I just thought I should post here as some of the other members encouraged me to after hearing my story. So, I will try to keep it short and sweet.
According to my LMP I should be 10+ weeks pregnant right now, but I am not...I am 7 1/2 weeks along and that is where the problems started. See, when the doctors schedule your first appointment they do so off of your LMP, so, according to this when I went in for my first appointment I was suppose to be 8 weeks pregnant. They did an ultrasound and all they could see was a sac dating 5 1/2 weeks and a yolk sac. My doctor started asking me if I was sure on my dates and I was! BUT, I ovulate late and it's like they don't even take that into consideration. So, she started telling me that I probably had a blighted ovum and would miscarry soon but to go ahead and have some blood work done to see what my numbers looked like. She even spoke of a D&C and the "miscarry pill." The blood tests came back normal and they were consistant with what showed up on ultrasound, so she told me to wait two weeks and come in for another US. I did just that this last Tuesday and sure enough the baby measured 7 1/2 weeks and it's little heart was beating a mile a minute. The doctor said "Oh, we have good news, there is a baby and a heartbeat!" :bananas: So, to all of you out there don't loose hope. I was devastated at my first appointment and was convinced that I had a blighted ovum. Later I started to trust my gut and realize that I need to think positive. So, whatever you do, don't rush into having procedures done. Let your body guide you and stay positive. There may be a good chance that you have been misdiagnosed as well:pray:
