Question: Pregnant please help
|clements713 - Wed Sep 14, 2005 11:08 pm||
I can’t get any answers from my doctor. Its like there is something she will not tell me. I had an ultra sound to find out how far along I am. Found out I was having twins but one died. Then she said I was only 9 weeks pregnant. But that would mean when I took the pregnancy test I was only 10 days pregnant and I hear that it doesn’t show up that fast then she said I have blood on my cervix is that normal or am I going to loose the other baby as well. I just want some answer I asked my doctor and she just moved on to the next thing never answering me please help me understand if its bad to have blood on my cervix and if there is a bigger chance I will miscarry?

Levels of the hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), produced during pregnancy may be detected by a urine test as early as 12-14 days after conception. Keep in mind that ultrasounds may not always be exactly specific to the very day. My most sincere sympathy for your loss of the other twin :( As for "blood on your cervix" I am unclear as to the specifics of what she meant by this particular statement. My suggestion to you, call your physician's office and speak with the nurse. Express your concerns about what you have been told and ask for an explanation. If you do not understand or feel your questions are being evaded, ask until you are satisfied. My best wishes to you and I hope you will consider keeping us posted on your progress.
