Think im out! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ chemical pregnancy?!

Hey all

So as the title says I think I'm out.

I started spotting yesterday pink/brown blood! Decided before bed to test just to see what it said (6dp5dt) and I got a faint positive. Really faint to the point you had to squint your eyes to see it. I woke at half 4 this morning and decided to test again, another faint positive ( 7dp5dt) but this time you didn't have to squint. These tests were first response.

The spotting has continued into this morning when I wipe. Also had some brown/pink on the applicator of my pessarie.

So I bought a clear blue digital and used it about 10am so was with my 3rd pee urine and this has come up not pregnant.

I'm not thinking I've possibly had or am having a chemical pregnancy?

I'm having AF type cramps along with sick ache both of which are signs my period is coming.

Absolutely gutted but I can't have any control over this.

And to top it all of I've just had a text to say my sister has had some kind of breakdown and has been taken into hospital.

I don't know how much more stress I can take ๐Ÿ˜ฅ xxx

Hey Amanda86

Spotting can be normal, I had spotting and got a bfp last year. Stay calm and re test on your official test day on Monday. The drugs can still be in your body.

Sounds like you have a lot on but I wouldn't presume your out yet Hun.

Sending big hugs xxxx

Thanks so much missy. Just worried with having faint positive then not pregnant? Also my cramps have been quite sore. Had to take some paracetamol xxx

Oh no. Could it be you've just tested too early? Also the clearblue digital tests say to use first urine of the day for accurate result.xx

Thanks Katya,

Possibly. I have another test which I will keep and use Monday morning as that's my blood test day. I'm hoping it's just spotting but I really feel it's not ๐Ÿ˜ฅ xxx

Thank you. I really hope it's just spotting but I just feel like it's definitely my period. I really hope I'm wrong though xxx

Hi Amanda86, I know you are worried. I had a brownish discharge with cramps for two weeks I thought i would miscarry at any time. I don't know how I survived to 12 Weeks.(I guess one day at the time). It won't stop there until you have your child. My advice take each day as it comes.

Ps, i hate clearblue digital tests. I don't want to give false hope but I had two negative when I was pregnant. They are best when you are a week late.x

Thank you. I'm hoping it's just spotting however I thought it was maybe a bit late to be spotting and with the cramps and backache I thought it doesn't seem a good sign.

Really hope I'm wrong. Keeping everything crossed.

It would mean my period was about 4 or 5 days early though which is very unusual for me xxx

Just wait and see you never know just keep as positive as you can and test on your day xx

Yes please don't think it's over just yet and rest on Monday. I had awful cramps and really felt like my period was going to start for a good few weeks. It's just an awful time waiting and wondering. Sending hugs and support your way xxx

Thank you. That's gives me some reassurance as the spotting I didn't think was too bad it was more having the pain with it I thought this can't be good.

Do you think I'm best to purchase some first response again then for test day? Xxx

Really that's interesting so your levels obviously have to be quite high for them to work. That's good to know as they are so expensive x

Defo. I hate digitals with a passion. I spent. A BOMB on them waiting to progress to 3+ and after 9 weeks I just gave up. I would rather scrutinise 2 lines anytime than rely on them! Can't tell you to wait for OTD because if your self control is anything like mine you won't be able to lol ๐Ÿ˜

If you need to feed the urge then get some first responses, I know how stressful the beginning is, it's torture especially when your seeing blood ๐Ÿ˜• We have had scares through a lot of this pregnancy and we're 31 weeks today.

Sorry to hear about the stress your under.

Easier said than done but try and put yourself first โค๏ธ

Good luck sweetheart

I thought that although the trigger shot was done 14 days ago and I read it's out your system by 12 days.

It's very horrible although the bleeding is very similar to my last miscarriage so I've not much hope ๐Ÿ˜ฅ xxx

Oh Amanda I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling. It is such a stressful hard time. I was the same as you last time and I just knew it hadn't worked. But then I have heard such miracle stories so don't give up yet until you know for sure.

All the worry in the world will not change the outcome x

Thank you. Unfortunately the bleeding has become heavier and is red in colour.

It's not my time.

I think we want to take a good few months out before trying again. It's definitely been too stressful for us emotionally.

At the moment my partner doesn't feel like he ever want to go through it again although I've told him in a few months he will hopefully feel stronger and ready again.

It's such a hard thing to go through ๐Ÿ˜ฅ xxx

Reply

Amanda I'm so so sorry to read this. I can't blame you or your partner for feeling like this. The thoughts of goin through all of this again makes me so upset too. Take your break from this and rest yourself and when you are ready perhaps both of you will find the strength to give it another go. Don't think anyone fully understand unless they walk in our shoes X

Hi Amanda. So sorry to hear this news it truly is heartbreaking. I had another bfn this week myself. I thought I was pregnant naturally was so convinced this time but I wasn't. When my period came 5 days late I was gutted especially when it happened at 4am in the morning and I had to get up for work at 7am the next day. I definitely believe that every bfn is that bad harder. Take care of yourself xx

Oh, dear! What pain you're feeling, I'm so sorry. I know how hard this path is. We had the same thing after our 1st failed cycle. Such a great mixture of feelings! And I cannot say we could just keep positive in the position. It's better to say we did everything we could to get closer to our aim the following time. We did what we were to do, less positive but with huge hope.

Hun, I wish you the strength and stable outlook to move further. Thinking of you X
