I am pregnant but my doctor says I am not?
Hello, I’m a 30 year old woman and i’m 18 weeks pregnant (yet my doctor says i’m not pregnant) and i’ve been feeling fluttering/quickening movements at my pubic hair line and I was wondering is it normal? My doctor won’t give me a referral to get an ultrasound but i know there is a baby inside of me and I just want to see my baby and make sure him/her is growing well. BTW I live in (…) and i’m 4’11” and over 300lbs
if you are so confident of being pregnant,that too of 18 weeks, then i find no reason whatsoever for the doctor not sending you for an ultra sound. this is a growing phase of the baby and definitely you need a usg scan. you can consult another doctor or get a scan done directly.
18 weeks pregnancy is enough to know you are pregnant or not by US or Bhcg and your abdomen size …get an US and see your baby if it is there…
I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN THOUGH. BUT THE DOCTOR MAY HAVE NOT FOUND ANY POSITIVE SIGNS OF PREGNANCY IN YOUR BODY THAT ARE RELATED TO HORMONAL CHANGES. HOWEVER,USG OF ABDOMEN SHOULD BE DONE TO CONFIRM. ITS NOT WORTH TAKING RISKS
if you feel movements in pubic area,then it has to be pregnancy. get pregnancy test done at home. and ultrasound will confirm pregnancy,if the urine test is false negative.
b hcg test is also useful in diagnosing pregnancy
