Five weeks today and spent all of last night awake with stomach cramps and bleeding. Clots and everything. Went to see lovely doc at local cottage hosp at 4am have GP appt this morning and scan booked in for Tuesday at 9 but I don't think there's much hope.

Was super surprised to be pregnant as thought it would be v diff for DH and I and it feels very cruel to have the rug pulled like this only 9 days after we found out.

Feel like it's a club I'm not allowed to join after all.

I'm very sorry to hear this.

Wishing you all the best for the scan, but I guess a pragmatic attitude would help (sorry if that sounds defeatist)

But do take hope from the fact you did get pregnant. It means you can get pregnant again. And I say this as someone who struggled.

Take care and I really, really hope things work out for you x

I don't want to give you false hope and I pray that all will be ok, but the same happened to me at 6 weeks. I had to wait three days until a scan where I was convinced it was game over. It turns out I was pregnant with twins, one was surviving but I was losing one. I'm now 24 weeks pregnant. Xx

Thank you for your messages lovely ladies. Spoken to the doctor who says there's nothing I can do. Am going to try and get some sleep x

Hi Weasel,

As I've said over on the other thread I am so sorry.

I'm almost in the same situation. Should be 5/40 today. Had spotting Monday. Breasts no longed tender and generally have a bad feeling.

Having bloods this week to see if hcg going up appropriately.

It's the toughest place to be. Not knowing whether to have a bit of hope or to start preparing yourself for the worst.

Sorry to crash your thread- feels like there's only so much you want to discuss this on the antenatal thread...

Hope you are feeling ok.

Weaselicious Wed 03-Apr-13 09:55:11

Thank you for the message Mildred, and I'm sorry to see you here too sad Am doing ok I think - clearly something wasn't right for me to lose it this early.

Having said that, I'm sending a huge amount of love and positive thoughts your way, and if I can do anything to help please shout. I hope you have good results this week, keep me updated. Xxx

Really don't want to crash the thread but wanted to say I am in the same position. Spotted on Monday and then bright red blood last night. Back to spotting now. I have a scan booked for tomorrow morning. Not holding out much hope though.

Wishing you both the best of luck and fingers crossed for positive out comes

Weaselicious Wed 03-Apr-13 10:16:04

You're all so polite! It's not thread crashing, it's hug sharing. Keeping everything crossed for you Littlepic hugs hugs hugs xxxx

Littlepic Wed 03-Apr-13 10:26:12

Thanks Weasel, big hugs to you as well. Just wish this wasn't happening.

LandsN Wed 03-Apr-13 11:18:16

I am 10 weeks and have had bleeding throughout this pregnancy on and off even now I have had 4 scans so far and all has been ok I have another one booked for friday to make sure there is no change after this bleed hope all is well xx

Weaselicious Wed 03-Apr-13 11:19:47

I know, it's shit isn't it. X

Littlepic Wed 03-Apr-13 11:38:59

Sorry to hear about your bleeding LandsN. I hope your latest scan goes well. Can I just ask, has your bleeding all been old brown blood or have you had fresh red blood??

I had three bouts of brown spotting with my first DD and all was fine, she is now 15 months. This time I've had two episodes of fresh, red blood and it's making me think the worse. Hope you don't mind me asking.

LandsN Wed 03-Apr-13 12:02:37

I have had heavy red blood and brown but at different times I had two days where I bled heavy it stopped they scanned me the next day that afternoon I bled again so they scanned me again the next day and it had grown 1mm overnight and that was bright red blood they dont actually know where ut came from but I do have a bleed outside the sac bit like a bruise x

Littlepic Wed 03-Apr-13 12:30:00

LandsN that sounds so stressful. I really hope your scan on Friday goes well. My bleeding has stopped (for now!) hopefully it stays that way!

LandsN Wed 03-Apr-13 12:59:08

Thats good, at first I paniced everytime but now I half cope with it I have had 3 mcs so I just always think the worst and if its not its a boost of confidence hope bleeding stays away for u now and its all easy good luck x

MildredH Thu 04-Apr-13 10:00:51

Littlepic- hope your scan goes well this morning.

How are you today Weasel?

I've taken a few days off work this week which I'm now thinking perhaps not the best plan as knocking around the house obsessing.. Planning to try and tackle some chores that always get put off due to 'no time'..

Hope you're both feeling ok today.

Weaselicious Thu 04-Apr-13 10:11:16

Hi Mildred, time off work sounds good, do take it easy though. When are your bloods? I'm ok ish today, yesterday horrible - got palmed off by two drs at my GPs who wouldn't even see me and basically told me to get on with it. By 5pm was feeling dreadful so went to A&E who fortunately were wonderful. Saw me really fast, IV fluids and painkillers in straight away, saw Obs & Gynae doc, who was fantastic and so kind. Have had my final scan brought forward to today so by this afternoon at least I'll know what's happened and can finally rule out ectopic.

All a but much really, but DH being amazing. Am v lucky. Hope you have better news this week am thinking of you, and you too Littlepic and LandsN. Do let me know how you all get on xx

Littlepic Thu 04-Apr-13 11:35:22

Hi all,

Had my scan this morning and all is ok. 6 week old foetus with a heart beat. Couldn't find a reason for the bleeding. Just one of those things!! Feeling very relieved.

Good luck to everyone else with there up coming blood tests and scans. Thinking of you all xxx

MildredH Thu 04-Apr-13 11:53:43

That's great news Littlepic- I'm really pleased for you. Must be a massive relief.

Weasel- I'm sorry you had a hard time with the doctors. I think they can have a very clinical approach to early pregnancy. I say this as a doctor myself- I worked in obs & gynae last year after my own MMC which definitely helped me to empathise with my patients. I've taken to avoiding one particular GP at my practice now as she was just SO utterly patronising. My favourite moment whilst TTC was when she turned to address DH during one appointment and said that he needed to help his wife to calm down. Was I still in the room... Eh YES! Sorry.. I digress angry

I really hope your scan today goes ok. My second blood test is tomo so I'm hoping to have an answer before the weekend.

Weaselicious Thu 04-Apr-13 12:01:57

littlepic oh that's great news, so pleased for you smile

Mildred clinical's about right, partic the doc who told me it was only like having a very heavy period. Bless his cotton socks. I'm not the hysterical type, reassurance and being taken seriously is all I ask for! Plus I'm impressed you didn't go properly nuts at that truly empathetic and lovely GP you saw...

Will let you know re the scan, tbh I'm in denial at the minute so think its going to be a tough day when I finally get confirmation. Fingers crossed for you.

MildredH Thu 04-Apr-13 12:16:15

Weasel- all I can suggest if its bad news is a large glass of wine. Not for everyone I know, but was great anaesthetic for me with the MMC last year.

Am hoping you will not need this & will be nursing a celebratory hot chocolate instead.

And yes, I was also impressed with my self restraint with this doctor. I think I was shocked into submission until DH and I got out and into the car. I consoled myself with the fact she was wearing high heeled, wedge trainers so had quite obviously taken all leave of her senses that day anyway!

Good luck Weasel x

Weaselicious Thu 04-Apr-13 12:17:32

High heeled wedge trainers?! Holy crap on a cracker.

Weaselicious Thu 04-Apr-13 12:17:57

PS vino at the ready...

MildredH Thu 04-Apr-13 13:21:37

Just got yesterday's HCG- almost 5000 and in keeping with pregnancy at this stage but 5 minutes later more spotting- red/brown with tiny clots.

Such a roller coaster sad

Weaselicious Thu 04-Apr-13 13:51:10

Oh good news Mildred keep in touch fingers so crossed for you xxx
