Thank you HSDR. I'm 14+2 I've thought about a Doppler but I worry it would give me false "reassurance"

I'm so sorry to hear about your son and wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy. It's awful when professionals don't listen.

Thank you Bittersweet I have wrote some stuff on my blog that may help you. The most helpful will probably be the one I made first to help pregnant Moms. Basically, don't hesitate to speak up for your care.

Congratulations on being 14 weeks!! My fetal Doppler is "Little Martin's".. It works excellent I use it with baby oil! I use it along with the kick counts and I count her kicks/record them as often as possible. Even if I don't lay down and do a count, when I feel her moving, I will text myself with "hard kick lower right" or "feels like she's having a party" because it reassures me she is moving. I also started writing her kicks down during official kick counts (time, kick, type, location) and I will do it for about an hour then I will go and count. She is moving now once again, lol. Im not complaining!!

Don't think about how far along you are, just remember you are strong and you will get through this.

Have you had an ultrasound yet? My new practice I switched to for her sent me for an ultrasound as soon as I found out I was pregnant, another at 14 weeks, another at 20 weeks and then they found Velamentous Cord Insertion and possible Vasa Previa. I was sent back at 24 weeks to check it anything had changed and I was put on full pelvic rest. At 26 weeks I went to see a peri and he told me he wanted me in for a scan at 28 weeks and if I still had Vasa Previa he wanted me in at 28-30 weeks. I'm almost at 30 weeks now but then another in his practice verified I have Vasa Previa and told me I could go in at anytime but he left it up to me (which I don't appreciate). I have NST's scheduled every week until I am admitted. The plan was 32 weeks and delivery at 35-36, but I am going to tell them to hospitalize me at 31 weeks on the 18th with admit on the 21st... I am also going to tell them I want a planned c section at 34 weeks because I will not wait for something to go wrong and standard is 34-36 weeks with Vasa Previa.

I wish you the best of luck and I look forward to hearing from you!!

Yeah I've had 3 ultrasounds which has been reassuring in a way.

I wish you all the best and hope medics listen to your wishes xx
