The Gestational Age Is 10 Months But There Is No Fetal Heartbeat?
morning. I want to ask. Yesterday, my menstruation was 2 months late. because my cycle is not routine. then I felt signs of pregnancy because I was curious but the result + night I checked it from the age of 10 weeks. but there was no baby’s heartbeat. I was given boosters and vitamins and was ordered to have another 2 weeks of checkup. because I was curious and afraid that I finally checked with another dr. and this second dr immediately sentenced BO. and asked to curette. I’m still afraid to find the third dr. because the second dr sentenced him so. I am waiting for the schedule to the first dr. only every day I am worried about what I ask. I have an irregular menstrual period. Can you predict the wrong date? and I happen to have a thick stomach, what does it affect too? because I don’t have spots, but I feel like my stomach often twitches. And before I found out I was pregnant I was lazy to eat what did that affect huh? please info. thank you
Hello Tika, Thank you for the question.
Blighted ovum is a pregnancy that occurs after successful fertilization but does not contain an embryo / future fetus even though the pregnancy is in the uterus. This condition generally occurs as a result of a chromosomal abnormality that causes the embryo to not develop. Women with blighted ovum will experience the same signs of pregnancy as pregnancy in general. Blighted ovum is not caused by lazy eating. To make sure the obstetrician needs to do an ultrasound to see if the pregnancy sac has an embryo or not.
The first day of last menstruation (HPHT) is generally used as a reference for determining gestational age. If you do not remember the HPHT correctly, the prediction of gestational age may not be correct. But the estimated gestational age can also be determined by ultrasound, by measuring the size of the gestational sac and other visible structures.
It is true that the ultrasound examination is influenced by the skill of the doctor and the thickness of the body fat. Therefore, one doctor's examination is not necessarily 100% the same as another doctor's examination. You can wait for the scheduled control with the first obstetrician to make sure you are calmer. If indeed the doctor also confirms that this is a blighted ovum, the doctor will suggest further action.
