I ha a miscarriage in October at 11 weeks and was so pleased to find I was pregnant again. I had really been struggling and this made everything okay again, I was so happy.

I should be 7+6 today. I had been feeling very sick lately and took that as a really positive sign that Thai time things were doing okay.

Yesterday I didn't feel quite as sick and did another of test last night. I got a real shock that it wasn't as clear as the previous ones I did, which has been really clear. I didn't say anything to DP though.

Hes just left for work and I did another test and it's even fainter. I'm devastated as I'm sure now that I'm losing this one too.

No bleeding - but I didn't start bleeding last time until 11 weeks, when it was found it was a blighted ovum.

I'm so worried and don't know what to do.

Ring your Gp and explain your worries. You might not get anywhere but at least you can feel like you are doing something. With your history it is not like you are worrying for no reason.

Good luck

Thank you for your reply. I have rung the GP and am seeing someone at 11.40 at the surgery. I think they are just going to send me for blood tests though Sad

Have rung DP and he's leaving work early to come with me.

Oh Floy, it is so hard when you've had one MC, please try not to read too much into the strength of the line though, from what I understand the line strength can vary from test to test, and has nothing to do with the amount of HCG in your system. When I miscarried in June, I took a test when I first started bleeding and it was stronger than the test I'd done a few weeks before, but I was miscarrying so the strong line meant nothing. With this pregnancy I did three tests with the same urine sample, and even though all the tests were the same brand and picked up the same level of HCG, each test varied massively in how strong the line was from strong to very faint.

I hope your GP has managed to put your mind at rest, if not maybe your EPU has a drop in service and you could go & get a scan done? x

Thanks Helen, thats reassuring. I never thought of trying that.

Well I saw the GP and he sent me for a blood test. I was able to get up there straight away and it was marked as urgent. So I called this afternoon for the results and the doc rang me back.

He said the results confirmed I was pregnant (expected obv.), but that the levels indicated I was twelve weeks instead of 7+6! he's booked me in for a scan at the hospital on Monday. He thought maybe my dates were wrong, but I'm definite I had a bleed (even though it was only 3/4 days). I suppose the other possibility could be twins Hmm

Either way, I feel a bit happier but until I see a heartbeat I won't be sure.

That sounds more positive Smile
Good luck tomorrow at the scan...really hope it's a happy outcome.

Well sadly there wasn't good news at the scan today; no heartbeat and measuring around 6 weeks.

I am having another scan a week on Friday, but I don't think there will be any change.

EthelredOnAGoodDay · 13/02/2012 17:12

Oh Floydie, so sorry to hear this. Fingers crossed for a good result for you. Xxx

slinkyboo · 13/02/2012 21:03

I'm sorry too Sad

isoldeone · 13/02/2012 22:29

I just wanted to say theres someone out there (me) that understands how utterly shit this limbo feels because you hope ( like me) that 2nd time round it's a different story. If I add another message I hope this has a positive outcome for you xxx

helenlouisey · 14/02/2012 08:04

Oh floydie, is there a chance you are slightly out with your dates? Thinking of you and will keep everything crossed for your scan next week x
