I hope this is ok for me to be posting here, as I haven't officially miscarried yet. I am deeply sorry for anyone reading this who has suffered a loss (or several). I guess I'm hoping you may be able to offer me some advice and info as I want to know what I'm in for and prepare myself mentally as much as humanly possible.
I've just been told by my GP that its highly likely my pregnancy has failed, and I have no choice but to wait another week for confirmation. Its early - 8 weeks since my LMP, 5 weeks since my BFP. (I won't go into long detail about why he thinks its failed - but its dates combined with scan results combined with spotting, and the conclusion is not great). I should be 8 weeks, they only saw an empty, oddly shaped sac - that's the main thing.
I'm feeling frustrated, anxious, impatient, and very much in the dark. If I do get confirmation of failure, it will be 2 days before xmas. Merry f*&king xmas to me. I have 15 relatives coming here xmas day, and I'm so scared of having a big bleed out that day.
Is there anything I can do? What is the likelihood I'll MC that particular day and will it render me useless or just be like a heavy period? I know its not something anyone can answer really.... there is only an empty sac so I'm hoping its not too bad? What can I expect if the pregnancy fails at such an early stage exactly? NB I've been spotting brown for 3 weeks now and just recently a little red with the brown. So maybe this is the start?
