I started bleeding on Wednesday last week when I should have been roughly 9 weeks - it was bright red and like a moderate period straightaway and later on that evening I had quite a lot of cramping, a bit like mild contractions.
Scan on Thursday (private) showed an approximately 8 weeks sac and a possible fetal pole and no heartbeat. Scan on Friday (hospital) showed a possible sac, but it wasn't the right shape and was very low near my cervix - again a possible fetal pole, measuring 2.5mm and no heartbeat.
Since then the bleeding has been pretty consistent, just like a moderate period, some cramping, but very manageable. Yesterday I had some backache and I lost 2 largish clots within around an hour. Now the bleeding is brown and minimal. Could it really be over?? It feels like it should have been so much worse. I have another scan on Saturday morning, so still have days of wondering whether I will have a huge bleed while out.
Sorry to sound so matter of fact. I have been very upset indeed, but have reached a stage where I feel better and just want it to be over so I can move on and look after my dc properly/ take them to school/activities without the fear of bleeding significantly in public.
i'm so sorry. that does seem like it's over... can you ask the EPU to check your HCG 2 days apart?
A week's worth of heavy bleeding is consistent with natural mc... i had lots of cramping like a really bad period but closer to contractions
make sure you have a large supply of pads as i found sometimes you'd get a second gush... i actually bought (nearly in tears) maternity pads for my last mc as they were more absorbent and comfortable...
Thank you. I do realise the pregnancy is over, I meant is the worst part of the miscarriage over? Just realised I may need to clarify that. I am so scared to leave the house in case the worst is yet to come and I have a huge bleed while away from home.
