Don't Give Up Hope

Postby kelsey177 » Tue May 27, 2008 3:52 pm

Hi ladies, I just wanted to share my story with everyone. One week ago I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum. My doctor said she was just not seeing what she needed to see. I was supposed to be 6 1/2 weeks at the time. A week later I went back, and she saw the fetus as well as the heartbeat. I also have a tilted uterus, which I know can make things more difficult to see. My point here though is that every pregnancy is different. You might have ovulated later than you originally thought, so you may not see the baby right away. I know the waiting can be the worst part, especially if your doctor is not optimistic. Just don't ever give up hope.

Thank you for your post. I was also about 6 1/2 weeks when i went in a little over a week ago. We saw a gestational sac w/ 2 yolk sacs, and no babies! She said possibly blighted ovum :( I go back next week for a FU and Im praying we'll see something also:) Thanks for the positive story :) Congrats!

Congratulations to you.

Yes, sometimes women ovulate later but another concern we've stumbled across here...the first trimester vaginal ultrasound really is not very accurate in many women. Doctors need to just stop scaring women.

I'm so glad you found your little one :)

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
