Well I'm 8w 3d now. I had a terrible m/c in April at 14w with mini labor and hospital and all that. I didn't have my first u/s until 13w last time ( because I was measuring small) and they couldn't find the baby, just the gestational sac. It's so strange, my body must have been really fooled. What I'm worried about right now is how to get some "proof" from my doctor that there is a baby there this time. My first appt is on Friday and I will be 8w 5d. I've been told that I might not be able to get an u/s unless there's some problem like bleeding. I would appreciate anyone's ideas a lot!

Make your history known first of all. Ask for an u/s and honestly if you're told no I'd look for a new ob! I m/c in Jan the same way as you told my Dr about it(I moved so had to have new dr)and had a u/s at first visit at 5 wks w/no problems. remember the dr is for you and if they aren't doing what you want and need find someone who will!!!!
