You're the doctor, right?

Two positive pregnancy tests, three doctor's visits, hundreds of prenatal vitamins, one healthy ultrasound, dozens of healthy meals, and countless dreams for the future.

One terrible ultrasound, hours of pain, days of bleeding, and one crazy ER visit.  In the midst of the madness a new ER doctor walks in. "Are you sure you were pregnant?"


  1. this kind of thing has not happened to me, but i've heard so many other people's stories of completely inept and insensitive caregivers. why do they not have the sense to read a chart before they walk in, and WHY do they assume that every patient is stupid and uneducated?

  2. I just found your site and have been up all night reading! I just had my second miscarriage in less than 4 months.

    With my first miscarriage, I labored and delivered my 12 week baby at home into a bowl. I then hemorrhaged severely. We called 911 and when the paramedics got there, They asked "are you really sure you had a miscarriage?". I had to say "yes... The baby's in the fridge if you need proof."
