Good to see you here smile.gif

I'm another who spotted in the early weeks of pregnancy with DD1. It was brown but I also had other stuff which turned out to be wall lining. Enough to send me around the bend so I can only imagine how you're feeling. It's a shame your FS's bedside manner was lacking - sometimes all you want is the reassurance.

Shall keep everything crossed for you x


I think that you have hit the nail on the head there. I guess that I was just expecting more.

Has anyone ever received an answer as to why we spot after a bfp? What the causes are and the like?

I got a shrug and 'sometimes it just happens'. They speculated that the major bleed could have been a twin but I don't buy it - that was at 10 weeks and we only saw one at the 7 week scan, so who knows? I put it down my uterus making itself nice and cosy.

I got much the same answer as flowerrose - after all the tears and worry that I had miscarried, I expected a better answer! The Dr did at least humour me and allowed me to hand over my frantic collection of pads for sending to pathology.

Any update Bmee?


The update, well right now I have that feeling that I want to vomit. It's only subtle, but it could also be in my head. I also have this weird tingly flutter sensation. Again, probably in my head. I rang the fertility specialist today because I'm still getting faint positive HPT's. In all honesty, if I compare the test from 2 days ago to the one this morning they are definitely getting darker, but I've been getting positive pregnancy tests since I first posted this so I don't know what it means.

Anyway, back to my conversation. I rang the FS and demanded a HCG Beta to be completed. So I went to get blood work at midday today. I will get a follow up blood test on Friday and then will see the FS on Saturday morning. At this stage, he is of the belief that it may be an ectopic pregnancy.

This is what my test this afternoon after work looked like (keep in mind, this was taken from a digital SLR so I've been able to zoom in on it. It's faint, I know this, but it's dark enough to still raise questions after 3 days of solid bleeding with clots the size of my palm!

I do not think that I am 'pregnant'. I sincerely hope that I am and that everything is fine, however something tells me that this is not going to be the case. My partner and I DTD on the 8th of January. If it was a viable pregnancy I would imagine the test being a lot darker by now. I just want answers. I want to know what on earth is going on. I want to know if I need medical assistance to get my levels back down to zero.

I feel I'm owed this.

So I've been going nearly a week with positive pregnancy tests. And it took me pushing the FS to do something about it.

And this is the test I took this morning.

I thought that after getting a darker line that I would move to a digital test, and try that again, but it was negative also (not pregnant).

Will phone the FS at lunch time today to find out the HCG levels.

I am starting to wonder though, if there is anything else that will show up as positive pregnancy test and not be pregnant. Could a hormone level be out of sync? Could there be a growth?

I know that I'm looking way too far into this, but like I've said, dates don't match.

Anyway, will keep you posted.

Are you checking the line within the 10 minute window?

I know that I have had lines appear on tests many times if I forget to check within the window (not with that brand though). It means nothing. There is a website peeonastick.co.uk that might answer some questions for you.

Probably best to talk to your FS though.

development is a journey, not a race

These photos were taken at 4 mins so well with the timeline.

Hcg results from Wednesday blood test was 9. Definitely not confident with a result that low but having blood taken again tomorrow. I anticipate it will be lower.

I just wished the FS had done blood work when I saw him before the bleeding and everything else.

Been here before.

This is me again this morning within 6 minutes of testing. It is getting darker but I have also started spotting again last night. Nothing massive, not red, kinda watery pinkish. Going for follow up hcg today and specialist at 9:45 tomorrow

Not too sure if anyone is still reading this, I guess I'll just keep posting.

Good luck with your tests today. The emotional roller coaster of hope and fear must be awful. I had very low HCG with my first preg and they didn't rise fast enough however it turned out perfectly. I didn't have bleeding though. Thinking of you xxx

Thank you hun, and yes it is horrible. I want to be hopeful with the fact that the test from today is a lot darker from 2 days ago and I am sincerely hoping that will also be reflected in today's blood work. As much as I want to be positive, I don't want to get my hopes up either.

Will see what tomorrow brings

Definitely still reading here.

Best of luck for your test and appointment today Bmee! I know the HCG was low, but they are very clear lines. My first HPT was so faint I couldn't get it to show with a camera at all.

Thinking of you.

Well HCG from today is back. And they have gone up by 135% between Wednesday and today.

Wednesday it was 9
Today is it 21

Tried a different HPT today also (a stronger one) and it was positive also.

To the fertility specialist tomorrow morning. Hopefully it's implanted in my uterus and not somewhere silly like my toe. Ok, like I'm not serious, it cannot implant in my toe but you know what I mean. Just trying to make light of this.

Little tingly feeling in lower abdominal area. Massive headache that I can't get rid of. Ugh, going back to bed.

Fingers crossed
