Please help- Blighted ovum 12 weeks
After bleeding yesturday i had a scan only to find an empty sac, i should be 12 weeks.. My heart is broken.. I just want to know did this happen anyone and their baby ended up growing? The bleeding stopped and there wasnt enough to fill a pad in the first place, im not in any pain and i still have all my symptoms.. Any opinions would help.. I know theres not much hope for me but im praying the scan tomorrow will show a baby.. Is there any chance?

Hiya.
Unfortunately if the sac is empty at 12 weeks then you will miscarry fully soon. Iam sorry for your loss. Its very difficult to go through.
This has happened to me twice in the last 6 months and both ended in a mc.
Iam on my third pregnancy and hoping for the best.
The first is always really really hard to get through. I relied on my partner and family alot after my first.
Afain iam sorry for your loss.

Thank you.
Just to give you some reassurance. After each miscarriage I had 1 period and then got pregnant right away so hopefully you will have a happy ending eventually.

Awww I am so sorry. I had 2 miscarriages in a row last year and I have no children. I understand how heart broken you must be.

It's awful that you had to find this out on ur 12 week scan!! Not a nice way to find out the pregnancy has failed. This happened to me. On my 2nd pregnancy I lost the baby at 9 weeks and 4 days, and I saw the baby heart beat at 6 weeks and 3 days. I then decided to pay for a private scan at 10 weeks, and found out there was no heart beat.

I was so heart broken, especially after believing all would be fine this time round, but sadlly I had to have a D&C for the 2nd time, as my body was not miscarrying on it's own and the miscarriage could have taken weeks or months, so I choose to have the D&C.

However I still feel blessed that I saw my baby heart beat. It was a beautiful experience, but it came with a cruel blow afterwards, when no heart beat was detected on the 2nd scan.

You will have a tough few weeks/months, as u need to heal now. Have a good cry, but keep active and busy, and talking about it does help alot, it helps to clear ur mind.

Please don't be hard on urself. Miscarriages are very common and doesn't mean there is anything wrong, it just means that sadly this pregnancy did not work out. So many of my friends and family have gone through it, some more than others, but they all have children now. Most failed pregnancies are due to ramdom chromsome errors that happens at conception, but normally you wouldn't have a 2nd one, but sadly I did.

No-one can ever be sure if all will be fine next time round, but you have to keep trying and remain hopeful.

Please be kind to urself. There is nothing you could of done to prevent this from happening. Takecare and continue to love urself. Ur beautiful angel will always be with you and will always live in ur heart. x x
