Im feeling really tired, my breasts still hurt like mad, feel bit sick and totally bewildered. I had to deliver my dead baby boy in May this year (still miss him terribly) and now this, I've been pregnant most of the year and nothing to show for it. Luckily I already have kids or I would be a lot worse. Hopefully you don't have to wait too long, are you planning to try again soon?
Hey, so sorry about your losses, and so close too i really hope they get you some help to start mc, I feel so much better now it's over. I, too, have been pregnant alot (3 times in 2 yrs), and with nothing to show for it but a flabby belly and lots of anger! I'm not "allowed" to try again til I've had some testing, to see if there's a reason or just bad luck. But can't wait too long at my age! Have to have a heart to heart with OH to just to make sure we're on the same page with this, sigh..... big hugs...

RE: Blighted ovum


Hi Bellamamma, hopefully its just bad luck or something that can be fixed with you. I had a barage of tests in 2003 in recurrent miscarriage clinic and all tests came back fine Myself and partner have normal genotype so just bad luck to now. I personally think my present bad luck is down to age cos im nearly 40. I had a silent placental abruption and so didnt rest, was lifting, climbing stairs and running around cos I was unaware of the pending disaster, he was dead 4 wks before I spotted. I still feel so guilty but I seriously didnt know. At what stages did you have your other miscarriages? and how long did it take to concieve?

Oh that's awful, I'm so sorry! Why can't there be a red warning light or an alarm that goes off so we know something's wrong!? Not knowing's the worst! My first was feb. '10, at 11 weeks, missed mc, it was gone for 4 weeks but didn't know, had a d&c (that was after 14 months ttc, 9 months later got bfp and lost right away at 5-6 weeks, had some testing which came back normal (immune and clotting stuff, thyroid), 9 long months again, this one only to lose it at 7 wks!! Plus, am now 43 and a half so...I'm guessing it's an age thing, but would sure be nice if it were something fixable! Don't know if we'll go on at this point, our relationship really suffers as we handle our pain so differently and can't seem to understand the other's ways...iykwim! Kind of in limbo land now, just started a new job so that gives me something else to concentrate on at least part time! Where do you live, uk or us? I'm american but live in italy. Hugs

Found out I was pregnant yesterday, anembryonic today.


Hi, This is my first pregnancy and although my fiance and I do want children, we were terrified at the news. I have been off birth control for about two months and was waiting to see a new doctor to obtain a new prescription. I had an appointment with her on the 2nd of September, urine preg test was negative. A week ago, my guy and I had a whoops (we were not actively trying to have children) and I took Plan B. Since then, I began to experience lower abdominal cramping and light pink spotting. But the pains began to increase and we got nervous. Yesterday we took 2 tests that were positive. In my shock I went directly to the clinic and had another (I guess I needed someone else to tell me because I could not believe my eyes) Last night and this morning the pain increased and I feared etopic pregnancy. I just returned from the E.R. and was told that although my hcG levels are over 6500, there is no embryo. They said I was five weeks pregnant (which is strange because I had a normal cycle in August.) I was told to go home and wait for the miscarriage, but the stress of this is killing me. I just want this to end. I'm considering RU486 or something to end this. Emotionally, I think I'm okay (as long as I talk about it) because we weren't ready...and there is no baby. Whats strange is this slight feeling of inadequacy that I can't put my finger on...Its like..no we are not ready, but I wanted things to be my choice? I'm confused....Anyone ever felt this way?

D and C scheduled in two days


I can't stand the thought of waiting....I scheduled a D and C for Monday and I think this is the best decision. I feel so strange...I'm pregnant, but I'm not. Honestly, there is some relief because we were not ready for a child, but my fiance and I are both remorseful. We should have been ready for a child, we should be smarter than this....I don't know. We are managing and strangely enough bonding through this situation. I'm slightly worried about the D and C and how I will feel before, during, and after.

Okay, I'm VERY worried about how I'm going to feel.
Lets be honest.

Hi ladies.

I am so sorry you are al going through this. I found my experience was awful.

I found out at 7.5 weeks. I chose to wait naturally and wished i hadnt.

It took 8 weeks!!! I ended up taking anti sickness tablets as the nausea was awful until about 11 weeks.

At 15 weeks a D and C was scheduled but as i had started spotting i could pass it naturally. It took ten days of spotting before i passed any large clots. Then nothing for a few days then very large clots. Many of them the size of apples and larger.

I passed out and ended up in A and E with a blood transfusion.

It is always your decision but if i could have turned back time i would have had the D and C straight away.

I passed the sac 5th July and did not stop bleeding until i started a heavy dose of Norethisterne three times a day for ten days. So i spotted for 6 weeks and obviously my hormones were up the shoot. I also had hcg in my system for 8 weeks. So all i wanted to do was TTC but ended up being in limbo for nearly 4mths from start to finish.

I must add though, that despite teh massive bleeding i had no pain whatsoever!
