I just wanted to post this story of hope, because I spent so much time looking at this site in an agonising two weeks wait to find out whether I had a baby inside me, or a 'blighted ovum'.
I went for a dating scan at around 7 weeks and was told that they could see nothing, but am empty sac on the scan. They treated me as though I should expect to miscarry what was probably a 'blighted ovum' and I was devastated and really stressed. I had to wait for another scan over a week later and it was an AGONISING week for me, my partner and even my 7 year old, who kept saying: "I hope we don't lose it!" as she had been there at the badly handled scan.
I asked whether I had a retroverted uterus and was told that I did not. I knew that could mean I would see the baby later on and that the view could be impaired for the scanner.
Two weeks later, we saw the fetal pole and then after that a heart beat. I was so relieved, but it took a while to get over that really shaky start. The shaky start turned out to be TOTALLY unnecessary. They simply looked too early. I am now 23 weeks and the baby is totally fine and guess what??? I DO have a retroverted uterus. I only found that out at my last scan, which was 22 weeks.
Don't give up hope when they give you early results. Retroverted or not...they get you in a state because sometimes people aren't good communicators or are natural pessimists and really...there's NO need for all the drama dn negativity and stress. They should shut their mouths til way later on in the process!!!
I am wishing strength and positive thinking to all those women in the horrible limbo land of waiting for that 'scan' that will tell them all is OK. Don't believe everything they tell you!!!!
