DH and I have found out we are pregnant which we are overjoyed about! The thing is, we are going to the US on the 5th of October until the 21st October. If I were to have a scan two days before we go, that would put me at approximately 6 weeks and to be honest, I don't want to freak out if they can't find a heartbeat yet. I don't want to spend the trip worrying about anything. I want to be much more relaxed this time around after a missed miscarriage in February this year, and so my question is ... what would you do in this scenario?
The only reason to have a scan in my opinion is in case of an ectopic but I figure that bloods drawn every 48 hours should be enough to see if the levels are raising as they should as I have heard that ectopic pregnancies have slow rising HCG levels?
I would love to hear from ladies who are willing to share about their ectopic pregnanacy. How long were you in pain before you sought medical attention? We have travel insurance so if God forbit something happened we are covered but my concern is being on a plane for 20 + hours and if something were to happen on there ...
Just trying to cover all my bases. I really want to leave the scan until we get back when I will be 9 weeks .. I think It's a case of once bitten twice shy for having early scans for me ..
