I had a “missed miscarriage” diagnosed back in February. My doctor doesnt see patients until week 10 and I had zero spotting and no indication of anything wrong whatsoever. The ultrasound showed an empty gestational sac. A second ultrasound confirmed the same thing –  it’s called an anembryonic pregnancy or blighted ovum. I had no doubts about my dates as we were using OPT and I tracked every BD.  My body never did want to commence miscarriage (bleeding) so I had to have medical intervention. I hope your outcome is different.

I’m sorry you’re in this situation. It sounds so confusing and upsetting. I had an early miscarriage a couple of weeks ago. It started with some spotting, progressing into mild bleeding. That day I got a negative HPT after having had 2 positive at home tests and positive lab work at the doctor the week before. At that point I knew something was wrong. I called the doctor who told me there was nothing that could be done and I should just wait it out at home. Within two days it was obvious that it was a full blown miscarriage. I was crushed. But I am already doing much, much better. 

If your doctor has taken measures to help you, that means there is at least some hope. I’ll be praying for a good outcome for you. If the worst comes to pass, you will get through it one day at a time.

I went through this exact thing with my daughter when I was 7 weeks pregnant. I went in for my first check up and left crying.

The doctor told me my HCG levels were no where near where they should have been (military hospital so they had my results from the emergency room where I found out I was pregnant) and they were concerned that I was having a tubal pregnancy or that I’d miscarried and they would either way have to do an emergency operation.He gave me a 10% chance that things would be OK. 

He made me go in a couple days later for more blood work and basically to see if I needed to be rushed to surgery. My levels boosted up everything looked completely normal and everything was up to par. Now I have a beautiful baby girl.

I don’t know if I’m in that 10% group that beat the odds but what I think is that is was a “false alarm” deal. 

Take care of yourself and let us know how everything goes

This happened to me.  Got pregnant on the second try last fall.  Went in for a first checkup around 7w, on the day after Christmas.  Ultrasound dated me at 5w5d and there was no heartbeat.  I told my doc that seemed wrong but she said I probably counted incorrectly.  (Uh, no.)  Went back 5 days later, on NYE.  Still no heartbeat.  I had to take drugs to force a miscarriage because otherwise there was risk of infection.  (I chose not to have a D&C.)  It took about 6-7 weeks to get another period.  3 cycles later and we are still TTC.  After the next round I am going to see my doc to see if we need to get checked out since I am already 36 and don’t really have time to spare.
