Also just out of interest, with the usual 12 weeks scan and bloods, do they give you the result there or do you have to wait? They're taking bloods at 10 weeks so I assume they'll have them when I go to the scan? My parents are visiting the week after so we want to tell them in person

Scan today. Measured 6w2d not 6w6d so I guess that's why we could see anything at last week scan. Saw HB flickering away.

I had mine but they're still dragging! I want to get to 12 weeks for my next because I'm still not convinced everything is fine - I'm such a fretter.

Happylittlecamper, that's great news!

Hi girls, dipping my toes in finally, was a bit shocked to find out I was pregnant just after Xmas- this is our #4. I'm 8+1, due 8th Sept. I'm 35 but have opted just to have combined screening as I did with the other 3, rather than NIPT. We've had 2 miscarriages as well but they were both before #2. So taking each day as it comes. I'm on zofran for the terrible morning sickness (get it every time), and am very tired, but ok apart from that. Not having a dating scan either, but it sure does feel like a long wait until 12 week scan!!

Welcome to the group Redfishbluefish! I'm #4 as well....and 40.

Feeling a bit anxious at the moment. Yesterday i had very very light discolouration when i wiped and this morning had some dark brown spotting. I'm 6w1d and this is the first spotting I've had. We BD`d about 2 days ago (but were being super careful) so maybe that's got something to do with it.....but can't help but feel anxious about it!!

I'm still spotting on and off, I have an appointment next week so I'll talk to the doctor about what it all means then. I freaked out last week when it first happened but now it's almost a week of spotting on and off and nothing but brown.

I am not going to stress over it, if this baby sticks(this is my third pregnancy, I have no children) then I'll be super excited, but given my risk factors, I'm trying to be realistic. Where I can sleep in or keep rested, I'm doing it.

I guess the testing may be helpful if the outcome would determine if you terminated the bubba or not.....no judgement here either! Xxxx

Phwoar what a crazy 24hrs!! After spotting yesterday morning, I started bleeding mid afternoon, not heaps but thought I'd head to A&E to get it checked out. The bleeding stopped but they kept me in overnight and did an ultrasound this morning. All is good...YAY...they couldn`t see the baby or heartbeat as too early...they measured 5w4d (we had 6w3d)...but said that the gestational/yolk sac was where it was meant to be.  We still have our proper dating scan in 2 weeks so hopefully get to see bubs and hear the heartbeat....such a relief!!

Edited to say got home from hospital and bled again!!  Drs actually referred me to have another scan in a week so until then it's just a waiting game :(

norestforthewicked - i wish for you to have a sticky bub and you are ok.

I've been spotting on and off since Monday last week, initially I was stressed but I'm now just getting on with it. I'm getting peculiar aching in my lower abdominal area. My appointment isn't until Wednesday with the doctor, so I guess I'll ask questions about the cramping and spotting then.

I was wondering ladies, for those of you who have had miscarriages - when did you decide to tell your parents? I think my parents were traumatised as my miscarriage was had overseas.

DH and I were takling about telling my parents after my first scan if there's a heartbeat - or perhaps after we do the NIPT tests.

I don't want to hurt them again after what we went through the last time.

I had a very early miscarriage (more of a failure to start really) at 5 weeks, which has made us wary this time around. We hadn't told anyone at that point, and we won't be telling anyone this time until after the 12 week scan.

I actually find it tough because I'd love to be able to speak to my friends about what's normal and what's not. Thank goodness for EB.

We won't be telling anyone till after 16 weeks minimum as that was when our baby passed away in November. Surprisingly I don't have the urge to tell anyone this time. Untelling people is really hard for everyone.

Fingers crossed for you norest4thewicked.


My mum and Drews mum know (as does my twin sister)
My history of recurring miscarriages, I need their help with the kids sometimes for scans etc it takes some pressure off hubby too as he's so busy at work.

I'm feeling much better about my decision then not to say anything.

I've told 3 friends to help with my support network. Husband works and I'm a student. If he's not around to help, then one of my three friends will.

Thanks ladies for your well wishes :)

We've told the parents, my twin sister and a close friend who also had a baby at 40.

Maybe we shouldn't have told anyone either until we had the all clear!

Its true the more people you tell your pregnant, the more you have to tell if something bad happens....but i guess you would want support from those you told too!
My first miscarriage happened at 11 weeks.....we told EVERYONE at christmas as it was the perfect opportunity and gave little xmas ornaments to family with baby due xxxxx.
I lost the baby new years eve and it was really really hard for me.....i didnt want anyone around me except my husband but had to tell everyone.
Luckily i got pregnant 3 months later with my now 1yo son, and i told everyone after the 12 week scan.

I have had a few very early mcs since then, but have not told family.
This pregnancy i have just told parents and a few close friends, mainly because i need help with my 1yo when i have appointments and also i look very pregnant already!!!!!!! Haha

We told people after we had the mc last year. It was hard but i felt better talking to my girlfriends but am very glad we didnt have to "untell" our parents. They would have been so hard to deal with at the time, they can be very self centred and i would have been trying to make sure they were ok instead of focusing on us. This time i actually plan on telling a few of my very close friends only so i can have someone (girls) to vent my anxieties to as i try not to stress dear hubs with my worries.
I had docs appointment and bloods today and all went well i think. They did find a trace of blood in urine but she said she was not concerned for that... Maybe she was just saying that so i dont stress. Has anyone else had that? Waiting on blood results to come back now. Ms is kicking in which is more like all day sickness especially after i eat anything and my nipps are sooo sore! Hope everyone else is going along well this week xx
