Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Hello - actually it is Perfectly SAFE to wait if you do NOT feel like doing this .

Dr Owen :

You are not going to have any troubles - and your body is more than likely and possibly going to 'discharge' this baby on its own given the discharge you are having.

Dr Owen :

Also, to help, you can actually use a medication called Cytotec to help you.

Dr Owen :

Also, this is not a viable pregnancy - and I know you are hoping that it is - but the two ultrasounds prove that it is not. I am sorry this has happened to you

Dr Owen :

If you have more questions, please ask

Dr Owen :

Thank you

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

but why am i feeling the movement?

Dr Owen :

actually it is impossible to feel movement from a baby UNTIL you are at least about 20 weeks - so this what you are feeling is actually your body trying to miscarry - has nothing to do with a baby moving - I am being very honest here, very honest

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

how long should i wait for next step and what are the risk factors plus is it possible that it can be my weakness of body because i wasn't eating properlyand i still dont.

Dr Owen :

Well You can wait up to a month - but honestly you are probably are not going to wait that long now that you know what is going on.

Dr Owen :

If you do not want the surgery - you can use the medication called Cytotec to help -

Dr Owen :

and honestly all that is going to happen is that you will have a heavy period - and you are NOT very likely to have or get any infection

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

well we are actually not in uk we are posted in pakistan and i am not sure if i should travel back for the next step please suggest if i can because health care over here is just not good enough

Dr Owen :

Actually pakistan has very good doctors - we have pakistani doctors here in the States - so I know they are very good

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

i just want assurance to travel in this situation

Dr Owen :

You can Definitely travel

Dr Owen :

this should not stop you from traveling at all

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

my gp have just said you might have axcessive bleeding on plan wich i dont want so according to my situation waht do you see

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

i dont have bleeding yet just a bit off brown discharge

Dr Owen :

Well the bleeding would be like a heavy period - nothing more

Dr Owen :

that is when you have the miscarriage occur - and usually it does not last more than a couple of hours

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

are you sure there is no hope?

Dr Owen :

I am 100% sure

Dr Owen :

I have been an ob/gyn for over 20 years

Dr Owen :

I see this all the time - and every woman I see wants there to be a possibility - this happens all the time - it really does

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

so dr can you explain these heart palpitations as well i think it is related to the situation too

Dr Owen :

just to reassure you a bit - 50% of ALL pregnancies - this occurs to

Dr Owen :

your heart palipitation is nothing more than you having anxiety - that is all it is -

JACUSTOMER-i1foouka- :

well i have them before i knew about the matter

Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

then you might have some anxiety as that is the number one reason for women having heart palpitations - and you might not know you have anxiety - most people do not - they just have possilble stress.

Dr Owen :

but getting BACK to this problem of the pregnancy -

Dr Owen :

just review what I have written
