blighted ovum? yeah right

Postby miraclebab3 » Sat Jul 11, 2009 11:01 pm

i went to the dr's when i was 6 weeks and they said they saw no fetal pole and no yolk sac, and that i should get another sonogram when i was seven weeks to confirm. they said that it was a very likely chance that i had a blighted ovum. i was so scared but i found this website and decided to wait until i was at least 9 weeks to get my second ultrasound, and make any decisions. when i went to get the sonogram i drunk 1 liter of water, and they found the baby and the heartbeat was strong.
if you have no cramping and no bleeding i say wait it out, your body will exspell it naturally, and they wanted me to get a dnc n i refused. now im 10 weeks and 2 days. thanks to this website for giving me hope, and i will be praying for those of you that are experiencing this. hope my story reaches and touches you :) any questions email me keep u n my prayers

Thank you for sharing your story. I just wish they wouldn't even suggest blighted ovum until nine weeks or so. Why put women through that worry unnecessarily?

Congrats to you and thanks again for sharing!

If you are being diagnosed with a blighted ovum after IVF, please take a look at this article I put together: Misdiagnosed Miscarriage After IVF
and why I just believe a blighted ovum should NOT be diagnosed before nine weeks at the earliest and the UK's new guidelines support this
