Went to mw this afternoon I was nervous but wanted to be reassured there was something in there. But she couldn't get a heartbeat. I'm pretty sure I'm 13 weeks now. She said it might not have lifted out of the pelvis yet or that my dates might not be right. She didn't seem worried at all, but now have a dating scan for 16th May.
But now I feel terrible, I'm fearing the worst and can't stand the 2 week wait. Even thought about telling them I've got severe cramps (which I haven't) just to be seen quicker, that's terrible isn't it?
Wondered if it had happened to anyone else and it turned out ok? Just would like some good news
oh my god!!!! you have been treat terribly!!!
get yourself down to day unit of you maternity hospital, they will scan you asap and put your mind at rest!!!
this happend to me at very early MW appointment, and she told me if she couldnt find the heart beat, shed send me to ours for scan!!!!
Agree with everyone here. GP tried to listen to heartbeat at, can't quite remember if it was 14 or 16 weeks, couldnt find it so sent me there and then to hosp for emergency scan. Sonographer was really mad because she said the gp should not have even been trying to find it so early.
rodeo1 - I am not surprised your M/W could nothear the heartbeat with the doppler. She should have said firmly there was no point doing it before 16 weeks. The reason being it was unlikely that she would find it and that would cause unnecessary worry!
