Misdiagnosed!

Postby kimmyann1147 » Wed Nov 07, 2007 4:36 pm

Last week an ultrasound tech told me that with the abdominal ultrasound, my gestational sac was 7 weeks 3 days, but that it was empty. He said he would give us a 5% chance that there was a baby inside, no more.

Today my OB found the baby easily with a vaginal ultrasound. It measured 7 weeks and 3 days, meaning that I was 6 weeks at my last appointment. The baby looks great, with a terrific heart rate and yolk sac.

Last week I they gave us a 5% chance, today I am Mrs. 100%!!!!

Keep the faith, misdiagnosis happens!

Another Update, I am now 15 weeks pregnant. It has been a wild ride, but that was related to another issue, incompetent cervix. I have a cerclage placed to keep the cervix closed, and so far everything is going good. I'm really glad I found this site when I needed it, it helped me hold onto hope until we got that good ultrasound.

Just coming back to let this board know that my little "blighted ovum" is due any time! I get my cerclage out (for incompetent cervix) tomorrow. Today I saw a post on my IC support site from a woman that was told her pregnancy was a "misdiagnosed miscarriage". I hate to offer false hope, but I shared my story with her and told her to get a second US before her D&C.

Just think, if I had listened to that first Dr., my little sprout might not be gettting ready to make his grand entrance!

I'm really greatful for this site.

Kim

Oh Kim, I love updates! Thank you and, please, I hope you come back and share that birth story.

You know, sometimes I look at my now five year old daughter and get teary-eyed thinking that if I didn't have such a personal fear of the D&C procedure, she wouldn't be here. I cannot even imagine. It really can be a bit overwhelming to consider at times.

Don't think of it as false hope when you share your story. False hope would be something like, "You'll be okay, I know it" or something of that nature. What you are offering women is the chance to know that they can wait out a diagnosis and be 100% certain. Doctors make mistakes and women deserve to have no doubts of this diagnosis ever.

And, let me just end with a big YAY!!! I'm so happy to hear your update.

Update! August Traugott Oscar was born on June 26th, 2008.

After being told that he didn't even exist (BO), then stressing all pregnancy about prematurity due to incompetent cervix, he was born by uncomplicated c/s at 40w4d.

My doc recommended a c/s due to his size and position. His head never engaged, he just was happy to stay in there forever! I was disapointed to need a c/s, but after all I went through to get him here, it is a drop in the bucket in the long run.

Thanks to this site for getting me through my misdiagnosis.
