    Today I just saw my regular gp for another blood test for hcg levels, will get more answers tomorrow. He had been away when I first found out that I was pregnant, so I saw another gp at the clinic, as it turns out my hcg levels at 5+1 were only 324 (that's why I asked for a dating scan) and my regular gp said there should have been a follow up blood test because my levels were so low. Now I'm angry that I may have been able to find out sooner.
    So far, gp is recommending a d&c as going off dates, it all happened several weeks ago and there is still no bleeding or sign of my body doing what it's meant to

    Yep, this is #1 for us.

    It absolutely shakes your confidence when your first pregnancy turns out to be a blighted ovum. Someone in another thread said that once you've had a loss, you'll never again be able to look at pregnancy with that wonderful naivety - you're always going to have doubts lingering in the back of your mind. And they're right - I'm a big ball of anxiousness at the moment!

    I want to lie and say I was different but having a blighted ovum them miscarriage/D & C. I didn't feel safe until I was 20 + 1 with my little girl. She is gorgeous and healthy all earthside and in my arms now but gosh it took forever to enjoy being pregnant. I am hoping next time I can enjoy!

    maybenumber3 you have also had a rough trot... Did you found you enjoyed your pregnancies after miscarrying?

    redlipsandpearls I am so sorry it's been a terrible waiting game. Sending you big hugs. Here for you when you want to talk.

    No, I really think miscarriage taints pregnancy

    I'm 29+3 with bub number 3 and I still can't enjoy it, I'm constantly freaking out about something even though I know everything is fine.

    I don't think I'll relax until our little girl is born.

    Biggest of comforting hugs. I think that is how I will feel next time, probably putting me off TTC again!

    Well said Gentoo-exactly how I feel after my first preg didn't work out. I'm so annoyed at myself for thinking it would never happen to me n so jealous of all my friends n family who seem to not know how it feels. I just feel incredibly alone n like such a failure n anxious about getting my next BFP

    I started bleeding at 7 weeks and looking back my morning sickness disappeared a few days before that. I never had it confirmed but I strongly suspect that my miscarriage was a blighted ovum. My hcg levels and the (what looked like an) empty sac on the very low quality ultrasound in the ER make me think that. I was a mess at first but once the actual physical parts of the miscarriage were over it wasn't as bad. I have severe endometriosis and the pain that went with the miscarriage and bleeding afterwards was pretty extreme. We are ttc again and when it didn't happen last month I got really down again thinking how unfair it was and that I should already be 4 months pregnant. If we do manage to conceive again I think I will be anxious until at least the 12 week mark and probably beyond that.

    Hi.

    I just had my second mc. First one was in November very early and passed naturally. Second was about 6 weeks the ultrasounds looked good for being early then I started spotting and ended up having a d&c on Thursday. My ob said it was a blighted ovum and tgat the baby stopped forming at 5w3d :-( im crushed and feel numb how can this happen again!!
