blight ovum m/c

Last Tuesday I went in for my u/s and I was told that they could not see the fetal pole. It was suspected that I had a blight ovum, and I was sent for another blood draw (22,400) on Tuesday and on Thursday another blood draw (23,500) which verified the blight ovum. My doctor told me I could wait for my m/c to happen naturally (which could take up to 2-3 weeks) or have a d&c. I had the d&c yesterday.
My last 2 m/c were natural and the last one was so painful. I couldn't imagine knowing it was over and just waiting for the m/c pain to happen. Emotionally it was the worst thing to sign the papers for the procedure. My doctor called last night to check on me, I asked him about what he found, he said that it was just placenta tissue and there was no chance for our little one. Him telling me this made me feel better about my decision for the d&c. I have a post op on Friday where he said that we could review the path report.
Although I am very sad, I have found what I see as the silver lining. In March following my last 2 m/c's I had a uterine septum removal which they belived kept me from maintaing a pregnancy, and although this was a blight ovum, it appears that I am now able maintain a pregnancy and I pray that the next conception is good.

Hi Shannon! I'm so sorry for your loss.

If you'd ever like to talk about the uterine septum, I'm here. I have a severe bicornuate uterus {my septum nearly divides my uterus}.


I have had 4 {one with a set of heterotopic twins}m/c and do have 2 LO's, so it is possible :bighug:
