Hi everyone,

Hubby and I have been trying for a baby for a while, so I’ve been tracking my period/ovulation as well via an app.

The first day of my LMP was on the 18th January, so technically by the time I went for my first dating scan on the 5th March I should have been 6 weeks + 5 days.
At my U/S (ultrasound) we saw the gestational sac (which was around 4.5mm) but nothing else. We didn’t think anything of it as the man just told us we must have our dates wrong and to come back in 2 weeks time.

Fast forward to last Wednesday, when we met our lovely midwife for a first time meeting. After showing her my scan results, she told me that she didn’t want to scare me but that there was a chance that it could be the wrong dates or something called a Blighted Ovum. Which now after googling it has put me into a right spin.

I definitely have been really really tired since about week 3 of pregnancy and haven’t had morning sickness but just more of a yucky feeling in my stomach where I want to eat something to make it go away. My breasts have also gone up a cup size and are really tender. I haven’t had any spotting/bleeding as well.

Being our first pregnancy, I’m so incredibly worried as I’ve become so attached to the little blob inside me.

Would love to hear your thoughts and any guidance. Should I be worried about not having morning sickness? Should I be going by my ovulation date instead of my LMP?

Thank you in advance.
