Blighted Ovum
Fri, 10-19-2012 - 2:57am

While my Dr. hasn't yet confirmed that I have a blighted ovum, during my 1st ultrasound this week, they only saw an empty sac. I go in again at the end of next week for another ultrasound to confirm, one way or another. But at this point I'm pretty sure that it won't be good news. I should be about 8 weeks according to my calculations. I saw both my other babies by this time.

I'm still taking care of myself like I still have a baby growing... Just in case. But I'm not holding on to a lot of hope.

(((HUGS))) to you!  I'm so sorry you are going through this. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Hopefully you'll have some good news to report next week after your ultrasound.  Please keep us posted.

I'm so sorry. I had a blighted ovum in March. I wish there was something helpful I could say, but I know that there aren't any magic words. I will say a prayer for you though--that you will be able to make it through the coming week until your next ultrasound.
