Your OB would have called if there was anything was wrong, but I would definitely call their office, explain what happened, and that you just wanted reassurance that everything was good to go (especially since you weren’t allowed to see it for yourself).

A pregnancy ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to image the developing baby as well as the mother’s reproductive organs.

The average number of ultrasounds varies with each pregnancy.

Both these situations are considered largely avoidable.

In our practice, the EDC will be determined at the first prenatal visit whenever possible, and subsequent ultrasounds, which often will report a different (often earlier) EDC will not override the first EDC.

However, in the first trimester there is very little variation in fetal size, and so it turns out that an ultrasound done between 7 and 13 weeks is the most accurate. Compare the maximum error that each ultrasound can potentially have, and you'll see what I mean: This means that a pregnancy for which no period dates are available, and who did not get an exam or ultrasound until the third trimester, can have an EDC which could conceivably fall within a range as broad as 42 days! The main situation where this can cause a bit of friction between provider and patient is when the patient has uncertain dates, and/or a late ultrasound, and feels like she's close enough to full term to ask for her labor to be induced, yet she has a cervix which is unripe, or unfavorable for induction.

This can sometimes lead, if one isn't careful, to unnecessary induction of labor, which can result in unnecessary cesarean section, or delivery of a premature baby, who then requires transfer to a special care nursery.

I'm so sorry you couldn't see your little bean! My midwife also told me “no news is good news” but that if I wanted to call and discuss test results I was always free to leave a message and she would call me back! Your husband has the right to share in those experiences and memories because that's when you get to see your previous baby. I was okay with it at that point because my OB said there wouldn’t be anything to really see and we may not even see the heartbeat at that stage.

I called to follow up on NT bloodwork results this week and unfortunately results are not back yet but she still called to let me know! My next US was my 12 week scan, and it was done at the lab below my OB’s office.

In fact, the only time that this doesn't apply is when the date of conception is known without doubt, as when an infertility patient conceives with timed intercourse or artificial insemination.
