For a young family, the expectation of another child can be a happy experience.

When circumstances don’t turn out as expected, it can be devastating.

This was the case for Imgur user Otisdriftwood. Upon learning of his wife’s pregnancy, he was elated.

Instead of being a family of three, they were going to become a family of four.

Early in the pregnancy, his wife started to get very ill. The symptoms she experienced were different from the ones of her first pregnancy.

When they went in for their 11-week ultrasound, they received crushing news. Based on the ultrasound, it was revealed that not only was there no fetus, but there was a tumor. It was a molar pregnancy.

According to the Mayo Clinic, a molar pregnancy is a non-cancerous tumor that develops in the uterus. Once an egg is fertilized, the placenta develops into an abnormal mass of cysts.

It was imperative that his wife immediately undergo a DNC or “dilation and curettage.”  This procedure would remove the tumor. Doctors also had to be prepared to perform a hysterectomy, should it be needed.

The story does have a happy ending, though, which is that the DNC operation in this case was successful and the patient is fine.

Still, the horror of knowing that what one expected would be a child was…something else is enough to keep you up at night.
