I went for an u/s last tuesday at 6 weeks 3 days. They didn't see a heartbeat. This was a STAT reading. My Dr.s office has YET to call me with the results. I think with 2 miscarriages in the past that they should be sending me for another one today (1 week later) Am I being to pushy? I feel that she should have called me and just let me know that "Hey! There wasn't a heartbeat yet, but that is normal. Let's follow up in 1 week" NOW I do have an appointment this coming tuesday the 15th, and she will more than likely call me in an u/s. The question is do I wait, or do I call the nurse and demand one today, and tell her that I don't think it was right for her not to call me with the results. I am feeling like such a number with them. Shouldn't they be monitoring me more carefully?

Laura, I would call for sure. I hate that they look at us as numbers sometimes. Did they ever test to see why you miscarried? Have they done blood work this time to see what your levels are? I would not even think about anything except getting on the phone. Good luck!

ummm. They checked my levels 3 times within the first week of finding out. But nothing since and that has been almost 1 month ago. They tested the last D&C results, and it was a chromosome defect. They didn't test the first D&C. I just called and left her a message expressing my concerns, and telling them what I think they should have done. (without being to nasty)

Were your numbers increasing?? I hope they call you back and schedule you in for another u/s. What do you mean by stat reading?? Sometimes it takes long to see and hear anything at 6 weeks. Good luck with this. I know that you are concerned. Let me know what you find out!!

Stat meaning that the Dr's office would get the results the same day. my levels were up yes, around 900 (at the last check) I have an u/s tomorrow morning. We'll see then. Thank you for listening.

I am so glad you have your appt tomorrow. Best wishes for a good one!! Keep me posted. Duh dummy me! I know what stat means but I thought it might have meant something else in the case of your u/s...Good luck tomorrow!!

i think you should demand one, with 2 previous miscarriages, i think its crazy that they don't follow up and make sure that it's not the case again.
