Confused yolk sac and embryo found 5 weeks not 7-8 weeks

Thankyou all for your support means so much. Me and my AH went in today for the D and C and before it was done they wanted to re-scan me to check because the sac was large. We had the scan and they found a yolk sac and embryo size of 5 weeks but we are now 7-8weeks pregnant so not the size it should be. So our clinic said it was a blighted ovum which is an empty sac but we do have our embryo there. They didn't do the D and C they have put me back on my medication and to go back next week for another scan. I know it doesn't look good because we know the size it is but it gives hope and I know it's inside me so I can keep It safe for now. It just makes you feel confused after yesterday and you just want to rush time away so we can get to next weeks scan to know and move forward xx

Oh I feel for you so much. I had something similar happen over 8 weeks over Christmas. Horrendous waiting game waiting to see if the embryo would catch up - it always grew a little but never enough. A word of warning that the epau are generally very conservative and will wait and wait but my IVF clinic and sonographers were always trying to be more realistic. It's so confusing that they build up a shred of hope when it prob won't be.... Still, for now keep talking to the blob as we called it, welcoming it if it can grow and thankin your body for doing it's utmost to hold on. I promise it'll make things better later. I did find recovery after the D&C emotionally was quicker because I'd done so much grieving before. But would never want to go through it again. Lots of hugs x
