Possible Miscarriage

(77 Posts)

Hi Everyone... Looking for a bit of advice.

My wife and myself have been trying to get pregnant for 6 years and were having no luck. We went through one cycle of IVF and despite everything looking positive something went wrong with the embryo transfer. Those 2 weeks were hell but we decided to keep trying the natural method.

Yesterday the Mrs tried a pregnancy test and it came out positive with a +3 weeks and we were overjoyed as we had tried everything.

She then said this morning that she had passed blood clots and some light bleeding. It's about time for her normal period and we're not sure if it's the first signs of a miscarriage which would be completely devastating or possibly hormonal bleeding.

We're really worried as we've gone through so much and in the course of a few hours we've gone from joy to being completely gutted in a couple of hours.

Has anyone else had these symptoms and been ok?

Thank you

Vince.

My dd was born with central arthrogryposis, she was completely stiff. Her condition was probably caused due to genetic reasons, and was severe because her brain didn't form properly in the early weeks of pregnancy. None of this was picked up antenatally. She lived for 13 months and was an absolute joy to us, a real gift. (She died of respiratory failure, nothing to do with the arthrogryposis.)During her lifetime, I did lots if research on arthrogryposis, and many children manage to live full and active lives with splints and physiotherapy.

Wishing you a positive outcome at this scary time.

Cupofteaplease I am so sorry. We are going through all the range of emotions at the moment. The Mrs is medical professional and glass half empty. Luckily I am glass half full. I am keeping everything crossed that not a genetic disorder as we have already decided what we will do in this scenario. The medical teams in the various hospitals we have been to in the past week have been so amazing that it has been unbelievable.

The Rapid test results have back a clear. Baby has problems with ankles and wrists but we're hoping that the heart thing will be ok and that the full chromosone results will come back ok.

Good luck Vince. Sounds like you deserve good news!

Good news on the initial test. Good luck.

Cardiologist said heart is fine. Just the long wait for the full karyotype results. We are keeping everything crossed. Thank you all for your kind words of support.

Great! Come on baby, keep growing strong! smile

vinceb Wed 11-Dec-13 15:41:17

Still waiting for the results of the full karyotype. Keeping our fingers crossed. Little one is very active so we're hoping that things are going to be ok... apart from the help she will need when she is born.

scaredoflabour Wed 11-Dec-13 18:23:45

Good luck Vince!

Bakingtins Wed 11-Dec-13 20:14:32

Good luck. Hope the news continues to be positive.

I have just read your entire thread. What a roller coaster yoy have been on! It sounds like your outcome might be really good though. Fingers crossed for you for the full results. xxx

We got the CGH results back yesterday and they were clear.. Just waiting for the full karyotype results.. Fingers crossed.

Mabelandrose Tue 17-Dec-13 08:11:07

Good luck and lots of love

vinceb Fri 20-Dec-13 09:40:30

Full Karyotype result came back as all clear. Don't know whether to be relieved or not. There seems to be no explanation for the distal athrogryoposis. Scan and meeting with geneticist in 3 weeks. Happy that little cookie doesn't have anything genetically wrong. Fingers crossed her ankles and wrists can be treated when she is born. Thanks for all the messages of support and have a great Christmas.

dats Fri 20-Dec-13 12:09:39

Fantastic news, vince. Have a lovely Christmas, hope you both get to relax a bit! fsmile

snoozysleeper Fri 20-Dec-13 13:41:21

Good news vince best of luck and a good Christmas for yourself and your wife!

Fetal MRI from last week has come back as normal. So relieved. Mrs has found out though that she has gestational diabetes and has to be careful. Another scan on Tuesday but the little one is moving a lot.. 6 weeks before she's delivered. Just need to find somewhere to live first.

lyns31 Fri 07-Feb-14 18:44:01

Glad the mri was fine. Sorry to read that your wife has gestational diabetes. Hope the rest of the pregnancy goes as smoothly as possible.

Our dear little girl was born yesterday via C section. She has positional tallipes. More on the feet than the wrists but the physio is confident it can be fixed. Apart from that she is fine.. So happy. such a long road. Just have to fix her feet and wrists and she will be fine. But she is our darling and we would never have given her up for the world. Thank you everyone for your words of support and advice.
Vince.

Congratulations to you and Mrs vince flowers

Enjoy your little bundle, there's nothing like those first few weeks with your first baby... Savour every second.

I know a few kids with talipes and they've all done really well with surgery and physio. Best of luck x

Congratulations! What a long journey you've had to get to this point. I'm so happy things have turned out well for you.

She sounds like a little miracle. So pleased for you both.
