Does Alcohol Intake During Pregnancy Cause Blighted Ovum
I had a d&c for a blighted ovum 2. 5 weeks ago. Negative pregnancy test yesterday so hCG is gone. Now ovulation symp, can I conceive so soon after?
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Is a blighted ovum something that occurs naturally or can someone do something early on in the pregnancy that causes that to happen (like taking Xanax (alprazolam) before realizing I was pregnant)?
Blighted ovum pregnancy. Had sex day of spotting. Heavy miscarriage bleeding next day. Can sex the previous day cause another pregnancy?
Had sex day of spotting with blighted ovum preg. Heavy miscarriage bleeding next day. Light bleeding 2 more days. Could that sex caused another pregnancy?
I found out about pregnancy at 3 weeks and 3 days (counting from a conception day). I might have been drinking alcohol (usually I drink up to 2 glasses of wine per night at maximum). Of course, I stopped any alcohol intake as soon as I found out about pr
I'm 22 first pregnancy third cycle after starting to try, ended with blighted ovum. What are my chances of getting pregnant with a healthy baby?
Very high: Its actually fairly common to have a miscarriage early in pregnancy. And your chances of having a normal healthy pregnancy are great. Wait a little while to let your body heal and normalize your hormones but you should be fine. ...Read more
Possibly, tho: That would be a long while. Hcg would be the only 'pregnancy hormone' you might still detect. ...Read more

Is a yolk sac a good sign for a viable pregnancy? Could we see a yolk sac when its a blighted ovum?
Usually good: A yolk sac is an early sign that usually is a good predictor. However, just like anything in medicine, nothing is 100% so a follow-up ultrasound in about a week should be done as you should be able to see a fetal pole and a heartbeat around 6 and a half weeks. ...Read more
My 5th pregnancy was a blighted ovum. (my first miscarriage). I am pregnant again is it likely I will have a blighted ovum again?
Miscarriage: Every pregnancy has about a 25% chance of miscarriage, which may increase slightly with age. The fact that you've had other pregnancies is encouraging, but each pregnancy carries that risk. There is nothing you could've done to cause it, nor to prevent it. I am sorry for your loss and wish you good luck with this one. ...Read more
I recently had a blighted ovum. I'm now pregnant again and going in for a 7 week ultrasound. Will they be able to tell if this pregnancy is viable?
Assuming: That the transvaginal dating confirms 7 weeks, a heartbeat should be detected in a normal pregnancy. If it is 6 weeks, a heartbeat may or may not be detected, and if it is 5 weeks or less, probably won't be detected even in a normal pregnancy. This is also assuming that the gestation is otherwise normal in appearance. ...Read more
Blighted ovum or too early to tell just an embryo 6 weeks 2 days or 5 weeks 2 days with still developing pregnancy symptoms help.... They scared us
What will be will be: Let nature do what it does, and not worry at all until later in the pregnancy. That is because only a portion of conceptions become successful pregnancies. Nature weeds out genetic mutations and other abnormal embryos, in trying to preserve the human species. It has worked fairly well thus far, bringing us here from even before our caveman days. Be hopeful, but don't worry. What will be will be. ...Read more
4 weeks preg, what are some signs of a healthy pregnancy and an actual embryo is growing rather than a blighted ovum? Preg tests are getting darker.
Impossible to tell: The symptoms of early pregnancy, nausea, frequent urination, tiredness are largely related to the hormones produced by the placenta rather than the fetus. Even in the cases of unsuccessful pregnancies such as blighted ova, it may impossible this early to tell the two apart. Your doc will need to follow you with ultrasounds and likely bloodwork to tell. ...Read more
How viable pregnancy wth increasing bhcg lvls. Wk 4 (8000hcg); Wk 5 (24000); Wk 8 (174000). is there a chance of blighted ovum? In 2 wks will be U/S.
Numbers are good: But nothing is specific enough to guarantee it couldn't still be a blighted ovum. I run a specialty practice where we can US patients when the hCG is above 2000, so we routinely do 6 week ultrasounds. If you do not have access to US until 10 weeks that's not a cause for concern, but I'm afraid you'll just have to wait until then. Good luck and good wishes. ...Read more
