I strongly beleive that if you don't trust the word of your dr. you need to get a second opinion. Especially if you are worried about your child. At 1.5 months your child is formed, and you can tell but it is much easier to tell as the baby gets older. You could also ask for another ultrasound at 10 or 11 weeks. you will still have the option of abortion depending on where you live.
Just remember you are entitled to a second opinion if you arent' sure of the first one.
I got pregnant one month ago, and since this is my 3rd baby, and it came by mistake and I had another baby 1 year before, I wanted to abort it. So I took cytotec(R) 3 times in order to abort it but I did not succeed. I just got stomach pain and some excretions. I just went to my doctor which said that the prganancy is continuiung and ok. When my husband knew about this, he convinced me to keep the baby.
: Now I want to keep the baby but I am scared to death that when I give birth the baby will be retarded or malformed because of the cytotec (misoprostol) I took. It has sideeffects on pregnancy. I asked my doctor and he said there are no reasons to be afraid, and that he saw the baby through Ultra sound and he is OK (1.5 months old) but I am sure that the baby has not formed yet and he cannot be sure of this>>>>
: So what do you think??? Will the baby be healthy or have the cytotec affected him?????
: What shall I do???
