My husband and I have been trying for a baby for about 6 months now with no prevail. However, I can’t help but wonder if I was pregnant and miscarried x2 months ago?
I was one and a half weeks late for my period when I done my first pregnancy test - which resulted negative. As I was experiencing no period cramps just tenderness of the breasts and bloatines of my tummy a couple of days later I done another one - which again resulted negative. The next morning which was a Friday; there was a tiny amount of spotting when I woke up so I just assumed that I had started my period. Throughout the rest of Friday and evening there was no more spotting or blood, again the same on the Saturday. However, whilst at home relaxing with some friends, I experienced the most painful stabbing sensation in my stomach which naturally made my crouch over the pain was so terrible, I went to the toilet to find that I was completely drenched in blood, my bottoms and down my inner thighs. I sat down on the toilet as the bleeding was so heavy, I passed a blood clot that I would have to guess was aprox 4-5cm long, immediately after that I felt like I had been kicked in the back. Extremely upset, in pain and quite confused, I cleaned myself up with the help of my husband, put on a pad and tried to carry on my evening as normal. About 20-30 mins later my legs were wet again, I went upstairs to check and I was completely drenched again. Sat down on the toilet because I felt like I kept needing to urinate and this time when I went to wipe a long strip of tissue came out (not a blood clot though this time) I was crying by this point because I didn’t know what was wrong - I had never had a period this bad before?? I cleaned myself up as best as I could because at this point I was unable to walk straight and crouched over the pain in my stomach and back were so bad. I continued to bleed that heavy for aprox 4 hours, needing to change my pads every 20-40mins, my husband phoned the NHS Direct as I didn’t want to phone the ambulance just in case it was just a period?! NHS Direct told us that it sounded like a miscarriage and that I needed to speak to an out of hours doctor, the doctor told me that I needed to do a pregnancy test the following morning and if it came up positive then I needed to go doctors straight away?! I had informed him that I had already done x2 tests prior to this heavy bleeding which came back negative. He told me to go to the walk-in centre if the pain continued.
I explained the symptoms etc to the triage nurse who said it sounded like a miscarriage but wanted to double-check with the on-site GP, after an urine test which ruled out pregnancy and an external examination - the doctor confirmed Gastroenteritis???!!! He advised me to go to A&E if the pain worsened, but I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing . . . . . . . I couldn’t wait to get out of there, he didn’t have a clue what was wrong with me?!
Can you help me? Doctors seem to work on facts, the fact that the pregnancy test showed negative does that mean I wasn’t pregnant as the pregnancy hormone levels are different in everyone.
My period after the above was regular and normal, but I’m now x6 days late for my current period and I’m scared that what happened is going to happen again?
