March 4, at 9: Ive been tormented this whole pregnancy because of all the celebs like lily allen losing her baby. Its had me at my wits end. If it was me I would just head into the maternity ward and ask to be scanned say you havent been feeling well or have had cramps, even if you havent, i think i would just want to put my mind at rest or know either way, but if you can hold out until wed go then. Dont be planning ahead for what your going to do if it is a mmc, you will torment yourself.
Your just anxious with it being your first. March 4, at Would also like to try to hold out tho because the longer i wait,the more likely it is that significant changes will be seen. Really girls,thanks so much or taking the time to comment, gives me lots of comfort. Please God my little bean is clinging on! They did an internal scan and said that i measured at 7weeks and could see the yolk sac but no baby. There was a lot of worrying for nothing! I too have also experienced the other side of things and had a miscarriage just 8weeks before this pregnancy.
I had bleeding at 7 weeks and my GP sent me to EPU with the warning that bleeding was a bad sign and to prepare myself. They did an internal scan as they said it was much to early to see enough at 7 weeks.
I had my dates spot on and i have a little girl of 4 months. I really hope it is good news for you x March 5, at 9: If your hcg levels and progesterone levels are rising each time, this can only be good thing. Go to your gp on Monday and ask her to refer you to epu asap. I am so sorry that you, and some of the other girls here, have gone through loss of any kind. Not that I want to miscarry,but if that is what the outcome is going to be, I would rather it happen now than having to wait around for another two weeks,watching my belly grow even more.
A little bump has formed already and it is just so hard to get my head around the fact that this is more than likely going to be an unviable pregnancy. The whole thing feels so cruel! Thanks for all the advice. March 7, at 8: A couple of times,I felt a kind of stretching, like a growing pain, in my abdomen. I will hopefully speak with my GP later today and see what she has to say about it all.
Pregnancy is one messed up experience! Pls send all your good feelings our way! What is meant to be will be. March 7, at 1: Sorry — I had said positive test in my first post — that is what bfp is — big fat positive. I was saying that if you know when you got your positive test you may know that you couldnt have ovulated too late — depends on when you did your pregnancy test.
Do you know how many weeks past lmp you did you test at? March 7, at 2: Did another HPT on 26 January and got positive weeks.
I guess if I ovulated very late,it is possible that I was only just pregnant ie just a week since fertilisation on 26 jan which would make me only 8 and a half weeks now. This limbo is just horrendous. March 7, at 6: Fingers and toes still crossed for you!! Still no cramping, can only be a good thing!!
March 7, at 7: I dont know what to be hopeful about anymore. My GP just rang there. She is sending me to maternity for scan on wed. You know, I think I would cope ok if i knew I was definitely miscarrying.
All you girls have been so fantastic tho, thanks so much. At the mo no news is good news in a way I think! My heart goes out to you being stuck in limbo like this!! You poor thing — I do know what that waiting time is like but in my case I was sure of my dates too — I went for a scan at 9wks one time and only saw 6wk old on scan and although they said come back in a week I knew in my heart things were not right and I was right.
Following that when I got pregnant they couldnt see much on scan and they did the blood tests the girls have referred to above to see if levels are rising and again mine were not. I had a couple of early scans on this pregnancy for reassurance in a private clinic and I found their machine to be actually way superior to the one in the EPU.
I didnt even need a full bladder and they did both external and internal scan. The minute they put the scanner on my tummy the baby popped up with heart beating away and I was only 6wks 5 days. They did an internal as well just to double check everything especially with my history. However as I said it will depend on the clinic — mostly though they are pretty confident that they will see a heartbeat once you pass the 7wk mark.
I dont know what to say to you — the fact that you have pregnancy symptoms is good and the stretching pains etc that you describe sound encouraging so hopefully it was just where the baby was lying and a bad scanning machine and the next time you go all will be ok.
Are you paying the private clinic for a second scan?? If so, would you not just think of going to the early pregnancy unit in your maternity hospital which would be free??
Especially in case there might be a problem as you would be referred there after next scan anyway …… March 8, at 9: I see your gp is referring you to the maternity tomorrow — sorry to hear there was no growth on the last scan. Fingers crossed for a miracle tomorrow …… take care xx March 8, at 1: Just been reading your posts…I really hope you get positive news.
It could really go any way…a friend of mine went through slightly similar, and all was ok, her dates were off by about week and half. For me, mine was a missed mc. A scan at 8 weeks showed sac, but no baby. Had another scan a week later, and was still same. Had had no bleeding or cramping etc, no signs of mc. Was hard to believe as had nothing to suggest had mc, even still had morning sickness. So, as I say, it can go either way, and am praying you get good results.
The waiting is just awful tho. X March 8, at 1:
