  • What does the doctor say.... that's who she needs to talk to

  • The Dr. Said for her to do another u/s in five days , and that her pregnancy might not be going well and then let the room . Not giving us time to ask questions

  • I agree, get a 2nd opinion

  • Ugh. Sorry she is going through that. Maybe a dr. change is in order. There are docs that are helpful and will treat her more thoughtfully.

  • Similar yes. Went for an ultrasound and it said I was around 4-5 weeks, I should have been 8-9 weeks. They saw no baby, just an empty sac. It was still the same at the 2nd ultrasound a week later and still the same at the 3rd ultrasound 2 weeks after the 2nd one. I had no bleeding, no cramps and my hcg levels were still rising. They didnt start dropping until about 2 months later and I didnt miscarry for another 2 months after that. I would suggest a second opinion like some of the other ladies said. She needs a doctor that will take care of her, answer her questions and explain to her what is going on. This is a hard thing to go through and the last thing she needs is a doctor who is in a hurry to get rid of her. I wish her the best of luck and hope that it all works out.

  • You def need a second opinion! A really close friend of mine had the same thing happen to her twice and she had an eptopic (spell?) pregnancy the first time and miscarried the second.
