Leaving here for a while... Final Outcome on Page 12


I know it's typical to feel upset, but I never could have prepared myself for this kind of pain. Last week, I got an ultrasound. I thought I was 7w1d. I was measuring at 6w1d and the tech could only see the gestational and yolk sac. They said that because of my tilted uterus, they could've had trouble finding the baby. They had me come back again this week and even though my sac had grown appropriately and was measuring 7 weeks, there was still no embryo.

I have not had any spotting or cramping. After my appointment, I went to see my dr. who told me that I had a blighted ovum. They said that development stopped around 5.5 weeks, since the fetal pole never formed. She told me the sac usually passes between 1-3 weeks after the development stops. I am now supposed to be 8w1d, so I'm guessing it could be any day now.

Does anyone have any advice? I've never been through this and I have no idea what to expect. I feel so scared and alone.

Thank you, I'm just shocked. I thought for sure if something was wrong that I would have symptoms by now. Instead my body is just acting like it's still pregnant.

Oh I am so sorry I had a blighted ovum in January with my first pregnancy and to say the least it was very heartbreaking. It took me months to feel even a little better again.It is hard and right now you wont believe it but it does get better with time.Every time someone told me that I would get so upset but I promise it will.I am now 11 weeks pregnant and everything is good.The doctors told me a blighted ovum means something had to be wrong chromosomal with the baby and that it doesnt form because it will not survive.With mine my body would not miscarry the baby and I first tried the pill they give you to get your body to contract it out but it didnt work.I ended up having to have a D&C and honestly I wish I would have done that from the start because it would have given me closure a whole lot sooner than the wait I went through.Take time to heal from this and Im sure the next time will be different.I will be thinking about you,my heart really hurts for you.

I am nervous that my body has no plans of miscarrying the baby. It stopped growing 2.5 weeks ago and I haven't had any spotting or cramping. I really don't want a D&C. I have heard too many stories about people with a tilted uterus not seeing a baby until 10-12 weeks and even though I'm not holding onto that hope, I never want to think "what if."

Well if you have any doubt I would wait because I have heard so many times of people being misdiagnosed with blighted ovums!For me I was spotting and the sac had started to cave in so I knew I was for sure but if you go to the website misdiagnosedmiscarriages.com it has stories of women who have went through that and they found a baby at the last minute!So if you feel like waiting to see if your body will do it on its own or if there may be a baby in there I dont think it would hurt.Just be sure to ask the doctor about setting up infection because that can be very dangerous.I will say a prayer for you and maybe this is all just a little scare!There is nothin wrong with a little hope!

have you read the blighted ovum one on here?the woman just found out that she was misdiagnosed!

I am not trying to give you false hope, but sometimes doctors can be wrong...I think you should see this website
