Question Doctor ordered ultrasound ?

Hey guys!

Looking for some input.. I'm 11 weeks pregnant and went for my initial bloodwork 2 or 3 weeks ago. I'm not supposed to see my doctor for another 2 weeks. I got a number of calls from 2 hosptials looking to book me for an ultrasound. I'm wondering why this would be?

I just had a baby last June, so this pregnancy crept on us quite quickly. I didn't receive my first period until September and got pregnant in October. I had taken a pregnancy test in September (the day before I got my period), so I know Im not further along. I can feel my uterus growing and getting firmer, so I can't see that being a problem.. I don't have a history of miscarriages or complications.

Here in Canada ultrasounds are slim, you get one at 19-20weeks and thats usually it.

What do you think?...

Re: Doctor ordered ultrasound ?

:::UPDATE::: .... I spoke with the diagnostic imaging nurse, she said the request states the dates were to be checked? ... This is very odd since the dates were not in question at all ?

My guess would be that your hcg number does not correspond with how far along you are? Maybe it is either higher or lower than what it should be for 11 weeks. That is all I can think of if they are saying it is dates related.

I think suewaz is right. Either your hcg numbers are too high or too low. Here's wishing you the best!

Re: Doctor ordered ultrasound ?

Thanks guys, thats what I figured. Its just slightly concerning because I know the dates are right. I had a full normal period and had even taken a hpt the day before it started. There was a question of dates with my oldest child, but my doctor didn't see an issue and waited to get the measurments from my 20 week ultrasound. So I'm thinking there must have been quite the discrepancy with my numbers and dates.

Eeep.

I'm so scared there is something wrong... Or there is more then one in there! haha. My ultrasound is on Weds, I'll be sure to update!

Did you opt for IPS screening? I'm also in Canada. They usually do a nuchal fold test and blood work for IPS.

IPS screening is where they do blood work and do an ultrasound of the back of the baby's neck. It is a screening test for a variety of conditions like down syndrome trisomy etc. I am really surprised your OB never mentioned this to you????
