A second opinion and the probability of pregnancy

User Profile
My daughter has not had a period since february 15th. She has taken pregnancy tests which have been positive but the doctor who has not done a pregnancy test says she is not pregnant. She has a very swollen stomach and has gained 2 stones without eating a lot, her breasts are tender and sore and leaking. She bought a doppler fetal heart monitor and picks up a rhythmn of between 135 and 141 and the occasional wooshing and clip clopping sound she also picks up her own rhythmn at 69-75. My problem is that I think she is clearly pregnant but can't get her to a hospital. She was booked for a fetal scan but was too scared to go as she did not know what was growing inside her. What should I do is it possible that the Dr could be wrong? I'm really confused! She did lose what appeared to be an immature fetus in June and has admitted to having intercourse the beginning of July where the condom split. She originally saw the dr the end of July. She is growing everyday and I see lots of movements

Given the data you provided (missing period from February 2009, lost immature fetus in July 2009, growing stomach each day, breasts tender and sore and leaking, heart rhythm between 135 and 141 with Doppler heart fetal monitor, pregnancy test not done, ultrasound scan not done), there is a big probability that your daughter is pregnant.
Checking for another opinion from another gynecologist might be a good option. The tests you mentioned (hormonal laboratory tests and ultrasound scan) are supposed to be done and can easily detect pregnancy.
