ON THURSDAY, I WAS TOLD BY A RESIDENT ER DOCTOR THAT I WAS MISCARRYING BECAUSE MY HCG LEVEL WAS 247 AT 4 WEEKS, AND THE BABY COULDNT BE FOUND ON THE ULTRASOUND. I WORK IN MEDICAL, SO I KNEW THIS WAS INCORRECT, SINCE I HAD NOT BEEN BLEEDING, JUST CRAMPING. I WENT ON SATURDAY AND GOT ANOTHER BLOODDRAW DONE. I GOT THE RESULTS TODAY. MY HCG HAD WENT FROM 247 TO 527 IN LESS THAN 48HOURS!!!! I GO TOMORROW TO GET MORE LAB WORK DONE. I PRAYED AND LEFT BABY GRAY IN GOD’S HANDS. I KNOW THAT MY BABY WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT!!!

I’m happy for you that your baby might be okay, but do you really need to file a lawsuit? Doctors are people too and they make mistakes. No harm was done in your case.

I’m glad you and the baby are ok but I agree with EngagedToPanda.
Please do not file a lawsuit. No one was hurt and lawsuits are a big reason why healthcare is so expensive. Please reconsider.

I don’t know….. if I am wrong………… but I don’t think you could see much at 4 weeks. Increased in lining and a mesoblast maybe has developed?
Why did the dr send you to do one?

I don’t know the whole story, but there isn’t much of a case if no harm was done to the mother or child…
But happy to hear the good news, OP! Thinking about you and your baby!

While I’m happy for you that things seem to be progressing normally with your pregnancy I agree with EngagedToPanda: and scadadle15:. As a patient you are entitled to a second opinion, but if the second opinion turns out to be correct and first incorrect that does not warrant filing a law suit against the first doctor. No harm was done, I suggest your invest positive energy in your pregnancy and let sleeping dogs lie.

I’m so happy your baby is still fighting.
I do agree with the other posters though. What will suing for malpractice actually do? The reason healthcare costs are so high is because of the ridiculous amount of malpractice insurance doctors have to carry since people are so “sue-happy”. It sounds like no real harm was done, so be happy that your baby is a fighter and let sleeping dogs lie.

For goodness sake. The very definition of a frivolous lawsuit.
So the first thing you saw when you got the amazing news that your baby was ok, were dollar signs? Thats sick.

I’m so happy for you! Here’s for a healthy continuing pregnancy! However, you really dont have any grounds for a lawsuit so please save yourself the stress and financial burden of not filing. He was a ER resident, not an OB or a specialist. File a complaint with the hospital, not an attorney.
