Doctor was "pessimistic",but found the heartbeat a

Two weeks ago, i had an u/s at what i thought was about 5 weeks. there was a gestational sac, that appeared normal. We went back last week at 6 weeks to see the heartbeat...and there was none. The sac had not grown any, but oddly enough had developed a yolk sac. The doctor said he honestly did not have any hope for the pg. He said we could wait as long as i wanted before doing a D&C. He went ahead and set up the D&C for tomorrow and had me come in today for a last u/s and a pre-op visit. He started the ultrasound and said in a shocked voice "well, there is your miracle baby" i have a perfect 5w6d fetus beating away!! He apologized over and over for worrying me, but im not angry, im just glad i waited! He says he is truly shocked by what happened, but it proud to be wrong in this case. My head was telling me this would not be viable and that i needed to steel myself for my third m/c. But, something kept tugging at my heart..mommys instinct i guess!

Never lose hope. This website has been so great for me, and i hope my story can help someone. Please feel free to share it!

Oh Rhonda, you brought tears to my eyes.

I wasn't angry when we found my baby either, even knowing my doctor tried twice to unintentionally abort her. I was just so grateful to have found her. She is two now and I still get overwhelmed sometimes when I think about what might have been.

Congrats to you. Keep us updated on how you and your little one are doing.

Blogging on Misdiagnosed Miscarriages
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
