Customer Question
Hi my wife Is currently...
Hi my wife Is currently pregnant with our third child she had a blighted ovum in january she went and had an ultrasound today and they said she was only four weeks pregnant? how is this possible. We made love may 21st and may 22nd but I can remember when after that or even if we did. She thinks she ovulated on may 22nd. How can this be possible? The ultrasound showed a small sack and measured at her only being 4 weeks pregnant she has irregualr periods and the may 3rd period was the first period since her blighted ovum. Can you tell us what could be going on and when she concieved and her due date. She had her hcg levels taken on the 18th and they were at 100 and said she was barely pregnant. Need advice badly any additional advice would be helpful

i'm not sure to be honest I think so but cant say for certain she didnt get a period for june and she didnt get a positive home pregnanct test until june 16th blood test confirmed on the 18th and her hcg levels were 100
Health Professional: Dr. Owen, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Hello,
But, with HCG level of 100 on the 18th of June - then 10 days later, the HCG level should be at least 2500 to about 5000 - and this would put your wife at around 5 to 6 weeks pregnant - so for now, repeating the ultrasound and the HCG level is recommended.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
