Well, there goes... Found out I was pregnant back in January, obviously over the moon as we'd recently got married and this was literally the icing on the cake! Had some bleeding at the beginning of feb, not too much but it worried me so went to the EPU to get it checked out. Turns out it was a suspected MIssed miscarriage but was told to come back a week later to know for sure as the sac was measuring at 6w 1d so there was a slight possibility (I knew then there wasn't). Went back a week later to find my fears were confirmed. Was obviously heart broken but I did except it after the first scan. Was asked what I wanted to do so opted for the natural approach, nothing happened in 2 wks so then opted for the medical management option as I was terrified of having a GA with the ERPC! Went in on March 8th, took the pill and returned 2 days later for the second (vaginal) pill... Was in there for 9hrs, pure agony with hardly any blood - joy! Came home, still no blood... Couple of little clots and then that was it! Returned on March 22nd for another scan (feel like I have more of a sex life with the internal scanner that my hubby these days - in fact I know I do!) only to be told the sac had grown and was still going strong, plus I had a cyst on my ovary as well! Had enough by this point so just told them I needed the ERPC as soon as possible. Went in on 29th March, wasn't as bad as I thought and wish I'd opted for it at the beginning but ho hum!
My question is..... And sorry for waffling..... Did anyone have on and off bleeding? Didn't really bleed on the day but 5 days later and I've started bleeding, no cramps though... Oh and (tmi alert) it smells really irony! Is that normal?? I havent pressed my nose up to it or anything, im not that gross.... just noticed it more than I ever have before. Also, did anyone have a follow up scan? Coz they haven't offered me anything, just on antibiotics. Is that right?
Sorry for going on!! X
Hi there, I had the ERPC on friday just gone after finding out beans heart had stopped. I have had on and off bleeding since then, sunday I hardly bleed at all, monday it was the flood gates had opened and went through bed etc. Today its like a period again. I was told that this could go on for up to two weeks. I was given nothing apart from miscarriage leaflets. I was told that if you have brown discharge and it smells, then I would need to see a doctor as I could have an infection and need antibiotics. I decided on the erpc as there was no follow up scans after because the last thing I wanted was to sit with a load of pregnant people at the moment. I hope this is some help to you and I am sorry you are going through this as well.
Hi kelly4, it is truly awful as I was (am) so desperate for a bubs.... But I suppose these things happen unfortunately! Very surprised they didn't offer you antibiotics, thought that was the normal procedure after an erpc... Obviously not. I'm hoping it's all gone and this is just the normal bleeding you getting follow an erpc, but after having all the issues I've had over the last couple of months I can't help but think I'm still not over the worst of it. Just me being negative I hope. I must admit I thought I was being overly positive when I didn't have much bleeding, so I was like 'oh poo' when I looked down there today. It's still early days so I suppose I just have to play the waiting game.
So sorry you've had to go through all this as well... Such a shame that something so positive can turn into something so heart breaking in a matter of days/weeks. X
I know exactly how you feel, you think that you are on the road to recovery and then more comes out, and you think give me a break. This baby was a total surprise and now I just want to try again, but obviously there is a big cloud over it. So frustrated, hopefully we can get through this stronger
It's infuriating..... Was trying before we decided to get married, then postponed it until afterwards so we could tie the knot in sunny Cyprus, and then tried as soon as we got back in September. Doesn't sound like we were trying for long but I was off the pill for a year before we took the break so it does feel like we've been trying a while. When I see that positive sign I was literally doing somersaults around the living room.... That was short lived. So sad. Too scared to even think about trying again now coz I'm terrified it'll happen again! Hubby is eager but I'm very dubious.
I defo think this has made stronger, I surprised myself with how well I dealt with it, but something inside died when flump did. Big hugs! X
