Misdiagnosed miscarriage no heartbeat

Common Questions and Answers about Misdiagnosed miscarriage no heartbeat

miscarriage

I choose to have a natural miscarriage. I have had no bleeding or cramping and did not have a period in September. I did have an ultrasound in August and they saw a sac. I now have what you would call a "baby bump." I did not have it last month even though I did gain weight with the beginning of my pregnancy.
The tech took 20 minutes to figure out how to take a picture and barely looked at the yolk sack. The doctor came in and was like no heart beat you miscarried expect heavy bleeding and cramping. ( he was that rude.) However I have no bleeding or spotting anymore, no cramping at all, and I still feel pregnant. My breasts hurt, I'm sick to my stomach.
So at my appt the doc checked again via ultrasound and found a fetus measuring 9 wks 5 days when I should have been 13 and there was no heartbeat. I was diagnosed with a miscarriage and sent to the hospital to discuss my options. I was given the option of having a d & c right away or waiting 2 weeks to see if my body expelled everything on its own. I opted to wait the two weeks but nothing happened so I went for the d&c.
//home.earthlink.net/~misdiagnosed/ We need to get the word out there to help other women. It is such a tormenting time to be told that there is a dead baby inside of you. It is best to wait things out just incase there is a misdiagnosis. I wish you all a happy and safe pregnancy!
At just under 6 weeks I went for a scan and he found 2 sacs, 1 empty and appeared to be full of blood and quite large (he reckoned this was where the bleeding was from) and the second sac continued 'something' no fetal pole yet and no heartbeat yet (which he said was not unusual as very early but was or may not be viable). I then went for a blood test and all was how it should be at 6 weeks.

I was told to go the early pregnancy hospital dept, inwhich they took blood and gave me a probe scan, they found a sac but no baby? They told me to go back in 2 days to compare the levls of hormone. The level on the Tuesday were 9000 and then on the Thursday were 10500, so therefore they had only risen by 1500. They told me it is unlikely that it is an ongoing pregnancy and that it looks like i had miscarried.
There was a sac, yolk sac and fetal pole, but tech said that baby stopped growing around 7 wks and there was no heartbeat. Dr came in and said I could either wait to miscarry naturally or have a d&c TOMORROW???? Omg, that is so soon. They said that the pregnancy is NON VIABLE!!! I have read many stories about misdiagnosed miscarriages and I felt like I wanted to wait a little while. In the mean time, I did more bloodwork, which came back 41050 at 8w5d, up from 7583 at 6w0d.

I should now be 7 w 2 d according to my lmp. He looked again and said there was no change. The u/s looked different to me today though. He said it was to be a miscarriage. I am so sad and depressed because I was married before to someone who could not get me pregnant ( he had a low sperm count) and we eventually divorced. I am now happily married for 3 years and we both really wanted this. It is crushing blow since it only took us TWO months to GET PREGNANT!!!!
To our surprised there was a baby with a heartbeat and the gestational sac was no longer misshaped. I am however still spotting like I have been for the past 3 weeks and my doctor doesn't like that so he has me going in every 2 weeks for an ultra sound. He also prescribed me prometrium which has decreased my spotting a lot already. At the last ultra sound the doctor said I'm measuring almost a week behind what I thought I was so hopefully by the next one I will have caught up.
I just had my first dr appt. I was thinking that I am 8 wks, but according to the ultrasound, I was only 7 wk 2 days. (The only way I know this is because I looked on the monitor). They also told me there was no heartbeat and the baby had deceased. I was advised to have a D&C, take meds to induce miscarriage, or wait for it to happen naturally. They did not check my HCG levels at all nor did they discuss anything about the ultrasound, except that there was no heartbeat.
I also had a follow-up scan about a week later, just to make sure, but unfortunately, there was no growth and still no heartbeat. I too am very sorry you have to go through all this, and I hope your next scan gives you some good news...but if not, please know that you're not alone. So many of us have experienced losses, and we're all here for you if you need to talk.
I am sure Dani will reply to this message. she went to the hospital and was told by the dr there that she had miscarried. turns out she hadnt and is still pregnant. im sure she will tell you the rest. am curious as to why said the blood work came back as a miscarriage. did she tell you why? did she tell you what the hCG reading was from the bloods that made her decide on miscarriage? I am very happy that you waited! i had a d&c the day after i found out i had lost the twins.
My last period was May 29th, which makes me 8 wks pregnant, I'm spotting since saturday a light brown color, I went to the dr on Tuesday July 22 and did a u/s you could see the fetus, but the doctor says there is no heartbeat. He said to wait that I would eventually miscarriage sometime in the next couple of days. I don't know what to believe, I don't have any cramping only once in a while a little pain. This is my second miscarriage in one year.
I went through the worst 5 minutes of my life as she scanned (externally this time) and as she moved over the baby and in her words ‘through’ it she explained and showed me there was no heartbeat present. The midwife said that the baby measured 18 mm and looked about 8 ½ weeks and I was supposed to be 9 weeks (to which I asked what difference does a couple of days). I asked her for a picture and left in tears.
Has anyone had anything similar happen? Sorry for the rant, glad to get it off my chest!
They had to prove to me beyond a shadow of doubt that the baby had stopped growing, because of my symptoms and because of the misdiagnosed miscarriage stories I read on the internet. I hope they're wrong about your loss.
Then repeated ultrasound October 24th and was told that there was an embryo but no heartbeat and the sac was starting to collapse. My uterus did not look tilted. Doctor repeated a BHCG and it came back dropped at 25733 iu/l. She said I was going to miscarry. They are positive i'm going to miscarry...does this seem accurate? I am not holding out too much hope. Is there any point in even repeating an ultrasound in a week or 2? Thanks in advance.
I found out yesteday that I have twins and neither have a heartbeat (I submitted a posting yesterday but only got 1 response). They wanted me to have a D&C but I chose to have Hcg levels drawn 48 hours apart before going forward with the D&C. My question is...Does anyone know how long it takes to miscarry after embryo vitality ends (it is/was twins)? It seems like I'm just sitting around the house waiting to bleed.
My hcg levels on 10-7 were at 21,000 but they were unable to detect a heartbeat and told me that the prenancy is no good. I believe I concieved around September 2nd/3rd. Should I request another blood test to make sure my hcg levels are dropping and/or do another ultrasound to double check before I proceed with the D&C. I have no bleeding and feel fine (no nausea and only a little soreness in my breast). The Doctor said she was 99% sure I was going to miscarry.
That is called a missed m/c, when you go in and baby is not measuring what it should be, or you go in see heartbeat and go back 2-3 weeks later and no heartbeat. I had a missed m/c. U/S showed i was 10weeks 1day. I shouldve been 10weeks 3 days. I no my body pretty well and new something was wrong just from me waking up not being hungry so i went to er to get labs drawed and u/s, and sure enough there was no heartbeat.
Same happened to me. Waited another 2 weeks for next u/s and nothing really changed, no growth, no heartbeat. I am too the mother of 2 healthy children. It's my first miscarriage and it's been very emotional and difficult. I will have a D&C in 2 days. I know exactly what you're going through. If you want my advice, don't give up hope until the last minute, cause I didn't, but also be prepared for the worst, don't bring more suffering than you can take upon yourself.
