Bleeding - chorioangioma diagnosis and small fetus/large sac

Postby mooky » Tue Jun 03, 2008 11:26 pm

Hello, Looking to find out if anyone has had this happen to them. I am currently 7w 2 days pregnant. Have some bleeding last Friday and went in for an early u/s. Dr. said first he didn't see a viable pregnancy, then mass in the gestational sac which he thought was a polyp perhaps - THEN found heartbeat by the mass. He said it was strong.. but the fetus was small for it's age.
He sent me to a specialist for another u/s yesterday. This doctor didn't see the mass, but said the sac is sized for 7/8 weeks, fetus still has heartbeat but is sized for six weeks... He said wait and see as we might miscarry in two weeks.
I talked to my original dr. today who showed today the specialist the picture of the mass from Friday. Now the doctors think I have Chorioangioma..which I guess is a mass of blood cells on the placenta? They said that's a concern, but the bigger concern was the small size of the fetus.
The doctor offered me another u/s in two days to check again as this is driving me crazy. He said if he can't see growth or a heart beat anymore from Friday, then he recommends a d&c the following day.

Just wondering if anyone else has had anything similar. The bleeding has pretty much stopped - just slight bleeding. The m/s comes and goes.. none today. :( I'm 34 and this is my first pregnancy. Just hoping it keep on growing... I'm a wreck.
Thanks so much.

As long as you have a heartbeat, you have hope. For now, focus on that and take the joy that comes with it. U/s measurements are frequently off in early pg and anomylies such as yours often resolve themselves. Hope this turns out well for you. God bless.

Just got back from another u/s, now 8w2d... both regular dr. and specialist were there this time... and everything is now OK!! Baby is now measuring 8w2d, sac is clear, compared to last week when I was measuring 6 weeks in a 7-8 week sac!!

They said normal strong heartbeat, and no sign of the chromoangioma thing all -- all looks healthy! They were amazed! Said this is why they are doctors... I do have a tilted uterus, so I'm guessing that's the only reason for the last two ultrasounds being so confusing. What a week!

Thanks to all for your support here. I wouldn't have remained sane or relaxed last week with out everyone.javascript:emoticon('E%3E')

Why, why, why do doctors insist on worrying us??? How difficult would it have been for them to just say they want to take another look a week out or so?

I'm glad you got such good news. Congratulations, you are now officially a member of the 'misdiagnosed' group of women here :)

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
