Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Started bleeding yesterday.
Went to the local EPU, had bloods taken. H rushed home from work bless him. My levels are really low already. Just got to wait it out.
I have no pain though?? I'm just bleeding heavily. Spent all day yesterday crying, today I feel better, we are both just sad. N is keeping us entertained luckily.
Crap isn't it?

Lou, so sorry to read / hear this. My thoughts are with you and H. Life can be so cruel sometimes. x

Oh Laura, I am so so sorry. Is there any hope?
12/10/2013 at 15:07
Sorry to read this, please don't loose hope a lot of ladies have had bleeds on here (me included) please rest and look after yourself, when have they asked you to go back?
12/10/2013 at 15:14
I'm not going back.
My hcg is less than five. One of the nurses even suggested that maybe it was just my period! Wtf?? I told her about the five positive pregnancy tests I did at home. Plus they did one at the EPU and it was very faintly positive.
They said as my hcg was low it was probably a completed miscarriage and if I was bleeding heavily to see my GP. That was it.
They took my blood and I went home. Got my results over the phone. H isn't impressed with the lack of support.

That sounds awful, and certainly not what you expect from people in a position of care. Sending loads of hugs, I'm so sorry that you are having to go through this
Oh, I wouldn't of been very happy with that either! How dare she say that about it just being your period, some people amaze me.
I am sorry that it's happened to you, Maybe your GP would be a good place to get some support?

They just gave me a leaflet about pregnancy of unknown location and sent me home. No-one explained anything to me. I have no idea how long I might bleed for or what to look out for, if anything. They also talked to me in the middle of the waiting room, with me trying not to cry. I had N with me and was trying to be cheerful.
The more I think about it, the more awful it was.

I would think about making a complaint to PALS about it... it sounds awful

Oh no LLL, I am sorry. Massive hugs.

so sorry to hear that you are going through this.
And i am sorry that you have been treated the way you have, that is just horrible!
I had a MC 18 months ago. I also had no pain, but it was confirmed with blood tests. I bled for maybe a week and a half, was just like a period but lasted a bit longer.
Get yourself signed off work if you can and feel that you want to, its the last place you want to be.
I hope that i have answered some of the questions that you have in your head, and please feel free to do a shout out for me to ask any more questions

LLL I'm really sorry to hear this and can't believe the way they treated you at the hospital, it's disgraceful!
When I had my loss last year, it was too early for me to see a doc or clinic so I just let my body do what it had to. In my experience as I was only 4+3 I had the same type cramps and bleed as my normal period and it didn't last longer either. I was a mess I didn't know what to do with myself and only myself and H knew.
Sending loads of hugs and a shoulder should you need it. Hope you feel a bit better soon xx

I'm so very sorry Laura_ Lou, for both the loss and how badly handled it was by the hospital, they sound so insensitive. Huge hugs, look after yourself. X

I am so sorry to read this. I cannot believe the way you were treated either, definitely make a complaint! They are in a position of care, they should be a lot more sensitive! Hope you're doing ok xxxx
