Miscarriage

Hello. At 7 weeks pregnant I started bleeding just a little and I got scared and went to the A&E, there I was told that I have a minor infection and the doctor didn't gave any medication, he said that probably will go away by itself and that he will pass the information to Early Pregnancy to make an appointment for a scan. The next day I started bleeding a bit more and went again to A&E where I was told the same thing by a different doctor but this time he gave me medication. That day I got a call from Early Pregnancy and went for a scan, where the doctor said he cant see a heartbeat and that is a miscarriage. I was in shock and started to cry. He told me the three options and in that moment I said I want the surgery but the doctor said, go home, because I was in shock, think about it and when I decide what I want to do, just give them a call. I decided by myself to wait 7 days so I can finish the treatment for the infection and if by then nothing happens naturally I am thinking taking the pill that the doctor will give me so I can get cleaned. My friend, who is pregnant in 14 weeks said that I should go for a private scan maybe there they will find a heartbeat. I don't think they will, because I am still bleeding, I think my body tries to clean itself slowly, I don't know, this is my first pregnancy and I am so scared. Anyone had the same experience?

Hi, I'm so sorry you're going through this. I found out at 12 weeks there was no heartbeat and it's the most heartbreaking thing to hear. I had medical managed miscarriage (took tablets) at the hospital as the miscarriage didn't want to happen naturally. Any questions feel free to ask. You need support at a time like this. Hugs xx

Hi I m so sorry to know what you are going through. I have been to this horrific journey before so I can feel every bit of it. I fell pregnant naturally 2 years ago. I started bleeding at the same time as you. Called the GP and got scanned. On first scan they found the heart beat but bleeding never stopped. They didn't have me any medicine to support the pregnancy and asked me to go back home. After a day or two bleeding increased and they scanned it again, heartbeat was not found. They gave me the same 3 options as you, it was Friday and asked me to come back on Monday with decision. But on the weekend I miscarried naturally and Monday scanned showed that I passed everything. There is no right or wrong option. D&C just gives you peace of mind that no tissue is left behind.

Hey

I'm really sorry. I've had 2 miscarriages in 6 months and they are devastating. But I've also read cases where they wait a week or 2 and rescan and see the heartbeat.

I would wait the week and rescan to be 100% sure

I'm here if you need to talk.

I understand what you're feeling xx

I'm so so sorry. I had a miscarriage three months ago. I decided on natural and for me I started spotting 5 days after stopping the fertility drugs and the full miscarriage came a few hours later - all at once for about a 6 hour duration. But miscarriage is different for everyone.

I have friends who have gone with the medicated option and from what I understand natural is better if you can wait it out.

Just take care of yourself. Sending you lots of love xx
