Drama in the night. 👇 Update!

So everything was going so well until half an hour a go. I woke with a bad cramp bad enough to wake me and then I felt a rush of blood. Went to the toilet an a walnut sized clot came out. I have/had all the symptoms. High hcg which was doubling every 36 hours. I am not sure if this is the start of a miscarriage or can this happen for other reasons? Any comments greatfully received. Xx

So I had my scan and 2 embryos were found. One looking good. Faint heartbeat which the scanner thought had started today and measuring 3mm. The other sac had a foetal pole and measured 2.3mm but no heart beat yet... and more concerning is that it has an irregular shape. She is scanning me a week today to see it becomes viable. The reason for the bleed is that it is common with multiples and it's about fighting for room and apparently because with ivf they thicken your lining so much you are far more likely to have a bleed. Mixed emotions really. I am of course pleased but left feeling deflated which is stupid as I should feel really greatful.

Oh gosh that must have given u a fright!! I think from what friends have told me, this can be quite common & not necessarily a bad sign!! Hopefully your scan can put your mind at rest! Let us know xxx

Thank you. The lady at the scan clinic said it's not uncommon with ivf. Feel like my body has been saying something with mild light brown discharge. It's going to be a long morning waiting. Xxx

Really appreciate that. I opted to have 2 put in to improve my chances of 1. So feeling a bit better. You know more than anyone that it is such an emotional merry go round with very little merry. Xxx

I'm due my next transfer on the 22/6 and so want 2 put back in...but they don't put two in as standard until I'm 37...and I'm not 37 til November! Do you think it'll work if I stamp my feet and cry lol!! xx

I tend to do that a lot as pointed out by my husband this afternoon. However it is going to be a well informed argument why you should. I understand they have relaxed the 1 embryo rule in this country. I say be awkward and no one likes a crying face. Xxx
