Amanda, there was a lawsuit a few years ago by a woman who had a D&C for a blighted ovum and then several weeks later delivered a baby without limbs...a very sad case. Let me see if I can find the link...
Okay, here is a quick one, you have to scroll down for the blurb on the misdiagnosed blighted ovum. I know it made headlines so you could probably find more in depth articles about it.

Truthfully I think this is happens occasionally but I tend to think that when a woman goes back, they just do another D&C for "left over fetal tissue" I tend to wonder how much of the 'fetal tissue' cases are live babies.
I look all over the web and am so saddened by all the D&C's done for blighted ovums at only 8 weeks or before. There was a huge chance those pregnancies were just fine but not much you can do about it after the fact...so sad.
