Re: ultrasound and doctor says baby is dead at 16 weeks
Hi. I was 16 weeks pregnant and I was spotting. I went to emergency and waited 9 hours for a portable ultrasound to be done. They told me to go home and that everything was fine but to return the next day for a real ultrasound. I was happy to hear everything was Ok but returned the next day. The tech. examined me and called the doctor. They told me there was no heart beat. I was shocked. Less than 24 hours agao, they told me everything was fine. Needless to say I had a D&C done and got a severe infection. I went back for an ultrsound and they found another dead fetus. I had to have another D&C done. This happened to me back in November and I still get upset thinking about the whole thing. I'm very happy for you and want to let you know to trust your instincts and be your own doctor. Hope the baby is OK.
