RE: Medical management of blighted ovum


Hi Bellamamma, Got the final dose sun at 4pm and all over by 8pm, passed two large bits of tissue and just gentle bleeding from then. The mc was ok but was dealing with a junior doc who had no compassion. She left me on the corridor for 6 hours on fri and then I was told over the phone by a senior doc that I would be gettin 200ug (cos I was concerned about high doses) and could take the further 600 if nothing happened at intervals. Went to the hospital junior doc just went on ahead and put in 800ug and told me the doc had said I had to have them, I was just too upset to even argue and let her do it. Horrible people!!! Hope it has no lasting affects had 200mg mifepristone and 800ug misepristol (think thats how u spell them).

Hey, Thanks for checking in, was thinking about you! yeah, docs are incredible, usually the juniors are better cuz they haven't got "hardened" yet, but like you, I had a bad one at the ED . I really don't think there are any lasting effects to those drugs, so try to heal up now and not worry about it! Easier said...
I had my follow up today with a new gynecologist, and wouldn't you just know it, she was 7 months pregnant!! Got through it ok though, and she was the sweetest I've encountered so far, have to get used to seeing the preggers everywhere and not let it get to me! Anyway, she said my uterus is cleaned out well, did a pap and is sending me for a mammogram since I've never had, plus she gave me a script for a recurrent miscarriage clinic. So we'll see how we get on. You, what follow up do you have to do?? How are you emotionally now? Sending big hugs

Hello ladies, I'm in the same boat as you. Just waiting for my 2nd miscarriage. The first happened naturally at 6.5 weeks and this one - found out at 8.5 weeks at scan showing sac, but no fetal pole and no baby. I've had a couple of random days of spotting (day after u/s and again 3 days later today) but only when wipe (sorry if tmi). My mum died a a month ago and we have a thanksgiving service for her on wednesday - if I haven't miscarried before, I'm supposed to go in for a scan on Thursday and if no improvement then D&C on Friday. What a terrible week. I'm 41 so I know chances of M/C are high but it doesn't make it any easier! Big hugs to all of you going through the same thing. xx

Hey beetle, sorry to hear you're going thru it as well . I had a few weeks of checking scans and hoping and it was really hard to get through, you have the additional pain for your mom. I mc'd naturally the day they wanted to do the D&C, thank goodness, didn't want another. I'm 43 so know how you feel. Big hugs.....

RE: Blighted ovum


Hello ladies, Feeling fine even did all my ironing, washing and washed my car. Going for final scan next monday to make sure all is gone! Seen doc today and he gave me script for progesterone and aspirin to take on my next positive test. Really hope you guys get your baby or babies then all this can be a bad memory. I already have 3 kids and it does help and hopefully gives you hope cos I had 3 miscarriages then carried a very healthy baby girl then then a healthy boy then had 2 more miscarriages. I had my first mc at 25, then 31, then 33 and now 39 so age isnt always an issue. Speak soon xx

I am so sorry to hear of your losses. It is a truly horrible experience being diagnosed with a blighted ovum. This is my 2nd miscarriage in a row. My 1st was a very early miscarriage and this one was a blighted ovum. I opted for medical management. D n c was too scary for me and I could not bear waiting for things to happen. Basically in my experience they gave me an oral tablet. Then 2 days later I was asked to come back in. They gave me 4 pessaries and a few hours later some oral tablets. About an hr after the tablets were given I started cramping. Shortly after that I went to the toilet and saw the miscarriage had started. It was sad but knew it had to be done. The cramps started getting more and more severe. I was passing a lot of large clots. I was then given some pain killers and more oral tablets. The pain killers didn't really work for me and the pain was excruciating. I was given extra pain killers but I vomited up everything. I had to get an injection of morphine in the end. But I'm so glad cos I was in so much pain. I've been thru labour and didn't request morphine, but I needed it for this. It chilled me right out and an hr later the sac was passed. Tmi but it looked like chewed up bread. The pain eased off after that. We were allowed home an hr later. We were advised to wait a month before ttc and that the bleeding may last 2 weeks. So far the bleeding has lasted 5 days but its been light. I hope our next pregnancy is healthy cos I can't bear this for a 3rd time. I feel a bit like Il never have a healthy pregnancy again but I'm still grieving just now. Does anyone else feel like they have been punished?

Makeawishx- I'm happy it's finally over and you're back to ironing (jk)! You sound better! Hope the aspirin and progesterone work for you next time!!

Xxmrs-txx - thanks and right back at you! And yes, I do go thru moments of feeling punished, or wondering what I've done to deserve this, it's hard to not as it's us and our bodies that are doing this! Sorry you had such a bad experience and pain, hope you heal physically asap and come to terms emotionally when you're ready. Do you have children? Will you have any testing done now? Hugs..

It seems like it's going off into never never land! But that is a good thing if it means people are moving on from losses. HOw you doing Make a wish??
