If when the doctor did an ultrasound she said that you are not as far along as you thought or this is not a normal pregnancy do you need to be worried?

a doctor tried to tell me the same thing.....he said my babys not alive cause they couldn't see a active heart beat.I went home all upset waiting for my body to DO what THE doctors call it "abort the baby NATURALLY".THIS IS WHEN THEY SEE A SAC BUT NO HEART BEAT.COUPLE DAYS LATER I WAS BLEEDING AND CRAMPING SO I WENT IN THINKING I WAS MISCARRYING.WE DID A ULTRA SOUND AND THERE MY BABY WAS.ALIVE AS CAN BE HEART BEATING AWAY.DOCTORS CAN BE OFF BY TWO WEEKS SOME TIME AND DOCTORS TO ME ARNT ALWAYS THE SMARTEST PEOPLE.IM LEARNING THAT DOCTORS GUESS MORE THEN WHAT THEY KNOW.GO BY YOUR INSTINCT AND PRAY AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.IM SURE EVREY THING IS FINE.SOME BABYS GROW FASTER THEN OTHER AND DEVLOPE TO.SO JUST LIKE ME YOUR BABY IS PROBALLY DEVELOPING A LITTLE SLOWER AND LOOK AT IS AS GOD TAKING HIS TIME WITH YOUR BABY.YOU SHOULD FEEL SPEACIAL.HAVE YOUR DR CHECK YOUR HCG COUNT AND THEN AGAIN THREE DAYS LATER TO SEE IF YOUR LEVEL DOUBL IF THEY DO YOU HAVE NO WORRIES IF THEY DONT THEN REDUE THE STEPS AGAIN.IF THEY GO UP ALITTLE BUT DOSENT DOUBLE THEN WORRY.AS LONG AS YOUR #S DOUBLE YOUR PREGNANCY IS GOING GOOD SO FAR.THAT DOESNT MEAN YOU CANT MISCARRY BUT IT MEANS IF YOUR WORRY JUST BED REST ON YOUR OWN AND TAKE IT EASY UNTILL 20 WEEKS.THAT IS IF YOU WANT THIS BABY.DONT WAIT FOR A DR TO BED REST YOU DO IT CAUSE ITS BETTER SAFER THEN SORRY......GOOD LUCK

Always ask doctors exactly what do they mean, so you won't go home worrying about it. But I also had the doctor tell me once that I wasn't as far as I thought, & it was nothing I just got the date of my last period messed up.

my doctor now uses an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy at the first visit instead of just a pregnancy test or bloodwork.

When you go to the doctor and have an ultrasound ask the doctor if you want to know.

The only way to be certain is by having a blood test hun. It is possible for the embryo to not show up in a ultrasound until you are 6-7 weeks into your pregnancy but because of your pregnancy symptoms vanishing, I would be concerned and suspect a miscarriage. See your doctor for a blood test.

Only a doctor can diagnose this with an ultrasound. The body will think you are pregnant but the ultrasound will show up an empty sac or nothing.
