Since I began spotting on Friday and confirmed MC via US,

I had no idea what would be the next steps to take since my previous MC 2 years ago passed naturally at what should have been around 7-8wks gestational.

This time around I'm also MC and what should be 8wks gestational I was given the option by my Dr to wait naturally or issue a D&C. Personally I don't like the thought of surgery and the process sounds overwhelming so in the moment I was asked I told doctor I would rather wait for everything to pass naturally.

Today I woke up feeling trapped in my own body as it thinks it's still pregnant but is not and that alone is starting to take a toll on me mentally. While I was doing some research i think the pill may be a better option for me,

but im stuck still waiting to see if that's an option from my dr office.

On another note , I'm still confused on the ultrasound report and honestly am not the happiest about the OBGyn visit I had because she didn't go over the report in detail just said she's sorry I'm miscarrying and what procedure did I want.

I'm including the report here in hopes someone could help clarify anything at all. To what I'm understanding is there was no baby present only an empty sack?

Report mentions a molar pregnancy which I was so scared after googling but my doctor didn't mention anything about that. Someone on another thread mentioned that this may be a Blighted ovum MC

So I'm really confused about what type of MC I'm experiencing.

But If this is the case and only a Sack is present I might not have much left to pass and I'm hoping this means less pain?

I don’t know I have a similar situation to you but, I had blood work yesterday and the hcg levels drop I didn’t get a report but the nurse did told me that I could experience pain and passing the blood clots in the next few days. I haven’t went to the Er because it’s not much they going to tell me besides me being there all night! I would have been 9 weeks if I’m right with calculation but I was told that I was miscarriage at 6 wks so I’m clueless until my next appointment which is next week

@Hope0720faith0618,

was baby present during your US?

My follow up isn't until 2 weeks. I keep spotting faintly off & on some days yes and some no, but I did noticed some yellow almost brown discharge earlier when using the restroom not sure if that means anything is close..

Wow this is so crazy reading your post and relating to almost every detail. I had my 8 week US where the tech couldn’t tell me anything but hinted at some problems. I got the US reviewed the next day and the radiologist stated everything was normal and to come back again in two weeks, even though we couldn’t see much. 3 days later I got a call from my OB office to come in and talk and they sat me down and explained a “blighted ovum” or a “missed miscarriage” it is referred to. They said the radiologist who had reviewed it initially was wrong and that it was not normal. The blighted ovum happens with 50% of miscarriages. Where your body thinks you are still pregnant, but the pregnancy has actually ended and the future fetus has stopped growing.

Ironically I had so much of my own research on this specific topic from the time of my first ultrasound at 6 weeks when the yolk was just appearing but nothing else in the sack.

I ended up going the pill route. They pushed for that which made me uneasy but I felt better than going into surgery. It has been an insanely long process since I took the pills over two months ago and my body is still trying to get back on track as far as my cycle and hormones.

The cramping I experienced with the pills was more aggressive than my normal menstrual cramps and it lasted for 6 hours. I had to do a second round a week later to ensure the rest of my tissue was out. Passing all the important tissue was unnoticeable at that point because the sac was still maybe an inch long.

I did have other tissue come out as well, like a jelly like substance that was the size of a golf ball, but again barely noticed as it passed due to its consistency. I will be switching offices after all of this because of how poorly my situation was handled and how unprepared they left me for the entire duration of my pregnancy and the time after the “ pills”

I hope this helps.

@rosepipe,

Hi again! What determined a second dose was needed? Did you get a US done after the first one? My doctor initially wasn't going to do an US to make sure everything passed through but I requested it and now she's saying there's still some possible tissue showing and asked if I wanted a D&C. Im conflicted..I don't want to do another round of medication because it seems like at this point it's just being pushed or If this is common

I have a blighted ovum. had 2 US and both showed empty sac measuring 5w4d when I was supposed to be 7wks. I started brown spotting June 8 and I spotted for about 4 days brown then rust then pink then red. I am now on day 10 and it comes and goes but is very light now, with almost zero cramps anymore. I had cramping and passed clots for about 2 days this past weekend so around a week after I started spotting. Im not sure about your report that is confusing. I got the pills from my OB but I didn't take them since I started actively miscarrying shortly after my follow up.

I actually got the pill today and am currently MC as I type this.

So far, have been experiencing heavy bleeding, passing clots, and lower back pain.

@bbylovechels,

did they prescribe oral pills or did your physician have to insert them? I'm seeing online where either you or your physician has to insert them vagin*lly and fewer mention orally

@Amgx,

I inserted the pills vagin*lly myself at home. My doctor said I could take them orally but that is more likely to cause nausea.

@Amgx,

sorry for the late response. My bleeding stopped right before I ovulated (about 3 weeks after the pill) and I just tested positive again after testing negative two weeks ago. ��

That is an odd report I would ask for clarification. I had a blighted ovum in March and a molar pregnancy was never mentioned. I took the pill for my lighter ovum and it was not painful at all but I did bleed more than I expected and passed some rather large clots. But again, it was not painful.
