Hi, so I’m booked in for medical termination next week for MMC. I’ve uploaded my two scans, first one is 5 weeks 2 days, they said they saw fetal pole which I was shocked about and second is a week later with only a 1mm growth which they deemed as non viable. My HCG was drawn privately after this and it’s still doubling and I’m so confused. I know MMC are so hard because you have zero symptoms. I’ve had absolutely no bleeding, no cramping apart from after my first internal scan, nothing to indicate pregnancy loss. I’m just so confused, I’ve now mentally grieved my loss but still thinking what if there’s that 1% that they made a mistake.

There wasn’t a heartbeat but I was only just 6 weeks and if I’m honest I don’t think she was looking, she made the decision it wasn’t viable straight away. The only thing I think she may of got wrong was seeing the fetal pole at just 5 weeks, she even said I think that’s the fetal pole. I’m sure they’re right but I really don’t trust the EPU and they’ve rushed everything, had the scan and was told pregnancy isn’t viable not let me get another opinion. And within 15 minutes I was thrown loads of leaflets and told to leave and to book in a medical for next week, just left feeling really unanswered
