    It is never, never, never Ok to use the word murder when talking about termination. Whatever you may think of it. How offensive.

    Still, I would never forgive myself if something is wrong with bub and it's because of the scans
    Really hope your post is incorrect OP
    OP I really hope you are reading this and realise what an impact incorrect information can have on people. Especially to people like this who have more then enough stress and worry that they are going through.

    Bub4mepls please speak to your go to put your mind at ease - hugs for what you have been through and I hope you have nothing but happiness to come.

    Agree completely. I think I read the OP has had healthy pgs and children. So if that is the case she really doesn't understand what it's like to have a complicated or non viable pg. That's not actually her fault in itself. But a bit of empathy and thought goes a long way.

    No- she's UTD with her first, around 3 months or less. But I do agree she needs empathy and thought- using the m word how insensitive and offensive.

    This is the biggest load of scare mongering crap if I've ever heard!!! Is it an April fools joke??

    Ultrasounds are extremely safe and are extremely important in diagnostic measures for unborn fetuses.

    lol whoops don't know where that come from then, obviously from another thread I'd be reading, but it reinforces my point that she has never had a high risk or non viable pg.

    I agree. I wonder if the OP will come back and post her sources?

    I haven't read all of these posts but I disagree with the OP

    I had IUGR with my daughter and required multiple scans (total of 10) to monitor her health and growth.

    She is now an extremely healthy 4.5yr old
