‘There was a gestational sac but there was nothing inside and to me, that was really sad, because that had formed, but there was nothing there, that was losing our baby.’
No miscarriages were experienced by Velez but felt as if babies were inside and experienced signs and symptoms of pregnancy. The second ultrasound revealed other material in there; Velez says
She was then diagnosed with choriocarcinoma by an oncologist; a cancer doctor.
