So here is my story.....My LMP was 3/10/2010. I had a positive pregnancy test on 04/13/2010. My hcg level 2 days later was 180. About 9 days later, I started to have some brown spotting, so I went for an u/s and the gestational sac was measuring 5 wks 1 day. Tech said it was too early probably to see much else....so didn't really panic at this point. They drew my blood the day before and my level was 12,000!
Had another scan about 10 days later....gestational sac measuring 6 wks 6 days. But empty...no yolk sac, no baby, nothing. So I knew most people would see something by now....so I of course was crying my eyes out. (not knowing my tilted uterus could get in the way of an u/s, being that I'd neve had one that early!) So doctor told me I should be "pro-active" and schedule a d & c, cause I had a blighted ovum and it would be best to just move on. Well despite what he said, I would have preferred to miscarry naturally.....so I went home. Pretty much the saddest Mothers Day weekend ever for me.
Just waiting to start bleeding with every little pain or cramp.
I found this website and your stories truly gave me hope and the will to not give up!
Well yesterday I called them and asked for another u/s to just make me feel better. And there today measuring perfectly at 7 weeks 6 days is our little bean sprout, yolk sac and hb of 169
!! Think how awful it would have been if I would have just gone along with him and done the d & c!! My precious baby would not be here!!
I'm thankful to God that he gave me strength and the smarts to NOT listen to my doctor!
