Hi, I found out on 6th June that i was pregnant, i was so excited! I went to my docs who told me i was 7weeks and was due on 22nd Jan, going by my Last menstral period. One sunday afternoon exactly a week after i found out i was pregnant i had light bleeding, as a concerned first time mum i rushed to A and E, after waiting 3 hours i got examined by a doctor, she felt my tummy and told me to do a water sample to confirm i was pregnant (funnerly enough i was!!) she told me i had to come back on Tuesday to have a scan to make sure babys ok.
I was really excited in waiting for Tuesday to come, thinking i was going to bring a scan picture home for all my friends and family to look at.
Tuesday came around and while having my scan the lady looked really puzzled, she said the sack was there but there was no sign of a baby, she advised me this could be one of two things:
1. a silent misscarrige
2. my pregnancy being earlyier than i thought
so they decided to do a Hormone blood test. they took blood and in 48 hours took another set of blood , my first reading came back at 4000 by second reading came back at 6790 which ment the pregnany was still on going so i was really happy at that. they just needed to rule out that it could be a ectopic pregnany.
they booked me in for a scan exactly a week later on the 23rd of June. I was hoping again to see a baby or at least here a heart beat.
this time my sack had grown and doubled in size....but still no baby.
i had a chat with the nurse and she ruled out ectopic pregnany as i have no syptoms. eg no pain, heavy bleeding.
She advised me its something called blighted ovaum. They want me to go for a rescan on 30th June (dont ask why) =(
They are hoping the sack will break and disperse itself, if not they will have to do something simular to a dnc.
I dont really have any questions, i just wanted to hear from people that have either experianced this or know someone that has, aparently its called a silent misscarrige.
I am really gutted as i wanted to be a mum so bad.
Has anyone experianced this??
Any views or opinions would be a great help. Thank you xx
