Hello, My name is Erica. I am 19 my fiance and I were not exactly trying to get pregnant, but we were not preventing it, and we havent been for 1 1/2 years. My last period was Feb. 7th. I had my first appointment today for an ultrasound. I thought I should have been to the doctor sooner but I just got insurance, I was a new patient so it took longer. They said as long as I got in by 3 months I would be fine. They did the internal ultrasound and I could tell something wasnt right. The medical assistant was printing out the pictures and the doctor motioned for her to stop. She told me either my dates were not correct or this was a miscarriage I should be 11 weeks but the baby was the size of 6 weeks with no heart beat. She said maybe it was just her machine so I went to another place. They did both external and internal ultrasounds. My doctor got on the phone woth me directly and said that they had confirmed her findings. I am so upset, I had got my hopes up so much reading baby books, looking at clothes and stuff. She told me I have three choices 1. I could wait up to two weeks for the miscarriage to take its course ( which could end up in a d&c if i have excesive bleeding) 2. she could insert medicine into me that would start the cramping (which could end up in d&c also) or I could do the d&c as soon as Tuesday. I felt fine except for normal morning sickness ect. Now tonight I have cramps but I dont know if it's just in my head or not. I think I want to do the D&C rather than start bleeding and be in pain, I just of course am thinking what if she's wrong. I dont know if its too soon. Has anyone else expiernced this?
