Q: Pregnancy successes after Blighted Ovum? Please share!

I had a miscarriage back in June (blighted ovum) and just found out a week ago that I am pregnant again. I am so excited but every time I start to feel excited about certain milestones like finding out gender and feeling baby kick I stop myself and tell myself I need to not be excited about that because I'm not are if we will get there this time.

I would really love to hear some success stories from some of you ladies of your pregnancy after a blighted ovum or miscarriage. My first scan is a little over a week away and I am so so terrified of going into my first appt and seeing another empty sac, it was so heartbreaking last time. I am so positive some days and other days (like today) I am worried sick. I just want a happy healthy pregnancy and I want to enjoy this time but lim finding it to be very difficult.

Since this was posted 2.5 years ago (and the OP won't be freaked out) I'll answer honestly. I had a BO at 6 weeks in December 2016. There was a very tiny, very empty sac, so tiny the doctor reviewing the u/s wouldn't even call it a sac. (My midwife confirmed that is what it was). It must have stopped growing shortly after implantation. We were devastated but chalked it up to bad luck and tried again. 4 cycles later (April 2017) I was pregnant again. Another BO at 6 weeks. I started spotting on the exact same day of the pregnancy and the u/s looked exactly the same as it did in December. We're now facing a referral to an RE and a battery of tests. We do have a healthy 2yo, but at this point I'm terrified we'll never have another baby.

I hope you got your rainbow, OP.

Heatherbbns, you and DH feeling different about TTC again is not a men vs women thing. It's just a humans with differing feelings thing. Neither sex nor gender has anything to do with it.

I had a blightened ovum back in June. It was heart breaking. I didn't get my first scan till 12 weeks. I had a few m/c before that as well but they all ended on or before 6 weeks. I was so happy to make it to 12, then unbearable heartbreak at my u/s. It was awful. After that I didn't really want to get pregnant again. My husband on the other hand wanted to keep trying. I think I didn't want to because of all the disappointment I went threw. So different for woman vs men. So in October I found out I was pregnant again. Like you I was scared. I read that the chances of having another blightened ovum was under 2%. I refused to tell anyone I was pregnant and remained in denial until recently. I'm not 9 weeks 3 days. I started progestrone this time around too. Baby looks healthy so far. I've had two scans already and after seeing a heartbeat I'm starting to come out of denial. Couldn't be happier I'm sure you will feel the same way soon! Good luck! Let us know how it turns out!

I've suffered 4 losses in 12 months 3 after a HB was seen - cause (unbalanced chromosome's) and one of which being a Blighted Ovum, I am now 15w2d preg and everything is great this time. Every pregnancy is different just because you've had 1,2,3, or 4 m/c's in my case it doesn't mean that the next pregnancy won't succeed. Best of luck hope all goes really well for you this time around and congrats on your pregnancy x

I have suffered three miscarriages the most recent was a set of twins back in January which ended up both being blighted ovums. I had feared this pregnancy was going to end the same since my first scan showed only an empty sac but the next week there was a cute little blob and heartbeat:). I know how stressful and scary it is and you don't want to get your hopes up. I still worry about my baby and I'm 36 weeks. Just try to enjoy every moment of this pregnancy and believe things will be ok. I think all will be well with your little one:). They say you usually don't have two blighted ovums in a row and I hope they're right! Best of luck hun!
