Emotional roller coaster, possible blighted ovum

Postby petraangelic » Mon Sep 13, 2010 5:42 pm

I went to the doc about three weeks ago, thinking I was around eight weeks pregnant, with mild spotting and cramping. A vaginal ultra sound was performed and the doc told me he could see a yolk sack, but no baby inside. He said that either my due date was miscalculated, or that I would miscarry soon. He told me to go back a week later to see if there was any progress, but gave little hope.

Last Tuesday, I went and had another u/s to see that there was, indeed a baby this time, but no heartbeat. The doc said again, that either my due date was miscalculated or that I would miscarry.

I am waiting until Friday to go back again and see if there is a heartbeat. I have absolutely no idea how far along I am at this point or even if my baby is alive. Minutes seem like hours and days seem like weeks. I am trying to remain faithful.

I was told at age 18 that it would be highly unlikely for me to have children since I have PCOS. I have a wonderful nine year old son and consider him my miracle. I hope God gives me a second miracle, too.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation, Petra. I feel for you completely. The waiting game is SO emotionally draining, and it's hard to keep your chin up when your body and doctors are telling you otherwise. I certainly hope that things do work out for you. As I mentioned in a previous post, God works in very mysterious ways. There's no telling what plans He has in store for anyone. The only thing I can suggest is to keep the faith, think positively and try to distract your mind if possible.

Good luck and God bless.

Thanks so much for the kind words. The news was unfortunately bad. There was no growth and no heartbeat again when I went back yesterday. So now I wait to miscarry. This is probably the hardest thing I have ever experienced. I know I will get through it, as so many women do. I am trying to remain faithful. Thanks again :)
