Hi all, I got my BFP on digital for 4-5 days last week then on Friday & sat they were not pregnant so I assume I have miscarriaged again, I have not pain or bleeding when should I expect the bleeding to start ? My last two miscarriaged I have started bleeding and had to attend EPU so ive not been in this position before , thanks in advance

I think you need to speak to your doctor. My mc was missed - I finally started bleeding at 12 weeks, miscarried at 13 weeks but baby had died at 8 weeks. So it took a month for me to start bleeding. Being as early as you are, you might start bleeding quicker as I think that it will be counted as a chemical pregnancy I you are less than 6 weeks. I've just had a chemical. Positive test on Friday but BFN since. AF feels like she is imminent (due tomorrow but I ovulated early). I'm sorry for your loss. I know what you are going through. flowers

Hi Wedding, I very recently had an early miscarriage. I got my BFP and continued to test every few days or so and about 10 days after my initial BFP I thought the lines were fainte so I tested every day after that and watched the lines get fainter each time and I knew what had happened. When I tested 14 days after my initial BFP I finally got the negative result I was expecting and then I miscarried the next day.

Hi all , it's bloody hellish isn't it :-( im so fed up we have been ttc for 30 months now and this is my 3rd mc this time I was using progesterone pessaries too x

Just spoke to the midwife at the EPU she said I have to test again in 1 week incase my levels lift again ? Anyone heard of this ?

That's normal if you haven't started bleeding. They won't intervene until they have confirmed that you have had a loss.

Do you think it's likely that I will need intervention of i was only 5.5 weeks?

Loki17 Tue 29-Mar-16 13:28:05

I don't know to be honest. It depends if you start to bleed naturally I think.

Weddingbelle13 Tue 29-Mar-16 13:56:50

Oh I just want this to be over so I can move on :-(

I'm so sorry you are going through this flowers

Hi Wedding, just wanted to join Loki in offering flowers. It's such a horrible time, the waiting is so difficult. I had an early mc at about 5 weeks in January, knew for 4 days I was pregnant (after ttc for two years this was flaming amazing) and then the blood came.

When I first started spotting the advice my no nonsense GP gave to me is that there is nothing I could do about it and had to wait it out. I imagine this is the logic of the EPU, and that at this stage, if it is an MC it could happen naturally.

I'm so sorry though, I felt like I aged about ten years in the space of two weeks and it sounds to me that you have had a hugely difficult time of it with your journey. x

When I visited my GP (the day after I had a BFN) she told me that she would give me a week for the actual miscarriage to take place and if it hadn't in that time frame then she would refer me to the hospital for possible intervention.

Thank you for all your help and advice - now on the spectacular bleeding stage since about 9pm tonight I can't control it but hoping it settles down tomorrow x

HI Wedding

How is it going today? I'm sorry to hear that it's gone onto spectacular bleeding and I hope you were able to sleep okay. I found that a hot water bottle and all the drugs helped as I was cramping big time. A total duvet few days and absolutely no expectations of myself at all. I hope that will be possible for you.
