last saturday i thought i was 8wks and 3 day pregnat with my second baby. We conceived naturally and I used a Clear blue Indicator Pregnancy test. I hadn't had much morning sickness and felt well in my self, by breasts really swelled and were sore and I could no longer fit into my jeans. During the afternoon i started bleeding, only lightly more like bloody mucus ( apologies for TMI) we went straight to see a doctor who booked me in for an early scan. I was told to come back if it got extremently heavy or if i got severe pain with it. He said it didnt neceesarily mean i was having a miscarriage. But other than that I just had to wait for the scan. I continued to bleed , and it got heavier during the week. I went for the scan on Friday morning, thinking I would either be told i had miscarried or that my baby was ok.

I was not prepared for what the scan results showed - There were 3 yolk sacks!! But only one of them had a feotal pole, which from measurments could only be 5 weeks gestation!! IT was too early to have a heart beat so now i have to wait another 10 days for another scan to see if by baby has a heartbeat.

I am still bleeding but it is getting lighter and now i dont know if i lost my baby at 5 weeks and have started bleeding at 8 weeks or if the test was wrong.

I dont know if the other yolk sack will also have babies develope in them!?!?

I am so confused, scared, worried, anxious!?!?!?

THe mid wife said that my HCG levels would have been very hugh due to the conceiving more than one baby and so the test said i was further along that i thought.

Has anything like this ever happened to anyone??

do you have regular cycles? is is possible that the baby would be five weeks rather than eight weeks?

yes my cycles have always been pretty regular. I have to admit we were pretty shocked when the test said i was about 4 weeks pregnant, but just assumed it was correct - as it had been with my son before.

I really want the test to have been wrong, but dont know what to make of of only one yolk sack having a baby, is it too late for the other two to develop??

The waiting is driving me crazy!!
