I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has shared their stories on this website. I found out I was about 5 weeks pregnant 2 weeks ago. Due to a miscarrage in November my doctor scheduled me for an u/s right away. I was told immediatly I had a blighted ovum. After 3 more u/s and almost two weeks of waiting to miscarry on my own I called my doctor today and requested a D&C. She was more than willing to schedule it and just needed me to come in for one more u/s due to the fact that my hormone levels were rising like a normal pregnancy. I could not believe her when she told me there was a heart beat and she could actually make out a fetal pole.
I am scheduled for another u/s in 4 days. After such a devistating diagnosis I am scared to be happy or hopefull again. I am so so thankful for that last u/s. If I would have seen this website earlier I would have never even considered a D&C.
When my doctor told me less than 3 days ago I had a 99.9% chance I was miscarring because she saw nothing but an empty sac I believed her. What a shock that so many women have had similar misdiagnosis. My boyfriend just tells me to keep my faith and that he has thought I was fine all along ;)
I thank you all again for your stories and your hope. I'm going to try to stay positive and believe a little more of what is in my heart rather than what my doctor says. You'r all in my thoughts and prayers.
