I posted in here last Saturday that the ER had told me my pregnancy was not viable. My hcg was not rising fast enough and the sac was empty. I was supposed to be 6 weeks so it wasn't a total shock that the sac was empty. The killer was the hcg, was supposed to 10k and was only 1k.

Well it took me a week to get a doctor to see me, there was major drama with my old doc and had to find a new one, I go today at 2:30. I have been a nervous wreck all weekend. I am still having strong pregnancy symptoms. So to prepare myself for the appt today, I took an $ test. I wanted to see if the lines were getting lighter so I would know for sure. It wasn't getting lighter, in fact the control line was WAY darker than the test.

Levels continuing to rise is common in a blighted ovum, but I can't help but hold out hope they will see a baby today.

***I was not impressed with the new doctor at all. sigh. Ultrasound showed a 4-5 week empty sac. He said he is not ready to call it a blighted ovum until I am 9-10 weeks ( I am supposed to be 7 and a few days now). I went for another hcg test and my levels went from 1050 nine days ago to 3557 today. To me this along with the empty sac are clear indications of a blighted ovum.
He also refused to test for a clotting disorder. Saying that they DONT cause recurring miscarriages. He is supposed to be a perinatal doc! How can he say that? UGH. Also if there is no baby in 2 weeks, he does not do D&C's so I need to find yet another doctor.
I am tired, fried and sad.***

First, I would like to say I'm sorry your going through this... I know what a tough time it is... Second, the new doctor that told you that clotting disorders do not cause recurrent miscarriages has lost his mind!

I would research new OB's... And I would find one that will test for the clotting disorders, etc. They can definitely play a major part in multiple losses.

Good Luck!

Hugs. I would go and see another doctor, one with a brain would be good.

I have had 2 losses and 2 healthy pregnancies, but my doctor decided to test me for a whole bunch of things including clotting disorders because she believes they can cause reoccurring m/c. And I'm glad I had about 10 blood tests before I got to 10 weeks with this pregnancy because I found out about the MTHFR gene thingy and the prothrombin gene thingy and I am on lots of folate and some asprin and my baby is thriving.

I say if you are not happy with your doc get a new one! Going through a loss is hard enough to deal with, let alone dealing with an idiot. I really hope things start looking up for you and you get the answers you need.

I just wanted to give you a little hope. At 6 weeks 4 days they saw an empty sac, nothing else. They told me they thought it was a blighted ovum. At 7 weeks 4 days, we saw a baby with a heartbeat. The doctors said it was a miracle - because I did fertility treatments, we were absolutely positive I conceived on August 28th.

See the cute little guy in my siggy? He's my blighted ovum.
