i am pregnant(or I was) we were trying for nearly a year. when I find out on 7 April 2011( which was my next expected periods due date) that I was pregnant we were overjoyed. my last period was 13 march 2011 and I have only 25 days between my periods its very regular. According to all internet calendars etc I should be around 6 weeks pregnant. two days ago I went to aquaaerobics class and when i get home i noticed some pink when i wiped. in the evening the pink got from pink to brownish colour, I got really woried called nhs direct and they advised me to take it easy and if bleeding starts or gets worse to make appt at gp in the morning. when i got up i wiped yesterday morning something like a period blood very watery but not bright red like dark pink. i started crying we so wanted this baby i went straight to a&e. they did a pregnancy test which was positive, also took some blood to check hcg levels which i dont know the result yet.i then had an ultrasound and the nurse said imm very sorry but i cant see anything at the uterus which means you misscarried. I cried and cried then went back to see the gyno. she said there are three options one which is most likely that i misscarried 2: i have ectopic pregnancy 3: baby is lot younger than i thought and its less than 4weeks or 5 weeks therefore wouldnt show up on the scan.she wants me to go back this saturday for follow up hcg check to see if my levels double , reduce etc. I know i shouldnt give my self a false hope but i cant help reading other people having bleeds during their pregnancy and scan not showing anythingg. I cant bewrong with my dates(unfortunately) because thats the only time we had sex ( which was 25march) in march:(i cant believe i am not pregnant anymore I just want to curl up and cry I know it will pass but can anybody tell me do I have een the slightest chance?

I am so so sorry that you are going through this, it is awful.

I have had both outcomes...bleeding that turned out to be from my cervix when I was pg with my now 3 yo dd, and bleeding that turned out to be a missed mc. Did they do an internal scan? Because they wouldn't see anything on an abdominal scan at 6 weeks, but during an internal one they would probably see a heartbeat and sac, but that's by no means certain. It really depends when in your cycle you ovulated. I would ask for an internal scan if they didn't do one, and go by what the bloods tell you.

Good luck, and come back and keep us posted x

I'm so sorry :( I know from experience how awful the worry is and I hope for the very best for you. Take it as easy as you can. The they ought to offer a follow up hcg to see if it's rising ok which may give you a better idea.

Have you had any pain?

In my personal experience, no pain is a good sign.

6 week babies have been missed on scans before.

There is still hope and even if there isn't, apparently if you do get pregnant even if it doesn't progress your fertility is increased for about 3 months after so there is a hope that you will get pregnant again quicker next time. Supposedly your body learns what it is meant to do after a first pregnancy or miscarriage.

Good luck x

Thank you all for your replies i did go back for follow up hcg test and got result 223:( first one was two days ago which was 273 so it dropped which can only be a bad thing. I am still light bleeding pink no pains. Doctor told me they want me to go back for third reading of hcg in three days time. She said theresult was inconclusive. From all the internet forums i am convinced if hcg levels go down its a definate mcc?? But its puzzling me why do they want me to go back even tho she said because it might still go up since there is a little difference??? I dont want to get false hopes infact i m scared if i have ectopic pregnancy and have rupture etc although i still dont have any pains just slight light bleeding thats pink to dark pink. Sorry for tmi and thank u for all your support.

Oh also i did have internal scan too vaginal as well and they couldnt see anything at all Which probably means i have lost the baby long time ago :(
