7 wk scan - no viable pregnancy


Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all keeping well. I had my 7 week scan this morning but unfortunately there was an empty sac. I’m absolutely heartbroken and don’t really know how to process my emotions. I have to stop the pessaries and they are hoping I’ll bleed within a week. If not, I have to take tablets to help it pass.

I’m so devastated and with everything going on just feel that it will never happen for us. Xx

Hey, we we didn't get to the scan but after we had our negative blood tests it took around a week and then I started to bleed, didn't have cramps.

I know how heartbreaking this feels, like you've finally got there to have it ripped away. We reasoned that baby wouldn't have been fit and healthy and this helped us a little. We cried for a day then focused on our next shot... and we currently have around 5 weeks to go.

So just because it didn't work out, it doesn't mean that it won't. You know that you can get pregnant which many don't so take a positive from that ❤️ Today will seem so distant in the near

future. Im sending you a big cuddle and the hope that you have some comfort food in to make you feel a little better 🙂

I hope the universe is much kinder to you next time xxxx


I’m so so so sorry Hun, I’ve just had a missed miscarriage so I know how you feel 💔just know you’re not alone, I’m here to support you. Thinking of you and sending lots of love 💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋we can heal now and once the coronavirus emergency has ceased we can get back on the saddle and continue our fight ❤️We will have our babies one day! 💗💗💗💗💗

Im so sorry to hear your news!! Sending love and hugs.xx

So sorry to hear this 😢 I suffered a mmc last week and I’m really struggling at the moment but I know in time I will heal and so will you ❤️ take time to grieve and look after yourself sending you lots of love during this hard time ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ xxx

So sorry hun x big big hugs to you and lots of love. We went through this recently too so if you have any questions or want to chat feel free to message x lots of love x x

Thanks everyone, I just keep crying and then feeling numb. I am so sorry to hear that a lot of you have been through a similar thing, sending love back. I just want the bleed now so my body can recover. I don’t know how long it’ll be before we can go through it again, but it’s so difficult to stay positive and think that it’ll work. I have so many questions about why, what went wrong, if I did anything wrong 😥 I’m 34 this year and worrying it’ll never happen xx

I can assure you that YOU HAVENT DONE ANYTHING WRONG. I don’t know why this happened to us, it’s terribly unfair 💔but I’m sure it’s not our fault. Nature deemed these pregnancies as not viable. Impossible for us to understand or accept, we can only heal and move forward. I’m thinking of you 💋💋💋💋💋💋

So so sorry xx. Sending you loads of love and hugs and also wishing the courage and strength to get through this

So sorry for your loss 😢 ❤️ XxxxxxX

Oh god, sorry to hear this Catlady. This is devastating. Really sorry for your loss. Sending big hugs and love. xxxx

Oh sweet 😔 this is everyones worst nightmare. I’m so so so sorry you’re having to go through this. I pray this is as smooth for you as possible 💜 xx

So so sorry 😢 it’s a truly heartbreaking experience 💔I’ve been through a mmc and got pregnant with more treatment within a year- many do so please don’t lose hope. Try to be kind to yourself and just focus on getting through this bit for now. Sending you lots of love and strength 💕💕 xx

Thanks so much and I’m pleased it worked out for you too. Yes, it’s heartbreaking and made harder with the coronavirus situation at the moment but I’m going to try and focus on getting my mental and physical health back where it needs to be before we try again xx

I'm so sorry for you, Catlady. I can't imagine your pain right now. I think to experience infertility and loss is just the most heartbreaking and cruel thing. There are no words to express how much I wish comfort and peace for you right now. Lots of hugs xx

So so sorry you are going through this lovely. It is just devastating 💔 (we have experienced MMC too). Sending you huge hugs at this really shitty time xxx

So so sorry for this pain. It’s the worst. All here for you xxx

I'm so sorry lovely...

I'm in exactly the same position. Wk 8+5, and since week 6 we knew its an empty sack.

The thought that helps me is that there never was a heart, or an embryo. It is just an empty sack. It is still a loss, but it helps me to think there was nobody there, just my stupid body playing a trick in me.

I am still waiting for the bleeding. They gave us 2 weeks before they think about medical management.

The current situation, I was assured, will have no impact on further pregnancies. So we will be trying again soon.

All the best ❤️❤️
