Liladybugz26's Story - Found Baby Right Before Scheduled D&C

Postby liladybugz26 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 4:42 pm

In early 2008, after a 6 week ultrasound my physician told me there was no fetal heartbeat. They drew blood, and called to tell me my hCG levels were too low. This along with no fetal heartbeat indicated a miscarriage. They ordered a D&C for the following morning.

I told my husband the news. We were both devastated especially since I miscarried just three months before this. He demanded to have a second ultrasound prior to the D&C so he could see for himself. I also welcomed this since I still felt very pregnant.

I arrived at the hospital 2 hours prior to the scheduled D&C for a second ultrasound. Immediately, I seen a heartbeat with my own eyes, and the doctor did not. I told him to scan back to where he just was, and he was in disbelief. Sure enough, it was a heartbeat! My husband and I were both thrilled and angry and the same time. My Ob/Gyn almost murdered my son! This was the last visit to this physician whom previously delivered two of my children.

My son is now a happy, healthy and thriving 6 year old. He is bright and beautiful. I hope that my story along with the others will help to prevent more people from having their baby unknowingly aborted.

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
