Went to A&E last night and it's not good.

    Well I'd been getting cramp like pains all day yesterday. Not painful enough to call it a period type pain. Just like a dull ache.
    Then I went to the toilet and found a brown discharge. :cry:
    I was so scared and I know this is meant to be normal but something just didn't feel right?
    So I got to hospital and after waiting three hours (and the blood getting heavy but again, not enough to call it a period and it was starting to get dark red) they first of all took some blood tests, then checked my cervix which was closed. He then took swabs and done an internal examination using his fingers. Then I got the dildocam scan where they found the sac but no baby or heartbeat :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:. They said it's a threatened miscarriage and the reason they can't see anything may be because I'm not as far on as I think I am (My cycle lengths were pretty varied)
    So, I've got to go back on Monday 20th for another scan and more blood. This will be where I find out if I have a baby or not. :cry:

    UPDATE - 12/04/2009 10AM

    Yesterday I received my dating scan appointment for Friday 17th April. I think we'll go to that one and if all is well then we'll cancel the Monday 20th appointment.
    I'm still bleeding brown blood with tiny tiny little brown dots (clots?) and it's mainly when I wipe. I've still got a dull ache in my stomach too.
    I'm not sure if I put this is my original post but the doctor at the hospital tested my urine and said there was a slight water infection? He didn't mentioned anything else about it and I forgot to ask as I was too upset to talk after the scan.
    I'm trying to keep up a positive outlook but it's so hard. We have family up who are staying at his Mam's house and I can't bring myself to face them, I can't talk about it without crying and we haven't told anybody about what happened on Friday.
    Sorry, I'm rambling now but I just needed to get this off my chest.

    UPDATE - 12/09/2009 (23:35)
    Well after passing huge brown clots and more brown blood I've been back to A&E (they said if there was anymore bleeding or clots then I had to go back) Sorry if this is too much information but the clots were really thick and brown. The biggest was maybe the size of a 50p coin. I was so scared. I cried there and then. I thought this was the end.
    We searched online quickly and it all pointed towards miscarriage.
    He checked my cervix again and it's still closed. Therefore still classed as a "threatened miscarriage" took more blood and sent me on my way. He said not to worry too much as the blood/clots are brown and I don't have major cramping. I kinda felt like I wasted his time a bit but I can't fault the service that the hospital have provided us. We were in and out within an hour or so. Got to go to my dating scan on 17th to hopefully find a baby.

    UPDATE - 14/04/2009
    Well there is still brown blood and clotting :( I wish Friday would hurry up.

    I told a couple of people at work today because I'd rather they knew what was going on incase I cried (I managed to hold it together today though) but their reaction was "well you have plenty of chances to get pregnant again" :( Am I clutching at straws for hoping I see something on Friday? I know they mean well and only trying to help but they were talking like I've already lost my baby :(

    Thank you ladies. I'm so scared. We got so excited and literally told everyone. I don't know if I should say anything now or wait until the second scan a week on Monday.

    I thought I was 8 weeks going off my last period but they've been long irregular cycles so it could be anything really. I'm praying that I've just messed my dates up :cry:

    I can't imagine how scared and worried you must be feeling. I too hope that it is just a matter of you getting the dates mixed up and that you see a beautiful heartbeat on the 20th :hugs:
