Hi

Does anyone have any stories to share re the clear blue weeks indicator? I got 2-3 last week when it should have been 3+ but I put that down to late ovulation. I did speak to my GP about this and he said not to really trust it. However this morning I've just got 1-2 so looks like levels are dropping.

Thanks I would just like to know either way.

I've just had some brown discharge so think it's the beginning of the end to be honest.

Hi, I didn't want to leave your thread unanswered, though my experience of similar wasn't positive I'm afraid.
I have twice had a clear blue indicator test come up fewer weeks pregnant than I should have been, and though my GP also said that these tests just sometimes aren't accurate, both times I went on to miscarry. I felt I would have felt more prepared mentally if she had said MC was a possibility in the circumstances .
With the second MC the reading dropped from2-3 weeks to 1-2 weeks a couple of days before I started to bleed.
Can you self refer to your EPAU or do you need your gp to refer you for a scan to check?
I've also previously had some bleeding with a pregnancy that progressed normally and resulted in DC3 .

Hi

Thanks for replying. Yes I can self refer and will do in the morning. I would rather just know ASAP although because I'm only just 6 weeks I'm not sure a scan will be conclusive.

For anyone reading the thread in the future.. I had bloods at the Hosp this morning and the HCG level was only 129. They'll repeat on Tuesday but most definitely a miscarriage.

Hi cheekychick. Keeping my fingers crossed for Tuesday.
Katand2kiys, two weeks ago I had a test 1-2 weeks, its my first time (late starter, I'm 38). Although that was really early I could tell something had changed and we are trying (for well over a year) I was so excited, but the very next day I started bleeding.
14 days later I still haven't stopped bleeding. It's not really really heavy but the blood is bright red and constant. How long did it last for you?
Dr doesn't seem too worried about that, but has given me orders to rest up as I've now got a respiratory virus and which is not getting any better.

Hi champion. Unfortunately my bloods on Tuesday confirmed miscarriage. I'm bleeding properly as well now.

I'm feeling fairly positive about next time though - once bleeding stops then I can look forward again.

Hope it's not bad news for you although I'm afraid it doesn't sound too good. Hope you feel better wth the virus as well.

I'm sorry to hear that. Yep, my pregnancy dream was up when the bleeding started, I knew that.
But, In a way it's good news. We thought we couldn't conceive, and though it failed this time, we are hopeful. Once this bleeding stops I'm getting back on it, and plan to be fitter and healthier than ever!
Keep me posted on your progress, looks like we're on a similar time frame. X

Ah there is a blessing in disguise - ithought I wouldn't conceive for ages and it happened quickly so I am counting my blessings on that front. I'm on the TTC after miscarriage thread. Lovely support group and its fine to join even though we are going through miscarriage currently. Xx
