Hi all. I know I am clutching at straws here but this will be my 4th MC and my third in seven months. I am 7 weeks pregnant I have had really strong symptoms and strong lines on pregnancy tests. On saturday my symptoms seemed to have disappeared. Having been here before, I knew this was a bad sign. I did a test yesterday and the line has faded a lot. I did another this morning using FMU and the positive lines was barely there. I am booked for a scan on Thursday. Could the line have faded for any other reason.....just searching for some hope before I have to face the loss again.

don't know I'm afraid, just feeling sympathetic: I'm 5 weeks and spotting so also in that horrible phase - don't know for sure it's another mc but fearing it is. Good luck for you

Any news? I'm still waiting.

sorry to hear you are in this horrible limbo the only advice i can give is please stop testing. levels can fluctuate and you need to have held FMU for at least 8 hours for levels to be high.

i have had 7MCs the most recent being last tuesday and it does no good testing all the time. it wont change anything and just adds to the worry.

good luck and keep us posted x

sorry to hear about your MCs, Panda.

freyski · 14/07/2010 19:56

PandaEis - really sorry to read about your losses. You are right about my need to stop testing. I think the last couple of weeks I have sent myself nuts constantly knicker checking and testing. I have a scan booked tomorow at 10.30am. Am trying to prepare myself for the worst but cant help clinging to the last shreads of hope. I am dreading the time I have to lie on the scanning table and stare at that blank screen. Thanks for your advice.

Kingfix - hope you have some good news soon.

Oh good luck with the scan, I really hope it is good news for you.

Clutching at straws: I'm really bleeding now but somehow hoping, I don't know what.
Any better news for you freyski?

freyski · 15/07/2010 21:20

Had the scan today and we saw a baby and a heart beat! I can hardly believe it. Trying to keep my feet on the ground but am so relieved. Have taken the advice and got rid of any tests. Sorry to hear your bleeding has got heavier. Really hoping that it all turns out ok. {{hug))

kingfix sorry to hear you are bleeding hope you are feeling ok and all is not lost xx

I was keeping a vague eye on this thread and hoping you would be ok, Freyski. So glad you had a good scan. Try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy - worrying won't help and IME it really takes the shine off things.

Ei - sorry to hear about another mc, I hope you're ok. (tis me, Mrs H, btw).

kingfix · 16/07/2010 10:13

freyski -brilliant news! Hope you can relax and enjoy it from here.

Thanks. I'll clamber back into the ttc ring when I've cheered up a bit.

rainbowdays · 17/07/2010 22:42

Sorry to invade your thread freyski - I was going to come and say that sometimes as hormone levels increase, tests can become unreiable as they become negative due to not being able to process high levels of hormones. Congratulations anyway on the wonderful scan.

Pandaeis - if you read this, sorry to hear you have m/c again. I have too this week. I have been wondering how you were, but reading here, tells me. take care.

freyski · 18/07/2010 21:51

Thanks Rainbow for your reply. Sorry to hear about your loss this week
