4 yrs ago when I was pregnant with my first child, I saw an OB doc, that both I and my mother had worked with and knew very well. About 14 weeks into my pregnancy, I started bleeding heavily and went into the office to see him. He did an ultrasound, and told me that I have had a partial spontaneous abortion and needed a D & C immediately. I disagreed to do it as emergency, but scheduled it for a couple days later b/c I felt that something wasn't right. I went home, made an appointment with another doctor for the following day. On that appointment, I had yet another US, and guess what....I hadn't miscarried at all...My son had a heartbeat!!! I was mortified that I could have aborted my son, so I made an appointment to speak with the doctor who had misdiagnosed me. We talked it over, there were no hard feelings, and I felt much better after letting him know how disappointed I was. He offered me free services, I did not accept, telling him I just didn't feel that I could trust him as my MD any longer, but I thanked him for all he had done. Now, it is awkward to run into him in the hospital....but, I felt that was the right thing to do.
