Stories of Women Who Turned Down a D&C due to Blighted Ovum and Found their Babies!
Today I want to share with you a few very important stories. Each of these stories can be found on the Misdiagnosed Miscarriage site. While not all of these were found at nine weeks or beyond, you can see that they were diagnosed too early. As I've said over and over, I love the new guidelines that state a doctor should wait until the gestational sac is 25mm and then wait one week more to verify. That would put women at about nine or so weeks which would prevent so many misdiagnosed miscarriages!
