Miscarriage & Still Birth Message Board


Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index


I am new to this board and need help desperately.
My cycles are normally 28-30 days. Last month I was 6 days late (34 days) but my period came and was fairly normal. I noticed signs of ovulation early though (around day 10) and as we were planning to start trying for our second child we had sex then and again the next night.
Around day 25 I started feeling nauseous and my breasts were tender. On day 30 I took a hpt and it was neg. I was a bit upset and confused but thought oh well. At day 39 when my period had still not come and the symptoms were pretty strong (even some weight gain and slight breast enlargement) I tested again. There was a faint line, almost not there initially but after 2 minutes definately a light line. That day the symptoms were really strong but then I had a stomache ache too...high up and painful. I was very nauseous that day too.
The next morning I went to work and booked a Dr's appt for the next week and then about 90 min. later noticed spotting. I called the office back and the nurse said it was normal to spot but to take it easy.
I went home and at first it was just spotting but then the cramping started, mildly. By the next morning I was passing clots that were very stringy, had some pinkish grey matter in them but had very little blood on a pad. It is now 4 days since the bleeding started. There is still many clots, some big, some little, some just normal looking, some that are pinkish grey. I am still nauseated but my breasts are only slightly tender now.
I am second guessing myself all the time now...was I really pregnant? Was it just a really late period? Could I still be pregnant?
With my son I tested positive at 34 days and had some cramping but never any bleeding. Delivery was a nightmare (37 hours of induced labour with both gel and the drip with awful contractions the entire time) and now I wonder if there was damage done then?
Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks. :confused:
I believe you are pregnant and you may or may not be miscarrying. I highly recommend that you go to the doctor to have HCGs done. They can tell you whether or not your numbers are going up or down. They'll draw blood and then two days later draw blood again. If the number is doubling then your pregnancy is continuing if they go down your pregnancy is ending and you may need a D&C (they typically give you the option).

I'd imagine this is anxious time for you not knowing! The waiting is so difficult.

My miscarriages (I've had 5) have always started with bleeding and clots. Then the cramping started mildly and became worse and worse until I passed some large clots (although two of my very very early miscarriages I had very few clots and very little tissue) and grayish placental tissue. After that the cramping stopped and the bleeding continued for several days (and up to a few weeks for my later ones).

There is still hope! Let us know.

Love and Prayers, Kelly
I'm so sorry! I'm really surprised that they didn't do a blood draw for HCGs.

I wanted to share that I have had two early miscarriages where I became pregnant before I had another period. Both times everything went extremely well. However, my doctor recommends waiting one full cycle before trying (I wasn't "trying" when I became pregnant; I wasn't expecting to ovulate so soon and became pregnant).

I hope it goes well for you!

Love and Prayers, Kelly
