I understand that anger can make things just fly out!
I’m just so glad for you that things are okay and that you are on a good pregnancy track now.
It’s unfortunate that the tests were wrong, but at such an early part of the pregnancy it happens more easily. ER’s and docs in general see lots of early miscarriages, so their diagnosis was probably right on procedural standards.
I don’t think it’s a bad idea to write a formal letter to the hospital in regards to your experience. Perhaps that will help them to tweak their procedures in the future so that these kinds of misdiagnoses don’t occur.
Sending positive vibes and thoughts your way… again, CONGRATULATIONS!!! 🙂

If you were given a prescription to take, than that is certainly malpractice, as that medicine would have caused you to miscarry. I agree with the others that you shouldn’t sue, though, as no harm was done, BUT I would definitely send letters to the doctor and his boss and anybody else you can think of to let them know how you feel about all this. I’m sure you’ll feel better letting them know what happened! I’m so happy everything seems to be just fine now!! Yay!!!

At 6 weeks my doctor couldn’t see much of anything. By the sounds of what you were initially going through, I thought you had maybe experienced a chemical pregnancy because it all happened so quickly.
Hopefully everything will be okay from this point onward.

A complaint is one thing but a lawsuit is another. Filing an unjust malpractice lawsuit is sleezy any way you look at it. I have a family member who almost died because her surgeon screwed up. Could we have sued and probably won? Absolutely, but we didn’t bother because she pulled through and her doctor made a mistake (he was human, afterall). We filed a complaint and let the hospital deal with it.
I get that you’re upset but can you imagine how many women wish they were in your shoes? I’m sure every single Bee who has posted about her misscarriage wishes that they could trade places with you. It’s fine to be angry and I think you should file a complaint with the hospital just so that they know what happened but a lawsuit was taking it too far, imo.

I have been talking to ER admin via email. A complaint and investigation is taking place. Thank you for your input. Again, I was upset when I wrote that. I apologize for it. I work in healthcare so I do understand everything 🙂
