Hi, I'm just looking to see if anyone could help me out a little bit. I had a blood test took on Monday 1st and was told my horomones had drop and I would have a miscarriage. Well I have been bleeding but its now just spotting but i don't know why but something is telling me I'm still pregnant. I know my body and I can tell something is different. I when I found out I was pregnant I did have a belly so my family thought I could of been carrying twins. my tummy has gone down but still got a bump. is it possible that I could still be pregnant? i just don't know what to feel now :'( I feel stupid going to doctors and telling them this. Thank you x

Hi BaysMummy. Sorry you're going through this. Unfortunately, the only way you're going to find out what's going on is to go have a scan. Don't worry about bothering your doctor or EPU - that's what they're there for. Hope you get good news hun xx

My family are telling me to do another pregnancy test (digital) one to see if my dates had changed cus if they have then I'm obv still pregnant but I know that even if I did miscarriage that it could still come up pregnant but I'm more scared. I know I should just go to the doctors but I know they won't do anything other than tell me that it's a very horrible thing that's happen and it's normal to feel how I feel but I just don't understand why I feel like I do right now :'(
thank you for your reply xx

They should send you for a scan regardless - whether it be to check everything's ok, or if they believe you are mc'ing to check the pregnancy is gone. I had a scan Monday and was told our baby is probably dead because there was no heartbeat however they booked me in for another scan Monday to confirm. I haven't had a blood test.
It doesn't sound right to me that they're basing everything they're telling you on blood tests alone - surely they need to have a look and see what's going on?? I'd go back and insist on a scan.
I know how devastatingly difficult the waiting is, sending you big hugs xx

hiya id get in touch with epu and tell them you need a scan to give you a definite outcome as a blood test alone is not enoughxx

Sorry late reply, I've had no appointment for a follow up. I've retested to see if the dates changed etc, but came back negative. I guess my minds playing tricks :'(
