I don't think the last person is clear on what a blighted ovum is.

[B]"Blighted ovum: A fertilized ovum (egg) that did not develop or whose development ceased at an early stage, before 6 or 7 weeks of gestation. On the ultrasound examination of a blighted ovum, only the gestational sac that normally surrounds the embryo can be seen. There is usually no embryo inside the gestational sac"[/B]

The posters baby had a heart beat seen in the embryo.

Yes some miscarriges happen when there are chromosomal abnormalities with the baby. I was told that the first time, when my baby died and it gave me hope. But the by misscarriage #3 I had them do an analysis on my baby and she was absolutly perfect. It just bothers me that the last person said that first trimester m/c's were " almost ALWAYS" related to a blighted ovum. Because they are not.

Maybe I am just being sensitive today. But what she said and how she said it kind of hit a nerve.

To the poster: So so so sorry for what you are going through. My last m/c We saw the heartbeat at 8 wks very strong..and heard it at 13wks...and then she died. Its hard, it sucks and it seems unfair. I hope we all find answers someday.

Take care, Jess
I just want to say that I just now re-read what I had written about blighted ovums in this thread....and I want to tell [B]Troublesleeping[/B] that I am very sorry if you felt I came off as rude, because I think I did. I have been having a hard time lately and some days are worse than others and that day must have been a bad one. BUT.... there was no need to be so rude because I know you meant well in what you said and there is some truth in everyones post's here. So, I am sorry and I hope I didn't make you never want to post here again and I hope if you ever need help in dealing with a misscarriage you will come here.

Take care to all those who are having hard moments and I hope you find some peace, Jess.
