Scan update

Sorry me again but just wanted to give a little update - managed to get in for a scan with a consultant (the bereavement midwife is amazing) which showed baby hasn’t moved at all. I think deep down I knew that but they just messed my head up so much. They said if nothing happens naturally this week, I can go in again at the weekend for another lot of tablets.

I can’t thank you all enough for your support, I would honestly be lost without it 💕

That's a wonderful news! :) I'm so happy for you. Most of us had the same opinion as you - that it can't go unnoticed just like that. I don't know it just sounds impractical in terms of science but a mother does know or feel things differently. You'll know when you're baby is safe and yet all the sign says otherwise and also the other way round. Stay well, take good care of yourself and do keep us updated. :D XOXO

Thank you, It sounds strange but its given me some comfort knowing I was right and baby is still in the same place. Least I can be prepared for what’s to come xx

Doesn't sound strange at all you knew you were right they put doubt in your head. The scan has just reassured your mind as your very vulnerable right now. Be good to yourself hun and hopefully things will happen soon 💗🤗😘

She’s a trained midwife but supports women through miscarriage and still born births. She’s only been in post a year but supports you with what to expect and what you want to happen after xx

Sounds like a really helpful person to have around in such situations. They don’t offer that where I am xx

Definitely she does what’s right for each family, she wasn’t around last year but has made such a difference. It’s a shame not every hospital has similar services, hopefully one day they will xx

No, not in any pain which I guess is a good thing for now I’m sure once the pain starts that will give me a good indication that things are happening.

Ok.**hugs** from me.

With our first IVF miscarriage, we were advised that natural should be our first option as it's meant to be easier for the body to reset itself..but different places have different opinions.

I was worried about when everything would start and where I might be, so I spoke with my acupuncture lady and there is a point that can 'speed' things up a bit.

I had slight/minimal spotting from the Tuesday, acupuncture on the Saturday and the main part of the miscarriage took place on the Monday.

Nothing seems easy, but glad you've got lots of support x

Thank you, I may speak to my Acupuncturist then and see if she is able to help. Last year when I had a MMC the tablets worked so I think I just presumed they would again this time x

Thank you all, still waiting at Home as nothing is happening 😔 back to the hospital tomorrow to discuss going back in at the weekend. Can’t understand if my body so desperately wanted to keep hold of baby why it couldn’t keep them alive 😢 xx

Morning E_05. Is your hospital appointment today? I really hope things start to move forward soon; I can't imagine how hard this must be for you. Thanks for your support last night even though you're going through such a hard time. Xx

Aw that’s okay, we’re all here to support each other. Hope your feeling a bit better this morning. Yeah it’s the afternoon and EPC have just told me that they won’t accept the scan I had on Monday so want to rescan me, they really don’t care about how this is affecting me 😩 xx

Reply

Just read this what on earth is going on you really need to keep a log of all this what's going on if you don't have the energy you've written it all down here and when you've got it in you. Complain to pals with the log and tell them this isn't good enough. I'm sending you hgs and lots of love hun. I'm so sorry your going through this much stress it's unbelievable 💗💗🤗😘

Reply

Thank you - your right when I’ve got the strength I definitely will put in a complaint. They said the bereavement midwife shouldn’t of organised a scan herself as they have ‘protocols in place’ she then told them that my emotional well-being is my important than any protocol and that’s why I was scanned but she hasn’t got any say over them refusing to take the scan from Monday. Thank goodness she know what she’s doing though xx

Reply

Bloody hell. I'm glad on your behalf she did the scan. You needed that for your own sanity.

These hospital lot are literally taking the mick. Seriously they have not treated you right at all. Bloody protocol I'd love to tell them what to do with protocol. You take care hun and hope today goes as smoothly as possible without them messing up even more. 💗🤗😘
