  • I would wait and ask for another ultrasound by a different tech in a week or so, unless the doctor gives you a damn good reason to abort.

  • I agree. Wait and ask for a second opinion when you should be a little further along.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fetal_pole
    If they didn't see a fetal pole that means that they didn't see a heartbeat.
    Is this the first ultrasound? If so I would suggest a repeat ultrasound. Then if there is still not a heartbeat there is something wrong. It sounds like they are suggesting a D and C for a non viable fetus. Meaning that the baby has not developed properly or has passed away. I am so sorry, but yes you should get a real second opinion from a real doctor.
    I did have a D and C for a different reason.

  • I would get a second opinion. My moms friend was told the same thing when she was pregnant. But she was bleeding. That was why she had the ultrasound to begin with. When they couldn't find the heart beat she got a second opinion and they found it. She eventually quit bleeding and now her daughter is 18 years old and perfectly healthy. Good luck. :)

  • 2nd opionion hun...a lot of ultrasound technitions make mistakes...
    go to a different hospital and make an appointment to see someone else..

    also...if they want to abort your baby,,..that means they want to KILL your baby..therefore your baby must be alive other wise they would have said "your baby is dead we must remove the fetus"

    their pretty screwed up in the head -_-
