    Default Suspected blighted ovum... Tilted uterus?

    So I've been google searching way too much ... Waiting a whole week before more results is already driving me crazy.

    I keep reading about people being told they have a blighted ovum, only to find a baby weeks later and the main reason seems to be a tilted uterus. The u/s tech didn't mention this, so I'll ask next scan, but I'm trying to tell via my scan pictures in the meantime. Does anyone know how I can get an idea?

    Default Suspected blighted ovum... Tilted uterus?

    How long ago did you get your BFP? If you think your 10+ weeks and sac only measures 6+4 weeks, are your cycles that long that you could have o'd that much later?

    I have a tilted uterus and was so worried when I had my ultrasound, that they wouldn't see anything. I'd read up on tilted uterus and so many people had not seen anything at first ultrasound. I had my first ultrasound at 6+5. The ob would only do an internal scan because it was too early. She found a tiny blob with a heartbeat.

    I hope when you have a follow up scan, that you see a nice bub with heartbeat. The waiting must be so hard for you. Hugs.

    I'll have to look back, I know it was 5+ weeks going off lmp. My cycle had always been a regular 28 day cycle up until October when I ended up being over two weeks late. I can remember with my hpts, I didn't get a pos result until atleast a week after af was due (going off a 28 day cycle) so there is a possibility that I did O late.
    The thing with a tilted uterus though, people tend to measure a few weeks behind in the first trimester and a baby can be seen for the first time anywhere into the second trimester.

    Another thing, a major sign of a tilted uterus can be discomfort during sex, especially certain positions and tmi, but sex has always been ridiculously painful for me as well as pap smears and anything else.

    Ahhh, I just want to know if it's a blighted ovum or a healthy baby already

    You ladies are going to get so sick of my questions by my next appointment haha. Sorry!

    We are not sick of your questions. I think waiting at least another 6 days will help in resolving the problem with not knowing. Keep asking those questions. You will never know if you dont ask

    I have finally made a decision, while there is no risk of infection or signs of a natural miscarriage happening, I'm refusing a d&c. I want to be sure

    Ask as many questions as you want to. The unknown is difficult to deal with.

    Have you ever looked into why sex is painful?

    I have had no signs of a tilted uterus, but a gyno told me I had one after a routine exam.

    Sounds like a good idea. You want to be 100% sure before you have a d&c

    Honestly, I forget to ask. I'm writing a list of things to talk with the gp about next week and that will come up when I ask about a tilted uterus.

    That's totally fair enough, I so hope it works out for you! Tbh, I'd do the same in your shoes.
