This morning I had my first ultrasound at 11 weeks 4 days pregnant.
When we arrived at the clinic, the tech took me into a room and asked my husband to wait in the waiting area while she did the first part of the ultrasound. She said she’d come get him once the first part was over.
She took me into the room and started the ultrasound. I think she was doing measurements but I couldn’t see the screen as it was pointed away from me. After a few minutes she stopped what she was doing and told me she’d be right back and left the room. When she came back she told me she wouldn’t be bringing my husband in the room and that we were done. The only reason she would give me is, “I’m just not seeing what I want to see and the radiologist isn’t here right now”.
Since she wasn’t allowed to give me any results and the radiologist wasn’t in, she called my family doctor whose office was just upstairs to see if he could come down but he was busy and said he’d call me at home later. That was 10:30 this morning…my doctor’s office finally called me at 4:30. The receptionist said the doctor wants me to come in for an appointment tomorrow morning. When I got off the phone I was sobbing my eyes out. I was really hoping they’d give me some kind of answers right away since I’m making myself sick with worry. DH called the doctor’s office back to see if there was anything they could tell us over the phone and they said no, they want to see us in person tomorrow.
Tonight DH is working a 14 hour shift so I’m home alone and can’t stop crying. Our first pregnancy ended in MC at 7 weeks so we were being cautious this time around and waiting until after our ultrasound to start sharing the news…we haven’t even told our parents. Since DH and I are the only ones who know about the pregnancy, there’s no one else to talk to about what we’re going through.
I’m really trying hard to stay calm and not lose hope but it’s really difficult… 🙁

I am so sorry you are having to deal with this. While I understand the concept behind not showing the screen right away/having people’s partners wait to come in, I do not agree with it at all. You are in my thoughts and prayers tonight. I am so sorry they are making you wait like this. ((Hugs))

Oh my god, your experience sounds AWFUL. Your husband should have gotten to be in the room with you! I don’t understand that at all! And they NEVER should have waited until the next day to tell you what they are going to tell you–ever!
I would ask my husband to take sick time and come home.
I am so sorry you are experiencing this. It’s wrong on so many levels. Hang in there. =(

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. The not knowing is absolute torture. I understand because I’m a worrier and I’d probably assume the worst if it were me, but I’m hoping that isn’t the case for you. Stay strong.

Oh my God! I’m so sorry that you have to go through this. The doctor should have made time to see you today or spoke to you on the phone, he/she has to know how upsetting an appointment like that must have been for you. My prayers are with you that everything is ok.

I am so sorry you are going through this. If I were you, I’d be on the phone with my best friend or my mom. I couldn’t bear this alone. They’ll understand that you didn’t tell them about the pregnancy sooner.
I’ll be thinking of you and hoping that everything ends up well.

So sorry 🙁 It’s got to be so stressful. I really hope things turn out better than you think. My doctor told me today, too, that at my first sonogram (this wednesday), if it was not what they expected they wouldn’t tell me and would give the results to the doctor for them to explain. I’m so sorry you are going through this.
