I have had 2 miscarriages (2009 and 2012) and both were different,one was a missed miscarriage without any symptoms which resulted in an ERPC as it had been 5 weeks without any bleeding. The other was spontaneous at around 10 weeks and was very painful and ended up with hospital admission due to the sudden blood loss. Started with spotting and then turned suddenly heavy, passing huge clots and eventually passing out in A&E.
I found out I am pregnant last week and my dates put me at around 5 weeks. Yesterday I felt wetness on my legs and went to the bathroom to find a sudden gush of red blood, didnt feel it happen and had no accompanying pain. I went straight to the EPU and had a scan which confirmed my dates, small gestational sac and small yolk sac present but obviously no embryo as so early. By this point I had some mild cramping feelings, started as a tugging sensation then became more like a period ache. They tested my blood for HCG levels which seemed ok, and came back with a 78% chance of having a viable pregnancy but obviously they can't say whether the bleed signifies the start of a miscarriage, they couldnt say where the bleed was coming from and couldn't identify any pockets of blood in my uterus.
I've not had any bleeding since that one gush yesterday but have had ongoing dull pain in my lower abdomen. My pregnancy symptoms are mild but I don't really know any different, I had a baby in 2011 but cant remember how it felt being in the first trimester.
I suffer badly from anxiety and have had treatment for it but this has thrown a spanner in the works as I just can't face going through it again. I have a rescan booked in 2 weeks if nothing happens before but I just can't sit here waiting. Has anyone been in this situation and has anyone got experience of monitoring HCG levels to see if they are rising? I am tempted to ask for further blood tests but I know this isn't common practice so I am sure that they will decline.
Similarly, anyone got any positive stories about sudden gush of blood and cramping that doesn't spell the end??? If not then maybe just stay silent
