7 weeks empty gestational sac

Postby becky88 » Sat Feb 15, 2014 10:12 am

Hi every one,
I wanted to know if any one has had an empty gestational sac at 7 weeks and diddnt have a m/c? I had a chemical pregnancy in december and started trying again in january. I got a bfp early february and had my hcg checked. It wasn't doubling like it should at first but then it went from 50 to 450 in a matter of 4 days. Which I thought was good. Then we had the first ultrasound at 6 weeks and the sac measured 5weeks 3days and was empty. We just had another at 7 weeks and the sac was still empty and measured 6 weeks and 1 day . The dr says Ill probably m/c naturally and we're repeating hcg to see if the are still rising but I dont have the results yet. I dont really see much hope here but I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

with my last pregnancy I started spotting and having back pain at 9 wks 3 days and went in for an ultra sound to find a sac that measured 6 weeks 5 days with no baby in it. I miscarried two days later. I had both an abdominal and transvaginal ultra sound down. I never felt right the whole pregnancy I was never as sick as I should have been so I always kind of knew something was wrong. Its a hard road to go down.

It has been quite a rollercoaster. I havent felt sick at all just tired and sore bbs. Ive been telling the dh this whole time that I don't "feel" pg but this is my 1st so I really have nothing to compare to. Im sorry to hear abour your m/c! Its really difficult and it hasn't quite sunk in for me yet.

Hi Becky,
I had the same thing. It's called a "Blighted Ovum"
I have a post on the boards if you want to read about my experience.

Basically what happened to me is that I started spotting, went in for u/s. They found a gestational sac but it was empty. I should have been 8w5d, but my gestational sac only measured at 5w. Hcg wasn't doubling but also wasn't dropping. I waited 2 weeks before the doctor decided my body didn't know the pregnancy wasn't viable. So at 10w4d I had to have misoprostol.
I am now 17 days post misoprostol, the bleeding has finally stopped and my hcg is down to 300.

Keep your head up. This isn't an easy journey but you will make it through.

If you have any questions or anything you can message me or post here! :)

Hugs.

I also knew something was not right I only had sore nipples nothing else. I knew when I didn't have nausea that something was different/wrong. I was not surprised when the bleeding started yet at the same time I had held out hope so it was not a huge shock per say but I still couldn't believe it kwim? I got pregnant again my next cycle and that has helped immensely.

Hi ladies,
Thanks for posting! It helps knowing others experiences.
the dr said it was a blighted ovum for sure last Thursday. I had my hcg tested and it was 17000 and so they did another u/s and still empty and hadn't grown any. My dr suggested the misoprostol because my body isnt showing any signs of having the m/c naturally and I really didnt want the d&c. So I'm taking it this weekend. At this point I just want to get back to normal.

Hey Becky,
I did the misoprostol as well. I have a post that is blog-style experience of it if you want to read it. I was off work for a week when I did it though. I did the tablets on a Tuesday and finally felt more recovered by Saturday. But it was physically draining and mentally exhausting.

Good luck!
