Hey Mamas,

I'm kinda cross-posting - probably not good forum etiquette but I really need some opinions and the more the better.

I recently m/c on Feb 12 and ovulated on the 31st. 7 days later I got waht I thought was my period. I have been battling a very short LP so I just assumed it was my period yet again early and it was fairly heavy for me. I recently took opk's around the days I expected to ovulate again and they were all positive so I took a hpt and got a BFP. BUT, my cycle is wonly and my temps are all over the place and I am so worried that something is wrong.

Unlike my other m/c the BFP is REALLY, REALLY dark.

I went to see a friend today at our local pg center. She reconfirmed a BFP. But we are confused with the cycle. The last 'period' seemed way too heavy to be implantation and she thought it could be a molar or ectopic pg or a blighted ovum or a m/c.

I have booked an appt with my Dr tomorrow. I dunno, after everything recently it just seems wonky and not right. I will ask for an u/s for sure.

I'd be so grateful if you could take an objective look at my chart . The first one is this months - the one below it is last months ( starting at the first day of m/c bleeding). http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/21d4c1

I dunno, I get a weird feeling about this...it's hard to be excited right now. I feel sick to my stomach.

What do you think? Shoudl I be so worried?

Hi (again
) MP - I was 7 weeks with this m/c and when I had a m/c before DD I was 10 weeks.

What I did notice both times was my bfp wasn't so big and fat more very faint and got fainter, not like this one is at all but who knows.

Well then thats not far enough along to warrant the "could you still get a bfp from a recent miscarriage" because your body wouldn't have the hormones anymore by now. Just ruling that one out.

I wish you the best and hope it all turns out to be nothing but one stressful night and 9 lovely months.

Aw, thank you so much mama - I think you are saving what's left of my sanity right now
.

Hmm but the bleeding this month could have been m/c bleeding ) ie m/c on march 21) and the tests showing the hormones but I wouldn;t bleed like that after only 7 days of being pg would I ?Plus that's usually not enough time to even register the hcg......

no it wouldn't be like that if it were that soon. There's all sorts of scenarios, both good and bad, that this could be.

You weren't completely cleaned out from the miscarriage so that was your body finishing it now that it's pregnant again (such as a clot near the cervix, your body would have to bleed more to force it out), the aforementioned not-so-great ones, miscarrying a baby but keeping it's twin (fraternal, very possible, especially after a miscarriage), just how your body is (yes, even bleeding that heavy can happen when pregnant)

For now... you need to just take a really deep breath and remember that tomorrow you should know what's going on.

Thanks MP, you are right. I think I'll go and do some yoga and check on DD sound asleep -that usually grounds me). I'm not sure the hospital will be able to fit me in for an u/s unless the Dr classes it as an emergency tomorrow so I may have to wait until Wednesday ( out here you have to see the Dr and then get a referral for an u/s)....if so, I really do need to take some deep breaths as I can't keep this level of stress up for three days straight ...thanks for that reminder Mama.

PS so gettting pg the cycle after a m/c increases the likelihood of frat twins? Hmmm I didn't know that...now that would be cool

AW, MP, thanks so much for checking my chart


My Drs appt is in 5 hours from now....then if he wants to do anu/s that will prob be wed or thurs.

Could they tell much on an u/s at 5 weeks pg?

Thinking back to DD I was bleeding with her at exactly this time and at 5 weeks they detected a heartbeat but said it was unusual that early. DD also had a due date of Dec 5 and I was in the hopsital for an u/s over the Easter period too...this is SO weird.

Anyway,I am tryign not to stress. I almost called to cancel the appt and just let my body do what it is going to do one way or the other...you know kind of leave it up to fate, but DH thinks I should get it checked out.

i think it's a good idea to get it checked out as well. a u/s this early will at least be able to confirm how far along you are. good luck! can't wait to hear an update from you.

at five weeks they can tell:

1. whether or not its ectopic
2. whether or not it's developing (blighted ovum/molar/miscarriage or healthy)
3. a much closer due date than you could be given using lmp or later ultra sound (my daughters ultra sound i was 4 weeks along and her due date was 3 days off of when she was born!) as they will give you exact date of conception and go from that rather than lmp
4. there is a chance (especially later this week) to see heartbeat. That's right! Week 5 is actually the week the heart starts beating!

But if you don't see a heartbeat, don't worry... it may be too early in the week to see it yet. They'll be able to tell a LOT from an ultrasound so I'm almost positive your doctor will send you to one (and if they're worried about the bleeding may even make it an "emergency" ultra sound, which is possible but you'll see)
