Re: to U/S or not to U/S?

Oh, momma!! Congrats on the new pregnancy! I just recently had a loss at 17 weeks. Ay my follow up appt we discussed how a future pregnancy would be handled. My Dr told me that I could/would have frequent (monthly) U/S to offer some reassurance. But truth be told... I would LOVE to see my little one each month, but I don't know if it would be reassuring. There was nothing that they could have done to save my son if whatever caused his death had been detected by an U/S in those moments... so... that leaves me with many of the same questions you have. Right now I am leaning towards the extra assurance, however once I am pregnant I may change my mind. I know I'm probably not much help in helping you decide... I just wanted to offer a bit of support and understanding!
