Hi everyone, I am new to the forums here, from Sydney Australia...Just wanting to know if anyone else has experienced this and had a positive result ending in a healthy happy bouncing baby?
Husband and I have been ttc for approximately 12 months now. Chemical pregnancy in October 2012, but wouldn’t have even known except I was a serial tester. This time my short story goes like this: LDMP was 31.12.2012. Regular 28 day cycle. Expected O day was 14.01.2013. AF due 27.01.2013. Got very light spotting day before expected AF... only when wiping, then nothing. Took hpt but negative. Next day, mild cramps, then heavier cramps, then heavy bleeding. Bright red accompanied by heavy cramping. Assumed not pregnant. Continued to bleed and cramp Monday and Monday night had cold sweats and felt “off”. Did another hpt on Tuesday morning and saw a faint faint faint line, so faint my husband swore he couldn’t see it. Tuesday afternoon felt my breasts were a bit tender, and felt more “off”, and so I did another hpt. This time it was still faint but a work colleague agreed it looked like a faint positive. I did a digital one at the same time and it was a clear not pregnant. With all the heavy bleeding and cramping which was still continuing, I decided to visit the ER to find out once and for all if it was another chemical. So Tuesday afternoon, my hcg levels were 13. Doctor told me it was too low for my dates and I was having a miscarriage and to go home and let it happen naturally. So home I went still bleeding heavily (one pad every 2-3 hours), and told hubby I needed to let it pass naturally.
I have continued bleeding heavily (one pad every 4 hours), cramps are less intense but today is Thursday and my breasts definitely feel fuller, still feel “off” and so I decided to another hpt. The line came up instantly almost as dark as the control line! The digit one says pregnant 1-2 weeks. Im so confused! I feel pregnant but how can something survive after so much bleeding?
I am having more bloods done tomorrow under the care of my private doctor. But my question is, has anyone else ever experienced this and gone on to have a healthy full term baby? I can only find horror stories so far and would love to hear from those with a positive outcome. I’m feeling worried, anxious, excited and scared all at the same time....
Could it be that I ovulated late and so my hormone levels weren’t strong enough to tell my AF to stop? Its not implantation bleeding, it is way too heavy and been going on for 3.5 days now.! No sign of letting up but pregnancy symptoms getting stronger..
Thanks everyone. I will be sure to update the post as it happens...
