I am so sorry that your pregnancy did not progress normally. For those who may not know what you have just experienced, here is a little background on blighted ovum from the American Pregnancy Association:
A blighted ovum (also known as “anembryonic pregnancy”) happens when a fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine wall, but the embryo does not develop. Cells develop to form the pregnancy sac, but not the embryo itself. A blighted ovum occurs within the first trimester, often before a woman knows she is pregnant. A high level of chromosome abnormalities usually causes a woman’s body to naturally miscarry.
You did not abort a child since no child formed. You simply had your uterus emptied of the placenta and gestational sac. This is a miscarriage, not an induced abortion.
It is my sincere hope that your next pregnancy goes as planned. Thank you for standing up for our unborn children. They desperately need you.
