kerrie - April 7

I started spotting just over 2 weeks ago and phoned the doctor who made me an appointment the following day for an ultrasound, when i got there they said they could only see a sac but no fetus then they said that they wanted to do another scan in 2 weeks to see if my sac had grown as it was not the size it should be of someone 9 weks pregnant, i said that i was only 6 weeks pregnant as i no the date i conceived they said my dates were wrong and there's were right my sac measured 15mm. I went back for my second scan today to be told that i had miscarried when she done the scan she done it very quickly and did not zoom in but the scan looked ok to me, she then sent me over to the doctor to discuss my options and the doctor said that my sac had grown and now measured 20mm but i should be 12 weeks pregnant by there dates but i no that i am only 8 weeks but they are not listening, i refused to have a dnc does anyone think i have a blighted ovum or not this is my first pregnancy so not to sure what should be seen at 8 weeks???? please help

Stick to your instincts! You know your body better than any doctor or machine. I know it's hard to say wait and be patient. But at this point, that is all you can do. I know, I have been going on a rollercoaster too lately! If you need to get another opinion, definately before having a d&C. God Bless

If you are 8 weeks, the fetus heartbeat should be detectable and the fetal ma__s should be clearly visible on abdominal ultrasound. If the spotting continues, have another ultrasound to clarify matters. I had blighted ovum once and the sac was actually smaller than it should have been.
