I found out I was pregnant in March. I had my first appointment with a Nurse Practitioner at 8 week + 2 days. She did a Trans-vaginal ultrasound and found baby to have a healthy heartbeat and measuring right at 8 weeks. I had just experienced a miscarriage the prior Dec, so she told me to put my worries behind me, because miscarriage hardly ever happen twice and that we saw a heartbeat, so chance of miscarriage was low. Well 2 weeks later I felt like my symptoms decreased significantly, so I informed the Nurse Practitioner and she asked me to come in to look at the heartbeat to ease my worries. Well their office called and said I can see a doctor because the nurse had no openings. The doctor couldn't find the baby at all in a trans-vaginal ultrasound I would have been 10 weeks + 3 days, he could only find a Sac and no baby. He told he was very sorry that I had another miscarriage. He scheduled a D&C with me the following week. The whole week I grieved, but felt my body was telling me different. The night before the scheduled D&C I asked the doctor if I can get an ultrasound at the Radiology department, because I felt like I was still having some symptoms and no sign of miscarriage. He told me that they will most likely find what he did. He kept the D&C scheduled and scheduled me into ultrasound an hour before the procedure. The morning I went into ultrasound I would be at 11 weeks + 3 days, the tech used an abdominal sonogram, the baby was right there measuring 2 days ahead of schedule. I was in such disbelief and so absolutely relieved that I had asked for that scan! I saw a new doctor that afternoon who let me listen to the heartbeat and was so sorry I had to go through what I did. I'll be 12 weeks on Sunday. Don't ever give up hope! This site is what made me really believe that my baby still had a possibility of surviving.
