My 1st OB appt was Nov.19 due to my LMP I was 5-6wks preg and he found the utz strange he's not seeing anything yet. He saI lost my baby last December 5 2018, I was about 4-5weeks pregnant.
My lmp was October 3-5, 2018. I tried several time to do PT during October and it was negative. Nov.2 I was expecting to have my period but I missed it so I did PT again on Nov 6 and it was + .id probably it was still early or the baby didn't grow.He advised me to do the Beta HCG but I didn't do it as I get disappointed.
Dec.5 I had my 2nd appt with diff OB in the clinic the 1st one was private OB. She considered I was 9 wks preg due to my LMP. She said she's seeing something but not yet too visible which is unlikely because it should be visible by 9wks. She suggested an internal/pelvic exam, it was painful. I did the beta hcg as advised. We went home after 30mins I started spotting. At 4pm we got the beta hcg result I was 4-5wks preg.

I had an internal scan with my son who is now 11 months old. I asked the same question to the nurse who undertook the scan and the reply she gave me was that they would not do the scans if it would cause a miscarriage. It is also very common to have spotting after the scan as your cervix is extremely sensitive in early pregnancy.
Hope all goes well.
