First, if your doctor is discouraging a second opinion, that is the first sign, that I would get a second opinion. This was the case with my uncle's heart. Long story, but I pushed him for the second opinion, and it saved his life.
I hope that all goes well for you, but I will tell you that following my miscarriage, I was a full month after being told that I had miscarried that I started having any symptoms. Yes, I was still under physician care, and I felt well cared for. No concerns for infections, etc. I was unable to progress any further with the actual passing of everything, and needed a D&C.
I am so sorry for both you and your situations, britney and alicia
When this happened to me, and it was the same 9 weeks (I thought) and measuring 7, OB scheduled me for an u/s one week later. After this visit, I was allowed to try letting everything pass naturally. Fortunately for me, I go to an office that has 4 very compassionate doctors on staff.View Thread
First, I am so sorry for all that you have been through.
Second, I will tell you, that I still had all of my pregnancy symptoms with my miscarriage, as well.
As far as the D&C, I suppose, if it were me, I would wait for this last u/s before making any decisions. The OB I was seeing, at the time of my miscarriage, allowed me to hold out for quite a while, before we scheduled a D&C. In fact, she told me that she has not seen a more "patient" patient, with regards to trying to let everything pass naturally.View Thread
When I had my first OB appointment, with my first pregnancy, the Ultrasound tech assumed that my dates were just off. She said not to worry, that this happens a lot, and usually the doctor just has you come back the following week for another one.
However, I was miscarrying, and unfortunately, I had absolutely NO symptoms, until the morning of my follow-up appointment. That was when I started bleeding heavily. Other than that, I had nausea, so no clue that I wasn't going to keep my baby.View Thread
