So I just had the worst ultrasound experience and now I am freaking out. I am supposed to be 9 weeks 3 days ( but I suspect that could be slightly off but only by a few days a week max)
Went for my dating ultrasound and it was literally in the basement of a building and to say the tech was an ass would be putting it nicely. He took 3 cell phone calls while I was lying there on the table. He wouldnt show me the screen and when I asked if he could find the baby he sorta said no, which didnt panic me too much as I thought maybe I didnt drink enough water or Jr was hiding, But something was definitely off with his demeanor. When he was done, I was like sooo?? did you find it? He was like no, and I'm not supposed to tell you that but you asked ? wtf? okay. So this sent me into a little bit of a panic and I happen to live next door to a walk in clinic so I went in and was like ok, having a panic attack what do I do ?
so the really nice dr called over to the U/S clinic and said that okay the guy did see the sac but no heart beat so now I am going for blood work tomorrow. I am deluded for holding out hope that the guy just read it wrong, or because it was abdominal not transvaginal he just couldnt see the heart beat? Or should I be expecting the worst? Everything I've read online tells me I should expect the worst ?
