I found out that I was pregnant the friday before mother's day of 2005. I made an appointment with my OB for my first appointment 2 weeks later I was measuring 6 weeks 5 days at the time of my appointment. The doctor did and U/S and informed me that she could not see the baby. She told me that I was likely to miscarry and told me that if the bleeding got really bad that I should come in. She made it seem like there was no hope. She also ordered blood work to check out my hcg and progesterone levels. On wed. they were in the 24,000 and on friday they were in the 42,000 my progesterone levels were low. She wanted to schecule another u/s exactly 1 week after my first u/s. It was the most agonizing tormenting week of my life I felt lost and scared and didn't understand why this was happening. I couldn't eat and I cried all the time. The OB had been so quick to diagnose a miscariage and gave me the feeling that there was no hope. Every cramp I felt I thought that was it that I was not going to have this baby. I called so many OB's and I got all the same answers, it was too early to tell that there wouldn't be anything to see in the u/s in the first place and that I should not stress because that was bad in itself. I went in for my appointment and I asked about having a retroverted uterus, she said that that was a possibility and that she really thought that it was a blighted ovum. She did the U/S and there it was, my baby beating heart and all. I broke down into tears as I saw that. She said that I was right about having a retroverted Uterus. The baby was only measuring 6weeks 5 days, according to her but according to our calculations I should have been 7 weeks 5 days, but only time will tell as we have all read I am sure, that having a retoroverted uterus will sometimes make the U/S off by a week or so until we are further along. I am just so thankfull that God has given me what I see as a second chance to be a mother. I wish that Doctors could be a little more compassionate and not give us a diagnosis that they arent sure of. I hope that this brings some hope to other women that are experiencing the same torment that some of us have gone through here. Good Luck girls, and believe in the power of prayer.
