Okay, From what I can tell Its fairly common for doctors to refuse to do ultrasounds or listen for a heartbeat until a certian date and what have you.. I understand that, my problem is this is my first pregnancy my last few periods have been slightly irregular when my last period came 10 days early in September and was accompanied by sharp pains in my lower abdomen I went to the ER. They checked me out and said nothing was wrong so I went home. the pain stopped shortly after, the next month I never got a period but since my menstrual cycles were a little off I decided to wait a few weeks before taking a pregnancy test. I took a test and it came back positive, I went to the ob/gyn and had blood work done and they called me later that day to tell me I was pregnant. so here I am at a speculated 8 weeks and 4 days based solely on a messed up menstral cycle and I still don't believe it to be anything more than a tumor.. lol Im very skeptical and I really dont want to get my hopes but before I know something conclusive. All I know at this point is that I miss my period in october and my HCG levels are high. that could be a number of things... cyst, tumor or who knows what and my doctors wont do an ultrasound until 16-20 weeks thats over 2 months from now so I have to sit here for 2 months and think I have a healthy growing baby in me when it could turn out to be nothing all because they wont do anything to check and make sure its okay. Im sure you are thinking, "well why don't you switch doctors or go somewhere else to get an ultrasound?" simpple answer... military. my husband is in the military and the only health insurance we have is through the military and there is only one military hospital in this silly town. So, they pretty much have total control over us. Anyone else having problems with military hospitals or doctors or civilian hospital or doctors.. is anyone else freaking out like me just trying to make sure baby is okay. Its driving me crazy not knowing whats going on... please leave some reassuring messages. -Heather<3

hi heather...i'm in the same freaking out boat but for different reason. i'm 7w4d and already had 2 ultrasounds done, first to see how far along and 2nd to see that there was a baby. now my problem is that in my 2nd u/s the baby's heartbeat was slow so i have another one today to see if it has picked up. if i was in your shoes i would be somewhat thankful that they wouldn't do an u/s. as horrible as it sounds, i would've rather not had it and believed my baby was okay then sitting here stressing for 3 days waiting to confirm things. stay positive and ask for prayers from everyone around you, that's all you can do!!!! i won't tell you not to stress since i can't even take my own advice. GOOD LUCK!!!!

thanks Joleenb, Im sorry you are having to wait and are stressing... I know what you mean but I have never been a big fan of the saying "ignorance is bliss" believing the baby is fine and going back home for thanksgiving and Christmas and having everyone be happy and excited then a week later run the risk of finding out something is wrong and have to tell everyone would kill me I would rather know now that there may be something wrong and prepare for it rather than have the shock hit me after the happiest time of my life with my family and friends, if that makes any sense lol. at least you know there is a baby, for all I know I could have a tumor. anyway I keep praying and hoping and trying to stay positive. good luck to you. I hope everything works out! -Heather<3
