I'm sorry that you've had a chemical pregnancy. They are heartbreaking. I had one at the beginning of this year, but am now waiting to give birth after falling pregnant again very soon afterwards. With my chemical I bled as I would a normal period really. I would make an appointment to see your doctor to discuss with them what has happened and why you are still bleeding. flowers

I'm sorry I can't help but I've just had a chemical pregnancy confirmed this morning after IVF and my doctor told me to come of all hormone support and to expect a bleed in three/four days but it should be much like a normal period so if your still bleeding I would see a doctor. X

Yes I would also go to the doctor if I were you.

Just to be checked over.

Sorry you're going through this.

flowers Not my experience of them, no.

Go to the doctor and ask; also get your iron levels tested as you risk anaemia (I had to have iron tablets for some time).

Ive just been to the doctor and she is sending me for a scan and saying I will probably need an op to make sure everything is clear. Is this normal from a chemical pregnancy?? 🙄😫

Hopefully the scan will show what's going on OP.

Well, that's more "normal" for a later pregnancy but it's not unheard of for a chemical. It's done when the womb is trying to expel something but it's not quite worked. Are your tests definitely negative now? Have you had any pain on one side at all?

When's your scan?

Mummy523 Mon 05-Dec-16 11:01:22

The doctor did another test today was negative. Im waiting for a phone call for the scan they have marked it as urgent. This is my 3rd loss this year. Getting fed up now 😫

flowers sorry to hear that.

Glad to hear they're looking into it fast, I hope it's nothing too scary.

After my first three I was referred to a specialist, have you had that option? I didn't think chemicals counted but the doctor did. He said a real "chemical" test wouldn't be positive, and a positive meant it was a (very early) miscarriage. Don't know how true that is from what I've googled, but they did all sorts of tests and found a few things to tackle.

Mummy523 Mon 05-Dec-16 11:12:05

Thank you xxx
Yeah I have been reffered and am waiting to get seen by a specialist. I dont really want another op as Ive already had 2 surely this cant be good for you?

Did you go on to have any successful pregnancies? Xxx

Wineandchocolate123 Mon 05-Dec-16 11:14:09

Hopefully the scan will show what's happening. I'd say it's unusual for so early in pregnancy, but it's good that they have referred you straight away flowers

klassykringle Mon 05-Dec-16 11:17:19

Hmm ... I don't think the ops alone should damage your fertility (but the doctors could probably guess more) - sometimes they help everything to "reset". But it's horrible anyway. You might not need one of course?

No, no successful pregnancies for me yet sadly, just six mcs (but I'm one of the anomalies - very few have that many, and many, many people are helped successfully by the specialists!) flowers

Mummy523 Mon 05-Dec-16 11:21:41

Aww im so sorry to hear that :-(

I had my lg 2&half years ago had and awful birth and was really poorly, so im wondering if that has anything to do with it?

My first loss was a missed m/c baby had stopped growing at 7weeks & 1 day. Didnt find out until 11 weeks.

Second was a belighted ovuram
& third chemical.

I have everything crossed for you and sending you all the luck in the world 💜

klassykringle Mon 05-Dec-16 12:12:49

Thank you mummy, that's kind - I really hope you have a successful pregnancy soon too. flowers

I hope you're taking it easy on yourself emotionally. You've really been through the mill, and it must add another dimension to want a sibling for your little one too.

Not too sure if bad births can affect future pregnancies, but definitely something to raise with the specialist!

MrsRabbitsTwin Mon 05-Dec-16 12:44:46

I've had 2 ectopics and a chemical pregnancy and and then had DS, and am 10 weeks pg with number 2. Both DS and this pregnancy were IVF.

Do you know where you're being referred to? I'd be tempted to call whichever Early Pregnancy Unit it is to see if you can go in this afternoon for a scan.

Good luck and sorry to hear about your losses.

Mummy523 Mon 05-Dec-16 16:04:45

Thank you it is hard 3 looses in 9months. I just feel a failure.

I have a scan booked for friday, they wanted to scan me wenesday but have no child care.

I just dont get this bleeding one minute its clotty then its dark brown?

Been like since the 15th decemeber.

I just dont understand it 😫😫 xx

MrsRabbitsTwin Tue 06-Dec-16 19:53:07

Didn't want to read and run, I hope you're ok OP and your mind is put to rest on Friday.

Mummy523 Fri 09-Dec-16 17:01:25

So had the most awful day!! Went for the scan showed something in my tube. The test at the docs monday was negative. My bloods show hcg of 106. Did another test clear positive. So im so confused. Dont know if im coming or going. Good blood test in 48hours to see if my hcg goes up. So lost!! Any ideas???? Sonographer ? Ectopic. Doctors are saying early pregnancy. So im lost!! Xx

Mummy523 Fri 09-Dec-16 17:01:58

Beth2511 Fri 09-Dec-16 17:12:26

I have had three pregnancies and two big bouts of bleeding. the one where the baby survived I bled for weeks and weeks and weeks. please go get checked out!

Mummy523 Fri 09-Dec-16 17:38:46

I have been checked out. They are re doing my bloods in 48 hours xx

limon Fri 09-Dec-16 18:03:20

Sorry to hear this. I just wanted to say to you that I had three miscarriages aged 41-42 in the space of a year, fell pregnant a fourth time at 43 and had a baby girl (who is now school aged). Just wanting to give you some hope that it can work out, after you posted up there about whether anyone had any good news after losses.

DontKnow72511 Fri 09-Dec-16 21:59:12

I hope everything works out well for you OP,

Same as Limon just want to give you a bit of hope

My first pregnancy ended at 6 months and my baby died 2 hours after he was born

I fell pregnant shortly after and miscarried, fell pregnant again shortly after and miscarried ( so had 3 losses in the space 7 months )

Finally fell pregnant with DD ( nearly 2 ) miscarried again and now I have a 2 week old son,

I hope everything works out well for you OP x
