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

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

I had a blighted ovum with my first pregnancy , i found out i am 6 weeks 3 days pregnant now, what are my chances of having another blighted ovum?
Low: I think your chances of this happening again are low. Blighted Ovum is an out-of-date term for which is now called an Anembyronic pregnancy. These typically do not have a fetal pole (a tiny baby). If you based your current gestational age on a regular period cycle, then you should be able to see this fetal pole and likely the heart beating on ultrasound by this point. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I am sorry to hear about your situation. If your doctor did an serum HCG and the level was far to too low for a fetus of this age, that would be suggestive that the ovum did not live. I think it would bother me if a physician did not confirm the ultrasound finding. I recommend that you talk to your physician and explain your concerns. ...Read more
I have been diagnosed with blighted ovum, @7 weeks, 2days. After d & c, how many cycles should we wait again before trying?Affects future pregnancies?
Wait 1 normal period: Sorry to hear of your loss. After a D&C your pregnancy hormone (HCG) will fall down to zero in a few weeks, with some bleeding at that time. Wait 1 more cycle after this before trying again - after your next 'normal period'. There may be a higher chance of another miscarriage in the 1st month, so use condoms. 1 miscarriage is common, if you have 2 or more see a rei specialist to get checked out. ...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
