Is The Baby Alive

Very nervous - October 13

How do you know if the baby is alive? I read a post where someone lost their baby and didn't know for a week until they had a spontaneous miscarriage. I'm terrified of this happening. When it's so small, how do you know it's ok???? I have no ultra sound scheduled until 20 weeks. I'm 12 weeks now and I'm nervous.

If you are at 12 weeks a dr should be able to hear a heartbeat. Have you seen an ob yet? If not, you should set up an appt very soon. Early OB care is best to avoid a lot of early complications. In the area I live, an Ob will start seeing you at 7 weeks and many times will do the first u/s then as well.

20 weeks sounds pretty late for your first scan. i'm in england, we do them at week 12 and week 20. at week 12, they screen for down's syndrome - an important test. insist on a scan now. i too worry that nothing is going on in there because i'm not having any major symptoms.

I had my first OB appointment and he said the heartbeat was fine. But what if something happens, like it stops??? The ultrasound is scheduled at 18-20 weeks in Canada.

Yes, things can go wrong at any point in your pregnancy. However, once you hear the heartbeat your odds do go down. The odds keep going down the further your pg progresses. Please try to relax. There would be nothing that anyone could do to prevent something happening naturally. No sense worrying. Just enjoy your miracle and leave it in God's hands. I do wish you well. "God bless you and those you love!"
