tbh dont think going up thier will really help il just wait till next friday and try and stay positive untill then xx

Layler, I have found that turning up in person does tend to produce results.

When you are actually standing there in front of them they do seem to find the compassion to help you.

On three different occasions (different PG's) I have been told to wait it out at home and decided to go to the EPU myself.

When I got there in person and said 'look I'm massively distressed psychologically, I can not possibly wait another week without it doing further harm to me' an appointment has been provided.

On two of these three times they actually admitted me as I needed medical treatment and if I'd waited it out at home I would have been very poorly indeed so I have learnt not to listen to the advice which seems very geared towards conserving meagre resources even when that is not always in the best interest of the patient.

Do you really think if it was your midwife who was in early pg passing clots she would wait it out for 2 weeks or demand to be scanned to find out what exactly had been passed?

I feel very angry on your behalf as they are fobbing you off.

when my mid-wife rang the epu yesterday to try get my appomimnet moved forward they said could as they need to wait 2 weeks to see what was happing soo i dont think going in is going to help tbh xx

valiumredhead Fri 23-Aug-13 10:25:47

I've always had to wait for scans even if I went to the epu . Be prepared for them not to scan you .

Armadale Fri 23-Aug-13 10:20:38

It seems incredibly cruel to make you wait 2 weeks.

I have been in this situation and it is too long, ime.

I don't know where you are but can you google to find an Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU) at a hospital near you that lets you self refer- (some do, some don't.)
I would find one, go in person, explain what has happened and asked to be scanned. They are a lot more likely to be able to scan you there than A&E.
I would go today, as early as possible, as it is much more likely to get a scan today than over the weekend.

yer it really is put just trying to stay positive untill i know for sure xx

valiumredhead Fri 23-Aug-13 09:47:10

A and e said the same to me and just to wait it out. I bleed thought my pregnancy and ds is 12 now.
