suspect miscarriage number 2.(7 Posts)
I am presently 6 weeks pregnant, or so my last period tells me. However I fear all is not well.
This is my second pregnancy, no 1 ended in a natural miscarriage after a trip to A and E Christmas 2015. I was 11 weeks, but no growth after 6 weeks. I promptly bled and cramped a few days after until I vomited and blacked out. It subsided quickly after all tissue was shed and I recovered quite well.
I struggled to get pregnant again, but finally did December past. Unlike the last time I have no nausea whatsoever, infact I could easily convince myself Im not pregnant at all but the pregnancy tests say I am. (I have done many!)
I started to have brown discharge a week ago and out of desperation I googled and took a herbal remedy Agnus cactus plus aspirin, anything to avoid another mc. I know it was a bit reckless but I figured if I'm having a mc how will this make things any worse.
It stopped the bleeding instantly and I stayed on it. I called the EPU near me, they are going to see me in ten days.
I just know there isn't going to be any pregnancy to be seen and I probably have a blighted ovum which I am just making worse and delaying the inevitable by taking the supplements.
I wish they would just see me now and get it over with. Hate the waiting and wondering.
pay for a private scan to ease your mind either way?
I had a look into it. There are all done in the city which is a 2 1/2 hour drive away, Ive bin given extra hours at work too so I can't get an appt to suit. In the end my next bit of time off is when I have the EPU scan. Work will maybe make the time go quicker.
I know it's easy for me to say but try to stay calm and keep taking the supplements. My sister has had 2 pregnancies and with her second she experienced brown blood at 8 weeks for a whole week and at some points quite a lot. She went and got checked out and the midwife said the cervix was closed and they only normally panic if it's red blood. Be careful what you take and try to rest when you can. My sister was sure she would mc and they'd be no heartbeat when they scanned her but everything was fine and her dd is now 5.
When I first conceived I had brown blood and cramping but it stopped and everything was fine. She's now 9 months old.
Prepare yourself either way but don't give up. Hope everything works out for you.
Thanks blu99, Im finding it hard to keep the faith as I have no pregnancy symptoms whatsoever. Feels very odd compared to last time when I had lots of symptoms. Very frustrating not knowing what my body is up to.
Just had my scan, everything is fine! Heartbeat and all there and size is correct for no of weeks. I am so relieved. Cant believe it.
See, every pregnancy is different 😊 I am so happy for you. Congratulations!!!! Make sure you take it easy
