My pregnancy

SunnyTea - posted on 10/02/2015 ( 2 moms have responded )




I had an ultrasound done and clearly saw a baby. I have photos to prove it but the tech said no that's your live . So I'm like how is my liver in the front of my tummy? So they didn't give me a urine test because they said it would come back negative because I might be too far along.. The tech rushed through the ultrasound.. So now I'm lost because I feel lots of movement.. And I have people telling me there's no baby which is making me think I'm crazy.. I haven't had a period in about 6 months.. I'm starting to believe it might be abdominal preg.. Is it possible that the tech missed it by rushing?? I feel a lot of movement and I know its not gas.. Then she insulted me by saying OK now we have to figure out why your not having any periods loll. I'm Like wtf you are supposed to be trained.. So I scheduled a appointment at another place where there will be obgyns to look.. Any one else ever been through hell just to find out you are in fact pregnant?? Comment and let me know thank you!!

"now we have to figure out why your not having any periods"

How is that insulting? Of course she is trained, but there are so many reasons you may not be getting your periods that it requires some investigation. Clearly they have decided to rule out that you are pregnant, so what the doctor said is correct, they have to do further tests. It is highly unlikely that the tech missed a baby, and it IS possible it was your liver - the liver actually IS in front of your stomach. Technicians are trained to read ultrasounds, you aren't (unless, of course, you are an ultrasound technician), so what makes you think you know how to read that ultrasound better than the technician?

I'm not sure who told you a urine test would be negative for Hcg if you are too far along - it would still be positive because you have HcG in your system. Have you ever actually done a pregnancy test? Have you had a blood test?

Have you done any HPT's? Have you seen your doctor, not just an ultrasound tech? Also the tech wouldn't be saying anything about other tests, that's for your doctor to do.
