my misdiagnosed miscarriage

So a few weeks ago I went to the ER because I was spotting brown blood but in small amounts. They did a transvag Ultrasound and didnt really see anything but a sac. They said it was possible I was not as far along as I thought and to go see my doc.

3 days later I went to my OB to see what was going on (6weeks). He did an exam my cervix was closed then I was sent to get B-HCG on 2 different days. It only went up about 4000 in two days. Then he decided to do a transvag ultrasound. During the exam all he saw was a sac. He then told me that they baby just didnt grow and that I should or could have a d&C done. Something told me to wait so I told him I would call tomorrow with my decision.

That night I did research on the net and came across this site as well as others that said the doc could be wrong. So the next day I told him I was going to wait it out.

Fast Forward to two weeks later. I went to the doc today not knowing what to expect as nothing has happened at home except the brown blood stopped after a week. But there was no new blood. He then told me that it was possible my body reabsorbed what ever was in there. But he would do a ultrasound to be sure.

Well when he did (a transvag) he pulled it out quickly and then started loooking at my chart. Then he put it in again and I couldnt see the screen so I said is there a baby in there? And he said YES!

The little bean is there and measured 8 weeks which is what I should have been yesterday so it is right on target with my LMP. We also saw the heart beating on the screen!! And I could tell that my sac had grown. You could see the heart beat so perfect. The doc has never ever seen this he said and I said well now you have.

SO I hope someone reads this and decides to wait it out a bit to see what happens. I was misdiagnosed! My little bean is looking perfect!
