You may not have had any of the usual signs of miscarriage, such as pain or bleeding.
Sadly, it's then that something goes wrong, and the pregnancy doesn't continue.
It may be that an embryo didn't develop at all and the pregnancy sac is empty, which is called a blighted ovum.
The devastating news of ‘miscarriage’ comes as quite a shock.
In a situation of missed miscarriage, it would be quite common for the woman to attend a normal prenatal checkup thinking everything is just fine, only to find out that her baby is gone, and may have been gone for some time.
Your body may still be giving you signals that you are pregnant, though if your hormone levels are falling, those signs may lessen slightly.
Your breasts may feel less tender, or you may find your pregnancy sickness has stopped sooner than expected.
The first time you are aware that anything is wrong may be when you have your first ultrasound scan.
Hi all, I have never posted on a forum before and I am not sure what I'm looking for on here, perhaps comfort with confirmation that others believe my decisions are being guided by good advice.
This is called a blighted ovum (anembryonic pregnancy).
Or it may be that an embryo started to grow, but then stopped growing.
Though the baby has been gone, the body has continued in some or all symptoms of pregnancy.
