Blighted Ovum

Blighted Ovum

Hi everyone,

I`m writing this post with a broken heart. Previously updated you on finding out about my first ever pregnancy just at the time I was waiting for my 1st day of cycle to start the IVF journey. We were over the moon with our so-called miracle until we realized the sac was empty about 2 weeks ago. After having another scan last Friday, we were told the situation was the same and that we had to go back this coming Friday to have another scan, as the sac grew 2 mm in last couple of weeks, and then ending everything with a medicated miscarriage. All my feelings right now are displayed in the picture, nothing else can describe it better than: I never knew how much it could hurt to lose something I never really had.

  • Oh Sherry, I'm so sorry. From my own experience I know how awful this is. Make sure you give yourself enough time. I had a fortnight off work, then knew i only had to work for three days before having two weeks off for xmas. I needed that time xx

  • Thanks a lot hun x

  • Lots of love. I hope you both get to spend time with each other at this time xx

  • Thank you love x

  • So sorry to hear this Sherry, life can be so cruel πŸ˜” Huge hugs to you xxx

  • Sorry to hear your news! I can only imagine how you are both feeling....sending you big hugs!xx

  • Thanks for your kind reply x

  • hi hun, i know how you feel. I was told there was no heart beat on my 7 week scan and then had to go back yesterday a week later. Still the same, I have been referred to the early pregnancy unit to go through my options. Me and my husband was so excited . . its been devastating. I also have a blighted ovum, but the reason for my miscarriage was abnormal embryo. All I can say is take the time to grieve and when you're ready, try again. My clinic need one normal period before you can start again. I had a FET last time, so hoping to start again in July. I know we have been through a lot, but I am not going to give up and you shouldn't either. Hope you have the strength to have another cycle . . . .big hugs x

  • Hi love, many thanks for your kind reply. I've been away from here due to the horrible natural miscarriage which happened Thursday ( the week before last); I just checked your page to see how you were doing and found out yours happened on the same day as mine! Bless us :) How are you now?

    Wish you lots of luck for the next round; I was told we could go back to start our ivf journey after 3 months. Sending love and prayers xx

  • Hi Sherry its horrible isn't it. How are you coping? It wasn't meant to be for us, I am still bleeding and was told that could carry on for a few weeks. I have to have one normal period (june hopefully), then can start FET on my July period (I have 3 frozen embryos to use). Its just a lot to go through and the thought of going through it makes me anxious and nervous. Life is cruel, but all we can do is get on with it and hope for the best. Wishing you all the best xx

  • Hi Ditsy, I'm feeling better thanks; especially after going back to work. It keeps me busy and making me realise if I'm not good at making babies, at least I'm quite useful at work πŸ˜€ Just kidding! I just read your very recent post; unfortunately I don't have any experience with ivf but I'm sure you'll soon get an answer coming from one of the nice ppl here. Wish you best of luck with your next round πŸ™x

  • Hi sherry - thank you. Just take the time you need to try and feel normal again. It takes time but it will happen x

  • Fingers and toes crossed for all of us πŸ™

  • So so sorry to hear this. Was really hoping you would have good news on your repeat scan. This process just seems to throw up more and more heartache. Take time, look after each other, and in time you will find the strength to move forward again xxx

  • Will d; thank you very much hugs x

  • Sherry I am so so sorry. I sadly am currently going through this - our first ivf worked but at 7 week scan there was an empty sac. I had surgical management of mine on Thursday - nothing I can say will make you feel any better and I'm still in total shock and heartbreak trying to deal with it but if you need someone to chat to feel free to message me.

    I am so sorry for your loss, take as much time as you need to grieve and do not let anyone rush you xxx
