After the first ultrasound...

I am a natural worrywart and just heard a horrible story from a friend about a molar pregnancy, she had all the "normal" pregnancy symptoms such as nasuea, sore boobs, etc. The doctors even detected a normal heartbeat at early visits. However, at 15 weeks they found out it was a molar pregnancy. This really scared me! I had an ultrasound at 7wks2ds and was told everything looked perfect. After the first ultrasound, you can rule out atopic and molar pregnancies right?

I am not an expert, but I belive if you had an ultrasound they can see where the baby is... so I would say yes...

Re: After the first ultrasound...

I'm pretty sure a molar pregnancy never has a heartbeat. It's my understanding that in a molar pregnancy, the exchange of chromosomal information "breaks down" from the moment of conception and there is never a true fetus. However, the egg was fertilized so it continues to grow & produce the pregnancy hormone that causes pregnancy symptoms. Molar pregnancies normal abort themselves by week 10.
