For my personal pregnancy, I saw everything at 6wks4days - heart beating & everything. However! My aunt had the same issue as you - empty sac at 11wks!! No HB. She had bleeding & cramps. They told her to prepare for miscarriage & then at 12wks they went back to be positive & they found HB! Her daughter is 8. She is very very short, but very healthy & intelligent! Don't stress until you know for sure.. they can miss things and babies progress differently :-)
Hiya, I've just read your original post and wondered what the outcome was for you? I've just been to the hospital for a scan thinking I was 7 weeks+ only to find an empty sac :( I've had no bleeding but some right sided pain but the scan also showed a corpus luteum on left ovary which had bled a little. i'm really confused and also scared. I've had a blood test today and have to go back Saturday for another.
I didn't get to hear my heartbeat till 8-9weeks, and I didn't get my first ultra sound till 14 weeks.
Best of luck to you mama!!
I had a blighted ovum years ago, i started off lightly bleeding at 10 weeks, then it started getting redder and a little heavier. I had an ultrasound to get cheked out, and the sac was empty, and the size of about 8 weeks. I knew there was no way my dates were out, and so i had a d & c. With my following 2 pregnancies i was so scared of it happening again i had early ultrasounds at 7 wks and 8wks, and both had heartbeats and normal. With this pregnancy my first ultrasound was at 5w 5d, and no heartbeat seen, but there was a fetal pole. Even if you are only 6 weeks they should be able to see a fetal pole, you will not see a fetal pole in a blighted ovum. But if you are unsure of your dates, then just leave it for another week or so to see if the pregnancy has progressed. I really don't mean to upset you, but i have heard of hcg levels rising with a blighted ovum, its usually around week 10-11 that the body realises whats going on, and miscarriage starts.
I didn't have an u/s till I was 11 weeks, so I'm not sure, but I'll be praying for you and baby that all is well!
I would wait a little while longer just in case hun. Hoping for the best for you.
when I was 7 weeks I saw my baby, sac, and its little heart beating. Sorry hun
I'm hoping my baby is just a ninja or something, haha. I'm going to wait it out too. I've read too many stories about women being diagnosed with blighted ovums too soon & then going to go get that shot & there ends up being a baby after all.
That just happened to my best friend and i. I'm 25wks now and she's 10wks. She couldn't see her baby until last well and i couldn't see mine until 11wks. The drs wanted to give me the shot but since my hcg levels were perfect i decided to wait it out:)
I had a blighted ovum with my first pregnancy I was in complete shock and disbelief because everything seemed so normal my HCG levels where exactly where they should be so I wanted to wait it out before jumping to do a DnC hoping things would change well around 12 weeks my body finally started the miscarriage process.
