Do i need to see a doctor?

I've been having ongoing symptoms for nearly a week now. - dark spotting for 4 days (AF is a week late), sickness, exhausted, sweats, bloating, light dull cramps every so often - currently DPO11 - Negative result - im worried that I now cant keep water/food down, do i book an emergency doctors appointment today? as im worried it would do me more damage over the weekend if im not eating?

HELP!

I know there’s a lot of bugs going around in terms of the not keeping anything down but I think maybe for your own re assurance seeing a dr might help especially if you can’t keep sips of water down x

I would go see your GP and tell them you're late and about your symptoms. A pregnancy test may not have picked up your hormones yet if you are pregnant. The doctors might be able to help by doing a blood test which can be more accurate. If you feel more poorly over the weekend, I would go to A&E, they should be able to do a test, and tell you what to do next :) take care! Sounds like you've had a rough week! Xx

I’m afraid it’s bad news guys, I spoke to my doctor who said it was probably just too early to tell & to hang tight & call 111 over the weekend if things got worse, came home & did another test & there was a very very faint line, but never the less is was positive! I felt awful, cramping, sickness & kept feeling dizzy. So I went for a bath to try and de stress me, & went to bed (this was about 5pm)

Unfortunately I woke up heavily bleeding & in unbelievable pain around 9.30-10pm, & having been through a misscarriage before I knew exactly what my body was doing 💔💔 I guess this one just didn’t want to stick 👼🏻

As it was early days the pain was a lot less than before so at least that is a positive of the whole situation. I have an appointment with my specialist on Tuesday to discuss our options going forward - overall not a good weekend 😩😩😩

Aw I'm really sorry to hear that this was the outcome :( Look after yourself and try not to let it upset you too much- I know it's really hard and disappointing though. Yes going to see your specialist is good and positive, I hope the appointment goes well. Thinking of you xx

Thankyou my love. I’m trying to see it as positive as possible, and surprising myself with it so far, so let’s hope it stays that way. I’m due some hormone level results and was due to start clomid and follicle tracking this /next cycle so I’m just hoping for good news on that front, & to check out my progesterone, maybe it’s that which is lacking.

Thank you for your message. I hope you’re doing okay xxxxx

I was like that with my ectopic, I seemed ok for a couple of weeks after the initial shock and surgery, but had a couple of bad days. Try to stay as positive as you can, but don't put pressure on yourself to be ok, there's so many emotions that go with each unique situation and it's important to acknowledge them all.

Get back into it when you're ready, and look after yourself. Technology is so advanced nowadays there is a lot of help out there for us. Thinking of you xxxx
