I think I am miscarrying(119 Posts)
Just that really. Started brown spotting yesterday lunch time and have now started full on bleeding, just like a period. I was 6 weeks pregnant with DC2 on this Friday just gone.
I'm devastated and really frightened. Not in any physical pain yet but really worried about what this afternoon will bring.
Any support or advice would be gratefully accepted
I do have a specific question. People keep asking me why I haven't gone to A&E but there no point unless I'm in a lot of pain, or bleeding v heavily is there? There's nothing they can do, and I'd rather stay in bed if I can.
But should I see my GP tomorrow?
I'm so sorry
At 6 weeks it's possible it won't be any worse than a period physically. Emotionally it will be much harder though.
Do you have good rl support? Is dp good at dealing with all the practical things and looking after dc1?
Yes DH is being great, wondering whether up send DS off to my mums for the afternoon....
I had a mc last Easter. I was 12 weeks. I was advised by the ooh doctors not to bother going to see them unless things got really bad. So I didn't. I did the whole thing at home and I think I'm glad I did, I'd rather have it happen at home than be somewhere I wasn't as comfortable, and sorting out childcare on Easter Sunday for my other 2 dcs would have been a nightmare.
I didn't see anybody medical at all about my mc. Nobody seemed that interested in seeing me tbh, especially after all the bleeding had stopped.
Welovegrapes thank you so much. No such thing as TMI as far as I'm concerned in this situation.
Luckily I work with DH at our own business so time off won't be a problem.
Ugh it feels like waiting to die. Sorry to be do bleak but it really does.
Local EPU is mon-fri only. I'm up for staying at home in the warm.
So sorry this is happening Vix, you might still be ok so try not to think the complete worst.
I would say there is no point going to a&e after asking the exact same question last weekend after I started bleeding. I did actually end up sitting in a&e on the Monday for 4 hours and they still couldn't scan me until wednesday.
Do you have the number of your local EPAU? Some have drop ins or you can just phone them up. I would do that tomorrow morning. They will be much better in assessing you and perhaps giving you a scan.
Obviously if things get really bad do go to a&e.
Oh I'm so sorry for you. <offers hand to hold>. I don't have any advice to offer but would be sensible I think to make a GP appointment for Monday. It you're uncomfortable then paracetamol and a hot water bottle may help.
Oh, so sorry
tbh A&E won't do anything. I spent four hours miscarrrying in my A&E, waiting ion chairs, not even in a cucible, and it was the bleakest time of my life. By the time I got seen, all they could tell me was go home, call 999 if haemmoraging [sp] and contact EPU on Monday (this was a Friday night)
I would have been better at home, in comfort and with my own loo handy.
However, saying all that, there are lots of stories of people bleeding early on and things still being OK, so it's entirely possible that this iusn't a miscarriage. Hang in there, and call the EPU first thing on Monday morning.
hugs to you xx
Thanks all. I do have my booking in appt with midwife tomorrow. My RL friends are suggesting I keep that but I'm not sure whether its her, a gp, or EPU that I should see. Or none of the above.
I'm thinking through practical details because I hate being out of control!
Really so grateful for all your posts, I appreciate the handholding
So sorry OP, this happened to me last year, also DC2, also at 6 weeks. Our local EPU wouldn't scan until 8 weeks so it was a case of waiting and seeing then going to get it confirmed.
I would recommend going if this is offered, it means they can check everything is "where it should be" for if/when you want to try again. Plus it's on your notes then if anything did need investigating in future (though hopefully not)
So sorry again
Since I wrote this I've just gone back to the odd spot of blood and still in no pain. In total i think ive only lost a teaspoon full of blood in the past 30 hours... no pain and no clots. I don't want to have false hope but I think there is still a small chance things could be ok. I'm hoping things stay the same overnight and that the midwife can help reassure (or otherwise) tomorrow. So scary
Still hanging on with no more bleeding so far. 2 hrs and counting til my appt.
keeping everything crossed for you vix , will keep an eye on this for more news x
Midwife thinks I am Going to be all right from what i told her. I took a clear blue test and its positive 3+ as it should be. Just told to rest and not panic. I'm under consultant care due to haemorrhage after DS and then depression. Still bleeding a bit but feeling more hopeful. Fingers crossed.
Fingers crossed for you, hope everything works out for you
