Sarah, thank you so so much for posting this information. My heart goes out to you for the loss of your son, especially knowing it was entirely preventable. It's amazing that you are able to take such a tragedy and use the opportunity to educate those around you about this truly terrible condition.
I seem to remember the tech turning on the color blood flow monitor during my 20-week scan with Ethan, so maybe that's why?
I know that they used the color monitor to check for any kind of heartbeat during my m/c in December (just to be absolutely sure that there wasn't one).
Your so lovely Sarah

Sarah, your such a amazing person to take this and help others. Thank you so much.
Am I at risk? I have had 1 c/s and 1 d and c. At my 20 week scan with Trevor the u/s tech turned on color and looked things for a very long time. Would this be one of the things she was looking for?
Since when are you prego again!!! I quit stalking and look what happens...

However, if you were carrying an IVF pregnancy or twins then you would probably need a transvaginal colour doppler ultrasound scan anyway, because those things in themselves present the risk - iykwim?
