Married my BEST FRIEND on December 1, 2007. Started TTC in March 2008. Found out we were expecting our first child in October 2008 - but had a m/c in December 2008 - resulting in a d&e. Met with a RE in May 2009 and set a plan - but conceived unexpectedly on our own! Our precious little Sophia was born on February 9, 2010! Lilypie Third Birthday tickers

Re: chances of repeat blighted ovum

  • I'm worried about this myself.  I'm 6w3d & will have my first u/s this Tuesday.  It was a horrible experience last time to see the empty screen. We've been extremely reserved with this pregnancy, cautiously hoping for the best.  

     I couldn't find any stats on repeated B.O.'s, but I have heard that it can happen more than once.  Hopefully, neither of us will go through this again.  Hugs and prayers!

  • I don't know the exact statistics, but I read it's unlikely to happen again. I had a blighted ovum last summer, and my doctor said he thought it was just a "fluke." Now I'm pregnant again and there's definitely a baby in there! Good luck!

  • My m/c was a blighted ovum and there is DEFINITELY a baby in there this time!! I know that there is a chance of it happening again, but it is very rare and the chances are extremely slim. GL!!!

  • I had my dd with no problems getting pregnant or with my pregnancy then just had 2 BO's and we are currently ttc again. I had a bunch of testing done and low progesterone was found so I take prometrium now, baby aspirin, folic acid and prenatal vitamin daily.GL
  • I asked this question after my D&C.  I was told that since the pathology report came back clean then the chances of a repeat were very small.  He actually said the % was less than it would be for a woman who had never had one. 


  • I've heard that you're no more likely to have a second one as you were to have a first one. I know that's no help. When we were very first diagnosed with a mc at the ER, the dr. thought is was a BO (later found out it wasn't) but, he did say that the chances of 1 woman having 2 or more BOs is very rare!

    Breathe! These little babies are on their way to Feb!!!
