Need Ideas!

Postby Kay » Sun Mar 23, 2014 11:25 am

Over the years, I get asked the same questions over and over which is why I created pages on topics such as:

Is there hope with an enlarged yolk sac?

Misdiagnosed miscarriages after IVF

Bleeding during the first trimester

and more

However, I know there are many, many more questions on the minds of women during a misdiagnosed miscarriage scare so I've started
the Misdiagnosed Miscarriage Musings blog

What topics would you like to read about? I can't promise I'll get to each and every topic but your questions might help so many other women.

Thank you!

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

It would be great if you could do a post on HCG levels. Should they always double every 48 hours? Do they plateau at 8 to 9 weeks? What if they drop a little then? How accurately do HCG levels predict miscarriage?

I was told that I definitely have a blighted ovum based one small dip in HCG at 8 weeks and a single ultrasound where they couldn't see the heartbeat. It's confusing. I would love to see a post about this.

I can do that. I've written before on how so many women here have had non-doubling hCG numbers and have been just fine. Also, hCG levels can rise, plateau and/or drop and still be fine. (((hugs))) to you and thank you!

It would be great if you you could include some information about "vacuum aspiration" on the site. Under the medical management section, I think all of the stories are about D&C. For me, the midwife is offering vacuum aspiration as an option since it has a smaller chance of complications and scarring. There is also a much shorter recovery time.

That is a good idea. I just sort of lump them into the one 'surgical procedures' category but I know that would help women. Did you try doing a search of the site for MVA? I know we have stories here from women who have been through it.
