Christmas Miracle, Story of Hope

Postby mom2jenmae » Tue Dec 19, 2006 12:03 pm

I found this site last week as we were waiting for another ultrasound after a probable BO diagnosis with our 3rd pregnancy (2 healthy daughters with worry-free pg) This site gave me such hope when the outllook was not good. Here is my story: LMP was 10-19-06, started spotting on 12-4-06 (6w, 4d) went to dr, U/S saw small sac with nothing, dr states it looks that sac is only 4 weeks, HcG and progesterone levels were taken on 12-4-06 and 12-6-06, lab called 12-7-06, states HcG levels were doubling and to call back with any concerns. Prog levels were never mentioned. Dr calls on 12-11-06, concerned about prog level of 7.5. 2nd U/S done on 12-12-06, still only a sac (but sac was growing), nothing in sac, no yolk, no baby. Prog meds were started and we were told to wait a week and do another U/S. Over weeks time, pregnancy symptoms were getting stronger, I played it off as side effect of prog meds. Today we went for 3rd U/S where I should be 8w, 6 days. What a miracle, we saw baby with a heartbeat of 115. My husband and I were crying, the nurse was crying, WOW! I am only measuring 6w 5d. My dates were off and could be that prog meds helped along the way, too. We choose to believe that God has a miraculous plan for this baby and our lives. We had already decided b/c of this site to wait until 10-12 weeks to have a D/C. Never underestimate the power of prayer and waiting!! Merry Christmas!!

What a blessing! Not only for you but for me also. I am at a point where we are not sure where this pregnancy is going and we are resting in His hands. My friend said I should stop reading from this website but I told her I get so blessed and encouraged every time I read. I know in my heart that whatever the Lord wills for this baby of mine is OK and Oh, how happy I am to hear all the ways His hands are moving in peoples lives. So, I will continue to read and pray and hope. May your pregnancy continue wonderfully and may you have a wonderful CHRISTmas. ~Charlene~

First, let me say you are ALL brave women & this site has been a big comfort to me over the last 2 plus weeks.

On 2/5/09( 9 weeks) I went in for an ultrasound (never before did I have an early u/s with my other 2 children) I saw the fetus, the fetal pole & yolk sack but the tech & radiologist said there was no heartbeat. My OB recommended a D&C but my husband & I have been trying for 2 years & we decided to wait for it to happen naturally. I have had NO bleeding No cramping NO spotting. I started to wonder if my dates were per my ovulation tracking I would have only been 7 weeks, not nine. I could tell my OB was getting concerned so I had an HCG done 2 days ago & it was 28,000. She then sent me for another u/s & this time he said I have a blighted ovum. Can this be possible...???? Now, not to see ANY fetus & not to have ANY symptoms of miscarrying?? I am VERY confused but will continue to wait...I am getting ANOTHER opinion as next week I will be 10 weeks. (according to my ovulation)

I need some advice!

Blighted Ovum

Postby nenasangel » Sun Feb 22, 2009 8:38 am

Here is the link to the American Pregnancy Associations definition of a Blighted Ovum. The embryo never develops. My daughter had one last June and went through a terrible ordeal which ended up with 3 different procedures. She is now 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant with twins. I hope this helps and if you ovulate late or a late implanter this could explain them not seeing a heartbeat. From what I've read as long as your not running a fever, or have excessive bleeding (feel a pad in one hour) or excessive pain in the abdomen, it's ok to wait it out. There are many ladies on here who can give you a lot of support. There have been many ladies told the same thing with positive outcomes. Do you have a tilted uterus? I've heard this can cause babies to show behind. I will be praying for you and your family. Oh and here's the link: ... dovum.html

Did you go to the same place for the 2nd ultrasound? I am wondering if the equipment wasn't as strong as the 1st. Do you have a tilted uterus? That can make it hard to see thing and can give wrong dates. It is possible to m/c without any bleeding if your bory reasorbs the baby/pregnancy. It is not a common thing but it does happen. Do youstill have pregnancy symptoms? Many times in m/c people will still have them but nt as strong as before. I will be praying for a good out come for this next week.
