‘I heard the devastating words, ‘There’s nothing there.’ There was no heartbeat anymore.’: Woman urges ‘second opinion’ after ultrasound mistake

“My body still felt pregnant even though I had already been bleeding, and I just felt weird. I decided to call my good friend who works at another OBGYN. The next day they told me I needed to come in right away for an ultrasound because my pregnancy levels came back at 30,000. They didn’t know if there was a twin, a pregnancy located somewhere else, or what it was.”

‘I thought I was ‘exempt’ from PCOS. We picked out baby names, even backup names! The weight gain, the moodiness? This was it! I was pregnant! Oh, how wrong I was.’ Woman with PCOS embarks on emotional infertility journey

“It’s funny how you spend most of your life doing everything in your power to NOT get pregnant. Then you get older, get married, and some have to do everything in your power TO get pregnant. We sat there, listening to every word my doc said, but all I heard was, ‘You can’t have a baby.’ We’d have to pay $17,000. I immediately felt all the blood drain from my body. $433 a MONTH for a child we didn’t even know if we were going to get.”
