misdiagnosed blighted ovum

Postby motheroftwins » Wed Jan 30, 2008 5:50 pm

Hello everyone. I had a miscarriage about 6 months ago due to a blighted ovum. I got pregnant again a few months ago and I was told at 5, then 6, then at 7 weeks that I was going to have a blighted ovum. I trusted my doctor and he told me to go ahead and do a D7C. I did just that and today I get the report back and they are telling me that there was afetus present when they did the D & C. They said that the report showed signs of conception and she said that meant there was a fetus present. My midwife gave me the results and my doc did my D &C. So now I am really upset knowing that I quite so soon. I waited until I started have the miscarriage on the last one but this one I just could nt go through the wait again and they told me it was certain. They only montiored my hcg levels twice. And they climbed up to 10,500 at 5 weeks. So I dont know what;s going on. If anyone can give me any insight on this I would appreciate it. I just want to know what this means. Could I have had a healthy baby? I am just sad that I gave up to early. Thats the last time I trust the doc whole heartily.

Oh no, I am so sorry. That is one of the main reasons we started this site. Too many doctors push D&Cs too soon. Some women, like myself, are nine weeks or more before seeing our babies.

I know there have been lawsuits for this sort of thing. I don't know if that is a road you want to go down or not. I'm just surprised they admitted it to you.

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

Thankyou so much for responding to my post. I didnt know if anyone would or not. I was just so frustrated and mad at myself for giving up now that I know there could have been a chance of survival. I am so worn out from all of this and now I am praying that the doctor does not make the same mistake again to somebody else. But thankyou again. I read your story and it made me cry. I hate myself for giving up. I didnt do it last time but I did this time.

I am so sorry for all you have been through. I know that it's hard to not know what could have been. However, you can't blame yourself this was not done intentionally. I know the pain of losing a child and now that I am pregnant again my ob says that I also have a blighten ovum. This website including your story has given me hope and now I know that I need to take my time and get a second opinion. Take care of yourself

Hello

Yes defintly get another opinion. I would without a doubt keep going until you know that it is time to do what needs to be done. If you have any doubt in your mind at all, I believe that you should just keep waiting until you are 100% ready. I was not 100% ready but everyone convinced me that I was so I did it and now I regret it. I am still trying to move on. Best of luck to you and I pray that you have a happy normal pregnancy. Please let me know how it goes.
