I suffered an eptopic pregnancy last year and started bleeding at 7.5 weeks, presumed it was a normal miscarraige. rushed to a and e a week later with an eptopic. I've fell pregnant again now and not telling a soul, only me and my partner know. im 11 weeks, still awaiting a dating scan appointment and still waiting to see a midwife so i have nobody to ask. (gp useless). my symptoms are easing off now and i'm so worried about going to my scan and not seeing anything or the baby has no heartbeat and stopped growing weeks ago. i'm driving my self crazy, which i know i shouldn't.i just need to see my baby now and know everything is ok

I'm about 7-8 weeks pg, told last week possible delayed misc as no fetal pole seen on early uss but also have a retroverted uterus which can make us difficult. Hcg levels have dropped by 600 (still 16300) and started getting a light brown discharge so assuming that I am I fact miscarrying - due to go back Friday for a repeat scan. Does anyone have any ideas how long it should take for bleeding to start properly or if there is any chance pg could still be viable - still having all the symptoms - I just need to know as seems so unfair

i really dont want to worry you but I would go & get checked out... Chances are that everything is fine as everyone is telling you... But.,. your story is pretty much identical to mine... And at 8w6d i went to the ER to 'reassure myself that I was just being paranoid' but sadly found that id had a mmc approx. 2 weeks before. . I was only having very mild back ache & a tiny tiny 3 spots of watery blood... But i lost the few symptoms i had .. Same as you... My boobs went back to being fine (which was my only real major symptom) & my appetite came back. I had never felt sick or had any other real symptoms... The only one that continued was an increased sense of smell.
if your docs dont want to scan you, they can do a quantitative HCG blood test....
Do 2 tests 48 hours apart... If your HCG goes up... Thats a great sign, if they go down, it means you have likely miscarries.
hope you have a happy turn out & please keep us posted x

Nessie B.. really sorry to hear this.... I have just had a miscarriage too. I went to the ER aT 8w6d & scan showed baby died at about 6 weeks. I waited until 9 w3 days & still had not started miscarrying properly (only a few tiny clots, very light bleeding that i wasnt even changing a pad a day & brown, stringy blood). After waiting for it to happen naturally & it not, i chose to take medication to kickstart it. My OB told me that it was absolutely my choice & that i could continue to wait, take the meds or have a d&c... Honestly you need to do what is right for you... I personally felt like i needed togain some control over my body & the situation so that i could begin to grieve, get closure & move on.
bug hugs & keep ys posted.. We are all here for you x

Thanks SW2 that's how I feel at the minute about needing to take control - my problem is I had a very complicated c/s with my last baby and as a result anticipate lots of scar tissue and adhesions because of this I don't want a d&c incase it makes things worse and am worried about the medical route - I guess I'll have to see what they suggest on Friday x

Nessie B... Sorry to hear that. Hopefully your docs will help you through things when you go on friday. Keep us posted. I can understand your concern re the previous scarring & not wanting to cause too much pressure. You could try drinking raspberry leaf tea... People recommend that as a natural way to start labour so it might help (more gently) bring things on for you? X

Hi Nessie , sorry to hear you're going through this , I would second what SW2 said , I had 2 mmc's and my body hadn't recognised the 2nd had failed at 5 weeks - got to nearly 9 weeks , had scan to confirm the pregnancy had failed , was due to go back after 5 days to get meds if hadn't happened spontaneously , Bought some raspberry leaf tea that day ,( had used it previously to induce labour n strengthen contractions ) drank 3 cups n passed our baby a midnight , was very sad but was so pleased we stayed at home n it was natural , and as you can see we tried again n am now 21weeks pregnant , sending you lots of love, good luck for the future x x

Congrats evemum... Its so reassuring to hear positive stories after the sadness of a miscarriage.. I know I'm probably like every other person on here who has their moments of worrying if this will keep repeating itself for them.
