6w B/O? UPDATE: MISDIAGNOSED

Postby lola » Fri Aug 11, 2006 1:59 pm

I found out i was pregnant just this past weekend- home test was positive, went in to get blood test got results:positive hcg level 16,177 that was on monday.tues i went for an ultrasound d/t pain...cause: a cyst. they wanted to confirm tht my pregnancy was not etopic, but upon examination tech found gestational sac, and yolk sac, but no fetal pole- thus no heartbeat. I am very worried. I figured i was 4 weeks but the tech says my g-sac indicates: 6 weeks and 2days...which she kept repeating we should see at least the fetal pole by now.
I changed doctors so i cannot compare my new hgc level with the old because they said different hospitals totally different tests..
Has anyone ever measured further along than they thought? anyone have any suggestions for me?
I am so sad..

It is sooo early for you. Some people on here don't see a heart beat until 9 weeks. 6 weeks is a general rule of thumb as to when you should see the heartbeat but every baby is different. You still have lots of hope :)

They should repeat an U/S on you in 1 week.

Lola,

I am so sorry that you are going through this. I know how tormenting it is! I hope that you get some good news. You are sooo early. I really think it is too early for this pregnancy to be doomed. You could have ovulated and/or implanted late. I personally wouldn't trust a diagnosis until the minimum of 10 weeks. Even with that, if I got bad news, I would want to wait another few weeks before even considering anything. It is best though if you can miscarry naturally if that is to occur. D&C's have the risk of over scraping the uterus which can cause more problems down the road for pregnancy - ashermans.com. People I know who miscarried naturally, went on to conceive more quickly than those who had a D&C.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you! Big hugs!!!!!

I was told I would miscarry when they measured me to be 6w1d and found no fetal pole or heartbeat. one week later there was a baby and a heartbeat!! you are way to early to write this off and please keep your hopes up till you know for sure. I know the waiting is absolute torture!!!!!

Such wonderful news.

I cannot tell you how I hate when they scare women unnecessarily. Six and even seven weeks is too early to diagnose a blighted ovum. This site alone is proof of that.

Congratulations...you made my evening :)
