Has anybody experienced a blighted ovum without any signs of miscariage. My first 6 week scan showed empy sac measuring 12-14mm and 2 weeks later still empty but sac grown to 21mm. I have continued severe pregnancy symptoms with no cramps or bleeding. To my knowledge my uterus is normal shape so embryo should be visible. Has anybody else been through this experience. I remain very causiously optimistic, please advise

Hi lil - I don't want to worry you because everyone is different but here's my story. I had bo and didn't know until I had spotting at 12w 3 d and had an emergency u/s done. Two days after that I had a natuaral m/c followed by a d&c . I don't know how early you are supposed to be able to see the embryo because I never had the opportunity to have a scan done until 12 w. The day I started to m/c I still had a strong positive pg test. Good luck! I truly wish you all the best.

lil, yes i had a missed miscarriage over 3 weeks ago with no bleeding, no cramp. however i kinda felt funny about 1~2 weeks before the 2nd ultrasound which confirmed that there was no heartbeat and the baby only grew a little bit since the 1st ultrasound (1st one showed heartbeat). by "feeling funny" i mean i kinda felt the baby couldn't hear me when i talked to the baby as i did sometimes (don't laugh). and i also stopped feeling nauseous and didn't feel as tired, but ppl at the time just a__sured me that i should be glad that i felt better physically. but i sensed something wasn't right in my heart secretly. best of luck to us all.

yev - I feel your pain. Mine m/c and d & c was just last monday. I know what you mean because i didn't feel sick or anything either and i kept thinking i was pg for almost 13 weeks!

i know, lil. one moment you were pregnant, and next you were not. it all seemed so surreal. mine was confirmed at 11 weeks but the baby stopped growing at about 8.5 weeks with the size just over 6 weeks. i cried so hard for a few days after d&c and it got better and i'm moving on with my life. but the sadness still hits me every now and then, especially i'm' still bleeding from the d&c... take some good rest, if you can, talk to your hb about it. hope you feel better soon.

Thankyou all so very much for your advice and support. Unfortunately I had the results of my blood test this am and The hormone levels have decreased so sadly it's quite apparent I have lost my baby. Yev it's quite strange but I also had a funny feeling that something wasn't quite right just like you even though I was determined to believe every thing would be alright. I think I have cried myself out the last couple of days and started to drink coffee again this morning only to find myself reaching afterwards! If I had not had early scans I don't think I would have any idea anything was wrong and I find myself wondering if early scanns have any effect on pregnancies? There is no logic in it I know , I'm visiting my sister this weekend and she belongs to a really hi spec gym with brilliant spa's, part of me still feels I shouldn't use the Jacuzzi and steam room just in case - isn't this just silly?

hi switz, sorry my previous message was actually addressed to you. are you feeling better now? it took me over a week to stop thinking about it 24 hours a day... it'll be 4 weeks tomorrow and i'm almost back to normal apart from the bleeding (which is really frustrating). sometimes the whole experience seemed so surreal that i wonder if it really happened (apart from the fact that i'm still bleeding)... it might seem weird but i actually kept the 2 home pregnancy tests with the 2 pink lines. i was just so thrilled when it actually had 2 lines instead of 1 (we'd been trying on and off for 12 months). last week i remembered them and took them out... i've stopped crying a long time ago, but seeing those 2 lines made me have, well, a lot of mixed feelings. lil, i'm so sorry for your loss, hope we all get through this and our next pregnancy will be as successful as can be.

Yes this exact thing happened to me twice. Well actually 3 times, but the 2nd time I scheduled a D&E without waiting for any miracles to occur bc it was so obvious. Anyway, my biggest complaint about the natural mc was that I had to wait for it. I really couldn't take knowing I was pg but not really. I just wanted to be normal again. I too had some pg symptoms and that made me sadder yet.

Dear MARRIP3, I am sorry to hear your news but I think perhaps you might have more respoce to your queries if you go to Q&A ( top left) and read through other related questions to do with eptopic pregnancies or why not start a new question t_tle where people with similar experiences may be able to help you. As you can see I started this discussion about a certain type of miscarriage so I very much doupt you will find many answers here. Best of luck lil

Hi lil. This actually happened to me on "Good Friday" of all days. My husband and I were going in to see the heart beat and all we saw on the U/S was a big black hole where the baby should have been. I was supposed to be 9 weeks but it looked like the baby stopped growing at 6 weeks. I actually still had all of my preg. symptoms and no signs of complications throughout the whole 9 weeks of pregnancy, that's what even made it more difficult for me to accept. Last week I took the whole week off of work and opted to have a D and C done last Thursday. I still feel pregnant today, my b___sts are still sore and I can't get over the fact that I'm not pregnant anymore. This is the hardest thing I've even been through and the only thing that will help I guess is time. I really wish there were some complications during those 9 weeks so I could have maybe been more prepared for this loss. All I can say is it sucks! Just know that you aren't going through this alone.

THANK YOU LIL FOR YOUR RESPONSE I HAVE RESERCHED THE ECTOPIC PREGNANY BUT UNFORTUNALLY YOU GET A BUNCH OF CLINICAL ANSWERS I WAS HOPING SOMEONE ELSE AT MISCARRIED DUE TO HAVE AN ECTOPIC PREGNANY AND COULD SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES. HARMONE LEVELS ARE GOING DOWN SO HOFEFULLY SURGURY WON'T BE NEEDED
