    A few of you guys might have seen my previous thread... I've been having tiny strings of blood in my mucus for about 10 days. No cramps, very strong morning sickness, sore boobs, sore back, exhausted... This morning I woke up, feeling not pregnant. No morning sickness, no sore boobs, barely any CM... I went to the hospital. On the US they couldn't see anything (the guy says he was just a regular doctor, no a specialist with that machine though.) He examined me, said my cervix was closed, but that my baby measured 6 weeks!

    I'm positive my dates are right, since I've been taking pregnancy tests since October 12th and they all came back positive...

    I'm due back tomorrow, to do a transvaginal US... But I have no hope... They also took some blood to measure the hormone level...

    I guess I'm the 1/5 that miscarries :(

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well my Boo Bean is gone :(

    He stopped growing at 7 weeks. No heartbeat. Chose to try and miscarry naturally, I have until monday, otherwise they'll have to do a D&C. I had so many things shoved up there in the last 2 days, I really don't want one! :(

    Any tips on how to start a miscarriage naturally?

    Thanks ladies for all your support and advice. I hope all your pregnancies go well. You probably won't see me for a while, I'm not sure we're gonna try again any time soon.

    I got a positive test a few days after you and Im only 7 weeks. so its possible you could be 6 weeks. Ive seen it alot on here women know when they OV but the U/S says they aresnt as far. i think maybe the baby grows slower or something. A little but of blood isnt a bad thing. Your not bleeding heavily and ur cervix is closed so \Im sure everyhting will be ok!! GL hun!

    I wonder if this will help you, it's not my story, but it happened to a friend of mine recently.
    She was ttc for approx 3 years, without success, until she found out she was pregnant around 3 weeks ago. She went for an early scan about 1.5 weeks ago (when she was about 6.5 weeks pregnant she thought) and was diagnosed with a blighted ovum - no baby, just the sac. Another scan a week later (at 7.5 weeks) showed the same thing. She went to the hospital on Wednesday morning to get the pills to medically manage things, and asked for an internal scan to make sure. Lo and behold, a little baby measuring 6w2d with a flickering heartbeat was seen. Needless to say, they are over the moon.

    Sometimes, you just need to have a little bit of faith, what's meant for you won't go by you they say. Fingers crossed everything is ok with your lil bean, stay strong :hugs:
