Hi ladies
I thought I start a new thread and I am new to this forum, and have read other stories and am sorry to hear about previous loses, I'm just try to seek some advice on my current situation.
I am6 weeks pregnant and have had light spotting/bleeding for over two weeks now, it's not enough to need a pad but I use a liner just incase, but I rarely mark it. Last week I was sent for a scan cause of the bleeding & theyvfound the sac, which measured at 5 weeks 2 days, but they couldn't see anything inside as yet, and I was told to repeat the scan in 10 days. Cause it could be to early to see anything in it. I'm just so confused am I experiencing a miscarriage and if so over these past few weeks with bleeding wouldn't I have lost more blood and even tissue.
I'm just hoping to hear if anyone has a similar story to mine and what the outcome was, I just find so many doctors care free.
Would lovevto hear from you
P.a I had mylevels test at 5 weeks and they were 27000 and the doctor said they didn't need to test then anymore as they were happy with the rise

Sorry to hear you are in this situation. Didn't want to leave your post unanswered. Apparently once your HCG levels go over 7000 (so your HCG is very high for that stage in your pregnancy) they should be able to see a fetal pole but they struggled to find one in my scan at 5weeks 3 days last week. Like you I am waiting for a repeat scan in 10 days (this thursday).

Light bleeding is very common in early pregnancy apparently but if accompanied by cramps and clots then it can be a sign of miscarriage (but then some women even have clots etc and still have sucessful pregnancies).

Anyhow good luck with your next scan- as unfortunately that is the only thing that will tell you one way or the other what is going on- the waiting is horrible.
Look after yourself.

Hi Roey I completely agree with you, so many doctors seem 'care free' as you put it. I don't know if it's because they've seen mc so many times or what but the ones who dealt with me were all very uncaring too, and very vague about what thy could see and what would happen to me during my mc. I wouldn't have had a clue what to expect if it hadn't been for MN!

Anyway, just wanted to answer your question about the bleeding. If your baby has died, you wouldn't necessarily have experienced blood/tissue loss. With a missed miscarriage, the baby can die inside you and your body might not react to it for up to 6 weeks. I lost my baby at 8 weeks and had only had very minimal brown/red spotting. I really hope things will turn out ok for you, waiting for scans is horrible I really do feel for you! Take care of yourself.
