Butterfly's Story - Misdiagnosed in ER & by Doctor MISDIAGNOSED

Postby Baby Butterfly » Mon Jun 30, 2014 2:23 pm

I was 31 when I found out I was pregnant with my first, after being told i would never have children due to other issues. Well, as excited as I wanted to be, I was scared to death. My first scan was at 5w 6d and it took 2 hours to reveal a tilted uterus and a 4mm gestational sac. This was a transvaginal and done at the ER due to bleeding which turned out to be an sch. My hcg was 9381. The next week, 6w5d at the doc, we saw the same sac. I was told about blighted ovum. We tried again a few days later... Same sac. No pole, noting. I wanted to give it more time as my hcg was doubling like it should even though it was lower. At 7w5d with an abdominal scan, there was my baby, and her heart beating away! Glad I waited :) now, I'm 5w2d and pregnant again, and going through the same thing... Pessimist docs, and just waiting for 8 weeks to say I told you so!

They certainly made that pregnancy difficult for you, didn't they? You were much too early to diagnose. I'm sorry they are putting you through this again.

I love the new guidelines in the UK. If the gestational sac is growing, they should wait until it is 25mm and then wait a week to verify that it is indeed a blighted ovum. Of course, that is if there are no complications. Please, keep us updated.

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
