Last time I was pregnant last yr I found out at 4 weeks and went to the doc at 5 weeks and basically freaked out till I was 10 weeks and had my mc. The question im debatin now is I know im pregnant should I hold off on tellin my doc or anything else due to being superstisious and just start takin my vitamins or should I go to my doc asap? Btw I already have a doc appt with my ob gyn june 16 so I would b 6 or so weeks, can I push it that long?

I have a history of miscarriage as well. The day I got my BFP, I called and made an appointment with my OB to get labs drawn etc. I got into the doc office on March 11th and I got my BFP on March 8th.

I have had multiple ultrasounds and my doc checks the baby's heart rate at each appointment.

Start the vitamins and call your doc ASAP to start care now.

And my last miscarriage was at 11w5d but the baby had stopped growing weeks before that.. so I went on thinking "everything is fine" when it really wasnt.. it was hard getting to the 11w stage because I was freaking out but I am now 13w3d and everything is GREAT

First off, let me say how disappointed I am that no one else responded. That is horrible!

Second, about the dnc, I passed mine naturally at home. I still feel horrible about it to this day.

Third, I would suggest calling another OBGYN who can see you sooner. I would also suggest, if you are truly worried, to go to the ER. I know how you feel about not seeing a heartbeat and such. It is rough. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Lastly, most doctors go by lmp so whenever that is to now, that's how far along you are.

Can your ob not see you sooner?

He could at least do blood levels to check hcg, progesterone, etc

I'd go in to at least get testing

I went within 3 days of my bfp and had levels drawn. An u/s showed a sac but nothing more. A week later, we saw a hb @ 7wks.

I feel it is better to know sooner.

I agree with what Rose has said, I would get blood drawn at the very least!!  It's scary waiting for that first u/s, I too know this from my losses...Best of luck to you hun!!! I look forward to your updates! =) I also feel like that since I've had losses, I'd look into a new ob and try to be seen sooner. That's just me though, best of luck again hun!! Lots of sticky bean dust to you!!

Go to the doctor ASAP. The sooner you start your prenatal care the better for you and baby. I had a MC last year so I understand why you are scared. I would be too.
