    I had one and was so shocked when i found out at mt 1st scan at 12 weeks.

    I thought the same was happening with this one alos. All i can say is take ur time and dont be rushed into anything. It took me 5 scans b4 anything was seen in the sac and then they out me 2 weeks back so i was 7 weeks b4 anything was seen. Then i had more scans due to bleeding and guess what they put me 1 weeks forward. That means that i was 8 weeks b4 anything was seen. Lots of people see more than an empty sac say at 5 weeks and mine was 100% empty until then. I did a lot of research about the size the empty sac needs to be to be called a blighted ovum and mine was bigger and still turned out ok. If the worst does happen Please please please dont let them take u to get a D&C b4 u feel the need to. Can i ask why u think it is a blighted ovum this time? Have u have a scan?

    hi porkpie.
    yeah that would be great if you could find that post, many thanks.
    when i had m/c in aug this year, i was 6 wks and had brown discharge, i went for an early scan at 6 wks and sac was there but empty, they never told me it was a blight ovum i found out by research on internet, i went home and that night the m/c started.

    i think im having the same think happen again as im 6 wks and afew days and ive had the same things happening, the brown discharge started again last tues, i rang dr and she got me in for an early scan for this wed coming at 10am, so il have to wait and see but i have a deep down feeling that when i have the scan the sac is going to be empty again, but i could be completly wrong and see heart beat....fingers crossed.
    but i dont really feel preg i never had really, no symptoms apart from tender nipples.

    p.s you say dont let them take you for a d and c before you feel the need to, do u mean dont go incase im am so early preg that the baby hasnt showed up in the sac yet, or are d and c not a good option?
    thanks for your help.

    INcase u are too early pregnant. I thought my dates where right and turns out i was either 1 or 2 weeks early than i thought. If i was only 1 week then by textbook rules my baby should have been seen at that stage. So it just shows that its not always textbook.
    I iddnt have bleeding last time, I went for a scan at 10 weeks and they told me the bad news then but i wnated to wait so had a few scans and decided to have a D & C at nearly 13 weeks (1 day off). I accepted it then as i seen the sac had collapsed in the scan so i knew it was time.

    This time ive had bleeding in the forms of spotting, mucus and really heavy (to the point i thought i had wet myself in the nite). I thought that was it over as surley after having no bleeding with the blighted ovum then this was bad news. Bleeding doesnt always mean that there is a problem with the baby but its so worring :hugs:
    Please dont take the sickness as a sign either as even after i was tols it was a blighted ovum i was sick every day until the day b4 the d & C. Some people domt get sickness or different amounts with each pregnnacy

    Maccy and me met on her after having a blighed ovum aarund the same time and it was good t know that some1 else had this as no1 seems to know much about it. I am away to look for that post (might take a while as it was a while ago)
