Beth shared her story on my Misdiagnosed Miscarriage Stories page:
I wanted to let you know that I am expecting twin not-so-blighted ovums. Feel free to add my story to your website! I went to the doctor on a Friday afternoon at 6 weeks, 2 days. The doctor was able to locate 2 sacs, but both were empty. She told me that unless my dates were wrong, this was not a viable pregnancy. She sent me to the hospital for HCG quantitative bloodwork. My first number the day of my scan was 34,700. Two days later, it was 58,000. The doctor called me up and told me that at a level of 34,700, there should have been babies and heartbeats in the sacs, and that I almost certainly had a blighted ovum. We decided to repeat the ultrasound to be sure. On Wednesday afternoon (exactly 5 days after my first scan), I went to my appointment having spent the last several days grieving the loss of my babies. As the ultrasound tech got to work, I waited for the confirmation that there were still no babies in the sacs. Suddenly, the sacs were in view, and I practically jumped off the table when clear as day there were TWO babies and TWO flickering heartbeats! Everyone's jaws were on the floor. My husband and I were in tears. We thought all hope was lost. You just never know!
