no sac, no pole, no hb @ 7.5 wks - misdiagnosed!

Postby brokedownpalace » Mon Aug 08, 2005 3:29 pm

Here is my post from last week: I had my first u/s yesterday at 7.5 wks and I have been a mess ever since. There was no heartbeat, no fetal pole, no yolk sac, and my uterus was too smalf for my dates. Also I started spotting brown blood day before yesterday, and pg symptoms have gone away. The spotting has eased up considerably, maybe a stain here & there on TP. I had bloodwork yesterday, more tomorrow & another u/s on monday. Dr. is convinced it is over & that nothing will be found on u/s. He asked if I could have ovulated/concieved late. I said yes, because I think my luteal phase is much shorter than the average. I think I concieved 5 days after when an average women would have concieved using my dates. He said that since my cycles were average, 27.5 days, that it was unlikely to be the problem.

I had the u/s today and the first thing the tech saw was the sac, then the fetal pole, then she said "162 beats per minute!" I saw it with my own teary eyes. Flicker after beautiful flicker. My baby is alive and well, and strong! Thank God. Baby is measuring 7w 2d which is a whole week off according to my LMP. I also have a tilted uterus, and the first machine is a dinosaur - too old! I cannot wait for my appt on Wed. to hear what my Dr. has to say! He is a very good, experienced , award winning Dr. too whom I admire and respect. You just can't beat God! Blessings to you all.

:ohyeah: :dance: :ohyeah:

Congrats to you. Just keep in mind, we've seen pretty consistantly that women with a tilted uterus often look a week or two behind during the first trimester and then date more correctly during the second trimester so take those dates with a grain of salt.

To read my own Misdiagnosed Miscarriage stories:
my blighted ovum scare
Told I was miscarrying at 12 weeks

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

That is such amazing news... im in the same boat as you.... I was under the impression I was 8 weeks along... and at the U/S place I was told i was 7 weeks.......

Then at my GP's she told me that they could not see a fetal heartbeat or even a yolk sac....she also thinks that I may have had a missed abortion...

so im on pins and needles now... but reading your story gives me hope...

:) thanks
