Possible Miscarriage

(79 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

Thank you.. She had her second set of boots fitted yesterday. She's doing commando crawling at the moment and can even do it now with the boots and bars smile. The Physio is very happy with her progress. Her left hand needs to stretch the tendons more and she is very 'right' orientated at the moment. It's amazing that we have this lovely beautiful baby when just a year ago we were fearing so much for the future and had no idea what the future would bring. I'm adding a recent phot of her smile

So happy to read your updates Vince. And such a beautiful baby! I hope you've all had a magical Christmas.

Quick Update everyone. Thanks for kind wishes.. She's doing really well.. In boots and bars about 16 hours a day at the moment. She has cracked my knee with her bar as she wasn't happy with the amount of milk we were giving her.she's very lively!. Her wrists are loosening all the time as well. What a difference from a year ago!!

Have just read this through and wanted to add my congratulations and best wishes to you all. Total rollercoaster but she looks full of spark and mischief smile Hope the physical stuff continues to go well.

Little one is adapting well to boots and bars! In fact she has almost broken my hand a few times when she's been a bit happy and bashing her legs down! Our furniture isn't fairing much better either! We were supposed to go onto the 12 hours on and 12 hours off on the bars but Surgeon has asked us to delay for 6 months. Disappointed but apparently her correction is 'perfect' and she wants it to stay that way!

Couldn't just read and go - Absolutely over the moon for you, and now in tears! smile

I have read this entire thread with tears in my eyes. I'm so pleased for you!!

vinceb Thu 26-Jun-14 15:08:37

Quick Update...
She's 3 months old today smile Little cookie bundle of joy. On her 5th cast and feet almost straight. Only 4.7kg but happily drinking 180ml at a time. Hungry baby.

Heart mumur is gone
Hip scan was clear
Operation to release tendon in a couple of weeks and then boots and bars.

She happily chirps away and is developing a real personality (i.e only happy when being carried air-plane style)

60 mils a feed is huge for a tiny newborn! I really hope you see a lactation consultant, a baby that age has only the stomach capacity of about 15mls.

Just read the whole thread, what a roller coaster you and your wife have been on. I'm so pleased for you that baby is well. Many congratulations to you all and best of luck with the weight issue all the best for the future.

vinceb Tue 01-Apr-14 13:54:25

Quick update.. we spent 12 hours back home before community midwives had us readmitted as she has lost 17% of her birth weight (2.9kg down to 2.4). We've had to go to pumping milk and trying to supplement but she doesn't want to drink 60ml at a feed. Otherwise she is ok and doing poopy nappies and also wee. She is also getting a bit more used to the physio. She'll be weighed again tomorrow and hopefully there will be signs of an improvement.

After reading i just want to say congratualtions and glad you have got your little bundle of joy at last after such a worrying pregnancy. X

Congratulations! What journey, I really hope your wife is enjoying her first Mother's day. Such a lovely read thanks

Fantastic news, huge congrats Vince! Welcome to your new world!

vinceb Fri 28-Mar-14 17:17:58

Sorry. Meant heart murmur not great murmur.

vinceb Fri 28-Mar-14 17:06:11

Little one has been discharged. She has little great murmur but that is fairly common. One day into her physio exercises and her wrists are freeing up more. Feet and ankles will need more work. Have to say that the hospital have been amazing. I doubt we would have got better care anywhere else in the world. Thank you everyone for your supportive words. Have helped a great deal. I'll update this thread with news of that is ok. Vince
