    Blighted ovum?

    At 5w 4d, was grocery shopping and felt dizzy. Severe pain, gush of blood. The ultrasound at the ER showed a gestational sac but no fetal pole or yolk sac. Bleeding stopped and mouth of uterus was closed, so they sent me home to follow up in a few days.

    They are saying it's probably a blighted ovum, and it might be because of my hyperparathyroidism (causing high blood calcium; had surgery for this in 2011 but it's apparently recurring). I am devastated.

    Following up tomorrow with a high-risk ob/gyn. I am so afraid to hope for the best, because even if this were a viable pregnancy now, it could still be undermined by the hypercalcemia.

    Has anyone had a blighted ovum/ anembryonic pregnancy? If so, how did you cope?
