went to midwife today after having brown stuff yesterday and then 2day it was pink sorry to much info, but she said wait till monday for my scan and whilst i was there she got the doppler out and couldnt hear the heart beat
has anyone else had this around 10 weeks
or when did u first hear babys heart beat
Dopplers are notoriously bad at pcking up heartbeats before about 16 weeks or so. TBH, I'm a bit shocked that she even attempted it, knowing your situation. all it's done is added to your stress and worry when probably 99% of the time it wouldn't pick up a 10 week heartbeat.
i am appalled at your MW! mine refused to listen for heartbeat before 16 weeks as babies have so many places to hide in, its almost impossible to find them!
i can understand her trying to reassure you, but she should have known better.
i'm not gonna lie, this weekend is gonna be hard for you, it will go slowly and you will be full of what if's etc, BUT so many of us suffer bleeds during the early stages and often it is either a harmless blood sac or baby burrowing in nice and deep for a long stay! also i think things seem even more promising as you havent had any red blood... i have had brown turning to pink in three pregnancies... three healthy pregnancies. chin up babe xxx
olihan, tbh it has just added to my stress, my mums just been and i told her and she said to my dp why didnt u just take her to the hospital so u dont have to sit there over the weekend worrying about it, he didnt know what to say, poor dp. thanks for your advice.
rdk - do you live near a hospital with an Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit? See here.
You can self-refer and maybe they could see you tomorrow, especially if you tell them about the extra stress you're under because of the midwife trying the doppler. Got to be worth a phone call to save you a weekend of worry.
book.... yeah i live near hospital with EPAU if im still the same tomorrow then i will do its a walk in clinic as my midwife told me today if i get lots more.... to go down if i need to, i did have a scan there when i was 6 weeks due to pains i was getting and did at that time see a HB.
