I am currently between 6-8 weeks pregnant, first pregnancy, i am unsure of the dates because originally i thought i was 9 weeks, however an ultrasound showed the dates to be wrong.
Sat 26th May, (5days ago) I noticed light bleeding and mild cramping. My partner and i attended the ED early that evening as we weren't sure what it meant or what to expect.
In E.D, I had an transvaginal ultrasound that showed a heartbeat, although a slow one (81bpm) with a measurement of 2.7mm crown to rump. There was no evidence of bleeding in the uterus from what the ultrasound could pick up, so i was reassured that everything is okay, they took bloods - FBE, U&E, anti-bodies, and they all came back within normal ranges.
After the ultrasound, the bleeding increased from light (only when i wiped) to be medium flowing. The hospital discharged me and said to wait a few days and contact G.P, but it all looks okay, and gave me a diagnosis of 'threatened miscarriage'
The bleeding continued at a medium flow with mild to no cramping for three days, and then in the last 24 hours has turned to a dark brown thick discharge (?old blood?) No tissue has been expelled.
I have no idea whether i am still pregnant or not, i have taken a pregnancy test again this week, even though i know that is a useless tool as even if i have miscarriaged, there will still be HCG present, thus giving a positive test.
I have attempted to contact my G.P, she has no appointments this week, but i have left several messages for her to contact me, basically i just want a referral form to have a follow up ultrasound and a pathology slip for HCG levels. so far i have not had a return phone call - 5 days since being discharged from hospital.
I am almost at a stage where i am beside myself not knowing whether i am still pregnant or not, my partner and i have assumed the worse and are prepared to deal with the negative outcome, but it's the not knowing part that is frustrating.
I have written this in an attempt to see if anyone has had a similar experience? what happened? What was the outcome?
