#misCOURAGE story, 20/04/2017, by Sara
I am 29 years old and trying for my second child.
I was 6 weeks pregnant when I started to bleed slightly. I went to hospital, had some blood tests done and they told me my pregnancy hormone high but were unable to find anything on the scan.
I had to repeat the bloods 48 hours later. My levels had dropped so the Doctor prepared me for the worst.
I had to repeat my bloods again another 48 hours later and have another scan. My bloods have dropped slightly but this time a little something was picked up on the scan.
The Doctor told me she did not know what to do with me. They want to know where the pregnancy is.
I have to go back to the hospital in a weeks time to repeat my bloods and have a scan.
I know myself that I am no longer pregnant but when I am I able to try and get myself back on track? It is a very upsetting, confusing and emotional time for myself and my husband.
I am already a very anxious person who suffers with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and I am terrified that if I were to get pregnant again these symptoms will be elevated and the heartbreak will happen all over again.
I have also been sent away from the hospital with no information about a miscarriage, so I do not even know what to expect, or what is normal.
