    Hi everyone ..Im brand new here just looking for advice.Found out I was preg last nov and started spotting at 7 weeks.Ultrasound at 7 weeks showed no gestational sac just thickening of endometrium.HCG results showed lowering numbers confirming miscarriage.Dr actually told me I might not bleed as i "have nothing to bleed" Started heavy miscarriage bleeding a week later including greyish tissue (sorry TMI)which lasted ten days.Then nothing for 20 days until i got what i thought was my AF for 5 days.After AF i took left over HPT to check that it was back to neg and it isnt.Blood work now shows my HCG at 125.Dr not sure if im preg again or if it is left over HCG after miscarriage...I am totally confused!!If my miscarriage was so early that the sac hadnt developed yet why is my HCG taking so long to get to neg (its been 4+ weeks since miscarriage bleeding started).I was never given an explaination of what type of miscarriage i was having but if it was chemical why did i only start bleeding at 8 weeks? the doc wants to send me for ultrasound but since my original ultrasound showed nothing it will still show nothing now,and if i am preg again its too early to show up on scan so i feel like id be wasting my money on a scan. Any advice would be appreciated thanks!

    Default srry ausmum

    Sorry that you are having these complications to deal with. After a difficult d and c with complications - heavy bleeding, i was warned that if AF doesn't show, there could be left over conception matter which would still leave the body convinced that it was pregnant - fortunately my AF did arrive and just before it did, i got a negative pregnancy test. After the d and c i bled for a week and then spotted on and off, it took almost 4 weeks to ovulate - i felt it in the left tube and then another 2 weeks after for me to get my period which was actually more normal than i would have imagined - just 4 days like my normal cycle and nothing too heavy.

    I would go for an ultrasound because they will be able to tell if there is anything left in there - also if you are pregnant, a yolk sac appears very early and you don't have to act on it.

    anyway, i haven't been in your situation. I hope you find some answers xx

    Hi All

    Ausmum - I would go have an ultrasound to be on the safe side.

    AFM - Really bad day emotionally as a friend was being rather insensitive (thought playing around that she was pg was being funny) so did a bit. It was also a really long day that ended with a Dr apt with no results. The hospital had only sent the covering letters not the results. So I wont find out what happened to bub. But am going to see Ob/Gyn tomorrow so hopefully will be pg again in no time.

    Hope everyones day was ok.

    Regards

    Roz

    Default Can I join you?

    Hi ladies,

    Just wondering if I can join your thread. DH and I found out today that we have lost our second bub. We had an early scan last week to be told instead of looking 7 wks Peanut looked like he was only 6 wk and 2 days (which worked out to be when I had a bit of spotting) but we tried to stay positive for the week's wait as my HCG levels were rising, boobs were growing, appetite was through the roof and all other PG symptoms seemed good. Anyway we had the confirmation scan today and there is no HB and the little one had not grown at all since last week.

    Both feel completely numb/empty, well maybe DH isn't completely empty - more angry. Can't believe we are having to live through this a second time.

    Seeing as I have not bled at all and there is stuff inside me I will have to have another D&C. What fun. Think we might pay to go private this time last experience was horrendous.

    Anyway thanks for listening, I haven't taken the time to read all the rest of your stories but I am very sorry for your losses. Sending you all no doubt we need them!

    Em

    Em - crying as I type. I know what your going through..I didnt realise that you have lost your precious bundle..it only seems a short time ago I was colouring you pink. I am so sorry. Truly devastated for you. Brings back all those horrible memories. I am so very sorry for you and your DH. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Just can't believe it.

    As for D&C - go private if you had a horrible experience public. My first experience was public...never again...so cold...but not through the fault of the overworked nurses and doctors. I have always gone private since and found the experience more bearable than the first. I am so very very sorry.

    Sorry to hear about your loss Melameen .

    I went public with both my D&Cs, the 1st was very horrid but was due to being sent to a hospital with no mothers / maternity ward - wont go into it but the staff was not trained. 2nd was still a very sad time but was at a more appropriate hospital and was offered counciling afterwards.

    Again sorry for your loss.

    Regards

    Hi,

    I have just read thru all the posts and it makes me feel better, not so alone.

    Went for my 12w scan on Friday and found that bub hadnt grown since 8 weeks Whilst at the hospital i started to misscarry naturally ( i was kept for 8 hours ) but it was very slow so they gave me some tablets and sent me home.

    TMI - I am certain i passed just about everything last night, it was horrible,but my mum was with me - she wouldnt let me look but said she thought that would be about it. I kept passing clots for about the next 5 hours, there was so much blood but today i have slight cramping and a medium period. I hope it is over.

    Had to tell DD (she is 5) she was really sad - i dont know if i should keep trying to talk to her about it all just let it go. I have found her a couple of times today sitting by herself looking ready to cry but she wont talk to me - she was so excited to be getting a little baby .

    i have to go back to the hospital on wednesday to see if i need a d&c - i hope not.

    Anyway thanks for letting me share.

    Mum of Anneliese - so sorry for your loss. Sending you lots of

    Your timing is similar to my first pg (I didn't make 12 week scan but Squirt had stopped growing at 8wks) but I didn't pass much myself so needed D&C. This time again I will need a D&C. Not sure whether it is better to let your body do it naturally or have the op? Sounds like your body has passed most of it naturally so maybe you are able to spare yourself the procedure and try grieve on your own.

    Anyway you are in my thoughts. Not sure what is the correct approach with kids as we don't have any ourselves yet, poor little girl would have been so excited and now having to deal with the loss herself while her mummy is sad.

    I hope you get through the next few days and that your little girl is okay. Let us know what happens with you needing a D&C or not. There is very good support on here all the ladies are very kind.

    Em xx

    Melameen and mum of annaliese so sorry for your losses. Sending you both

    AFM - I have my post 6 week check up on Thursday and I'm just dreading it. The last time I was in the OBs office we were arranging for me to be induced and seeing Veronica on the ultrasound - such a happy time, I had no idea how badly things would turn out. We aren't expecting to get a reason as to why either - just waiting on the test they did on the placenta but the OB didn't think that would tell us anything. At least I should get the all clear for myself after my emergency c-section.

    A couple of days last week I just felt like I was going backwards. I guess that is why they say grief is like a rollercoaster...

    I constantly feel like I should be doing something else (I guess that's because I had thought I'd be busy with a newborn) and when I go somewhere I think what that would have been like with Veronica. I sometimes just feel like I'm treading water waiting/hoping that things will get better.

    Hi girls.

    ilostmyangel -what a beautiful way to explain to your daughter. Brought tears to my eyes.

    to all of you who need them. I certainly do. Off to hospy for my D&C later today and I am very nervous. Going private with a very kind doctor so I'm sure it will be better than last time, but still not the most fun a girl can have really?!

    Got referred by my lovely GP to another gynae on 9 Feb who will be doing tests to work out why this is happening. She said even though lots of places make you wait for 3 or 4 miscarriages she will send me to someone who will get the bottom of it right away. She is a darling.

    Got another specialist apt next thurs to find out about my wonky bladder that we found out about with the last m/c (retains a lot of urine) so I am having a very exciting time of it! Oh and I am booked in for acupuncture treatment on 30th with a lady who specialises in women's health (and hopefully stress relief) so I will have been thoroughly poked and prodded in the next few weeks.

    That's all from me. Going to walk the dog and then come home and keep myself busy until DH takes me to hosp. I have no interest in seeing anyone else at the moment, not even close friends or his family (mine are a million miles away in South Africa), I just can't be bothered with anyone.

    Bye girls,

    Em

    PS: Poppess if I don't get on here again before Thursday - will be thinking of you when you go for your check up. No doubt it will be hell but we are all thinking of you and hope you will get through it okay. xXx
