Talking about her scare in her blog, she wrote: "Now I'm getting to the end of my pregnancy I'm experiencing all different types of pains and the stress definitely hasn't helped.
"I was particularly worried about his movement last week as he's not been as active as usual.
and got lucky, we found out 12 days BEFORE my 36th birthday. I can’t WAIT to tell you all about how we found out, and how we dealt with the weeks that followed (THE HOLIDAYS!! Being pregnant has been the WEIRDEST thing I have ever experienced. I don’t think about any of the things I thought I would. I keep looking down there and saying “hello bud, are you still in there??
Hi all, I've just been through a missed MC & went in for a d&c on Monday. I was a week away from my 12 week scan when I started to have a little bleeding for a few days. I got such a shock, asked Doc if she could check for a heartbeat & she said there was nothing to check. It was so hard sitting in the waiting room with all the different sized bumps, just knowing that we were waiting to get confirmation of what we already knew :( The midwife was so nice.
Went to GP who sent me to Emergency Room for a scan. She gave me internal scan, sac had grown to 9 weeks but no baby had developed inside. It made losing the pregnancy a little easier in some ways.
(I still had a lot inside if you get me & really needed closure - didn't fancy the possibility of 2 more weeks bleeding & another scan, sometimes after all that you still have to have a d&c anyway) Had to wait another 5 days but that was my choice & better with regards to my job. The hospital had given me 2 tablets to take at 5am to help soften the opening to the womb.
You also have to fast from midnight for the anasthetic.
