My Mood:
I had two loses, one at 7 weeks and one at 12 weeks. For me, I appreciated having more ultrasounds. I really needed the extra reassurance to stay sane. The extra ultrasounds allowed me to enjoy pregnancy in a way I wouldn't have been able to do without the ultrasounds. I wasn't completely without worry, but it did ease my mind a lot to see the baby was okay and to know that I would be able to check again soon. I also rented a doppler so I could check at home. I don't think the extra monitoring is right for everyone. For some it might just add to the stress. But for me, it helped. I'm so sorry for your losses. *hugs*
