Ultrasound

We have had an ultrasound done two weeks ago and at that time the Dr. said she saw something odd with it.  It could be nothing or it could be any number of things so now this Wed the 26th we are scheduled for a more in dept ultrasound at a different hospital with specialists and I am scared to death as to what there might be wrong.  we have been TTC for so many years now and now am 10 weeks pregnant only to be scared out of my mind.  The dr. we saw last wasn't very pleasant and didn't seem to have an emotional bone in her body.  She was kind of cold in fact. 

Has anyone else had an issue like this and how did it turn out?

Thanks. eye rolling

Hang in there it might be nothing and if it is something, it might not be serious. Having you wait 2 weeks is a good sign that it cannot be that bad hopfully : )

I was 17 and went in for my first u/s 18 weeks pregnant. The tech is looking and seeing stuff and then she says that she wants me to come back tomorrow so the dr can see what she sees b/c if it isn't tomorrow then the dr wont be in until next week... I am freaking out! I go back the next day (my b/f /  the babys dad couldn't be there) and I go in and the dr is there and he is telling me all of these things he speciallizes in (like operating on unborn babies). I start to get worried and teary eyed, he sees this. Then he asks if I knew why I was there and I told him no. Then he looks at baby and starts to explain tha tin one of my baby's kidneys there are cysts and this kidney probably wont work. They need to monitor me to make sure the other kidney is working (and cyst free) and that there is enough fluid around baby. We found out that we were having a girl and she was diagnosed with a multicystic dysplastic kidney and I became a high risk pregnancy. 

My daughter is now about to turn 7 (Friday) and she is fine. We have never had any problems with her kidney. She has only one kidney now and it is larger than normal b/c it is doing the work of two kidneys (the multicystic dysplastic kidney kind of shriveled up and went away before she was even born). She cannot play contact sport and have to much caffeine, other than that there aren't any restrictions or complications at all. 

Over all her having his problem never was a problem and still isn't and we pray it will never be a problem : ) Try to relax and not worry so much. Worrying isn't going to do anything good and it is bad for the baby so relax and take up a new hobby for the next two weeks : ) Goodluck

I'm sorry. It could be nothing. Dr are trained not to get emotionally involved, if you get involved in everyone they would be emotional wrecks

I had to go to specialists for ultrasounds but it was just a precaution. Kind of freaked me out but everything was fine. Did your doctor say what it could be?

Hope it ends up being nothing. I'm sure if it was too serious they would be seeing you sooner. Also, if you normal OB is that cold, I'd be looking for a new one. Yes doctors are trained to not get emotionally involved but they also need bedside manners. My doctor is very pleasant and goes out of his way to make me feel relaxed and comfortable. Infact, at my 13week appt him and his nurse could not find my baby's heartbeat using two different dopplers. He saw that I was scared and after I got dressed he came back and said "Just sit tight, I'm gonna sneak yall (me and DH) back for an ultrasound before I send you home. Dont worry, we'll find that little ticker." Sure enough he did, baby was perfectly fine and that ultrasound magically never made an appearance on my insurance billing lol.

I totally agree. And I see in here ALL the time that docs think they see "something" and have the mama cone back and it's nothing. They are just overly cautious. I would definitely look for a more friendly ob. You want to be comfortable with the person.

 It is still extremely early!  They are so tiny at that point it can be hard to make everything out clearly.  My first I had to redo the 20 week ultrasound because they couldn't get a good pic of her heart.  Ended up being fine, then one kidney was smaller than the other--which corrected itself.  My second daughter had spots in her stomach so I had to see a perinatologist.  He said with equipment being better they can see more than they use to so it seems out of place but is actually normal.  It was the lining of her stomach forming.

Dont get yourself worked up (I know, easier said than done), it is likely nothing.

This is what my youngest daugther has. I remember how terrible it was and how scared I was when I found out about it while I was pregnant. She is 17 months old now. Her kidney didn't shrivel up though. She started having problems with UTI's at 5 months old. She had her kidney removed in September and is doing well now :)

Ive felt like this before, i know hiw scare you probably are. I had bleeding early on and I also have a blood clotting disorder so I went to a high risk dr for that. Well that guy scared the crap out of me. He also doesn't seem to have any emotion. My baby's measuring behind in the 3rd percentile and he dropped words like -I'm not gonna pussy-foot around im concerned. Mentioned possible chromosomal defects.. and he didn't reassure me at all so I left hysterical thinking something was wrong. Well my regular dr calmed me and actually explained it doesn't necessarily mean something is wrong. She has a two vessel cord so that could be why she's small. Don't freak out just yet, some doctors don't realize how much we read into their words I guess. Did he say any specifics as to what is "odd"?
