Last pregnancy, I was convinced something was wrong, and I was right. It'd not that getting an ultrasound can stop the inevitable, especially during the first and secone trimesters, but if I had been able to get an ultrasound, I'd have at least been prepared with her slowed heart rate, etc. Instead of brutally shocked when told she was gone. Anyway....I know there's one of those places you can pay for a private scan near me, but they're designed as novelties and gender checks, which I can't use and don't need. It's also $69 for a quick session. While that is doable, it's also half the cost of a side sleeper or changing table...if you catch my drift. Of course my OB knows I miscarried my last and am terrified of going through it again. She was the one who performed my d&c But will I get shunned away if I call up and am honest and say basically, "I'm just really nervous; I'm at the time where I lost my last pregnancy. I know I have an appointment in two weeks, but right now, two weeks seems an eternity in knowing whether I have a live baby in there or not." I know doctors are busy, and I know I'm not the only pregnant woman out there. But it's for my own peace of mind. I'm so scared right now of finding blood. Or worse, a mmc.
