I'm no expert - it might not be mc but with any pregnancy bleed, you should go to the hospital & just get checked out.    

Fingers crossed for you that everything is ok!

I would suggest you go to the Emergency Room. How far along are you? I've had 4 miscarriages and clumps can often be a sign, along with pain. Are you getting any pain?
You must be going out of your mind right now, I was a mess when it was me, the best thing you can do is get seen by the docs, everything might be fine, but at least you'll have peace of mind. All the best hun, I really hope that your bubs is ok!

I am a mess and my husband is away and family are away. I have period like pains. I am only 6 weeks. Last night I just didn't feel pregnant anymore so I think I know the answer but I just don't want it to be.

I'm so sorry to hear that OP, and it sucks you have no-one to sit with you. Us eb'ers can sit with you online though original.gif

Are you holding up ok? Are they going to give you a scan? I know its a really heartbreaking thing to go through, but fingers crossed you get scanned and get some good news. Don't give up hope yet.

OP I'm so sorry, it must make it that much harder without hubby for support. DO you have any friends or relatives you could call? I know when it happened to me I needed someone there for me. Try to think positive, hard as it is, I have a friend who at 10 weeks was told to go home and wait for the miscarriage to complete, but turns out she was ok and now has a very much healthy 8 month old. Every pregnancy is different, unfortunately all you can do is wait. Maybe push to get a scan as that may at least give you more concrete asnwers, being so early they will probably do a vaginal one to see better but at least then you'll know one way or the other.

Thank you for all  your thoughts. he/she is gone. I am so sad sad.gif I never thought I would be so upset. My husband is flying back from simpson desert. I feel silly for making such a fuss for me, I'm sure all the rig boys are wondering why I would care over a 5 week old feotus. It had a heartbeat - I guess I was in love already :_(

Take care xxx

When I went through this a few years ago the heartbeat hadn't even started yet. I was still incredibly sad. It is a big loss for you, especially if you had already attached yourself to your pregnancy which by the sounds you had. Make sure you give yourself the permission to grieve. All to often we sweep it all under the carpet and do not address our grief. It is oK to feel sad and to cry. Sending a big hug your way. I  am glad your hubby is coming home to you.

I'm so sorry OP. I also had a miscarriage at 6 weeks, its a very hard thing to go through. Be gentle on yourself, and allow yourself to grieve, its very normal to feel heartbroken. I'm glad your DH is flying back to be with you. Thinking of you OP.

Take it easy on yourself and let yourself grieve.  One of the best things that I did was write in a journal every night for a while, even though I'm not normally a 'writing' person.  It really helped me to express and make sense of my feelings, and heal...

So sorry for your loss x

So sorry OP - it doesn't matter how many weeks you are, the emotional response is the same and it is so heartbreaking. Don't feel as though you shouldn't be grieving, because it is natural to do so. Take care of yourself.

You were a mummy to that little bubba the moment that second line appeared - it may be early but it doesn't mean it doesn't hurt.

Be gentle on yourself, hanz. Big hugs x
