User :   hello docter. my name and im having a very traumatic day. I first went to EPU as I had abdominal pain i was told i was pregnant but very early stages (15oct 1010) i conceived on 2/10/10. hcg level was very low (239)and was told to come back on 25/10 as u/s showed nothing. 2nd scan on 25/10 showed i was 6weeks and 1 day (how can that be?) gest sac was 11.9mm yolk sac 3.1mm they could not detect anything else and i was told to come back on the 9/11/10. 3rd scan on 9th nov showed gest sac 24.5mm yolk sac 3.1mm and crl 7.5mm but no fetal HB detected.the registrar stated that for my size 7.5mm there should be a heartbeat and this was probably a misscarriage however they would scan me in 10 days (today 19/11/10) 4th scan today showed crl to be 8mm , gest sac 44x7x24mm and no FHB detected and i was told i had had a missed abortion.
im really sad and confused as a part of me is saying maybe they are wrong maybe just maybe they have it all wrong, as i pointed out to the registrar that i had conceived on 2/10 so today 19/11 i should be 8 weeks 1 day. they have scheduled me for surgical suction evacuation for 22/11. i need help as ive read so many stories from other women that hosp can get things wrong and some refused to believe and had healthy babies.... please can you help ?
Doctor :   HI,

Doctor :   Let me read your query for few minutes to be able to have a good discussion here.
User :   ok
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   i understand your situation
Doctor :   i would advice you to get a scan from an other gynecologist or a good radiologist where the reporting will be accurate
User :   what do u think in ur professional opinion? have u heard of cases like tghis that can be wrong
Doctor :   and if its confirmed again that there is no fetal heartbeat then its a must to get evacuated
Doctor :   yes, i have seen ,
Doctor :   i sould not point at the doctors who scanned you now , but its a fair chance where a scan can be misinterpreted
User :   for the stats above is it likely to be wrong?
Doctor :   so its just for check
Doctor :   no, i cannot comment on it. As there is very minimal information and i have not witnessed the scan
User :   i was told by the registrar that at 8mm the fetas has only grown 5mm in 9 days
Doctor :   do not get confused and taken away by the measurements, those readings depend on various other factors , hence go for a new scan better by a experienced radiologist
User :   ok thank you dr will feed back once i know more.
Doctor :   yes,
Doctor :   Is there anything i can help you with ?
User :   no thats it for now.
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me
