Hi ladies, I also had a mmc in December and it was awful wasn't in the Christmas spirt at all! No I can say I'm happily pregnant and got my 20 week scan on Monday, so please just have faith and remember as heather said the statistics on miscarriage is quite common upto 12 weeks. Hopefully we will be seeing you soon, good luck xx

Really sorry to hear both of your news:-( I went through this in November and it was awful. I had a good cry and spent 3 days on the sofa feeling sorry myself and then had to get back to things. I did fall pregnant again a few weeks later so there is definitely hope! And early miscarriages are way more common than you think so unfortunately just one of those things xx

Hey chicken - thought I'd let you know - I don't know if your even checking this thread anymore - but I was sent to hospital again today and it turns out i miscarried over the weekend. Hope your feeling better after your miscarriage. I'm not really feeling anything cause I didn't really have time to get used to the idea before I started being in pain. Hope your okay xx

Oh no Lacey, try and stay positive, its a good sign that your hcg levels have doubled. Just try and take it easy for the next few weeks and get them to book you another scan soon x

Laceym1987 Sat 14-Jun-14 11:29:30

Hey hun it was good news at the hospital yesterday, hcg levels had doubled. But today in a lot of pain and bleeding again so I'm not sure how much longer I'll be staying pregnant sad x

Laceym1987 Fri 13-Jun-14 16:35:44

Well here's hoping chicken x

Laceym1987 Fri 13-Jun-14 15:50:31

Hi hun I am so so so sorry to hear that. I know that doesn't help and if I get negative results it'll be the last thing I want to hear. I hope your okay x

seema87 Fri 13-Jun-14 14:16:40

I really hope you had better news than me Lacey x

seema87 Fri 13-Jun-14 14:15:34

Thanks Sarah, the midwife just called, its a miscarriage. At least now I know, I can move forward.

SarahF77 Fri 13-Jun-14 12:28:51

Seema there should definitely be visible heartbeat at 7 weeks. Very sorry.

seema87 Fri 13-Jun-14 12:05:03

Just had mine done, back home now waiting for the results..

Laceym1987 Fri 13-Jun-14 10:46:13

Hey hun im having bloods redone today to compare as well. Let us know how you get on. Good luck xx

seema87 Thu 12-Jun-14 20:15:25

Thanks everyone else for your responses. Yes I think you might be right Boogles, the fact that there was nothing on the scan at 7 weeks is what makes me think it probably won't be good news tomorrow, but until I've had it confirmed I can't help but hope..!

seema87 Thu 12-Jun-14 20:10:47

Its not an odd question at all Lacey, before the heavy bleed, the blood was brownish and after the heavy bleed 2 days ago, its been red light bleeding like the last couple days of a period.

Boogles91 Thu 12-Jun-14 19:30:59

Sorry stupid fone pressed the button!....after i had gone thay stage the bleeding seemed to calm.down and my symptoms slowly dissapeared. I hope this isnt the case for you, but at 7wks a fetal pole should definatly be seen

Boogles91 Thu 12-Jun-14 19:27:51

Retained priducts can make ur hcg leves and a positive still come out. When i had a mc it was the same. I new baby had already gone but fella and fanily refused to bileve i was made to do a test and everything wich showed a strong positive, and i still felt very pregnant. Iwaited a week after bleedung started then it git really realy heavy and excrutiating pains in lower tum. After that i passed two likul 9wk baby (was told when it happened to wash whatever came out just to be sure)

Laceym1987 Thu 12-Jun-14 19:24:42

I have had increasing symptoms; boobs are still sore and increased feeling sick but I'm trying not to read too much into it and get my hopes up. I had another bleed this evening. Can I ask what colour blood your bleeding? I know that's an odd questions...

buggerboooo Thu 12-Jun-14 19:12:50

I had lots of cramps and slight bleeding. A scan showed all was well. Hope thats the case for you guys

Heatherbell1978 Thu 12-Jun-14 19:09:35

I too went into A&E as it happened on a Sunday and was sent home to phone EPU first thing Monday. That night was awfulsad EPU were reluctant to see me at first but I managed to persuade them as I was due to be flying to London for a few days with work and I didn't want to go if I was miscarrying (obviously). Obviously it didn't end great for me with that pregnancy but I really count my blessings that it happened early enough that there were no complications and I fell pregnant again the next month (without having a period in between). Text book pregnancy so far although I was pretty nervous for first 12 wks. Hope everything goes well for you x

seema87 Thu 12-Jun-14 18:56:29

Thanks Heather, the doctor at a&e did tell me that everything looked good from my hormone levels, but the heavy bleeding and clotting happened about an hour after that..I guess all I can do is wait and see. Congrats on your pregnancy, hope everything goes well x

Heatherbell1978 Thu 12-Jun-14 18:38:38

I'm currently 31 wks pregnant but had a m/c in November when I was 6 wks (got pregnant again immediately). Your situations sound similar to mine in that I started getting cramps, then bleeding and a few blood clots. I went to the EPU the day after it started and they confirmed on a scan that I had a sac but no baby so it looked like everything stopped around 4 wks. I should add that my hormone levels that day were already very low (can't remember number) and my symptoms had pretty much stopped. So if your hormone levels are still high enough and your symptoms still there I wouldn't lose hope just yet x

seema87 Thu 12-Jun-14 18:32:19

Hi Lacey,
Looks like we're in the same position, although I've had no cramping or pain. My hcg levels were 740 and likewise they couldn't confirm anything. It's just really difficult not knowing.. I think for you at 5 weeks, maybe it is too early to see anything in a scan. Do you feel like you could still be pregnant? I really hope it works out for us both tomorrow. X

Laceym1987 Thu 12-Jun-14 17:56:53

Hi there

I am going through a similar thing and am 5 weeks pregnant had terrible stabbing and cramping pains and bleeding for the last 4 days which came and went. I went to A&E yesterday and pregnancy test came back positive and internal exam said my cervix was still closed but had blood around it. Then I had an ultrasound done which didn't show any signs of a pregnancy and hgc blood levels were at 580 which they couldn't confirm anything on and so I'm back tomorrow to do more for them to compare. I'm praying for the best and preparing for the worst after all of the conflicting results I can't do anymore. How high were your hgc levels? X

seema87 Thu 12-Jun-14 17:43:55

Hi,
I'm hoping I can get some advice/ reassurance.. I'm 7 weeks pregnant and have been spotting for the last 2 weeks, 2 days ago the bleeding became heavy and I felt 2 large clots fall out (sorry tmi..!) I had a scan yesterday after being referred to the EPAU by a&e, both external and internal scans showed signs of pregnancy but no baby. The midwife said its either too early to see the baby or I've lost it.. They took bloods yesterday and will again tomorrow to compare hcg levels, to find out if I am still pregnant. I just feel like I'm in limbo, I'm preparing for the worst but I can't help but hope because I still feel pregnant. I also took a pregnancy test today which showed a strong positive.
