Statistically I don't know,  but I'm sure some of the other lovely ladies here will  be only too happy to share their knowledge and experiences with you.
My own limited experience is that I had a blighted ovum last year detected when I had an early ultrasound after an episode of light bleeding at 7w 4 days. I'm 13 weeks 1 day pregnant right now and I saw a very healthy looking fetus at my ultrasound yesterday :)

Good luck,

Ruth xx

I had a blighted ovum June of 06, m/c around 9w.  I had a chemical pregnancy in Sept. and got pregnant again in Oct 06 and I am now 35w today.  I have my C-Section planned for June 19 the very same week I had my m/c last year.  It can happen.  My dr. said a lot of women have blighted ovums and never realize it because they view it as a late af, but with me I had almost missed two af.

I had a blighted ovum last summer, they discovered it at 11 weeks when I began to bleed lightly.  I m/c early June, and was pregnant after my first af, just 5 weeks after my m/c.  I have a healthy 7 week old baby now.  It's just tough to get through the first trimester after a m/c 'cuz yu are so scared something is going to happen again, but really b/o happen more than you think and so many women go on to have healthy pregnancies right after.  Good luck.

I had a bo mc in October anad am currently 27 weeks pregnant with a child conceived about 6 weeks later.

A bo is due to a bad egg,,,,apparently we all drop them now and then.

Good luck, and be sure to tell us when you are preggers again.

I don't know all of he medical and technical chances but I can tell you from experience that the chnces that you will have a healthy baby are pretty high. I had a blighted Ovum in October 2006 and I am currently 10 weeks pregnant and the baby looks great. Hang in there, you will have a healthy baby soon. You just have to be patient and give your body time to adjust. Good luck!

Thx, ladies. Reading your posts about success after a BO has made me much more optimistic. Here's hoping we can be successful on the next one.
