Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Hi I'm desperate for a bit of advice, about 3 weeks ago I had a miscarriage at 5weeks and 4days... I bled for 5 days a heavy and painful flow... As soon as I stopped bleeding myself and my partner started trying again!!! I'm getting the whole pregnancy symptoms again, last few days I've been very emotional, my nipples are darkening again (sorry for the info), feeling a tad bit nausea, bloating. I'm becoming very obsessed with the whole pregnancy thing lately, to the point I'm even keeping track of my cervix, which seems to be high and closed, but yesterday was low and open... because I haven't had a period since the 13th August I can't keep track of my dates due to the miscarriage 😩 Which is obviously making me a lot more paranoid and obsessed.... I done a pregnancy test yesterday, and I was sure I could see a very faint line.... Everybody is telling me just wait another couple of weeks, do a test then!!! Hahaha I'm way to impatient, I just wanna know has anybody been in a similar situation, as it's frustrating not being able to calculate my dates by my period...!!!!!!! X

Good morning BeckyLou. I was very recently in the same position as you. In July I found out I was pregnant. An early scan put me at 5+ 6 but unfortunately 3 days later I had a miscarriage. Anyways 6 weeks after the miscarriage I still did not have a period but lots of pregnancy symptoms and a positive pregnancy test. I had bloods taken to determine what was going on 7 weeks after the miscarriage when they told me I still had pregnancy hormones in my system which were giving me the symptoms and the positive tests. Repeated weekly blood tests showed that my hormone levels were going down but in the end it took 12 weeks for the hormones to go back to zero and my period to return. Maybe you could speak to your dr about a blood test to see what is going on as it may be a new pregnancy but it could also be residual hormones from the miscarriage. good luck with everything.

It's just confusing Earthangel, i done a pregnancy test after a week off having the bleed, I was told by the EPU to do one, and if it was positive then I was to go back up the hospital to talk about further arrangements of a D and C.... But the test was negative... And as bad and heartless as it sounds, when I finished my bleed I felt normal (if that makes any sense) all the pregnancy symptoms had gone... My levels were low before the miscarriage, I was only at 28, and the bleed and pains during the miscarriage were awful, I honestly thought I was in labour all over again..... Just driving me insane and docs, nurses are all saying the same thing wait a couple of weeks 😡.... thank u thou for replying xx

it doesn't sound bad or heartless to feel back to normal. if you had a negative test after the mc then it could very well be a new pregnancy. unfortunately I guess it is just a really frustrating waiting game. I did read somewhere that if you have no period between a mc and a new pregnancy you date it from the day you actually miscarried not the day you started bleeding before the miscarriage happened. I was a bit sad and was doing lots of research between my last mc and the blood tests to see what was going on to see how things would be dated if I was having a new pregnancy. Think my levels took so long to go down as 3 days before the mc my level was 3454. I will keep my fingers crossed for you and hope all goes well.

😢 sooooo sorry to hear that Earthangel it's a awful thing to go through, I can't begin to imagine how ur hormones were behaving before nd after the mc, my Hcg levels generally started at 44 then I had a blood test 24hrs later for them to b 28, the following day I started bleeding...... i read somewhere as soon u stop bleeding that's wen your hormones should be back at 0, I dunno how true it is thou I read so much different bits and bobs of information, it's no wonder I'm an obsessed freak lol..... Like the whole cervix positions etc etc.... Thank u I really hope the best for u, and u get a positive pregnancy test soon my lovely.... Thoughts nd prayers are with u... xxx

Hiya BeckyLou. How are you? Have you done anymore tests? I was planning to wait until after Christmas to start trying again but my heart is overruling my head and hubby and I have decided to not try but not be careful either and see what happens. Fingers crossed it is meant to be but hopefully a more relaxed approach from me might help as I am a bit of a control freak with these things sometimes ha ha . Anyway I hope you are well.

Hey Earthangel I'm very well thank u...... How's u??? Lol I've done 4 more tests hahahaha, I can see a slight positive on 3 of them there the ones that can detect early HCG before ur period is even due lol the other one is a cheap one I see and just brought (I'm obsessed), and as u well can imagine theres no pink line 😡 More confused now..... But I think I'm going to wait for another couple of weeks, try and be a bit patient lol.... awwwwwwe that's great news Hun I hope to hear ur pregnant very soon, we need some baby dust and very soon lol.... Hope ur well other than that.... Xxx

All good here. I have a 3 year old son and he has had me laughing all day. Apparently he wants to be either Father Christmas or a naughty purple minion when he grows up!! Oh bless you - I was exactly the same a couple of years back. I ended up doing 14 tests over the course of 2 weeks - eeekk. I had 7 positives and 7 negatives . Turned out I wasn't pregnant but all this ttc has definitely made me a little obsessed and crazy ha ha. I will keep everything crossed for you and really hope that it is a BFP for you. I think we all need some baby dust. Let me know how you get on.
