I probably shouldn't say this but on the day I started bleeding bright red blood I was actually willing if to get heavier just so this would be over (I'm sure I'll regret that if this baby is actually born). Then when it stopped I was scared to hope, scared to go to the toilet, to lift up DS etc. now bleeding again and I'm just so tired. Thanks for the advice ladies, I've tried the antibiotic thing but it didn't work, I don't drive so I think I might whisper to someone that I need a tampon and see if that helps. It's really good to have so many people here who understand.
    I guess I am a bit of an optimist. I think if I wasn't, I wouldn't ever want to be pregnant myself seeing the things I see at work. I'm so sorry you are going through this op. I feel my first post was taken the wrong way by some people just from the responses I read but I hope you know I wasn't trying to make you think telling everyone was the best thing to do. I just honestly feel pregnancy should be celebrated. You never know how long you might have with these little things growing inside of us so I personally prefer to stay positive and embrace the positivity from my family and friends if you know what I mean. I know it's not for everyone but it's just what I do. I've had a lot of loss in my life so staying positive is the only thing that has kept me out of a padded room
    Good luck with everything OP. I am thinking of you.

    You do make a good point. After our first loss, I do share the news of subsequent early pregnancies with a few close friends. It is nice to celebrate, as you say, and they understood the stress of being in limbo and were lovely and supportive.

    I did this, no one notices if you don't drink from the glass in your hand, they only notice when you decline a drink in the first place.

    I had a hens night the other week and I worded the bartender up to give me lemonade in a champagne flute all night. He was awesome and he made sure I always had a 'drink' in my hand :-)

    Just thought I'd update this post. My little angel's heart stopped beating just over a week ago, coincidentally on the day I wrote this post. Cruelly, I started experiencing strong and new pregnancy symptoms after it died, which made me feel a bit confident for the first time. I'm glad I kept the news to myself and going through this reaffirms to me that no one should be forced, tricked or manipulated into revealing a pregnancy before they are ready. This is hard enough as it is.

    Oh no. I'm so sorry for your loss. I agree with you regarding keeping a pregnancy private in the early stages.

    Oh jeez I'm so sorry for your loss, I'm an idiot and read the first post and commented without reading to the end.

    That's heartbreaking news. So very very sorry.
