Re: Tell Me About Your Early Miscarriage (~7 Weeks)

Essentially, each miscarriage was different, just as every pregnancy was different.

All that being said, bleeding doesn't always mean miscarriage. Bleeding happens for a number of reasons in early pregnancy. I would keep your ultrasound appointment. In the meantime, your doc could do quantitative HcG blood tests to see if your numbers are rising adequately.

Big hugs mama. I truly hope your worry is all for naught.

Thank you so much for the kind words. You're right - they're all different - I just wish I knew what to expect. The bleeding has really tapered off today, and I've even been running around doing dishes, laundry, etc. I know there is the chance it is a subchorionic bleed, I have a tendency to have those (I lost my 2nd pregnancy @ 11 weeks due to a HUGE SCH, I have a clotting disorder) and I would probably be more hopeful that's what it was if my pregnancy symptoms weren't tapering off. Nausea, sore bb's, and exhaustion all seem to be decreasing. I will definitely keep my u/s appt Tuesday, though - I want to know either way what is happening.

Could have been the mental factor, that I was losing babies I had just seen on u/s a few days prior, but I had back labor, dilated, and finally passed the sac while sitting on the potty. Once that was passed, it was over for lack of a better word. My bleeding was never heavy or clotty, just a very light flow, mucusy and then dwindled down over the next few days. Sorry if this has been TMI. I'm sorry Mama, it's a horrible thing to go through. I have lost 10 pg's, and at least 11 babies in between my 3 living babes and my current pg. I am almost 27wks and still scared sh*tless of losing him. Hugs Mama!
I'm so sorry for all your losses also It sucks because even when I get a BFP, I am happy for all of about 30 seconds, then I realize that that is only about 1% of my battle, and immediately the fear comes in than any day my baby will be taken from me.

I keep reading about bad m/cs like you describe, but I am hoping that at 7 weeks it won't be quite as bad. There might not even be a baby KWIM? If it was a blighted ovum or something. Who knows. Ugh. Maybe I will see if my dr will call me in a few strong pain pills, just in case. I just hate the waiting. Bleeding has really slowed down today - I am hoping to not need a D&C again. Why do some of us have it so much harder than others? It's so unfair.
