Hi everyone, I would really appreciate some advice,
this is/was? my first pregnacy. I came off the pill in
dec03 and my LMP was on 31 March04 but I didn't get a
positive test result until 31 May, I had been testing
quite often and had always got negative results. Dr said from
LMP that I was 13 weeks and did a u/s
yesterday, they told me I had miscarried and wanted to
do a d&c. After some calculations I
thought perhaphs I could be only 6/7 weeks, I told dr
I was worried about the dates he agreed to do
another scan in a weeks time. I feel confused I haven't had any
symptoms of a m/c no bleeding or cramps. The only
symptoms I have had thoughout the pregancy are tender
breasts & frequent urination, which I think I still
have but can't tell much at the moment as I just feel
so upset and exhausted from not sleeping last night.

My notes say "Intrauterine sac present, embryo absent,
bulky uterus containing irregular shaped sac, no fetal
part seen. u/s appearance suggests incomplete abortion
although molar changes cannot be excluded" I was in
too much shock to ask any questions at the time. Does
anyone have any experience of this and can a baby
still be ok if it is an "irregular shaped sac"? does
the fact that I have a "bulky uterus" mean that my
dates are probably right? Is it possible that they
missed the embryo as they were looking for a 13 week
one, I also didn't know that I was going to have a
scan so I did not have a full bladder. If I have m/c why were there no symptoms & how long does it take for it to leave the body naturally?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
Cut up & Confused

That's about the same thing my notes said. It could be a blighted ovum, or you could just be too early to tell.

Mine, they said I was 15 weeks, and I KNOW I was 9! Don't let them rush you and trust your gut instincts. If you do the d&c before you're ready, it will bother you. I did mine because my doctor pushed me into it, and now I realize I wish I'd waited/got a second oppinion

To answer your question about it leaving the body naturally, you should never wait longer than a month, as you risk infection, and even cancer if it is a m/c and goes untreated. Also, if you did m/c and your body freaks out, you'll get this 'fake labor' sort of thing, my best friend went through that, she was in the ER like 6 times in one month, and she spent most of her time hunched over. Don't mean to worry you, I'm just telling you because I was with her a few of the times, and I couldn't stand seeing her like that!

Sorry to scare you. If you don't trust what your doctor is saying, GET A SECOND OPPINION SOON!

Good luck.

Even if you are only 6/7 weeks along, an ultrasound should still pick up the embryo. I had one done at 5 weeks due to previous m/c's and they could see and hear the tiny heartbeat along with the little embryo with no problem. However, if you are very uncomfortable with having a d&c done at this point, don't let your doctor bully you into it. Get a second opinion.
