First of all sorry babes, and I hope you are ok. Second of all, yes, it had period pains from hell but just that afternoon, had such bad cramps I thought I'd faint and had to crawl up stair on hands and knees, never suffer from period pains usually and I passed large clots that looked weird and one clot had a bean looking object which I kept in fridge till I could see a GP on the Monday!!!!!!!! (sorry to gross you out) GP said it probably was a miscarriage and sent me away.

Look after yurself, lots of love TC x

Hi evesmama!

No not been trying really if we get pregnant we get pregnant but have felt really weird these past couple of weeks.

I am losing weight as well from having my son I have gone down to a size 8 which I have never been b4 so it could just be that but have got a gp appointment on Monday.

Evesmama Fri 20-May-05 23:05:38

try not to worry(easy for me to say i know)

I wont comment on M/C if that is the case as i have no right too, however, it could very well be due to your weight loss?...hope it go's well and you feel better soon

Are you still living in same place?
we're trying to move at minute, up to Ingleby...having a hard time raising money for what we want though

Evesmama Mon 23-May-05 22:18:20

how did it go hun?

lozzawoo - I miscarried when I was 16 and knew nothing about it until I went to the GP a week later. My AF was 2 weeks late, but I was young and stupid and on the pill! When it arrived it was very heavy and sore and I felt tired. I remember being in the bath and passing somthing quite distinctive (sorry TMI).... went to the GP a few days later who informed me that it probably was a miscarriage. He took my temp to check for infection, asked if the bleeding had stopped, which it had, and sent me on my way telling me to come back if I had anymore unusual bleeding or abdominal pain. I will never know if it was a mc, but I believe in my heart it was. I had never been irregular and have never been since. It didn't upset me until years later.

Apparently it's very common for women to mc a few days after AF is due, but you just put it down to stress.... AF a bit late... and get on with it. Perhaps sometimes its better not to know IMO.
With dramatic weight loss that could totally explain it.
I hope you get some peace of mind.

It must be horrible to not know if you have miscarried or not.

In November I miscarried but only found out when my doctor did a test. My period was on time but then 8 days later it was still there and mine are usually 4 days. I went to the docs and tested negative. Another 10 days later, still bleeding, back to docs who took a blood test. The level of H-cgt was much higher than a "normal" one (usually 5) but much lower than if I was 15 days past conception (many 100's or 1000's). Mine was 25. Hence it was considered that I had been pregnant and the level was returning to normal. So that's how I knew. My "period" lasted a whole month in the end, which apparently is not odd for a miscarriage but I was very surprised/shocked.

I think that in your case the level would be normal again by now.

I'm not aware of any other way of knowing but I expect that if you think it was that then it probably was.

Hope you feel Ok about it all. I must admit to having felt quite relieved at having been pregnant as I was doubting it would happen as I am 42! That was my silver lining.
