Oh damn. Yeah, I'd be super pissed. Glad she didn't take those pills!
She was eight weeks along when they told her.
It would be hard to make that decision because of infection that could be caused IF the baby had died. It is a TUFF decision I am sure, I am just glad that she decided to hold off.
Thanks for sharring BabyHardiman, I hope this will give other ladies in her situation the courage to hold out. Dr.s, DO make mistakes and some are life changing.
Yes, you are right, especially that early in pregnancy.
This happens a LOT! That's why it is important for people to get a second opinion.
yea, my mother in law was telling me when she had my brother in law the whole time the doc told her she had lost it. she wouldnt let them do nothing, she was bleeding bad and passing tissue and all. doc told her everytime she seen her to let him take it. he was suppose to be dead. he turned out fine and the only thing she could think of was it was a twin she was having the m/c with. if she would have done what the doc wanted he wouldnt be here now
wow! Thats why I think that if a doctor tells a woman she is miscarrying that she should wait it out, cause so many dr's are so quick to schedule a D&C.
That is unless they know theres a SEVERE genetic problem. and I'm not talking about skin disorders, or cerebral palsey or stuff like that.
I know I'd wait. (i'm 9 1/2 weeks)
It makes me think about ALL those women who come on here and the Maternal forum and ask about hearbeats not being detected at their first u/s. When it could just be that they o'd late!
You are right Cindie there are ALOT of Dr's who are too quick to want to do D&C.
thats so true. read this site if yall wanna see more misdiagnosed m/c
oh my gosh..that is horrible.. that is why women should not be so quick to listen to the doc's like you all said.. let nature take it's course.. what is meant to be will happen...
on my 3rd preg doc told me my triple test came back positive.. wanted me to do an amniocentesis.. i told him right away.. no thank you.. those things are wrong sometimes and you know what.. i don't care if something is "wrong" with my baby... there may be a reason for it that i am just not aware of ... and i would love it NO MATTER WHAT! =)
PS... my baby was born 7 lbs 3 oz.. PERFECT little baby girl!
martikadragoon, you're totally right! I try to let women know they should wait it out and not elect a D&C. Always tell them to get a followup ultrasound in 2 weeks or more if no miscarrying happens. Usually it turns out the baby is fine!!!
My ex boyfriends mom actually had this happen to her! She was told that the baby had no brain and she would not be able to keep her much longer! They gave her a decision to abort, allow the baby to die inside her and then go through labor there was a 0% chance this baby would make it. She and her husband thought about it and decided to go through with having the baby now rather than later so they put her into labor. When the baby was born she was perfectly healthy but died shortly after because she did not have fully developed lungs.
Judy, she is one of the most precious babies I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!! I have to bookmark it and look at it more intently later because it is making DH's game lag.
that happen to my grandmother about 50 years ago or so. she went to the dr and he thought it was in her tubes . gave her a shot to abort. another dr she saw later that day said the baby was fine but it was too late. she had 12 kids 3 miscarriages .
what happened to the post, it is gone now, grrrrrrrrrr
i noticed that to, so weird???!!!
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... wasn't me!
it happened again, so I guess it was including the website? How retarded
OMG!!! I would be sooo devastated!! How far along was she?
Your story brought tears to my eyes :(
Congrats on your beautiful lil girl! I think those tests are just totally WRONG to perform on a developing baby.. to determine if you want to abort or not. Our blood tests came back fine, but I told my Fiance' that I would NOT have the amnio even if the doctor recommended it. I would NEVER consider aborting my baby... anyone who wants to call me selfish may do so, that is their opinion.
I wanted to share this story with my sister, but I didn't have the heart. She just went through an induced miscarriage without a second opinion. I should have pushed her to wait.
Ya know this situation here is why I'm against aborting a child even if tests show severe abnormalities. Tests can be WRONG. I would much rather hold out and let God's plan unfold naturally...the way he intends it. There are no certainties even with so called science. Way too many mistakes are made.
