Good morning, I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum on July 8, 2016. I was 7 weeks at the time. I had an ultrasound and Dr. said there was no embryo. She also mentioned that I have a tilted uterus but that should not have made a difference. LMP was June 18th but my cycle is 35 days. I am 40 years old and got pregnant right away.
The first couple of weeks after I missed AF, I felt very tired and had very sore b--bs, mostly at night. I have had no cramping and no bleeding at all. No spotting either. My sore b--bs come and go. They do however hurt at night. I was very tired and now that has subsided. Again, no cramps, no spotting, no bleeding. I feel bloated and that's about it.
My doctor said that my blood level was 23,000 and went up to 29,000 which is not what she expected for a viable pregnancy at 7 weeks
I had never even heard of a blighted ovum!
I am sad and these past few weeks have been so stressful and so emotionally draining. I will go to the doctor on the 22nd in the morning for an ultrasound and if there is no baby, the D & C procedure will follow later on the same day.
I hope they find my baby and I hope that it was a misdiagnosis. If not, I believe that God has a different plan for me.
I pray that the rest of you have a healthy pregnancy! Best of luck to you
