Scan tomorrow and can't sleep

I had an early scan last week, no heartbeat seen but put down to being too early, dates put back a week, and a follow up booked for a weeks time (today). I had a bleed over the weekend that makes me strongly suspect I've had a miscarriage (I have a strong history of them and have had 4 already) so I'm expecting bad news tomorrow. My husband is being irritatingly optimistic and it's now got me not sleeping.

I don't know why I'm posting this I guess to just get it out.

I've had way too many too, it's awful Flowers venting helps, therapy has been saving my grace.

I think too myself prepare for the worst and hope for the best, i know that's a bit twee but it helps me.

I also have an over optimistic DH who I think often knows it is not going to be good news, because he knows I know my body but he is trying his best to get through it too, as there are no words to describe how awful it is for both of us.

I really hope this is the time your wrong Flowers

My words and grammar all over the place, very tired.

Lemondrop09 · 16/03/2017 23:46

I don't know what to say except it must be so hard for you, and I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. Flowers

Thank you. I don't know what to say or do either. I have to go to work afterwards too which is going to be a nightmare on no sleep let alone no sleep and bad news. It's all a bit shit.

That's awful play really hope u get the news u want...can you not call in sick at work either way give yourself a break from eveything xxxx

No advice but I can't sleep either and just wanted to say I hope it's good news.

My friend has sadly had multiple Miscarriages over the past couple of years and is now 13 weeks, after early bleeds and similar scan news. So hopefully this will be you later today. Thinking of you Flowers

Here giving support. Really hope it goes well at the scan Flowers

I had some bleeding in both my last pregnancy and this one. I know you're experiences have always been negative ones, but at least today you will know.

play good luck for today. I am rooting with all I have for you x

ethelfleda · 17/03/2017 07:15

Good luck for today and I hope everything is ok for you Flowers

Another inconclusive one.
It's grown, which is something. Last week had measurements of 16 10 6 today 16 18 8 but couldnt see a bean for definite just an area of contrast in the sac. She's going to rescan in 10 days but only because I've been so sick this week. If I wasn't still symptomatic she would say it's not progressing.

I know it's hard to keep positive but I understand what you are going through. At least there's growth and these 10 days will be so hard to wait but hang on to the knowledge that there has been some growth x

DuRezidal · 17/03/2017 09:35

There has been some growth though, surely if non viable it would not be growing.

How many weeks are you now?

PlayOnWurtz · 17/03/2017 09:37

By my dates I'm 8+4 by their dates I'm 7+

Sounds promising so far.
Fingers crossed for you

PlayOnWurtz · 17/03/2017 09:54

Thanks. They can't definitively see a baby in there at the moment which is why it's inconclusive.

OP posts:
Lemondrop09 · 17/03/2017 09:57

How frustrating for you to have not got a conclusive answer. Some growth is hopegilly a good sign.

Had the sac grown the right amount between scans, to suggest it was consistently and still growing? By 7 weeks, I'd have thought they'd find a heartbeat (sorry, I'm not trying to be negative).

PlayOnWurtz · 17/03/2017 10:24

No that's exactly how I'm already thinking.

OP posts:
DuRezidal · 17/03/2017 10:28

Did they see a heartbeat?

Can't imagine how this must feel. Are you still going into work? Take the afternoon off if you need it, although maybe a distraction would be good?

PlayOnWurtz · 17/03/2017 10:50

I did. But my lovely boss has just sent me home saying she's surprised I came in. Strict instructions to f off and relax lol

Lemondrop09 · 17/03/2017 11:59

Oh thank goodness! Good on her. I think you need a big hug off you DH, a nice bath, some ridiculous chick flicks and your own body weight in chocolate!

Lemondrop09 · 19/03/2017 19:04
