Hi, I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant on Monday, I went to a early pregnancy unit were they did a vaginal scan and also a doctor done an examination with a clear tube also with fingers (sorry for tmi) on me and the lady said everything looked fine the baby was growing fine and there was even a little heartbeat, once I got home from the scan I started to bleed this wasn't happening before I had the scan so I rang the women's hospital an they said this would be due to the scan I had an should go away in a couple of days. But as the days passed the bleeding got heavier and clots were coming out this was paired with bad cramps in my stomach and lower back, I was rushed to a&e were a doctor took bloods and tried to check my cervix but he said that there was to much blood to see it so he said he is 99% sure I've had a miscarriage. I also passed or a huge flesh like clot which he has taken away to examine, I have to go back tomorrow for a scan and I'm devastated that he says I have miscarried but is there any way he could be wrong because he couldn't properly check me? I literally seen the baby 2 days before and everything was fine, the heavy bleeding only lasted 1 days an the pain has gone down massively, I know it's very unlikely my baby will still be there but has anyone had this an there baby has survived due to the bleed being something else? I haven't had any results from bloods I'm just waiting for scan tomorrow now, thanks in advance for any help X sad

I'm sorry, hun, I think you have miscarried. flowers

I've had 3 and they've involved a lot of blood and a lot of pain.

Take it easy and get yourself straight off to the GP tomorrow who may refer you on for a D&C of you're still bleeding. Don't worry, they will scan you first to see if there is still a heartbeat.

I'm so sorry. I hope you have good news. I had 3, lots a twin in the womb, but kept going and now have a healthy boy. A friend has 11 miscarriages and refused to give up. She's got 3 kids now.

Xxxxxxxxxx

Sorry for your loss flowers

I'm so sorry but it does sound like you had a miscarriage. It's never a good thing when you're bleeding really heavy and then have clots. I had a miscarriage on Friday and I'm devastated. If you want to talk please do because I know the pain you're going through right now. It's not fair at all.

Hi Gemma, I had a very heavy bleed with clots and thought I was having a miscarriage but it turns out I have a blood clot on the placenta. I didn't get any cramps though. Sometimes there are other reasons for bleeding. Fingers crossed for you xx

You never know until the doctor has confirmed it so look after yourself and get lots of rest. I had a 6 week miscarriage a few months back and I passed a very large clot which looked more like a sack so I knew then it was a miscarriage- the epu confirmed it with a blood test. I bled for a good 7 days but it wasn't any heavier than a normal period and the clots all passed in a couple of days. I'm now 11 weeks pregnant, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. If it is a miscarriage allow your self time to grieve, look after yourself, lots of chocolate and trashy TV! Sending lots of love xx

Hi Gemmaxo,
Am thinking about you...Do you have any updates? I really hope everything is okay. xoxo

It wasn't good news, I miscarried. We're absolutley devastated sadso hard seeing our little baby one day then gone the next, is it the right thing to try an get pregnant again straight away or would you recommend we wait a while for my body to rest?

Hi Gem just saw your post flash up in active I'm so so Sorry to hear this flowers it is utterly devastating.

I have had 6, and have only ever waited when my body has decided it wants to wait, and immediately started using OPKs again some doctors do suggest having a break for dating purposes but from what I have been told physically there is no reason to wait, emotional is very different so it really depends on how you feel, I wanted to try again immediately after my later miscarriage but my body didn't return to normal for three months.

I am so sorry your going through this, be very kind to yourself and DP/DH lean on each other for support. Under body and soul is a miscarriage area and your see lots of threads you may want to read when your ready for further support/guidance

Take care xx

A lot of people advise leaving it a while, by I carried on regardless. I knew that I wasn't going to get any help until I'd miscarried 3 times so I ploughed through it. After that, I was given injections and the baby survived. Good luck xxx flowers

I had a MC at 6 weeks and when the bleeding stopped we tried again straight away. I got pregnant again immediately and the result of that is now 4 months old and asleep in his cot smile

flowers for you, take care of yourself X

Gemmaxo-
I'm soooo sorry for your loss. I know it is completely devastating. I found out last Friday I was having a miscarriage and it's all I can think about. I want to start ttc immediately as well to just move forward...My doctor recommends I wait until my hCG level goes back to 0 and then wait for my period to come. But from what I'm reading online you ovulate 2-3 weeks after a miscarriage...so regardless were ttc right away. Next week I'm going to pick up ovulation prediction test strips and just start. I need to move forward from this because I seriously feel depressed and never have felt this way before. So I totally understand what you're going through. I say you go for it and try right away. One good thing me and you have on our side is that it's highly unlikely the next time we get pregnant we will have another miscarriage. I think it's like a 5% chance. But the bad thing for us is the waiting time...I feel time has slowed down and is a constant reminder of what happened. I need this month to be over and move on.

It feels so good to be able to vent to you ladies, thank you so much for listening. Gemmaxo, please feel free to vent and let it all out as I feel every little pain you're feeling right now. We can get over this. <3
