7 weeks, spotting and no heartbeat

II was over the moon to find out I was finally pregnant after a missed miscarriage and then 18 months of trying. Very lucky to already have a 4 year old son.

On Friday night I found some bright red blood. Not loads but more than spotting. By the morning it was spots of brown blood. I went to the EPU at the hospital. They said I have severe cervical ectropion, and the bleed was likely coming from that. My HCG levels were 20,000.

Had an internal scan and they saw a fetal pole with CRL length of 1.5mm. But no heartbeat. I have to go back in a week for another scan.

This is almost identical to what happened last time. So although it could be the cervical ectropion causing the bleed, they thought that last time and I still had a miscarriage.

The thing giving me a bit of hope is that during by cycle I thought I ovulated late. And I didn't get a positive pregnancy result until a week after my period was due. My pregnancy tests are still coming up very strong - almost instant results and stronger than the control line. So it could be cervical ectropion in combo with being more like 5.5/6 weeks than 7.

Sorry, for the massively long post. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Not had something similar but just wanted to wish you luck. Do you still feel pregnant? I ask because when I'd started bleeding I knew in my heart it was a miscarriage as I literally didn't feel pregnant anymore. Lots of people can have bleeds in pregnancy and the baby is fine, I wish you lots of luck thanks

Thank you. Yes, I still feel pregnant. But it could be a missed miscarriage again.
