my miracle at 7 wks 3 days-no blighted ovum here!!

Postby shannonrn » Sun Mar 14, 2010 4:51 pm

I just wanted to tell my story to give other women some hope. My LMP was Jan 12...+ HPT Feb 19...On feb 21 small amt of brown spotting... U/S on March 1 shows empty sac measuring 4 wks 4 days but by LMP should've been 6 wks 6 days. The doctor seemed to have very little hope as well as myself. The doctor discussed Cytotec if no change in a week because I really didn't want a D&C. I've been through this before 7 yrs ago with a blighted ovum. I immediately thought this is it, it's over. The next day I had my levels drawn and they were 9000...2 days later 18000...but I'm thinking they should've saw something with those levels. Meanwhile, horrible morning sickness kicks in. I still think it's a blighted ovum because your levels can go up so therefore you can be sick. My husband never lost hope. I thought he was crazy for having faith. I was supposed to return in 1 wk but decided I would wait for 2 wks instead just to give the pregnancy every chance. So, I had an U/S on March 13 and there was my baby with a great heartbeat of 137. I measured 7 wks 3 days. I can't believe it, we are so happy!! I guess I just ovulated really late but I truly thought there was no way I could be that far off. We are thanking God for this miracle. I feel bad that I had no hope but when you have bad experiences sometimes that's how you feel. Don't give up based on early U/S, it is just to early. God Bless you all!!

Wonderful news! Thank you so very much for sharing your story. You'll help so many women. Thank you for that!

Also, as I know you know from the many stories here, many women look one to two weeks behind in the first trimester and then measure more accurately in the second. Don't be surprised if you actually more than nine weeks and not the seven you believe yourself to be based on the ultrasound dating.

And, of course, congratulations!
