This probably isn't the most sensitive of places to post this but it seems the most appropriate place I can find. :-[

On monday we had a scan at the EPU after lots of bleeding and spotting (red and brown) with cramping.
The scan showed a small sac of irregular shape (as if collapsing) containing only a yolk sac - no fetus. The news was not looking good.

Before the scan I had bled every day from my BFP two weeks before. I had also experienced occaisional cramping.

Since the scan I've had no bleeding, only occaisional lower back ache (but suspect this is from my chair at work!) and have started feeling 'wobbly' occaisionally. I do occaisionally feel sick but this is normally just before bursting into tears at the unknown wait. :'(

Has anyone else experienced anything similar after a hideous early scan?

I'm trying very hard not psyche myself up for another disapointment by 'hoping against all hope' that the scan was wrong, but the not knowing is driving me pots.  :'(

Sorry to hear this honey ... i too have had a BFP and have been constantly bleedin red blood without clots or tissue for the last 3 days ... had some bloods done yesterday and they came back at 27 next lot fri but now all i can do is  ^pray^ they double by fridays bloods.

Its understandable thta you are feeling 'wobbley' - having gone trough so much to get here, the 2ww followed by another 2ww wholst bleeding waiting for your scan.... can you not have some bloods done to monitor your BHCG levels, then at least you will know one way of another.

Ive got everything crossed for you xxxx

Can you not get seen any earlier, could you got to EPAU and explain the trauma this putting you through?  A couple of days really does make a difference in the scan world.

My experience was different, I had bleeding, I went for a scan, just a sac, nothing else at all (supposed to be 6w), I went back two weeks later (i'd been booked for a d&c but told they'd scan me first), I should've been 7+5 I think but everything was fine, a perfect sac, with all its bits and peices including a heartbeat....the fertility clinic were absolutely adamant that I would miscarry, they gave me NO hope at all that things could correct themselves (I complained about this aspect of care later on).

I don't want to give you false hope, stranger things have happened.  I  ^pray^ you get a miracle on Wednesday (or before if you can get seen).

Thinking of you

Oh Debs, how awful for you but it isn't over til it's over, and that ain't just yet. With it being a natural miracle it could be late implantation so the scan may well have just been too early, but either way they do seem to like to tell you worst case scenario. I can't imagine what it's like to be in limbo like this but I shall certainly be ^pray^ ^pray^ that it's good news for you next week as there's always hope.

In some ways I wish they could have just 'got the sucking-removal machine' out there and then. None of this waiting and nail biting stuff.  I'm definately a black and white person. Not good at this 'well maybe sortof kinda' stuff.

I want a window installed so I can see what is going on in my womb :(

Debs I am so sorry this is happening. Do you have a private scan clinic near you? We do and I have used them before it's @£50 - 75 for the scan but well worth it if it makes you feel better and takes away the anxiousness.

big hugs x x

To be honest I think the longer I can put off having the scan the more chance of the result being correct. I chatted to the EPU nurse and she basically said the same. If I went for a scan today it might still be inconclusive. I know I should be able to wait and find out - I'm just not very good at it :(

Well we've just had to go to the pub (for lunch!)

The scan showed a sac, a yolk sac and a small embryo WITH A HEARTBEAT!!!!
Basically all is as it should be but my dates have been put back a week. Not overly suprising as I'm a bit erratic with ovulation but needless to say we are cautiously overjoyed! :)

Thanks to all for your support ^hugme^
