It's a blighted ovum

I just wanted to let you all know that I am not going to be having a February baby. This ended up being a blighted ovum (beta still only 1100, nothing on u/s but sac still). I will have one more beta on Thursday to be sure then scheduling a D&C next week (they will do yet another beta and u/s before doing the d&c - that day).

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Hopefully we'll get our take home baby soon..

I am so sorry to her that you are going through this :bigarmhug:

I agree with both of the ladies, don't give up (my goodness, you are still early, and I will continue to hope the best for you and your LO). It's my nature, so please do not take offense. I care very much about our moms here, and this is why I really dislike early u/s's myself. Way too much room for so many errors. It makes us all feel better, espeially you I know to have further testing and u/s.

I will be sending you positive energy and growing baby vibes.

Please keep yourself rested and please know you and your baby are in our prayers.

thanks girls. It's not even just the ultrasound. My betas have 100+ hour doubling times. 444, 872 6 days later, 1100 2 days after that..the doubling is slowing and the sac is measuring 1 day further than it did a week ago. We're doing another beta on Thursday and they'll do another u/s before doing the d&c next week (should be 7 weeks and sac measured 5w3d, last week measured 5w2d).

No unfortunatly, it's not a 'miscarriage' as no embryo developed. No egg was fertilized so it's not 'really' a pregnancy in a physical sense..

One more update for the road Smile I started bleeding today so hopefully this resolves on it's own and I don't need a D&C.

Take care - I wish you all nothing but the best! :bigarmhug:

I am glad your body is doing what it is supposed to and that you might be able to avoid a d&c. So sorry for your loss though Sad

I'm so sorry, I had a BO in 2009 and I know how disappointing they are. I hope you get to take home a LO soon.

So sorry to hear about your news. I've had a blighted ovum, and it is still sad to go through when you get your hopes up and then find out there was nothing there. Hang in there...you'll have that sweet baby someday! My story is like yours. I miscarried at 9 weeks and blighted ovum at 6 weeks. Then, the third time was the answer. Don't give up!
Hugs!
