still spotting and pregnant

Hey ladies,

I hope that you are all doing good :)

So i'm still spotting and getting weird feeling on my left side like pulling feeling.

I have rang hospital and i have my scan on the 26th feb, i have tried to speak to them about the spotting! but she cant tell me if its a good thing or not!

I feel ok apart from period feeling and little pressure, i just feel so helpless at moment!

can anyone relate to this please xxxxxx

Hi Ker1. So sorry to hear this. However, the pulling feelings you are experiencing, could just be down to your womb starting to grow a little. The spotting is so common and often no reason is found. However, it can sometimes happen when the lining of the womb is starting to evolve into a placenta, which takes some weeks. Hopefully all is well and you will get your reassurance when you have your scan and meet your little "bean". Thinking of you. Diane

Hi Diane,

Thank you so much for reply.... its so terrifying its driving me mad, i'm keeping positive and trying to keep up beat but very hard. The spotting is only there when i wipe and i had no need for a pad, which is good. This is my first round of ivf so everything is new, it seems to be spotting more in the morning then it dies down!? I just hate going to toilet now dreading i might see something. : (

Hi. When yu lie down, blood collects, so when you get up it leaks out. It could even be coming from your cervix possibly being irritated by pessaries?? Diane

Hey,

My nurse said that, she has told me to use them the other way, i feel fine in myself i think if anything was wrong i would feel funny in myself? So i just have to keep strong and try to carry on like normal!

Thank you x

Hi Ker1. So it's not the pessaries. There are so many changes going on in your body during the first weeks of pregnancy, and if you read past posts on here, so many of you ladies get spotting, which naturally panics you. Just carry on as usual and have a rest when you can, and hopefully all will soon settle down. Diane

It may be the pessaries she said, she told me to use my bottom instead of the other way.

Like you said it could be lots of things, role on the 26th feb to see my liitle person fingers crossed :) xx

Thank you .... I have a scan and bloods on Monday to rule out few things. Do the pulling signs mean a good thing? Xxx

You say you are having a scan and bloods to rule out a few things, what are they ruling out? I'm unsure of the pulling signs hun I really don't know about them. I have just had an ectopic pregnancy, and I want to remind people that contacting health professionals isn't silly, and neither is looking after yourself. I have never had a healthy pregnancy, so your pulling signs could well just be your body adjusting and getting used to your little one growing. Don't let your nurse fob you off, are you in an early pregnancy unit? I would say take it easy and contact your nurse if you have any strange pains.

See this is it... I have had an ectopic too and worried it could be that again! Yeah I will be going too EPU on Monday. I’m hoping it’s a good sign 🤰

Oh I'm sorry to hear you have had an ectopic pregnancy before, it's heart breaking isn't it! I had my left tube removed and the surgeon said my right tube is damaged, so natural pregnancy is now highly unlikely, but enough about me.

Ok that's good that you're in with the EPU, mine were very thorough and caring which is great, are yours? All I can say is just be vigilant, keep an eye on symptoms and any new ones. Don't worry that it might be ectopic again, because it might not be! You seem like you are keeping an eye on things!

I know the wait is so annoying, try and rest though and take your mind off it, as worrying will upset you. Look after yourself, I'll be thinking of you xxx

Sorry to hear that Hun, it is a stressful time. But don’t be disheartened I only have one tube too! My baby is ivf baby so I have heard so many things, that this cramping can be normal.

My ivf client is good, they have booked me in for scan on 26th feb.

But I’m going to my EPU near me coz if everything goes well that’s where I will have my little bean.

Ixxx

IVF is our next step, I'm nervous about it to be honest, we had no idea that I had any problems with my fallopian tubes despite having investigations on them, so we were trying naturally as told to, then had this ectopic.

I'm glad the EPU have got you in, my EPU saved my life. If they hadn't have kept upping my appointments when I phoned, I would have been in a terrible state, I already had lots of internal bleeding :( Xxxx
