After our failed IVF last year we decided to stop TTC and moved on to adoption. We had fully accepted the idea that we would not have biological children, and I was legitimately fine with it. We brought our foster son (5yrs old) home in July, and will be finalizing his adoption in January. At the beginning of September I was surprised with a pregnancy. But, we found out at 10 weeks that it was a blighted ovum (the placenta grows, but because of chromosomal abnormalities the baby either never forms or stops developing very early on), and I'm in the process of having a miscarriage. We're sadden by the lose of what might have been, but we certainly were not expecting this baby, and we still have our son.
So basically what my question is is this. From everything I've read most cases of blighted ovums are pretty random things. Most people who have one do go on to have a normal pregnancy in the future. I was just wondering if with our infertility issues if this would be the case. I'm very doubtful that I could even get
