QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
If I found out I was pregnant in July and i had a blighted ovum sometime, cause I had the ultrasound and found out Nov. the 12, But I never have had a period. Now I am taken a home pregnancy test it says pregnant could I be or could it be from the blighted ovum?

ANSWER

After the blighted ovum was discovered, did you bleed? Did they check to make sure that your hormone levels went back to zero?

If these things were done as they should have been, congratulations! You are pregnant again.

If not, then I don't know what is going on right now, but I'd suggest you get your hormone levels checked, probably twice 48 hours apart. Good luck!
