Hope For Pregnant Women With

This is our story.

Miracle PregnancyMiracle of miracles, we are pregnant with a post reversal miracle baby. We found out early, when I was just 2 weeks pregnant. Joy turned to sorrow at 7 1/2 weeks, on Sept 5, 2007, at our first ultrasound, 3d vr glasses as our precious baby was deemed a "blighted ovum" as the images flashed across the 3D/4D ultrasound machine. The ultrasound tech and our physician agreed, there is no heartbeat, there is no fetal pole, there is no yolk sac, therefore there is no baby. Hope came crashing down, we were given a clear death sentence with absolutely no hope, from our OB.

We were ushered back to his office and in a very kind and patient manner, he spelled out our options. We were told there would be no baby, but an impending miscarriage hovered in our future and we were given the option of scheduling a D C, taking a pill to end the pregnancy or letting nature take its course. Emotions swirled through our minds and I immediately began shutting down, but I tried to hold on, and the best I could do was jot down notes. I had a large, irregularly shaped gestational sac, but it was not rounded like they liked. There was no definite baby. No fetal pole. No heartbeat. No yolk sac. That meant no baby to our OB. As the death bell sounded from his lips, he seemed as devastated for us as we were. He went over our options several times all were about termination. He said there was no hope, that he would say the same thing to his wife. We talked about Job in the time of adversity. He kept telling us there was no hope, that he had never seen a blighted ovum live, that there was not a chance. Our precious baby was gone.

Why? Probably a chromosomal anomaly. It can be because of a problem with the egg, or the sperm. Something happens after conception and the cells don't form properly.

He kept talking about women who opted for the D so they would not have to deal with the waiting. If I chose to let nature take it's course, I could possible wait weeks. He said most women decided to end it within 2 weeks, as they could not handle the uncertainty much longer than that.

In a daze, I asked if a D was surgery. One of my goals in life is to get through it without surgery. Our OB assured us that a D is a minor surgery, I would be put to sleep, the procedure done and I would be fine soon after. Grief surrounded all of it like a cocoon. I wanted out of the office, away from the man so kindly talking about a D and closure. Didn't he get it? It is our post sterilization reversal miracle baby how could he keep implying that our miracle baby is dead?
