Am I definitely miscarrying?

(94 Posts)


I am about 6 weeks, over the weekend had brown mucous discharge, this gradually increased and on Monday was spotting blood.
I had a scan at EPU who saw a heartbeat and said all was well.
However today bleeding has got heavier, like the start of a period, with some small clots.
Feeling pretty despondent, assuming its over. I am going in for a scan tomorrow morning to see what has happened.
Any advice?


BigW Tue 21-Jan-14 20:08:36

I don't know, but I didn't want to read and run. Please don't be too despondent, I know people who have had bleeding the whole way through their pregnancy and everything has been fine. Fingers firmly crossed for you. flowers

FlossieTreadlight Tue 21-Jan-14 20:10:03

I'm really sorry you're going through this. Rather unhelpfully I've experienced exactly the same thing twice - one resulted in a MC, the second is upstairs with chickenpox. I really hope you have good news tomorrow x

Thankyou both.
I know I will have to wait for a definitive answer in the morning. Its hard not to Google...

Sorry to hear that - it is horrible being in limbo and fearing the worst. I bled for 6 weeks with my DS2, and thought every day I was losing him, but he was fine. I've also had it go the other way sad
I hope you get good news tomorrow.


Sadly it was not good news. No heartbeat.
Just waiting for the inevitable now.

bakingtins Wed 22-Jan-14 12:32:52

Oh I'm sorry chick sad Hole up with big pads and painkillers ready, wine, chocolate and lots of hugs. Plenty of us here to listen whenever you need us.

FlossieTreadlight Wed 22-Jan-14 15:58:11

I'm so sorry to hear that x

miserywaterfall Wed 22-Jan-14 16:42:58

So sorry to hear your bad news. xx

I have had quite a lot of heavy bleeding, passing clots and various lumpy bits (!). Also strong period type pain.
Bleeding seems to have subsided a bit now. Could the worst be over or am I just being hopeful?
I was only 6 weeks or so, so not a lot to come away.

BigW Wed 22-Jan-14 21:04:26

I'm so sorry to hear that Chick. Wine, chocolates and hugs, like baking said and we're here if you need us flowers

So sorry Op for your miscarriage. I hope you recover soon. Be kind to yourself.

Horsie and Sally - you should be ashamed of yourselves. I hope you are never in the OP's position - and that if you are, you are treated a whole lot better than you have treated her.

I have had two losses at 6 weeks, an they were heartbreaking. Also started just like you said.

Noitsachicken, I'm so sorry, make sure you rest up, take your time and look after yourself, I was there last year sad don't rush to get back to normal, be gentle.

Dillydollydaydream Thu 23-Jan-14 13:13:25

Sorry. chicken I had an early mc and the bleeding went on for a good 7 days, quite a lot of cramping too.
A hot water bottle, cocodamol, blanket on the sofa watching a box set with chocolate helps.

All the best x

champagnegoldfinch Thu 23-Jan-14 13:13:37

Oh chicken, so sorry for your loss. Be kind to yourself.

ThedementedPenguin Thu 23-Jan-14 13:15:10

chicken I am so sorry that you are going through this. I can't even imagine how you are feeling and then to have those two come on and say those horrible things.

I really wish you didn't have to see that. Hope you are keeping well. Hugs x

tertle Thu 23-Jan-14 13:18:20

So sorry for you loss OP. Can only echo others' comments; be kind to yourself and take your time.

Goes without saying really but I have also reported the above comments.

Take care OP.

Keenoonvino Thu 23-Jan-14 13:18:28

First time reporting a post. Disgusting.

OP, I am sending you many hugs. I understand what a horrible time it is XX

Prettykitty111 Thu 23-Jan-14 13:18:36

Chicken. I know it's hard but try not to panic. My housemate had this at about 8 weeks. Cue panicked rush to hospital and all was well, she's now got two beautiful boys and both had period like bleeding throughout pregnancy. apparently some women will have a small bleed regularly through their pregnancy. A heartbeat is a really positive sign

pigletmania Thu 23-Jan-14 13:18:47

Sally and horsey you are scum of the earth, chicken ignore those vile idiots they are not wrth it. Ask mumsnet to delete this treads it's attracting pond life

Given the op has seen the posts there's not quite as much urgency to delete.
those two posters only seem to have posted on one other thread each, which was in feminism and was about how much they enjoy masturbation. So I think it's all very clearthat they are juzt nasty little internet vviruses

Thanks everyone. I have a toddler so can't rest too much! I have a friend coming round soon so not on my own.
I think the worst is over and don't feel too bad today.

Reported. So sorry for what you are going through OP flowers

Crusoe Thu 23-Jan-14 13:20:04

Op I am so sorry. I had a very traumatic mc 7 years ago. Just heartbreaking. Take care of yourself.

SnowieBear Thu 23-Jan-14 13:20:09

chicken, I am so, so sorry... I have no words. I lost a much wanted baby over a year ago to MC and my heart broke.

I've reported the excuses for a human being that thought this was good trolling ground.

They've been playing in the feminism topic too. Only there it's merely predictable crap as opposed to offensive.

pigletmania Thu 23-Jan-14 13:20:53

Big hugs op flowers cake brew look after yoursef sweetxxx

DownstairsMixUp Thu 23-Jan-14 13:21:12

Sorry your going through this op. It DOES get easier to deal with I promise. Be kind to yourself. X

stickysausages Thu 23-Jan-14 13:21:53

So sorry for your loss sad

Look after yourself, and please get checked over if you feel unwell or have any symptoms you're unsure of etc.

MarshaBrady Thu 23-Jan-14 13:22:05

Glad they've been deleted. Hope you are ok chickens.

sewingandcakes Thu 23-Jan-14 13:22:15

Sorry for your loss OP thanks

Idiots like that are a tiny minority thankfully.

eurochick Thu 23-Jan-14 13:22:34

I'm sorry for what you are going through, and also sorry that some of the hard of thinking brigade have posted on this thread.

I mc'd a 6 week foetus (but at 8 weeks - it was a mmc) and bled for 2 weeks in total. Only a couple of really bad days on which clots were pouring out of me and then about a week and a half of something similar to a period. So you might well have more to come. I just wanted you to be prepared. If there is a clot blocking the cervix that will slow things down temporarily.

Bowlersarm Thu 23-Jan-14 13:23:01

Reported as well.

thanksOP, sorry you are going through this.

Pretty sure those posters are sad 40 year old men with nothing better to do than troll Mumsnet.

I am so sorry to hear your news Chicken, I have been following you on our antenatal board with my fingers crossed. thanks

NakedTigarCub Thu 23-Jan-14 13:23:17

Sorry op ((((((hugs)))))))))

Bubblegoose Thu 23-Jan-14 13:26:46

Looks like the good people outweigh the fuckwits on this thread. Isn't MN wonderful?

Topaz25 Thu 23-Jan-14 13:28:09

I am so sorry for your loss, thinking of you at this difficult time. When I had a miscarriage I found really helpful.

Shellywelly1973 Thu 23-Jan-14 13:29:29

Sending you hugs & best wishes op. x x x

MummaMeerkat Thu 23-Jan-14 13:30:49

Noitsachicken i'm so sorry for your loss

Cruze Thu 23-Jan-14 13:34:17

I am so so sorry for your loss.
Well done for ignoring the vile cretins you are a stronger person than I would have been at the time. I found having a toddler at the time of my last MC really helped. I took a couple of weeks off work and threw myself into giving her the best 2 weeks I could. Did lots of things, made sure I was out of the house & her smiles really got me through the worst part. I promise you it does get easier. Look after yourself x

Scholes34 Thu 23-Jan-14 13:36:04

What helped me through, was being told by the doctors that a miscarriage frequently happens for good reason - ie, it's your body's way of dealing with something that's not as it should be. It stopped me dwelling on what might have been, and on the original due date I didn't make, I was actually visiting the delivery suite a few months before DD (ie the subsequent pregnancy) was due.

ChippingInWadesIn Thu 23-Jan-14 13:41:43

I am so sorry chick sad so very sorry x

I am also sorry you had to read what those idiots posted, but I'm glad you can see that they were just trolling fuckwits.

(Prettykitty111 do posters the decency of reading a thread before posting when it is a serious thread. The OP updated more than 24 hours before you posted)

itsnotthateasy Thu 23-Jan-14 13:52:44

Very true Scholes34 ,, So sorry to hear of your loss OP.

Re the Trolls and their comments . . best way to deal with those types is to completely ignore them , do not feed . .. . Report away but don't mention it , ,they hate being ignored..

LouiseSmith Thu 23-Jan-14 14:28:13

So sorry for your loss. sad xx

I'm so sorry, my page didn't load all the comments!

I'm so so sorry for your loss, try to rest as much as you can xxxx

Thankyou everyone for your lovely comments and support.

Honestly the trolls have not affected me, I wouldn't give them the satisfaction!

I'll pop back across to the TTC boards soon. Obviously I am gutted by this m/c but going to try to chalk it up to experience and get on with it.
I know many more women than me have been and will go through this many more times. I am lucky enough to have a healthy DS, I know many others don't.
