I had an u/s on Wed (today is Fri) because i had brown discharge (sorry to be graphic) and the yolk sac was present, but they couldn't see the fetus. Is it a good sign that i have a yolk sac and high HCG (24,000 compared to 143 two weeks earlier) and tons of pregnancy symptoms? I'm going back on Monday for another u/s. I'm being told that maybe my dating is off (see my other posts, I was travelling overseas, etc.) and while my doc thought I was over 7 weeks, I could just be 5 or 6, which would mean that the fetus is still too tiny to be seen on an u/s..... BUT I've obviously done a lot of reading so the concept of a Blighted Ovum is scaring me a bit b/c it says that you have all of the pregnancy symptoms, but just no fetus! Any info would be appreciated....

I had a blighted ovum about a year and a half ago. My u/s showed the same thing as yours, and I kept hoping that it was just too soon, but I didn't get that lucky. My hcg levels were VERY high (they thought it might have been a molar pregnancy because they were so high, but it wasn't), and I had all the common pregnancy symptoms as well. All I can say is that I am hoping for the best for you... If you are a little earlier than you thought, everything could be just fine! Good luck and keep us posted!

Have you conceived again since having the blighted ovum? If so, how long did it take? Do they know what caused it in the first place?

Hopefully Devoted, I'm really sorry you are going through this right now...there is nothing good about it, but I guess you could say that the upside to it if you do have a BO is that it is pretty common and then you know why you miscarried for sure (it is just a chromosome abnormality which half of all miscarriages tend to be). Most everyone I've ever seen with a blighted ovum goes on to have a healthy baby. What is more frustrating is when you miscarry and have no clue why it happened, then you have to worry about it happening again, etc. I think you will be totally fine! Good luck and I hope this one still turns out to be normal which is a possibility!

Hi Hopefully. After my BO, I went through a bit of a depression, so we didn't try again right away. We waited about 4 months, and got pregnant the VERY FIRST time we did it. We now have a beautiful 3 month old daughter. :) So, even if that is the case for you, it doesn't mean you can't have a healthy baby very soon. Like Stefkay said, BOs are pretty common, and it is rare that you have one twice. Good luck.
