Dont worry im not getting my hopes up, i know there is no baby but i was just wondering if anyones symptoms got worse after being diagnosed with a blighted ovum, i am waiting to pass it naturally on my own but im starting to think thats going to take a while, on the 28th jan my hcg levels were 4006 and last friday they had increased to 11400 where i was diagnosed with blighted ovum, then over the weekend my morning sickness has gotten much worse which i presume means my levels have risen and not fallen, i know this is common but im wondering if it will last for long? Im gonna call my gp in the morning and see if she will do bloods later in the week and if my levels have risen again i think i will opt for a d&c this week.
I had a blighted ovum, too, and my morning sickness ramped up dramatically from 5 or 6 weeks to 8 weeks and 3 days. Of course, I didn't then know that it was a blighted ovum or I would have had a D&C, too. I was so sick at 8 weeks! I could barely move from the nausea.
Anyway, my symptoms dropped off abruptly at 8 and 3, and that's how I knew something was up.
If you're suffering, I think the D&C is a good choice. I hope you can find somewhere to do it where they are sweeter and gentler than last time! Ask for anesthesia and pain meds.
no it has to be the same place there is nowhere else, but i think im going to go in on friday, I dont normally get much morning sickness so its quite strange, with my last pregnancy i had none at all! x x
I totally understand. I felt the exact same way. Just remember that it goes right almost all the time. Very low rate of problems for this. The odds are heavily in your favor!
And if you're just too scared of the slim chance, why not try medical management? It'll make the cramping worse, but you might not even have to have a D&C or any of the very small change of problems that comes with it.
Really? That's so strange! I'm sorry you don't have as many options. Are they worried about side effects or something? I heard it was a very safe thing to do, just that it might not make a complete miscarriage, so you might have to have the D&C anyway.
Ugh. Totally illegal, but I could send you my pills! I never used them. I chickened out.
i think its probably cos there is no abortion here in ireland so they wouldnt have the pills, thanks for the offer but even if i did want to take the chance they would probably be confiscated at customs! lol! i will just go on friday, i just hate the thought of going back to the epu and having to go through the same process again, it takes all day, first you have to come in at 8.30 and have blood work done, then you have a scan after 9.15, then they tell you to come back at 2 for your blood results and then a couple of hours after that they take you down to theatre, and my hubby cant come with me cos of our kids so i will be there all day on my own bored stiff. The hospital is over 40mins away so its a bit of a nightmare but im sure once saturday comes i will glad i went through with it!
Man! That's harsh. The drug's also used for preventing bleeding in the stomach and all sorts of other crazy things. I wonder if you could get it for those things, or if it's an all-or-nothing deal. Very interesting stuff.
But thank you for refusing my offer. I guess that illegal drug trafficking over international boundaries isn't the smartest thing when you've advertised it on a public forum!
