I'm 8+2 today and I have a repeat scan tomorrow, the previous scan was two and a half weeks ago and they could see a yolk sac but no heartbeat.

I really think tomorrow will be bad news and keep saying this to DP but he is all hopeful and that makes me feel bad, like I'm letting hiim down again.

I just feel so weepy and upset and don't know how I will get through today at work.

Hi ClaireDe Loon sorry your feeling like this, spotting is not always bad new's. Do you have any pains with the spotting.

I know it's hard try to keep busy until tomorrow and think positive.

I had spotting from at 6 week's to 10 weeks after that it went, and it was bright red spotting. And i have now a 11 week baby, so it's not aways bad news. Also maybe your date's could be a bit out that's why they did'nt find a heartbeat.

Good luck and let us know how you got on.

Thanks arena - no, no pains other than some pains in my tummy muscles in the first week or so that were just strething pains.

I'm not very busy at work at the moment and I just know today is going to drag

You will be fine, just try is stay positive, i know its hard. Is this your first baby?

Yes, I had a miscarriage two years ago. That started with spotting but within a week had turned to heavy bleeding so things feel slightly different this time from that point of view.

I have had this a few weeks ago, i was supposed to be 6 weeks, but they couldn't see anything with a heartbeat and told me to prepare myself for the worst. Went for another scan 2 weeks later and there was a little 7mm baby with a heartbeat! grin I had just had a longer cycle the month i concieved

So please try and stay positive. All is not lost. Hope you are ok and that it all goes well. x

Claire your previous scan was probably too early to see a heartbeat anyway - and to add to the positive stories I had spotting for 4 weeks, albeit a bit later starting at 12 weeks (the day after my scan!) this pg, after a mc last year, and am due tomorrow. Hope you have good news tomorrow.

Loon - thinking of you too.

Thanks all - sadly not good news but I think we're OK, at least this time we knew what we were up against so the painful shock isn't there. I actually feel better today - relieved we know, compared to yesterday feeling so worried.

Barack I saw your message and the other thread and thanks for your kind thoughts - really appreciated.
