    Hello everyone,

    I'm in limbo atm as I found out I was pregnant a week or so ago. I had the faintest line at 15DPO and didn't get a more clear positive until 22DPO.

    Ever since 10DPO I would spot intermittently with pink or brown blood which didn't worry me but the day before last in the morning I felt there was more discharge than usual. It was clear with streaks of pink but as I monitored it through out the day it turned brown in the afternoon while slowly increasing. In the evening it had stained my knickers and turned a rusty to red colour. I was completely hysterical and immediately assumed I was miscarrying. I was still bleeding the next morning (yesterday, 4th Nov 2020) and it looked as though AF was coming, it was increasing in flow, turning more red and had bits of tissue and small clotting when I wiped. I was completely disheartened.

    We went to the emergency ward so they could give me an early scan and try to find out what is going on. - Some back story to this - I chart my BBT and have been doing it since October when we started TTC. I didn't ovulate in October according to my charts and I also never had a period that month. So the doctors kept assuming the baby was 10 weeks even tho I kept saying I didn't ovulate that month. When I showed them my chart they then confirmed that the embryo is likely to be younger than they originally thought.

    My scan revealed that there was no gestational sac. This could be for various reasons: the pregnancy is still too early and no sac has formed, I lost the sac (which is what I think), or it could indicate an ectopic pregnancy.

    They did a physical examination and asked if I was feeling any pain or cramping which I wasn't and haven't really. Perhaps some mild cramping but definitely no pain ever. When she pressed on my right side I felt a bit of discomfort but that's it. When they cleaned my cervix they told me it was closed and still in the pregnancy position. That the blood was old, whatever was causing it. They took my bloods and I have to go back on Sunday. On Monday they can tell me more.

    I am still spotting today but much much less and my BBT is still high. I would have assumed a drop if I had miscarried. My symptoms although hardly any just sore nipples have subsided a little but still sensitive atm.

    Trying to stay positive but so anxious for my blood test results.

    Has this ever happened to anyone?

    I can share pictures, just ask.

    Im so sorry you are going through this, I don't have any experience with it, but it sounds positive that your cervix is still closed and its old blood. Fingers crossed all is well xxx
