Am I have my second miscarriage? Can't find answers anywhere.(3 Posts)
Hi, I had a miscarriage last year in September after trying for a baby for 2 years. I fell pregnant again at the start of this year. I had some bleeding at the weekend so I went for a scan on Tuesday, at the scan me and my partner saw our baby and its little heart was beating, but the lady said that it was beating slow (she even checked my pulse to see if she was just picking up mine. I think) My periods have been out since my miscarriage, but I keep track of everything and I thought I was 7weeks, but she said the baby's wasn't measuring up to 7weeks. They booked me for a scan for two weeks after. The way they were talking it didn't sound good and they said they can't rule out another miscarriage. I have read some stories from other women who say they had their dates out by 10 days or more, so in some ways that gave me hope and made me think maybe my baby is only 5-6 weeks, but I will just have to see from the next scan.
When the bleeding started it was only like red once a day, in the morning and then just went to brown and that was for about 3-4 days, there wasn't much blood but it was red and I had a lot of brown discharge. (Sorry tmi) I haven't had blood for the last 2 days, which I'm hoping is a good sign, but I have been feeling very very ill, lots of bad headaches, feeling sick, bellyaches and just really feeling unwell. Even having to force myself to eat because I know it will help the baby. I still have sore breast and tiredness, so I don't think my pregnancy symptoms have stopped.
Is my body working over time to help my baby or is this the start of a miscarriage? Could I have my dates wrong and my baby be a week or so behind what I thought and can my baby's heart start beating faster or am I going to miscarry?
I can't find anything online that can answer the question of my baby being to small and a slow heart beat and me feeling very very ill.
I have lost hope and I have even just started waiting for the miscarriage to happen, instead of being positive.
I hope some of you can help me and tell me some of your stories. Thank you for reading, sorry it was so long.
Hi - sorry to hear what you are going through.
With regards to size/date, I want to give you my slightly positive anecdote. They can be very wrong in the early days. I had bleeding around 6 weeks and went to epu, to be told that they could not see a heart beat, the baby was too small and there was blood in the sack. They told me it didn't look good and to come back in two weeks - at which point there was a strong heartbeat and baby was right size. I ended up miscarrying several weeks later but I don't think it was related.
Thank you for your reply. I'm sorry for your loss, I know how hard it can be.
Hopefully things will look better at my next scan, I just hate this waiting game. Thanks again xx
