Imgur user Otisdriftwood posted some news on the social media site about his family. His wife took a pregnancy test. It was positive and they were excited about having a second child.
Unlike during her first pregnancy, his wife was very sick. At 11 weeks, they finally had an ultrasound, but the news was not good. Instead of there being a baby, Otisdriftwood reports that it looked like there were a
“bunch of grapes.”
Instead of a baby, the doctor found a tumor that caused a molar pregnancy. A molar pregnancy occurs when there is abnormal tissue in the uterus that causes pregnancy symptoms.
The couple prepared for a full hysterectomy, but fortunately, the surgeon was able to get the tumor without removing her uterus.
Although he was disappointed not to have another baby, the father kept a positive spin on it by being grateful to have his wife and son.
Another couple were struggling with a similar situation. Lilia and Miguel know a lot about molar pregnancies. Lilia has had 5 of them while trying to conceive for 14 years. The couple have been longing to be parents for almost a decade and a half and kept running into this obstacle. But, they got a surprise of a lifetime on The Doctors. Check out the video below.
