I had an early ultrasound because I had seen some very light spotting here and there around 4 weeks and some into the 5th week, but had stopped bleeding by the time I had the first ultrasound. I have been told I have a blighted ovum. We see the gestational sac and the yolk sac. This was seen when I was 6wks & 2days based on my LMP which was August 11th. They told me then I was either too early or I would miscarry since the sac was measuring around 5wks and they could not see a fetal pole or heartbeat. I had HCG drawn that day and again on Friday. The doctor said as long as my numbers were rising I should be fine.
Wednesday it was 18903 and Friday it was 35917. On Friday the doctor said with my levels being that high and based on my ultrasound (1st one) on Wednesday he was 99.9% sure I was going to miscarry because with levels that high...we should see something more on the ultrasound. I took another ultrasound that day even though the doc said it was pointless (he is very cold) and still only gestational sac and yolk sac. I am going to get another opinion because I went back Monday (yesterday) for what was supposed to be a follow up appointment, but he didn't even look at me. He basically just said that he was 100 percent sure I was going to miscarry and there was no need to be hopeful. I still feel pregnant...have pregnancy symptoms and nausea has gotten even stronger each day. I have not had any bleeding or spotting last week or this week. I really hope he is wrong and the new doctor office which I am gonna call today is able to see my baby! Even if he is right he has no need to be so insensitive like this baby is nothing. This is a life we are talking about here! How dare he tell me not to be hopeful.
Please keep me and my husband in your prayers. I've read some stories on here that have been kind of similar to mine and it has definitely given me hope. I am going to make sure I ask if I have a titled uterus and any other questions I can think of. I will make sure I write them down and tell them to explain further to me why they think I have a blighted ovum if they diagnose me with the same thing. The other doctor was not really good at explaining it or he just didn't care to. We mentioned this site and he looked at us like we were stupid for questioning if he could possibly be wrong! He's not God so I'm keeping the faith. If God wants me to have this baby, I will!
Everything is fine with baby. We had a 20 week ultrasound 4 weeks ago and she is PERFECT! We tell our story here via video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9Pr9kBIqdk
