Hi, ok I've been holding off asking this question online because even doctors can't seem to help me..
My partner and I did an at-home insemination on 23/09, I fell pregnant but miscarried on 19/10 (at 5w, 4d).
We then did another insemination on 30/10, I then got my 'period' (or what doctors told me was a late period) on boxing day 26/12 (at exactly 5w, 4d..again).
The thing that is puzzling me: my 'pregnancy symptoms' have been on queue throughout this entire time, but my blood and urine tests keep coming back negative. I am A- blood type so eed an anti-D injection at certain intervals throughout pregnancy. To top it off, the past 2 weeks I've developed a noticeable 'baby bump' (my partner and everyone I've shown have said it looks more like pregnancy than it does fat).
I'm experiencing most of the symptoms for a second trimester pregnancy: fluttering in stomach; breast size/shape changed; larger areola; stretch marks on sides; foggy thinking; vaginal changes etc..
I have an appointment next week to get an ultrasound (as a general health check up), but in the meantime I'm going crazy!
The only conclusion I can come to: From our first insemination, I fell pregnant with twins. One was a positive blood type, the other negative. My body produced anti-bodies and attacked the positive fetus, thus causing me to miscarry on 19/10. The other fetus, being a negative blood type, was unharmed. I've read that some women don't produce any readable hcg throughout their pregnancy..and have regular period-like bleeding..maybe I'm one of the 'lucky' few who do this??
Please help me..if you have any information or insight on this topic PLEASE, I need your help. Thank you
