My not so Blighted Ovum.........................!!!!!!!

Postby crystalpeterson2 » Wed Nov 07, 2007 2:13 pm

I was told at 6 weeks pregnant and again last week at 8 weeks that I had a blighted ovum measuring 4 weeks 6 days and that I was going to miscarry any day. I've had alot of trouble with this because I have felt so pregnant everyday. My husband and I decided to get a 2nd opinion just to confirm everything and make us feel better knowing for sure. I never had any bleeding or pain either. Well I went in for my second opinion yesterday..........

I first had the ultrasound in the doctor office and she couldn't see anything so she got me right in to the u/s tech next door that is an expert at this and there is a healthy 9 week old baby in there with a strong heartbeat! It was amazing! We are so excited! I am due between June 7th and June 12th. I never thought in a million years this would happen. I bawled and bawled. The heart beat is 180 and the u/s tech said that is great. Unbelievable! Miracles do happen and prayers do work! I finally have my miracle!

Hi Crystal,
I just read your story and I am so happy for you. I am in the same situation that you were in right now. Today I had my second transvaginal US. I should be 8 or 9 weeks. my first US was last week with the second today. Last week they told me there was just a sac and it could just be too earlier. This week they diagnosed a blighted ovum with no change in the sac size an nothing visual like a yok sac or fetal pole. My doctor didn't even feel that it was important enough to meet with me and my husband while we were in the office.

After ready your story and several others, I'm wondering if this could be a misdiagnosis. I just got a call from the doctor. I asked her if this could be a misdiagnosis and she was extremely rude to me. I am extremely upset at how she just treated me.

Was there a difference in gestational sac measurments between your 6 wk and 8 wk US? What type of US was used that finaly found the baby? where are you located. I'm in the NYC area.

I want to get a second opinion and am trying to get in somewhere.

Please let me know if there was some special circumstance with you that enabled the 4th US to be the one to show the baby.

thanks so much and again I'm so happy for you.

I'm glad I was able to give hope to you ladies!

Rebecca: I was told at 6 weeks pregnant and again at 8 weeks that I had a blighted ovum measuring 4 weeks 6 days and that I was going to miscarry any day. It never grew in between. I had transvaginal u/s done in the office. I never had any bleeding or pain either. Well I went in for my second opinion at 9 weeks to another doctor.

I first had the ultrasound in the doctor office and she couldn't see anything (not even my uterus)so she got me right in to the u/s tech next door that is an expert at this and there was a healthy 9 week old baby in there with a strong heartbeat! It was amazing! This was an transvaginal u/s too!

Please get a second opinion and wait on an d&c. My baby didn't show up until 9 weeks so it can happen! Good luck and keep me updated on what happens.

Good luck to everyone!

Congratulations!! :)O<

I'm glad that I found this website and have enjoined reading the amazing stories. Mine was not so great, I had a D&C yesterday, had a blighted ovum and donde the us 5 times in the last two weeks and my sac was a 6 w sac for 3 weeks when I was supposed to be 10 wk pregnant, somehow I knew in my heart that there was something wrong. I have had a long difficult 3 weeks and now feel relief and in peace.

God bless you all!

Crystal:

Thank you so much for giving us hope. I am having my 2nd u/s on 12/17 after a 50/50 diagnosis on 12/10 that I have a bo. I still will only be 6.5 weeks along. If they again are pessimists, I will find another doc and wait until January. I can't take this stress anymore. They act like everything is an exact science and not every uterus is the same!!!!!

Thanks again and best wishes to you!

[size=18]I'm glad that my story is still helping. I went through 3 weeks of being told I had a blighted ovum just to find out that at 9 weeks it was healthy. I know beleive in always getting a second opinion by u/s. Good luck and keep me updated!

to hope or not to hope

Postby LadyT2g » Fri Dec 28, 2007 5:13 pm

I am supposedly 8wks and the doctor just told me that my sac was empty a few days ago (Dec 26th-what a Christmas gift). I don't want to hold onto false hope. Neither do I want to just give up if there is a possibility. I'm not hurting and not bleeding. I don't know what to do or think. I'm thinking I should just wait it out. The doc said that I should have a heavy period in about a week and to come back in two weeks for an us. He prescribed me some medicine, but I'm afraid to take it j-i-c. My boyfriend is hanging onto hope and I don't want him to be let down. I can't tell if I still feel pregnant or not. My mind is a wreck. Can anyone tell me what they felt (physically) during this time whether or not it was misdiagnosed or not? I don't know what to do and I can't bring myself to talk to anyone about it.

Lady T:

I hope you wait to take the medicine. Like my story you never know if the doctor is wrong. I didn't feel any different at the time of my diagnosis and I had no bleeding and no pain either. I even started to feel a little better from the mornig sickness. Then the next week the morning sickness returned so that is why I got a second opinion. The 1st doctor that gave me the misdignosis told me I would start bleeding in 1 to 3 weeks and if not to go back. Well that never happened. I wish you much luck and I hope you wait this out. Some babies develop later like mine did.

Lady T, it is not time to give up hope. Did they do an abdominal or a transvaginal ultrasound. The abdominals are less reliable, but transvag isn't perfect either.

FYI, I was told I was 7w3d pregnant but the sac was empty. All that week I waivered between having lots of hope, based mostly on superstitious "signs" that I still believe, and having the feeling that there was no hope, mostly because my boobs hurt less and my nausea was better. Well, lo and behold I was actually 1 week earlier than the sac measured at the first US. The second US showed a healthy 7w2d fetus, a week later.

I am 15 weeks now with a normal looking, growing, moving baby. Not everyone has the same outcome as Chrystal and I, but I think it is too early to give up hope. You only need to do something to "flush" if you are having signs that your own health is in danger, like fever (could indicate an infection). Until then, it is your own personal comfort level that will determine how long to wait. Best of luck, and have sequential HCGs drawn.

My baby has been born too early

Postby crystalpeterson2 » Fri Jan 04, 2008 9:22 pm

I have awful news ladies:

I went in yesterday for my checkup and doctor could not find a heartbeat. He looked forever on the u/s machine and then sent me next door to the u/s specialists and told me this does not look good. I went over there and same thing. The baby stopped growing at 16 weeks 2 days.

The doctor then stated he needed to induce me to have this baby instead of having a c-section because if he gave me a c-section he would have had to take my uterus as well.

At 12:30 pm yesterday they started my labor. At 6:00 my labor progressed and was very painful and I was dialated to a 5. I then accepted an epideral for the pain. Blood started coming out at 11:00 pm all over the bed. The doctor and nurses then put me in the stirrups and I delivered my precious baby at 11:30 pm last night. We held him for 1 hour and prayed for him before they took him to the morgue. They determined the umbelical cord became kinked and cut of his supply to me.

He is fully developed and beatiful. He looks like his Dad. His name is: Andrew Justin Peterson
and we are having a funeral on Monday.

My heart is broken. I don't know how to get through this. I miss my baby. I am home now and I wanted to share with my friends what has happened.

Love,

Crystal

There is nothing I can say that can ease your pain but I will keep your family in my thoughts and I hope you can find the strength to get through the funeral and find peace.

I am so sorry for your loss. With an early miscarriage in Aug 2007, I am also heartbroken, but this makes me feel more for other going through the same route. My tears just could not stop as I know how precious each life is, especially the baby is with you for over 16 weeks. Keep strong, you are in our prayers, God will take care and comfort you.
