I am about 4 weeks along. I m/c last year. The doc won't see me until I do orientation on Oct 6 which will put me at about 6weeks. My question is how and when do they check your hcg levels? I really wish they would do an ultrasound to put my mind at ease. But I probably won't get in to see the doctor til about 10 weeks.

They usually won't see you before 8 weeks unless you are having issues which is when they send you for bloodwork. I went in early due to cramping and had an ultrasound and bloodwork around 6 weeks. Although I had a feeling the cramping was not a problem (it was not too severe) I really wanted to be sure the pg was viable so I acted like I was a little more worried than I actually was. You may try calling your doctor and seeing if that works. I know I'm terrible, but I worry alot. Sorry to hear of your m/c and congrats on your pregnancy!

Thanks, yeah other women have told me that too. But hey it obviously works and if thats the only way they will see you. Could they find s heartbeat at 6weeks? I just won't be able to relax until I hear the baby's heartbeat and amke sure everything is ok. I am just nervous after having a m/c already.

I completely understand how nervous you are. I think it was a little over 6 weeks when they saw the heartbeat for me. I would give it a try. Good luck!


jac1019 - October 9

I am so nervous too! I have complted 8wks, and am now in my 9th week, due May 20th. I had my orientation appt. on Sept. 23rd where they took blood, gave a pap., etc., but don't go back until October 28th to hear the heartbeat. I feel like everyone I know has had a miscarriage or knows someone who has, not to mention that my best friend had one a week before I found out I am pregnant. Lastly, besides being exhausted, having sore breas b___sts (normally at night), and only pa__sing waves of nausea at times, my mind starts bugging and worrying, as though I should feel more symptoms. lastly, the fact that my mother-in-law has told the whole world makes me feel jynxed... ugh!

i saw a hb with my first pregnancy at 8 wks. don't worry is the best advice i have, this is our second and i am not freaking out like i did last time. i heard too that even if you have no or little symptoms it is not a bad sign and that the most ideal and healthy pregnancy comes with little symptoms jac1019.

You can always go to the hospital if you having problems and they check the HCG levels..
