Absolutely furious!(19 Posts)
As some of you may know I've been going back and forth to the Dr's. Pregnancy tests were negative, bloods were negative but I was still insisting I was pregnant so the Dr sent me for a scan almost 2 weeks ago. The sonographer told me there was definitely no pregnancy. A little disheartened but something niggled at the back of mind that she was wrong. 2 days later I get a call from the Dr's office asking me to go see the Dr about my scan results. I was in no rush and went yesterday. About a week and a half later. So the Dr tells me there's a water sac! Another pregnancy test and guess what I AM PREGNANT. I'm not about 6 weeks meaning I DID fall pregnant on the implant! So after 4 weeks of feeling pregnant and insisting I was despite tests and beginning to look slightly crazy I was right all along!!
Congratulations! Let go of the anger, though, no test is 100% reliable.
Firstly congratulations, but also why furious? The bloods and scan were incorrect but the medical staff were responding to those. Hope all goes well for the next 9 months
Are you not pleased to be pregnant?
I'm no expert but I do believe in v early pregnancy you can get false negatives.
Don't waste your time being furious!
Assuming you want to be pregnant, that's great news.
If you don't want to be pregnant, there's time to make choices.
Either way, don't be furious. It's not good for you. The manufacturers of the pregnancy tests didn't set out to trick you; your initial scan would have been at 4 weeks (so 2 weeks post conception, around about the time of implant) and incredibly difficult to identify.
If you were 20+ weeks and they kept missing it, id understand, but you were in the very very early stages of pregnancy - its sometimes hard to be definite about these things so early on.
I too fell pregnant on the implant. It happens very rarely so you'll find doctors are reluctant to consider it as an option so that may be why it took so long for them to find out, they weren't expecting to find anything.
I fell pregnant the first month my implant was in, and when I went to the doctor to have it removed she insisted I must have been pregnant when she put it in. I wasn't, but she wouldn't accept this at all.
Congratulations, my implant baby is now three and a half and along with his brother and sister is the light of my life.
Oh no I'm happy I'm pregnant. More annoyed with the fact that towards getting to the end of it the Dr was starting to treat me as if I was imagining it! I'd had the implant in for just over 2 years. I had positive tests but all early tests and the Dr's were getting negative tests and bloods. So she sent me for a scan to put my mind to rest despite me saying I was pregnant and I knew I was. Then for the sonographer to tell me there was definitely no pregnancy I was a little upset and thought maybe I am imagining it but I still couldn't shift the feeling. Then to go the Dr's two weeks later to be told I am pregnant. I'm more furious not with being pregnant, for that I'm more than happy. But to be treated as if I don't know my own body, I've had two kids I know what being pregnant feels like. With the bloods being negative the Dr said I'm probably not and had no explanation for why I'm getting positive tests.... And to send me for a scan to put my mind to rest!
Despite the multiple positive tests I had and showed the Dr. She was more adament that I hadnt fell pregnant on the implant. I am now 2 months late. And continuously saying I was pregnant she was doing all these tests to put my mind to rest. If I hadn't insisted on tests they wouldn't have been done. I'd have been sent on my merry way with "you have the implant your not pregnant" I know it's only very early and maybe I have no right to be furious but I have a right to feel something towards these people for trying to tell me I'm imagining it all!!
Oh, OP - relax and get over yourself!
No harm done, happy ending, what's the problem?
Do you have any idea how tiny an embryo would be at the stage you had your scan? People make mistakes - no big deal.
Hey OP I'd be peed off too. You've been through a lot emotionally. Take no notice of any negative comments, nobody knows what you've been going through. At least you now know that you "Are" pregnant, and your happy which is good, now look after yourself n ur baby. Chins up.
Thanks jodie. It has been very emotional, your right. It's all that played on my mind as I wasn't sure where I stood. I mean I know it's early. I get that but then to be told I'm not pregnant by one person and I am from another. I was in no rush to make the appointment so I left it a while. I didn't need to know I was pregnant because I'm not happy about it. I'm so happy. We get to welcome a new baby and our family grows. But the emotion it's caused, not just me but my husband as well. But I do get its early and that mistakes can be made etc... But no matter how much I insisted, because I had the implant it was possible. Obviously it was. It wasn't a shock when the Dr confirmed it. More of relief, after all this time, I say all this time it's been about 7 weeks but it's dragged and dragged!
I'd be furious too OP.
Congratulations though and best of luck for the pregnancy.
Jeez lighten up! Where is the joy in being angry?? It's not your GP's fault that your body is a bit weird. Sorry but it is. So your body didn't go down the traditional "I am pregnant" route. Big deal! Enjoy your pregnancy!
The dates don't seem to add up in your post. If you're 6 weeks pregnant it's only actually 4 weeks since conception
If you are 6 weeks now and had a scan two weeks ago you would have been just two weeks past conception.
Which means the embryo would probably have only just implanted so its no surprise the pregnancy wasn't detected.
To be fair the doctors where only telling you what was showing on there tests, and I really do think it was good of the doctor to send you for a scan considering a test and bloodwork said negative, I know my doctor certainly wouldnt have done.
I know it has probably been an emotional rollercoaster for you, but id just let go of your anger towards the gp etc, as they where only telling you what was showing at the time. You know for sure now though. Congratulations
