A bit of a scare

So we are 6week 2days pregnant after our 5th cycle of ivf. We had a tiny bit of spotting Friday but nothing to worry about, woke up this morning with quite a lot of blood and was filling a pad quite quickly. Went up to urgent care and was taken straight to the EPAU she did a scan there's two sacs, 2 fetal poles could only see one heartbeat but that could be because it was too early, but there was a big dark mass on the scan which is behind the two sacs causing the bleeding so she said it could go either way now and I have to go back in 10 days. Anyone had this and gone on to have a positive ending?? Thanks xx

Hi Button-123. I'm not surprised you're scared! Hopefully, fingers crossed, this is just a bit of a threat and nothing definite. Make sure you rest well in the hope that they settle back down again. This happens so often as you must read on hear and we don't know why - then the pregnancy just settles back and continues normally. Thinking of you. Diane

Thanks Diane, they have told me to take the week off and relax. Just feel sick at the thought something might go wrong xx

Hi Button-123. That's all you can do for now I'm afraid. Try and keep out of this heat and make sure you get spoiled rotten! Diane

Good thing is you saw a heart beat in at least one. Could it be the twin passing? Sad to think that but...

Fingers crossed it was just too early too see both and things settle back down x

The bleed was on my lining but behind both sacs so they are unsure what it is or what causes it x

Thinking of you lovely - it must be so hard. I have everything crossed for you. Sending you big hugs & hope you're not melting in the heat. Take care & rest up xxxxxx

Aww button I have no advice for you either as I have never been that far but im hoping and praying with all my heart that everything will be OK. I do know my sister bled a lot in early pregnancy and she has a healthy baby boy now. But I can understand how distressing it must be especially after everything you have both been through. Bug hugs take care xxxxxxx

Thinking of you Button. It is all so hard...it would seem that the waiting game never ends! It is very positive that they have seen the sacs and the fetal poles so cling on to this, although I know you will be very unsettled for the next few days. Sending much love xxx

Me! Exactly the same. Just one healthy pregnancy left. But all is good... other sac is now empty. Did have a foetal pole to begin with. Just had my scan and my one remaining looks happy. I am sure it will be okay. Xxx

That's reassuring to hear, I was so relieved we had one heartbeat, obviously hoping the other catches up but not feeling very confident. How long did you bleed for?? X

Reply

Heavy bleed went on for an hour or so. Lots of clots so was obviously worried. Then went to brown discharge. They scanned me today again to check everything is okay and it is. Xxx

I was told 24 hours of bleeding is a worry but a short burst I could be cautiously optimistic. Thankfully touch wood I am okay at the moment. I know you will take it easy xxx

Oh gosh button it can never just be straight forward and worry free can it 😕 I don't have any experience but I really hope it's nothing. A good friend of mine had 2 pretty big bleeds and both times it was fine and he arrived perfectly healthy and now runs rings around my friend! Lots of luck xx

My daughter in law had this and bleeding all the way through her pregnancy and more patches appeared at each scan but baby was absolutely fine. They told her it could go either way but I like to stand by when they see a heartbeat there's less chance of a miscarriage although I know it don't always go that way.

Good luck xx

Aw button, what a stressful time for you. I hope that it all settles down for you. Get those feet up and rest, rest, rest! Plenty of women on here have early bleeds on go onto to have healthy babies. Brilliant news you've seen a heartbeat on one of your little treasures, and this early. Hoping the second one starts to beat in the next few days. Thinking of you xx

I haven't personally experienced this but a friend had it on both her pregnancies- she bled on and off right through her pregnancy (one a boy, other a girl) and both are beautiful and healthy. Wishing you a happy ending 🤞🏼❤️

Hi button, it sounds pretty scary but my friend had the same thing from 4 weeks and bled until about 12 weeks, she's now 16 weeks. It sounds very positive that there are 2 poles and one heartbeat for now 🌈

Anyway the scan showed both babies all good and heartbeats but they could see blood in my uterus and no idea why x I honestky thought it was all over x got a scan minday at ivf clinic thank god ! They said to rest but it hadn't seem to effect babies but obviously it's so hard not to panic x I've stopped bleeding now ... I wonder if bleeding worse as I'm on clexane and aspirin !

We had a private scan on Thursday they could see 2 heartbeats. One was spot on size, dates etc and really strong. One was slow and small for my dates so think we are looking at just one. Hopefully that one will be ok xx
