I am new to all this and just as I started to get the knack of it (checking out the first trimester forums, I am at about 9 weeks) I found out the horrible news today, after my second u/s, that I have a blighted ovum. The shock is wearing off, there has been much going on in the last couple weeks that prepared me for the news, but still so incredibly heart broken. This pregnancy (my third) came very unexpectedly, but very much welcomed. We now realize how much it means to us to have another child (our two boys are 8 and 10). I know the next few days will be gut-wrenching, but as soon as we can, we will try again.
