to worry or stress as it is common not to see baby in the early stages of the first trimester. Naturally I am feeling worried and nervous for this upcoming ultrasound. Is anyone else going through the same experience?
