I have only yesterday had my scan (at 6wk 5d) and received the devastating news that it appears I have a blighted ovum This is an IVF conception.
I have been doing a lot of googling and I am confused about a few conflicting things I have read, particularly about low hcg levels being common, however my beta hcg at 6wk 4d was a whopping 49,979 and my progesterone is excellent at 126. The reason I had the bt was due to some brief spotting I had on the sunday evening prior which did not recur.
At present I am going back for another scan next week and I am booked for a D&C the week after that if I haven't miscarried on my own...which seems unlikely with my hcg and prog levels!
I am not looking for reassurance that this could be a misdiagnosis, my FS is quite confident and the sac did measure 30mm and no visible embryo inside. I'm just keen to connect with other women who have been in this situation and I'm curious to know if you also had a high beta hcg, and did you decide to let nature take its course or opt for a D&C?
Like most people I'm sure, I'm really keen for this pregnancy to end if that is to be its fate so I can move on with TTC.
Thanks very much!
