When i was 12 weeks pregnant i started to bleed and pass large clots, i assumed it was a miscarriage so i went to the ER. They did an examine and said it appears to be a miscarriage but when they did an ultrasound my son was alive and kicking, and the bleeding stopped right after i left the hospital. The doctor told me its possible i was bleeding because the placenta was attaching to the wall of the uterus (which is normal). Anyways two days later i had a follow up appointment to check my HCG levels BUT when i was getting ready i started to bleed and pass clots again! So i went to the ER again. This time i brought my paper work from 2 days prior. The doctor check my blood work and my hcg level went from over 74000 to 0. She said i FOR SURE had a miscarriage. She never did an ultrasound or anything b/c she trusted in the hcg levels. She told me i didnt need a follow up or a D&C because there was nothing left. This is where my story gets crazy.. 2 months later i was relaxing in bed and felt kicking! I thought it might be gas or something but i took a pregnancy test because i was a little freaked out. The test came back positive! And the doctor was right about my miscarriage! My original ultrasound didnt reveal a TWIN. So there i was almost 6 months pregnant, having survived a breakdown after the miscarriage and doing things you shouldnt when your pregnant, smoking cigs, drinking, ect :/ But i am glad to say despite the drama I have a beautiful and healthy baby boy. I please implore anyone to always follow up with you doctor if you dont feel like your diagnosis wasn't right. Doctors arent always completely right. And i will tell you this doctor is no longer in practice because of such a big mistake.
