Blighted Ovum

I'm still waiting for a miscarriage.  My doctor hasn't called me back since my last sonogram.  All he says I have to do is wait.  I can't wait much longer it is driving me crazy.  I don't know what to do.  The next step would be a DNC and I'm not sure if I am ready for that yet.  Any advice would be helpful.

have they re checked your HCG levels? I was told I had a blighted ovum early in this pregnancy. When they rechecked my HCG levels they had actually began increasing again. Another ultrasound showed a heartbeat.  I wish you luck.

I never actually miscarried my blighted ovum.  They had to do the D&C because I ended up with what they call a missed miscarriage.  I am so sorry this happened to you.  Don't let anyone say that because there was no baby, you should get over it quicker.  It takes time to heal from this, I promise.  There is even a group for women who have suffered from this type of pregnancy.  It's not as uncommon as you would think, but you hardly hear about it until after you suffer from this.

Are they SURE that you HAVE a blighted ovum???

They told me that I did with this preg but it was just too early too see- a few weeks later sure enough there was the heartbeat!

I would ask for a repeat u/s and hcg levels before you discuss doing a D&C.

Good luck.
