Could someone please tell me if I'm having Blighted Ovum/Missed Miscarriage?
I had a dating scan yesterday and afterwards my doctor referred me for another scan in 10 days time as baby was too small for a scan. I'm just so worried about this and can't think of anything else...
Firstly I believe I'm 7w4d pregnant (BD only on 30/12/11 & O'd on 02/01/12 according to Fertility Friend). The Blood Test on 25/01/12 (5w1d) confirmed pregnancy & hCG level was perfect for 5wk at the time. I do have a long cycle of 35 to 40 days but O'd on CD22 so my calculation is not counting from LMP but counting O'd date of 02/01/12 as 2wks. Is this correct?
So I should have been able to see a heartbeat yesterday at 7w3d but instead they found no heartbeat, measurements on Gestational Sac @ 28.08mm=8w1d, and Crown-rump length @ only 1.98mm=5w3d
I understand at 5w3d, you may not see a heartbeat yet but I'm really concerned why the baby is only the size of 5w3d especially when the Gestational Sac is 8w1d which is closer to my actual date.
I am really worried that the baby might have stopped growing at 5w3d and my body doesn't know about it yet?
Is it possible for the baby's growth to be this slow and 2wk behind? I don't want to get hopes up for next scan but I'm just wondering (& hoping) that if this is possible and we may be able to hear the heartbeat next time. Could the baby be simply developing just very slowly?
This is my first pregnancy and I really don't know what to expect. I still have sore breasts and some days feeling nauseous but no vomiting...but I've read here that with missed miscarriage, your body could still produce hormones so those symptoms don't go away.
Does anyone know if there is a hope?
