Empty gestational sac

Hi. I recently had iui on the 17/3/15 and my first scan done on the 22/4/15 which showed an empty gestational sac measuring 4w6d. I,was told I,should be 7 weeks. I returned today 20/4/15 and although the sac had grown it was still empty. I was informed to stop taking the pessaries and let nature take its course (miscarry. I have been given an appointment with the early baby unit for more prodding n tests next Tuesday. What do I do. Do I stop taking pessaries and lose all hope or do I keep taking them n prey for a miracle. Please help me I'm lost xx

  • Hi shelly_2105. I was so sorry to read this. Unfortunately, it does look as if this pregnancy has not made any progress. At 7/40wks gestation, you would be seeing a definite little “baked bean” shape and a heartbeat. I think you should take their advice and stop using the pessaries. For some reason, this pregnancy has not made much progress. When you go back next Tuesday, hopefully they will be able to talk over what has happened. All you can do for now is to rest when you can and look after you. Diane

  • Hello. I'm so so sorry to read this. I would follow Advice and stop them. I know it sucks. Really I do. Been there myself. Good luck for Tuesday. But please don't blame yourself over this. It's nothing you did or didn't do. I wish someone had told me that a lot sooner than they did. Treat yourself. Rest as much as you want to. As your are the most important person right now. Lots of love darling. Xxx

  • So sorry to hear this. I found the miscarriage association helpful after my second miscarriage. They have a website and a helpline, you should be able to find them on the web.

    The early pregnancy unit we were treated at were really good, they will explain the treatment options to you. I'm happy to answer questions if you want to PM me.
