    Default 1st appt- bloodwork and an ultrasound

    I just went in for bloodwork this morning. My doctor delivered my first baby and then he only was with me for the first half of my last pregnancy b/c he got pushed out of the clinic he was at b/c he likes to spend a lot of time with his appointments and tries to make sure he delivers everyone he treats (he's a great doctor, but was probably not making the clinic enough money). Anyway, he just opened his own clinic this fall so I went to him. It was awesome! He came and saw me during the bloodwork and then said he would have them just do an ultrasound if I wanted to see if we could see anything. We didn't see anything, which kind of freaks me out, but I know I could just be 4 weeks so we might not see anything. I'm hoping I'm just really early so that's why they didn't see anything, but in the back of my mind I still worry about it, especially since I've miscarried before. I'm going to go back next week for more bloodwork, so I'm praying for good numbers!

    At 4 weeks you normally can't see anything but by 6 weeks you will see a fetal pole

    I agree with PP that at 4 weeks you wouldn't see anything. If you're lucky at 5 weeks you'll see something.

    With my 3rd baby I had had a m/c a few months before and I was so scared of having another. It didn't help that I spotted in the beginning and had bad cramping.

    But I'm crossing my fingers for you that your numbers are high next week

    Thanks everyone. The doctor called me back and my HCG was 1480 and he said you probably wouldn't see anything in the ultrasound until it was at least 2000. I think that sometimes people don't understand how irregular I am! Those numbers match up with me thinking I'm about 4.5 weeks pregnant, but my LMP was Jan 22nd, so I think the doctor thought I could be further along.

    Rachel- I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you too!
