I'm at a loss...

I am 8 weeks preg on Sunday. I went on Thur for my first sono, and it has happened for the 2nd time since last preg in Dec, a blighted ovum. All that is present is a yolk sac:( I am devastated. Last d&c was done early jan. Testing showed no chromosomal abnormalities. I met with the OB after the sono. She said it could be implantation into the uterus. The tech asked if I had a clotting issue. I asked he OB and she said she will run labs for it, but she doubts it as I have had two healthy preg's before. My questions are 1) could having a second d&c only months apart pose any risks? 2) if I do have a mthfr gene mutation, is it possible that it could lay dormant for years and just now become an issue. I assume this is not something that is reviewed with your first prenatal labs, correct? Does a gene mutation cause a possible spleen enlargement- since I have that going on still? G
