I have just returned from the hospital, at 7w + 6d, after being told I had a non viable pregnancy and only product of conception could be seen. I know many ladies have had far worse experiences but I feel so sad. I had a small bleed no pain but went to just make sure. I have 4 wonderful children, this little one was a lovely 40th birthday surprise!I now have been told to wait for nature to take its course. Does anybody have any advice as to what I should expect? Thank you so much x
So sorry for you. I was officially 7 weeks, although I think the pregnancy ended a week or so before. I started bleeding on Thursday, and it hasn't been particularly heavy, I had an evening of quite strong cramps, but it's all settled down now. I'm just emotionally useless now. <<holds Celosia's hand>>
Thanks Saggy - I'm sorry for you too. After 4 healthy pregnancies I'm so shocked that this has happened. I'm now clutching at straws because I found my gynea letter which puts me back a week - I'm hoping the doc just missed the little one on the scan. I've been googling like mad, crazy I know!
I hope you can begin to very slowly get on - it must be very hard I know. Big hugs xx
Moving over to this thread now! I always thought the 'product' was the baby. I'm absolutely no expert but I think that when they tell you you've miscarried it is either because they can't see a heartbeat (in which case you could get them to look again at a later date) or because they can see the embryo but it is clearly not normal and not going to develop. What exactly did they say? Do you have a number you could call in the morning?
I'm driving my DH nuts showing him possible evidence that the doc was wrong. The docs words were "at this stage I should see at least see something but there is nothing - apart from,I would think, product of conception. At this stage, I would say this is a non viable pregnancy". That was it. I've only had bloods done once which put me a week behind where I thought I was.
I have an appt at 8.30am tomorrow - I'm just going crazy now and want to go tomorrow feeling string that they need to do more tests!!!!!
Good luck for tomorrow - ask them very plainly what you've said here. I remember asking (after numerous appointments / scans) "but is there any chance it could still develop into a normal pregnancy?". The answer was no but I felt relieved that I knew for sure and could start to move on.
