Pregnancy After A Blighted Ovum... chances!!

I had a blighted ovum diagnosed at 10 weeks but only measured 7 weeks and 2 days in June 2015. I just found out i will be 7 weeks pregnant on Wednesday coming. I am terrified of another blighted ovum. And didnt want to tell anyone but they all guessed as i wouldnt let their dogs near my stomach or i wanted things i never liked before. 

The reason i took a test was because I had a brown discharge that lasted for literally an hour and then went a way. the first test i did was negative and i did one two days later and it was darker than the control line. Since 5 weeks pregnant i have had bad morning sickness, constantly feeling sick and being sick mabye 4-5 times a day. 

With the blighted ovum pregnancy I never had any symptoms just peed more and sore boobs. I am so scared and the Early Pregnancy Clinic will not refer me for an early scan. 

Will it be more than likely this pregnancy will be okay ?


  • A very close friend of mine had a blighted ovum, and has since gone on to have two perfectly fine pregnancies (and two terribly naughty little girls!) so try not to panic! Good luck x

  • in dec 2015 I suffered from a blighted ovum also. It was the most heartbreaking thing I've ever gone through and was desperate to get preg again. On Tuesday I took a test and it said positive. I am also scared of this happening again but I get told you have just as good a chance this pregnancy running smoothly. Good luck ☺️

  • just an update i have had 3 scans and went to wmidwifes yesterday and heard a very strong heart beat , got  told not to worry and i am going to be 16 weeks on sunday so it does not always have to happen again
