Empty Gestational Sac

Hi Moms out there! This would be my 3rd pregnancy and I had my 1st prenatal check up yesterday. My LMP was Feb. 7,2020 so the EDD should be Nov. 13 however, due to a brownish discharge last Monday night and yesterday morning, I rushed to the hospital immediately. Good thing they have an OB Gyne clinic opened. Based on my TVS, I have an empty gestational sac for 6 weeks and 4 days which is contrary with the calculation on my LMP. The OB Sonologist advised me for a repeat TVS after 2 weeks to validate if the embryo is already viable that time but if not, my OB told me that it could be a possible blighted ovum which will lead to a possible 70% miscarriage. When the time she said that, I just sat down in a corner and cried silently. Dont know what to do or what to think. But, she precribed duphaston for the light brownish discharge which is already a slight bleeding. I want to know if I have similar cases out there and if after 2 weeks, the baby will be viable that time already. Thank you. Still have that hope.

I experienced blighted ovum last Nov. 2019, that's when I did my ultrasound lab. The OB advised me to bed rest for 2weeks and come back again for another ultrasound but it turned out the same. Empty gestational sac. Then the hospital prescribed me a medicine for inserts kase hindi ako pede iraspa. Dahil super closed ang cervix ko that time. And Dec. 17 lumabas un I dunno if that was my placenta kase super laki and parang bag sya.

How many weeks are you based on your LMP? Usually that should match or at least near the date of your baby's gestational age.
