Little Miracle Story...

Hiya- I posted this in the October Forum but wanted to post it here too so that anyone that's worried about bleeding etc can have a read!!

Morning Ladies,

Well, as some of you may (or may not!!) have noticed, I haven't been on here in a while, and certainly not after my last post saying that I think I was leaving you....

Basically, if you didn't read any of my posts I'll briefly fill you in. I started bleeding the week after I got my BFP and naturally was fearing the worst- the doctors were ABSOLUTELY useless and have done b*gger all from day dot (but don't get me started on that!!) We had an early scan booked from about week 5 but they couldn't do it till I was at least 7 weeks. In that 2 weeks I suffered a huge bleed and passed a clot too (sorry tmi) but once again, the only thing my doc would do was send me for a blood test to check my HCG levels.

I went for the blood test last Monday and she rang me on the Wednesday to say that the test was inconclusive as my levels still seemed high so I had to go for another blood test on the Thursday morning. By now, as you can imagine, although I was fearing the worst I still sort of believed that possibly there could still be a little peanut there because my boobs were still massive and I just felt, well, pregnant!!

Anyway, my scan was booked for 2040hrs on the Monday evening (the longest day in the world EVER!) and my blood tests still weren't back from the docs so off we trotted.... I was shaking like a leaf, I mean I don't think I have EVER been so scared of anything before- and settled in at the private scan place.

Initially the nurse couldn't see anything when she did an external scan so you can imagine how me and hubby were feeling now, we couldn't even look at each other for fear of blubbing. She said she would do an internal because I had a wonky uterus (my words, not hers!!) My legs were shaking so much that I thought I might knock the wand thing out of her hand- anyway, she wiggled it about for a bit and whaddya know....... there was a teeny tiny 8mm heartbeat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also have what looks like a cut next to the peanut (not very medical I know!) which could be what the initial bleed was from and it looks like we did MC one of a set of twins, so really this is one strong peanut in there!

I know it is still really early days but I just wanted to let you all know that bleeding doesn't necessarily mean the worst and I wanted to Thank everyone who offered me all their support when I was thoroughly miserable and down in the dumps!
