Opinion in Scheduling(WWYD?)

Hello Ladies!  

So, I've had an issue getting into a practice.  I'm *supposed* to receive a call Monday to schedule. Staff member told me Friday I could be seen this Thursday or the following week if I wanted.  I should be 5w6days on Thur.  Do you think this is too soon? They'll do an internal u/s.  Or should I wait another week and not have to worry about only seeing a gest.sac/yolk...etc?  

They want to check for multiples and get me a rhogam shot ASAP.  My prev. pregnancy started as twins but disappered at about 10 weeks.  My sister had fraternal twins, my brother and sister are frat. twins any my Mom's brothers are frat. twins.  We're quite the hyper olvulators :smileywink:  

I REALLY want an u/s but I really DON"T want to get anxious/stressed at what I possibly won't see (heartbeat).    

Would you take the early scan or push it 5-7 days?

 

~~Katie

I got it last time cause there were two, with bleeding.  It was a mini dose or something like that.  One ended up spontaneously aborting though about two-three weeks later.

This Dr. said she will give the Rhogam early too, given my history and my current spotting.

My sister had a stillborn at around 20 weeks. Her next two pregnancies, she got the shot in the first trimester too.

No, I had to get it early (week7) last pregnancy. I'm spotting again, so Dr. called last night and said I'll get it on Tuesday, at my first appt.

Rhogam isn't given till 28 weeks so I wouldn't let that be a deciding factor.

Yeah, that's why I'm torn. I think I'm going to delay it a week. My husband should find out if he's traveling the following week, on Monday. If he is, I'll schedule it early. He would be heartbroken to miss an u/s.

I chose to wait until six weeks, because I knew that not seeing a heart beat between five and six weeks would be very nerve wracking, even if it could very well be normal at that point, and then I would just end up needing another ultrasound a week later (while waiting in fear all week).

I'd go in right away.  You need the Rhogam & you can get a good look at LO!
