Husband cant come to second Ultrasound with me today


I had my anatomy scan 2 weeks ago but was told couldnt take all pix cuz baby was breech so I have to go back today. My husband is sick and cant come with me. Im really really upset. been crying the past hour or so. Of course its over dramatic because im overly emotional right now, but im really dont want to go alone. Im dreading this appointment afraid something is wrong and I cant handle it alone.

I understand being upset. My husband wasn't with me the first time (and second time as of today) I heard the baby's heartbeat and it was upsetting. Can a family member or friend go with you?

My husband has had to miss our last two U/S as well. We would both prefer he be there, but I was okay without him. The doctor we go to is very supportive and the babies have been doing great.

I understand. My husband missed an appointment for the first time earlier this week and now we have at least 3 more we know he will miss. I have appointments like 2+ times a week so I understand he can't make them all but it still makes me upset. But I only get upset when he misses the ultrasound ones really because like you that's when I really worry that something can come up. My MFM office called me the other day I changed my appointment time next week without giving me an option and it was a time my husband can't make and I was crying when I got off the phone. I felt so silly for crying but our little boy has slow blood flow from his placenta so any appointment they can tell me I need to go on hospital monitored bed rest, or need to deliver and I don't want to go through that alone.

My husband missed our first two scans as well. He travels with work so is away a lot. I guess I'm just used to it now though. I go on my own rather than with another family member, just prefer it that way. Good luck, hope it all goes well

Aww, I feel for you. My partner couldn't come to my first ultrasounds with either of our babies. But, once Baby popped up on that screen, I forgot all about my partner, and all of my focus was on that kiddo. It won't be so bad... There's also such a slim chance of anything being wrong that I'd just take it as an opportunity to see your little cutie again.

My hubby couldn't make it to my 3rd scan... And I thought it would be fine but I was unbelievably nervous not having him there!! I felt nauseous and dizzy durin the scan. But I called him right after and texted him her photos and I made it through ok. It's nicer when someone can be with you. I hope it went ok for you.

My hubby missed every us I had so far and he just left today for 3 months so he will miss the 20 week scan as well.After that I won't get anymore scans how I heard.
So I am very very sad that my husband left and he will miss my entire second trimester and I am all alone in a strange country (I am from Europe).so ladies who have their husbands every day,consider yourself lucky.

I have this same "problem" with a husband who travels for work. I'm used to it though and I'm pretty independent so it doesn't bother me to go alone.

Although, I am sorry that you are so upset OP. Good luck at your appointment!
