    Is this really true? Absolutely terrifies me as I have had a scan every single week of my first trimester (sometimes twice a week) due to IVF, previous miscarriages, miscarrying this bubs twin, bleeding and a subchronic hematoma...all very good reasons to be having the scans (I admit a couple of the scans were more to put my mind at ease as I was so scared I was losing the baby again )
    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

    Yeps that scares me as well. It's so easy to pick up a good heart rate for the 30-60 seconds that your listening to and for a deceleration to happen afterwards.

    but as you said - different discussion lol

    Go through and read everyone else's comments to put your mind at ease. I think you sound very much like I will be, needing scans for my own reassurance that my baby is still alive. I believe the benefits of scans far outweigh the risk and that this post is very uninformed. I'm sure your baby is fine.

    Also- another comment in regards to OP looking for like-minded people and not wanting to offend. I clicked on this thread because of the title and it being in first trimester chat, it seemed like something valid that I may want to read since I am TTC after a loss. The title doesn't insinuate she's looking for like-minded people, it insinuates its going to be informative which is probably why many of us clicked on it, out of curiosity. She chose to use very offensive and hurtful vocabulary like 'murder' and to, in a sense, 'fear-monger' with no credible links.

    Because the OP did not start a discussion piece based on her opinions or gut feelings (well, she did, but that's not how she presented it). She started it based on a number of "facts" that she presented which contradict current medical advice, and have nothing to back them up.

    To entitle a thread 'why you shouldn't [insert medical advice here]' and to throw around false statistics (e.g., that most ultrasounds wrongly diagnose Down syndrome), along with emotive phrases such as the use of the word 'murder' when talking about a termination... All of these things are going to get people's backs up, and I think the OP should rightly be challenged on them.

    Her advice is not only incorrect, but is fear mongering, and dangerous.

    Had she started a topic that said she personally felt nervous about ultrasounds and wasn't going to get one, then people may have been gentler in their approach.

    Hugs hun. I can appreciate that this would scare you a bit.

    Like Kirst33 said go back through this thread and read the replies. Maybe talk to your ob as well. They should be able to put your mind at ease a bit.

    Sending you good vibes for the rest of your wonderful pregnancy

    I suspect the study referred to in the OP is over 10 years old- here is what the AMA had to say about it:

    Yes, that was the only study I could find - and it was based on data from the 1970s, and showed a possible correlation between ultrasound and left handedness in male babies.
