Things not going very well. Can't remember when I last updated you, but I went for scan and internal scan on Thursday last week and they couldn't see very much so had to have bloods taken and then again 48hrs later. Results took bloody ages to come back and when the nurse rang me she couldn't even find the Thursday result to compare with the Saturday result. Eventually a doctor rang me and said that the blood levels had gone up (He didn't give me the exact levels) which was good, and he booked me in for another scan on Christmas eve.
On Tuesday I decided to call the hospital again because I really didn't feel happy about everything and I spoke to a nurse who told me that the levels had gone up but only by 1000 which wasn't very much at all. She said from her experience I have probably had a missed miscarrige. I'm so gutted and confused. I just can't understand why the doctor I spoke to on Saturday reassured me that eveything was fine. Now I still have to go for the scan on Xmas eve and I'm dreading it, even though we are 99% sure of the result, it's certainly going to put a dampener on Christmas. Although I'm so upset about the impending news on Monday I really just hope that they give us a definite answer and don't make me go through more blood tests and scans, I don't think I can stand much more as it feels like it has been going on forever!
And now I'm so scared that once we have had the news, what will happen next?
I feel so cheated, one week of happiness and joy and then 4 weeks of real sadness and worry, can't believe this is happening over a time when everyone is full of festive spirit it just makes the pain of it so much more intense. Will let you know what happens following the scan on the 24th. xxx

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
