From inevitable miscarriage TO HEALTHY BABY

Postby relativeus » Tue Jan 20, 2009 11:12 pm

I was 9 weeks 3 days and went in to the dr. for the first ultrasound. The dr. searched for some time to find the gestational sac, and finally announced it had stopped developing around 6 weeks. This would make miscarriage #3 for me so I was crestfallen to say the least. I was so overwhelmed that I didn't even ask if there was a heartbeat or not. I saw it myself and it did not look like a 9 week fetus, no arm or leg buds or anything recognizable. Just a circle in a sac. I was still having ridiculous nausea and breast tenderness and decided to go in and get the pill to speed the process along. Who wants to feel pregnant if you are not !? So, 4 days later, i went to a different dr. and she did an ultrasound before prescribing me anything, and LO AND BEHOLD a 9 1/2 week fetus with a beating heart and WAVING ARMS!!! She said everything looked perfect and had no real explanation as to the other dr.'s blunder.

Just goes to show, there are many types of misdiagnosed miscarriages. This site is not just for women who don't see their babies by seven on eight weeks.

I'm glad you didn't take that pill. Too many women do and then later email me wondering if they made a mistake.

Blogging on Misdiagnosed Miscarriages
If you are being diagnosed with a blighted ovum after IVF, please take a look at this article I put together: Misdiagnosed Miscarriage After IVF
and why I just believe a blighted ovum should NOT be diagnosed before nine weeks at the earliest and the UK's new guidelines support this

There's so many misdiagnosed miscarriages on this website and I am glad to see you're one of them!

Thanks for sharing your story. I hope it makes other women think twice before buying into some doctor's opinion at such an early stage of pregnancy.
