Just back from my appointment and it was as I suspected--blighted ovum.

I'm sorry this was the outcome, but happy to see that you are at peace. I wish you the best! Here's to a pre-heated oven!

While this particular news is a huge disappointment, I am sure there is relief in it too. Worry wears on a person, and you have had much to worry about this last week. I am sorry you've had the week from hell, and I am very sorry about the blighted ovum.

I had that once. While it was difficult to hear and comprehend, somehow it seemed better than an embryo that went further and then died. Your little bean just didn't get started correctly.

Your oven is capable of baking and all warmed up. You will have a fully baked muffin next time... and in no time.
