I didn't really know where to post this but maybe you can help...
I found out on Sunday I was 4 weeks + 1 pregnant. Sunday night I had lightly blood-stained discharge. I went to the doc's Monday morning and was admitted to hospital for observation (they have no facilities at my doc's).
The bleeding has since gotten worse, it went to mild bleeding on Sunday afternoon/evening and I would say today it is the same as a light period.
I have has a few small (0.5cm) clots as well but the blood has been bright red and not brown. I have had mild period-like 'pain' (more like discomfort) and a few very small cramps (although I'm not sure if that\s my uterus or my guts which have been playing up recently).
The doctor did an ultrasound scan with the probe and palpated me. There was no sign of the pregnancy and last nigh she diagnosed me with a 'threatened miscarriage'. She took bloods and did a lot of tests, oddly none of them testing my HCG levels.
Since last night (it is now nearly 6pm over here) the bleeding has increased to what I would call 'moderate'. I saw another doctor at rounds this morning who took more blood for an HCG test (she said it was odd they didn't test yesterday). I am waiting for results.
I have stopped 'feeling' pregnant. I no longer feel nauseous although am still very tired.
I have been reading till my eyes bleed about bleeding during early pregnancy (I am now 4+3) and lots of people have gone on to have normal pregnancies and babies. But it's the 'feeling'. I know it's silly but I jsut know I've lost the baby.
Has anyone got any advice for me? I have another 2 or 3 hours left to wait until these HCG results come back and I just don't really know *why* this is happening.
ANY advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
