Saphire's Story - D&C Scheduled. Asked For a Final Ultrasound

Postby ssaphire2010 » Wed Jul 29, 2015 1:54 pm

I would like to start by saying that this sight saved my baby's life yesterday. Long story, but I will shorten it. i am currently 8 weeks pregnant. We have heard the baby's heart beat several times. Yesterday when at the dr.'s office she did an inside ultrasound and there was no movement coming from the baby. We were informed that the baby's heart was no longer beating. The dr. scheduled a d and c for the next morning. We left the office devastated. While at home I went online and came across this website. lots of women stating that they had requested a second ultrasound prior to d&c only to find out their baby was healthy. I called the dr.'s office and the dr. informed me that she herself was also having doubts, because their ultrasound machine was old. She scheduled a stat ultrasound and long story short, baby indeed has a heartbeat. Apparently what the dr saw on the ultrasound is a blood clot. She has already ordered a new machine by the way. Not out of the woods yet because of the blood clot, but I thought I would share the impact that this site had on us yesterday. Thank you.posting.php?mode=reply&f=14&t=313257&sid=6753119c8cc0d5293659bf27c9e7b981#

I am just so glad you requested another ultrasound. Keep in mind, it has not mattered a bit here if ultrasound equipment is new or old. There are babies that are just good at hiding and doctors should not be the ones doing their own ultrasounds. Even with the best equipment, they make far too many mistakes with it.

Congratulations to you!!! Keep us updated.

Had another ultrasound a couple days ago. Baby has a strong heartbeat and we were able to see it moving. Blood clot is shrinking also. Happy days. :)8
