so i went to my doctor today for 10 week check up and he couldn't find a heartbeat... i had a sonogram 1 week ago and there was a heartbeat then and baby looked just fine
i know it can happen.... maybe its too early for the doppler.... BUT
then my doctor went on saying "1 in 5 women miscarry so if you do don't be discouraged. i don't want you having any sex and go on bed rest for 3 weeks. come back and ill see if there's a heartbeat"
naturally that statement got my mind all screwed up now. im thinking... is something wrong??? why did he sound so negative??? now i have to wait for 3 weeks to know if everything is going to be OK?? i thought everything was fine???
He put you on bed rest for not finding a heartbeat at 10 weeks? I would get a second opinion.
Logically speaking, it's ok for them to not find a heartbeat via doppler at 10w. It's very hard to hear those words though and it's even harder to hear that you have to wait 3 weeks to hear/see that everything is ok.
I do find it strange that he put you on bedrest though.
They couldn't find my DD's heartbeat with the doppler when I was like 12weeks. They pulled out the ultrasound machine and she was fine :). Don't stress
i feel like i want a second opinion. but where would i even go for that?? i have 3 young children and for him to tell me to go on bed rest isnt too realistic for me... i mean the baby looked fine just last week??? could something bad happen that fast?? i have no bleeding.... no cramping..... i feel just fine? so WTF? my husabnd now is all worried i feel like he got us all worked up and scared.... and over possibly nothing?
The same thing happened with my second DD at my ten week check up. My doctor could not find her HB with the doppler. I was freaking out so she sent my for an emergency scan by telling them I had bleeding(I didn't but she wanted me to get in ASAP). As soon as the tech put the probe on there her heart was beating away. Try not to stress, everything is most likely fine. Good luck!
Quoting DanyAllen123:" i feel like i want a second opinion. but where would i even go for that?? i have 3 young children and ... [snip!] ... just fine? so WTF? my husabnd now is all worried i feel like he got us all worked up and scared.... and over possibly nothing?"
You could contact the office and ask to see a different OB.
My doctor wouldn't even use the doppler on me until I was 12 weeks.
