Hi. I am in a similar situation. Could someone please help??? Here's my situation. My LMP began on 1st December 2012. 2 weeks later, I had unusual brown clots, which stopped and returned 2 weeks later. I did a pregnancy test, which was positive. I went to hospital for tests. My blood tests showed my HCG levels at 8000. The internal ultrasound showed a baby measuring around 5mm. There was a small bleed visible next to the sac. The sonographer dated me at 5.5-6 weeks. This was 2 weeks more than I thought. I have PCOS so my periods are very irregular and they're very painful and heavy - the period I had on 1st December 2012 was no different to usual. Therefore, I am led to believe that my dates are correct. I returned for a second trans-vaginal ultrasound 6 weeks after the beginning of my LMP (11th Jan 2012). The sonographer said that there was no heartbeat but there had been a fraction of a milimetre of growth. I've been bleeding red fresh blood (going through around 1 sanitary towel a day with some small red stringy clots). I now have to wait 10 days to return for my 3rd scan!! What does this all mean? The nurse won't tell me much apart from that they're following guidelines. CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE! I'm going crazy not knowing what's going on.

Hi Help wanted.
Sadly it can be any number of things happening & whilst the wait is torture it is needed for them to be able to correctly assess/determine what is happening. Baby's heartbeat should normally appear on scan between 6-8wks into the pregnancy so if they haven't found it in an early scan they will normally advise you to return for a scan within your 'estimated' 8th week.
Bloodloss can occur for a number of reasons - low lying placenta, cervical sensitivity, overstretching of muscles/ligaments with uterus growth or the sad case of miscarriage. Take care of yourself and rest when you can to help ease the bleeding. Whatever happens in the next few days you can find friends/support on here. Best wishes.

I just found out that I had a triplet pregnancy, but that two of the babies don't have a heart beat at 11 weeks (I had a scan a couple of weeks ago and at that time only one baby didn't have a hearbeat, which is why they sent me back again, to see that baby would develop a heart beat or not).
My first question is shoul I have any concerns about the last baby?
I was on clomid, would this have any affect on why two of the babies didn't make it?
Thanks in advance for any help.
