Leann - April 22

My doc took a urine test and said that I wasn't preg but she would still order a us for me if I wanted one. I told her I did because I was having some pain under my rib cage and my belly. I called for my us and they gave me directions as when to drink the water before the test. Then the nurse called me back and changed the directions, she said she thought I was getting an "ob ultrasound" done. Well I didn't know the difference, so I got the us done and they didn't mention seeing a baby. Well, I'm still having symptoms and feel movement. I got the bill back, since I am self pay, for an huge amount of $1,300 for a (us, vag us and abd us) and the bill said (us-pelvis non ob), (us-transva___al non-ob) and (us abdomen limited). I looked up "ob us" on the internet and that is the us done during pregnancy, which required you to drink water at a different time opposed to the us they did do. Would they have seen the preg at 19 weeks with a us that was not a specific "ob us". Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A pregnant uterus and fetus can be spotted by a qualified sonographer from 8 weeks onwards, If you have any doubts regarding your results, i suggest you contact your Dr to clarify matters.
