Hi all,
I had a m/c at about 6 weeks in Jan. Had a natural m/c scanned a week later, nothing there, negative pg test two weeks later.
All normal.
Ovulated about two weeks after miscarriage, (used opks).
Started getting possible symptoms about a week later, most strong being funny taste in mouth which I had early with both previous pregnancies.
10 DPO I started bleeding, was earlier than I would expect AF, I thought maybe implantation bleed, but it got heavier so I just thought it wad AF, early maybe because m/c messed up cycle.
Ok, not my month.
Anyway bleeding continued like normal AF, but also having possible pg symptoms. I put it down to hormones a bit off.
Anyway curiosity just got the better of me and I POAS, and there is a v faint line.
Now I am very confused! I am 14 DPO but still bleeding a little.
Any ideas?

Hi no

Sorry for your loss xx

Not got much experience to be honest but from things I have read it implantation bleeding can be quite like a period apparently. The other thing it could be is a chemical pregnancy and you still have the higher levels of hgc in your system.

Hopefully someone with more experience than me can reply.

Thankyou. I am

noitsachicken Tue 25-Feb-14 18:53:07

Sorry posted too soon.
I had thought of chemical pregnancy, but bleed seemed to early?

Guess I'll just have to wait and see, its sooo tedious!

miserywaterfall Tue 25-Feb-14 18:56:05

Yeah that's what I was thinking too, would be very early for a chemical. Keeping fingers crossed for you that it was just heavy implantation bleeding! when did you POAS? x

noitsachicken Tue 25-Feb-14 19:18:32

This afternoon. I will try with FMU tomorrow I think.

cookielove Tue 25-Feb-14 19:26:05

How frustrating for you, fx for tomorrow!

miserywaterfall Tue 25-Feb-14 19:26:15

Fingers crossed!

The waiting around is the worst!

noitsachicken Tue 25-Feb-14 19:33:21

Thanks both.

Not sure what to hope for really, a clearer BFP will just bring more questions, and a tiny bit of hope.
BFN will make sense, but will be sad sad

Another faint BFP.

So confused.

id book a doctors appointment for a blood test

noitsachicken Wed 26-Feb-14 08:22:23

Yes that's probably a good idea.
Although are they likely to just say wait and see?

miserywaterfall Wed 26-Feb-14 18:04:22

When will your period by officially late? Maybe schedule the docs appointment for after that date and that way they might not be so inclined to tell you to just wait it out?

sebsmummy1 Wed 26-Feb-14 18:08:14

Noitsachicken. When was your mc and did you get a negative pregnancy test at any point afterwards?

noitsachicken Wed 26-Feb-14 19:03:28

misery its difficult to tell as not sure when to count from, but I am about 15 DPO now.

sebsmummy I m/c on 21/1, a scan a week later showed everything was gone, and I had a negative pg test two weeks after that.

I did another test this afternoon and it was darker.

sebsmummy1 Wed 26-Feb-14 19:12:43

oooh that sounds really positive then chicken grin

I am still testing faint positive three weeks after my miscarriage started and bleeding. So i know how confusing it is in the aftermath.

Wishing you lots and lots of luck xxxxx

noitsachicken Wed 26-Feb-14 19:24:27

Thankyou sebsmummy
I don't want to get my hopes up because of the bleeding.
Its so confusing, I should have done as they suggested and waited one cycle before trying again, this is obviously why they advise that!

sebsmummy1 Wed 26-Feb-14 19:28:21

Don't be silly, you've done everything right and they will date you with an early scan. Please update this thread as is live confirmation that you are indeed pregnant again. Will give me hope grin

sebsmummy1 Wed 26-Feb-14 19:28:48

As I'd love - that should have read!

noitsachicken Wed 26-Feb-14 19:51:53

Thankyou. I will definately update.
Fingers crossed for both of us x

noitsachicken Thu 27-Feb-14 07:27:14

Another positive this morning, still faint but clearly there.
Going to try to speak to the doctor today.

littlemisswine Thu 27-Feb-14 08:23:48

is it worth using a digital test for an indication of how many weeks?

noitsachicken Thu 27-Feb-14 12:55:30

Yes maybe worth a try, but I am a bit reluctant to waste the money!
Couldnt get a docs apt, I might ring the EPU and have a chat with them, they were lovely when I miscarried.

noitsachicken Thu 27-Feb-14 14:12:35

Lovely lady at the EPU said its unlikely to be related to the miscarriage. Could be implantation bleeding, could be chemical pregnancy. She advised waiting a week then testing again.
I will try to step away from the pregnancy tests!
