Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support

2nd pregnancy - 2nd blighted ovum

We just received the news yesterday that I have been diagnosed with my second blighted ovum.  To say I am heartbroken would be a vast understatement.  I'm extremely worried and frustrated.  I've read so many boards online about women have multiple blighted ovums and miscarriages and it makes me wonder if I have the strength to TTC again. 

One of the hardest things for me right now is this feeling of lonliness.  I'm almost ashamed to have to admit to people that this is happening to me, because I feel like none of my friends or close family understands what I'm going through.

I do find strength in hearing from others who are going through this too. and I truly feel for all of you.  Thank you for your support, words of encouragement and any stories you can share

I'm sorry you are going through this a second time. I just went through it my first time and have 2 kids and could not imagine it again. Keep your head up and know that it will happen for you

((hugs)) I am so sorry hun.  But just no you are not alone because we have all been through what your going through and no how heartbreaking it can be.  Has your doctor talked about doing any kind of testing at all?

Thank you for the support.  And I'm sorry for your loss as well.

Unfortunately my doctor said they dont do any testing until you've had 3 miscarriages, which is extremely frustrating.  But I was told by a few other members that I could request testing regardless, so I may do that.  I just don't know if it would make me feel better or worse at this time.  At least I would know, so that might help.

I'm sorry for your loss, I also suffered with 2 blighted ovums. It is devastating to say the least. Hang in there, praying for you. I had lots of prayers go up for me as well and I'm happy to say that I'm 36 weeks pregnant now. Just don't give up hope:)

I am so sorry for your losses :(. I am Glad you have found this group. It's really nice to be able to talk to others that are going through the same or similar situation and have your feelings validated. (((Hugs)))

I have had two losses in a row, at 16 weeks and 9 weeks. As hard as it is to put my big girl panties on and try again... We want another baby! We don't want to surrender to the defeat. That's what's going to keep me going.

Thank you ladies for your kind words and support.  It is beyond helpful knowing that there are women out there who understand what this is like.

So I just wanted to post an update and thank all you ladies again for your support. 

I ended up having to go in a week after the cytotec for a D & C.  I was really sad and scared but luckily the doctor's were great and everything went really fast.  I didn't feel a thing, and woke up feeling just a little out of it but not much.  Pain has been minimal and the bleeding still hasn't stopped, but it's pretty light. 

Also got news from the Dr. today, that she's referring us to the fertility specialist for some testing so hopefully all that goes well.  Taking each day as it comes.  That's all I can do for now.
