I hope this is the right place to post. It might be easier if I just write down what my paper here says..

"There is one sac with a mean sac diameter of 1.3 cm and one sac with mean sac diameter of 1.0 cm, approximate gestational age 6 weeks. Neither sac contains a yolk sac or fetal pole. There is small cystic focus measuring 0.5 cm which represents a small bleed although conceivably could represent a third gestational sac, disproportionate in size. There is a large subchorionic bleed measuring 5.5 x 4.1 by 2.0 cm.

Summary:
Twin pregnancy with the possibility of a third small gestational sac. No fetal poles are identified although this is not abnormal given the early gestational age. Nonetheless, no yolk sacs are visible and this does raise concern for viability. There is a large subchorionic bleed."

I am looking for some thoughts on this? Am I experiencing a blighted ovum? Well two or three? Or could there be a chance (please!!) that this will be a successful twin pregnancy?
I go in tomorrow to have my hcg levels checked again, but I heard that they will still rise if it's a blighted ovum. And then another ultrasound on monday. But waiting sucks!

I know this is not what you want to hear, but there's probably no way to tell right now. These early ultrasounds are notorious for being off, and every baby develops slightly differently. The HCG levels can be helpful, but yes...it could still be a blighted ovum even if they are rising appropriately.

Both of my pregnancies began with funky HCG levels and/or ultrasounds that led my docs to tell me that my pregnancy was either not viable or a threatened miscarriage...they both turned out fine. A lot of times twins will start out behind and then catch up!

Is this a natural multiple pregnancy, or were you doing fertility treatments? Do you know exactly how far along you are?

When monitoring pregnancies this early in gestation, I can't stress enough that every day counts. Just because they can't see anything today does not mean they won't see anything tomorrow or the next day. I hope everything goes great on Monday!!!

This is very true! Don't start thinking blighted ovum just yet - it's really too early to know.

Thank you everyone. I am trying to keep positive! According to my last missed period I should be 7 weeks. So it's only one week off. And this was a natural pregnancy, I was not trying to conceive at the time.
