Hi, my name is Korin.
My husband and I found out we were expecting our third child on march 2nd with a positive test.
we havent been trying for a child, and use protection every time. However on february 15th we did have an "oops". I am 100% positive that this is the day we concieved as my LMP was feb 1-3 and I was most certainly ovulating.
Upon calling my midwife she scheduled me for my first u/s and visit on 3/19.
When we went into my u/s the technician found my gestational sac, however could not find the embryo. after waiting in the waiting room the midwife brought me back and told me she believed i had a blighted ovum and was to send me to the lab for blood tests. then i was sent home. later that night, the nurse called me and informed me that according to my Hcg levels (22k range) I should have an embryo with a beating heart, and since they didnt find it, they diagnosed me with a blighted ovum.
however I feel this is wrong. because A. my gestational sac was measuring 6 weeks, (right on with lmp and conception date) and my HCG levels were in the normal range.
the midwife didnt reccomend further testing, however i called them today to request further testing. as i am not scheduling a d&c and my husband and i are certain with our dates.
ultrasound today on 3/31 showed BABY and a heartbeat! 8weeks today. Edd is November 10th
