At 7w1d pregnant, I woke up with a terrible feeling and all of the pregnancy symptoms gone. I went to the local Emergency Room department for an analysis. After a positive urine test, a closed cervix, and no sign of bleeding, the doctor decided to do blood work. He returned an hour later saying my HCG levels were less than one and that I had lost the baby. I was extremely distraught and hysterical. I spent to remainder of the weekend extremely ill. It got to the point where I had to page my doctor who said my symptoms sounded like food poisoning. On Monday, we went to my OB to discuss our options on the miscarriage only to discover a healthy baby. I have so much anger towards the ER doctor for not confirming his diagnosis with an ultrasound. Do I have any legal grounds to seek damages?
