Postby nikkimomma3 » Tue Mar 23, 2010 11:34 am

I am going through the same thing, my lmp was on 1/28/10 i took a hpt on feb 25th and had the faintest pos. line i even had to take it apart and hold it in the sun to see it! I confirmed it the next day with a blood test. That same day was when my period was due 2/26th i started spotting just a tinybit and only on tp, i wasnt concered cuz that happed with all 3 of my previous pregnancys. then on 2/27 i have brite red on tp 2 times. but only a little spottin tell 2/28 then it stops completely,so 1st doctors app. 3/5 she is concerned about red spotting,so i had an v-ultrasound on the 12th of feb. they see a sac but no fetus and tell me i am mesuring 5w instead of 6w 1day, tech says its just to early...so i get a call from my doc when she got the ultrasound results and says you have a blighted ovum! Im shocked! so she wants me to go back in on 24th for another us.....i have had pregnancy symptoms and just the last few days started getting morning sickness....im so worried.

Ack!!! Please, get a new doctor.

Yes, this could end in miscarriage only because so many pregnancies do but, let me tell you, nothing seems out of the ordinary.

If you still cannot see a baby in the sac at ten weeks, yes, you can start worrying about a blighted ovum. This is way too early to worry.

Also, many women spot and bleed during pregnancy. That, by itself doesn't mean much.

Please, find another doctor. I have a feeling this one worries too many women unnecessarily. I do hope you get better news.

(((hugs)))

You and I are just about in the same situation! Read my post titled "please help me understand." You and I are working off of the same dates and everything!

My LMP was 1/28/2010 as well and I have another u/s tomorrow on 3/24 too! Do you have any HCG issues? Do you know your numbers and dates of the tests because my HCG has been doing quite well (I thought) but my dr says that it isnt.

I didnt have hcg levels done, my doctor never even mentioned it, alls i know is that she told me that i had a blighted ovum wich is an early misscarriage and she would have to make sure my hcg levels go back to 0 ? i mean not even a little hope! just flat out sorry but you misscarried. I was very upset that she didnt at least say, well its a little early so lets just see what happenes after your nex ultrasound. :() .....i will let you know what they find tomarrow! I also want to point out that on the same day i was supposed to have my period, i spotted a little witch was probably implantation bleeding, and exactly 2 weeks after that was my first ultrasound, thats not alot of time for things to develope!

Ladies, can I join you in this awful wait?? My LMP was on Jan 28, 2010 too, so that would make us 7 wk, 5 days right? So, I had an early u/s at 6wk 4days, and they said that I was measuring a week behind. They say a gest sac, but no yolk sac, and no fetal pole. My fertility doctor (different docs) said that was to be expected because my HCG was only 4551 on that day, and needed to be above 6000 to see anything. I have only had a few betas, and they were slow, but not outside the realm of possible. I also had low progesterone, so they put me on prometrium 3x per day. The doc says that I just have to wait and see... I am going to probably wait until I am at least 10 wks. I know it sounds crazy, but I live in a really remote Alaskan village, and have to fly on a plane to get an ultrasound!!! I still feel pregnant, but know that a bo can mimic pregnancy for a while. So...here I am still waiting..I am up one minute, and down the next!! How are you both holding up?? I can't wait to hear about your ultrasounds tomorrow! Jodi

Nikki, I agree that is so crazy that we all have the same due date!! I pray that we will possibly all get to have little ones too! I am really excited for you for your ultrsound. I pray that things look a little encouraging!!! I don't know if waiting is good or bad, it is definitely stressful. How are you feeling today???? I look forward to talking to you soon! J

Hi All

Postby melanie112 » Wed Mar 24, 2010 3:44 pm

I am so happy you all have found your babies. I unfortunately did not today. The sac is still the same size as it was last week as well. I took blood for the HCG again today and well shall see how that comes back but I am starting to loose hope here. I have one perfectly healthy 6 year old, have had no bleeding with this pregnancy or last and am only 26 where I have heard that BO is more common in older women.

My dr is going to want to end this tomorrow, I can feel it. Unless my blood shows something amazing which I doubt since the sac is not even growing now. If I need to miscarry, I would just prefer to go natural instead taking a pill but I don't want to have to have a d&c becuase I waited too long.

Girls, please keep me posted on how you are all doing. I will let you all know when I hear from the dr. tomorrow. P:(

blighted ovum

Postby mommyoffoursillykids » Thu Mar 25, 2010 9:10 am

Well, I am not far off from everyone else my last cycle was 1/20/2010. I had my third u/s yesterday 3/24. Still not finding a baby or heartbeat. just empty yolk sac. Said it must have stopped growing early. I am sorry for others going through this also, I spent all day just crying. I go back on 4/8 for final u/s then decide if have d&c if i haven't passed it yet. I don't know what to think about all this.

I have 4 children very blessed to have them!!!! It still hurts to know I lost this one.
God is with us!!!

That is terrific. Congratulations!

So what did that doctor say to you after the baby was found? I certainly hope she learns her lesson and doesn't scare anybody else unnecessarily.

Time to move this over to the Misdiagnosed forum...yay!!!

Hi Nikki, CONGRATS!!! :)8 :P B) I am so happy for you. Wish you healthy pregnancy and baby. Keep us posted on how you are progressing in your pregnancy.

Jodi: You are in my prayers :H Let us hope for the miracle to happen. Please try not to stress yourself. I was just like that when I had my several US before I could see my baby and E> properly. Docs kept on telling me that the pregnancy was BO. They all sounded so lame and I was feeling so horrible and terrifying. I really didnt know what to do. Finally, my last US, i received good news .The other docs really put me in stress unnecessarily :() Take care and keep us updated.

Mommyoffoursillykids: I can feel for you. For each woman, each pregnancy is always a special happening, no matter how many kids they already have . You are in my prayers too :H I wish you all the best on your US day. Please keep us posted.

Melanie: I personally is following your thread. There is always another pregnancy. God is GREAT. Do not give up HOPE.
