I went to the doc this morning for my first visit this pregnancy, and the doc couldn't find the hb with the doppler, so he got the portable u/s machine, and still could not see anything. He sent me asap over the hosp to do another u/s (of course with enough time to chug a ton of water). The u/s there, of course the tech says nothing, but the few parts I could see, my uterus was empty. Thankfully I got to empty my overly full bladder. But he could see little on the u/s, so I got to do a vaginal. When he left the room when he was done for me to change, I looked at the papers sitting there, and it said "No sign of YS or FP," Which I am pretty sure means no yolk sac or fetal pole. Which is what I pretty much figured at this point. He conferred with another radiologist and then got my doc on the line for me to talk to. He said, "There is a pregnancy there, but we are not seeing anything" I asked him what that meant, and he said, I could just be off on my dates, which, I'm sure he is trying to not upset me prematurely, but I am pretty sure that is not the case. After that I went to get bloodwork done, and the doc's office will have those results tomorrow.
I am thinking blighted ovum. I have very regular periods (think I have only ever missed when pregnant), and very heavy periods at that. I have had very minimal spotting (like when I wipe, it's pink) and that happened twice, right arund the time my pd should have started. I have had HEAVY spotting with both previous pregnancies, so I thought nothing of this. I have gained 8lbs in 4wks (and normally, if not on bc or pregnant I do not gain weight). I also have a big ole belly for 9wks, I mean, none of my pants fit (well, I guess that could be the 8lbs lol), but it's all right there. The doc wrote on the u/s referral that I had good IUP, which I am again assuming means Intra uterine presentation, and told me prior to the u/s that it felt like a 9wk uterus. I have also been so terribly nauseaous, I think much more than both pregnancies. Obviously if the baby died at some point, they would see it, and there was nothing. I have had a positive home pgcy test too, so I am thoroughly confused, and will have to wait until tomorrow to find out anything.
Has anyone here had a blighted ovum? How far along were you when diagnosed? I am so confused. TIA!
