Hi, Im new to this website. I am really worried as I am 9 + 2 weeks pregant and have been bleeding for about a week now. Just light spotting with a few clots which got slightly heavier yesterday. But today it has stopped. I had a scan 3 days ago and was told that the baby was small and that the heartbeat can sometimes not be seen when it is that small. So they will rescan me in 4 days' time. Just wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience with a positive outcome. I have already had 2 miscarriages and am 42 now so really don't want to lose this little bun!
I bled a lot at 6 weeks one in the afternoon and one in the evening the blood started brown but then turned red. I didnt bleed anymore than that and no clots or pain - I had a scan three days later and they found twins who are now 21 months old.
I hope it all turns out ok sweetie - bleeding is very very common xxxxx
So, i went for a second scan today. the baby has grown by 2mm to 5.2mm (still very small for 10 weeks) but they still can't find a heartbeat. I now have to wait another 10 days to be rescanned so that they can find out whats going on.. nightmare. They said that it is possible that they may not find a heartbeat if the baby is that small...so I have to wait.
HI there, thanks for your reply. I am pretty sure about my lmp date - 18 August and I am fairly regular so it's quite confusing that the baby has grown but, is so much smaller than expected at this time...Really hoping that my 3rd miscarriage isn't on the cards....
It looks like that measurement is right for about 6 weeks,.. just a thought, maybe you had a chemical, or an early mc which would explain the bleeding, but became pregnant right away? You seem to be 4 weeks off, a full cycle length. It would explain also why its hard to find the heartbeat, it may still be too early! When did you get your first bfp for this pg?
HI, thanks for your replies. Got my first positive pregnancy test on 15 September - exactly 4 weeks after lmp date .... the size of the little bun does definitely indicate 4 weeks difference from what I have read. I am keeping my fingers crossed for some glimmer of hope. Don't want to miscarry again. This is definitely the longest I have gone so far (if the 10 week, not the 6 week date is correct)
