Blighted ovum stories?


Hi all, am currently waiting to mc third time, this one's a blighted ovum, just wanted to hear other's stories about BO. Mine started out well, hcg's doubled at first tho they were on the low side, then stopped doubling but always went up, at 6w5d they were finally 6820. But, starting at 5w5d the u/s showed no fetal pole or yolk sac, a week later there was a yolk sac, this week everything's grown but still no embryo. Doc said another u/s next tuesday with d&c after if it's the same. But last night I started lightly spotting and have some pressure, cramping going on. I'd like to pass naturally, and am hoping it won't take too long now that there's spotting.
Question- has anyone had testing done on a blighted ovum? It seems to me it would be difficult to test as there's no embryo, any experience with this, anyone??

Hiya my 1st m/c was a blighted ovum in Dec 10. I started with spotting at 5 1/2 weeks scan showed no pole etc just a sac. After many weeks of scans blood tests (HCG was very high - over 10,000) I showed no sign of passing it naturally so had medical management at 9 weeks. I was offered no testing because as you say I don't think there is anything to test. Sorry to here you are going through this. I am also m/cing for the 3rd time so if you want to chat get in touch at any time xxx

I am gussing my MC was a blighted ovum, my Dr. just called it an "abnormal pregnancy". I got my BFP at 10 dpo, nine days later I started spotting. I went in for a blood test and my HCG levels were at 1400 and my progesterone was at 6.8. I went on progesterone supplements. I went in 2 days later and my HCG only rose to 2100 (so increasing, but only about 50% every 2 days). I ended up spotting for about 6 days. I went in at 7 weeks for an U/S. They did both an abdominal and a vaginal U/S and only saw an empty gestational sac, no yolk sac, no fetal pole. I went in for repeat blood tests and my HCG was now over 20,000. I ended up having a D&C. I wasn't offered any testing other than the typical pathology tests they do. Good Luck.

RE:Currently waiting to miscarriage with blighted ovum


Hi Guys,
Im new on here and am currently suffering my second consecutive miscarriage. I had one in May 2011 at 17 weeks but baby was on 12w4d and appears to have died after my perfect nuchal translucency scan. I conceived within 2 months and had it confirmed on 9th sept 11 that I have a blighted ovum am 9w2d pregnancy sac. Just wondering when I should expect to miscarry as I want to do it naturally? Any advice would be helpful. x

Thanx for responding and for your stories! Makeawishx, so sorry you're going thru this too...
Update on me- spotting for 3 days with cramps and finally at 4am I had terrible cramps and passed some clots/blood (sorry if tmi), now I have a low grade fever, diarrhea and just feel weak and icky. I can't imagine that the little bit I passed was everything, I'm 7 weeks so thought there'd be more. I hate to think I have to sit at home for days, waiting for it all to happen...the unknown is truly the worst thing...

You'll find the few clots was probably the majority of it and the rest will dissolve as blood.
I've had a Bo and it passed easily, just like a period
I got through it knowing no life was taken, just a tiny sac
I conceived again not long after and carried right through
Best of luck x

i had a blightum ovum when i thought i was 8 weeks 5 days, but on the scan it was 5 weeks 1 day. i had a yolk sac, but no fetal pool. i went back a week later and i measured at 5 weeks 2 days which summed it up for me. i had a d&c the next day. that one week wait was torture for me, i was told i would miscarry but i never did. i still felt pregnant as ever with cravings and nausea knowing that my baby never developed and i couldnt stand the though of waiting to bleed at home. thats why i choose D&C.
(((hugs)))

I think the waiting for the unknown was the worst part for me. I just wanted it to be over. Still feeling pregnant with all those hormones was strange. I finally had to have a D&C three weeks later. It's been 5 days since the D&C and I just started to bleed and feel very nausious and dizzy. The doctor says this is normal. I'm tired of feeling crappy and just want to feel better again.

RE: Blighted ovum


Hi Bellamamma, Its the waiting that drives me mad!! Had 4 weeks of scans before it was confirmed. No signs of anything happening yet. I'm back in 10 days (11 wks) to assess whats happened to date and may be given tablets to get things started as I dont want a D&C. Im feeling really tired, my breasts still hurt like mad, feel bit sick and totally bewildered. I had to deliver my dead baby boy in May this year (still miss him terribly) and now this, I've been pregnant most of the year and nothing to show for it. Luckily I already have kids or I would be a lot worse. Hopefully you don't have to wait too long, are you planning to try again soon?
