I feel for you. I remember that early pregnancy anxiety all too well, and the kind of miserable thinking that tells you the pregnancy is doomed because you dared to make an appointment for a month from now. Chin up, and toss the evil pee sticks!!!

Plain Jane Mom

You're just being responsible. They have to do the CVS in a narrow timeframe and it was a really good idea for you to get that booked. Are you going to that famous lady up in the city? Have you had a CVS before? I only ask because I can tell you what it was like for me if you like.

If I read this right and you don't have another US until January, hell yeah call your RE and ask for another scan. What can they say? "Nope, we don't want your money."

They of all people should understand the need for a reassurance scan. Email me if they say no and I'll go have a little "chat" with them.


Throw away the devil sticks, you probably had something to drink in the previous 2 hours and diluted the result. Simple explanation. You are probably fine, but if you need the reassurance, I'm with Jane, get another and if they say no, tell us, we'll both have a "chat" with them. Hehe, the new posse..
