Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the people who replied to my last post, I was touched to see that people out there who don't know us really do care and it was good to hear from those whose experiences are similar. Its difficult at the moment as we had made the decision not to tell anyone about our treatment, so there is no-one we can talk to, I think this site may be our lifeline over the next few weeks.<br>Saw my GP this morning who was no help what so ever, more or less told me not to clutch at straws, hospitals don't make mistakes etc- and shes probably right- i'm just finding it a little difficult to believe at the moment. I have decided that if I dont start bleeding over the weekend I will take the medication they offered, but they WILL re scan me first just so that my mind is at rest.<br>I have a couple of questions if anyone can hel<br>If my baby has died, how long would it be before I would miscarry naturally? and would I still be suffering from morning sickness and sore boobs?<br>Anyway thanks again for all the support, I'll keep you all posted, and good luck to all those currently on this rollercoaster<br>Love Debbie & Stuart xxxxxx

Hi Debbie<br>it's a shame your doctor wasn't more sympathetic, it really doesn't help does it!!!!<br>As you know my 2nd m/c was like yours but i still haqd all my pregnancy signs, sore boobs, morning sickness, food cravings/turn-offs which is why i couldn't belive it when they couldn't find a heartbeat. I felt i should have "known", should have been able to feel something was wrong, but the cruel facts are that the chemicals and hormones are still in your body "fooling" it into thinking the pregnancy is carrying on. I don't know how long it takes for you body to react naturally under these circumstances, but I felt i had to take control and get the procedure over with asap in order to move on.<br>Sincerely hope there will still be a miracle for you but I am thinking of you and your hubby.<br>Love and hugs<br>Terri<br>xxx

Hi Debbie<br>Sorry you havent really got anywhere with your GP. We suffered a miscarriage nearly 2 weeks ago which was horrific and we are both gutted. <br>I wouldn't accept ANY medication until you are sure in your own heart that the baby has died. When I miscarried, ( I was telling Beck last night) I very quickly didnt feel pregnant but I was bleeding heavily. The sore boobies and sickness very quickly disappeared. It was actually a very bizarre feeling.<br>I can only suggest you phone your local Early pregnancy unit and ask their advice--we can't praise ours enough, they were brilliant. They will give it to you straight and if it is bad news are there with support groups and councelling. The last thing you want to hear from your GP (which I did) is "well at least you know you can pregnant"<br>Take care of each other and hope you get some answers soon<br>love<br>Elaine<br>xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Elaine,<br>I agree that is the most banal phrase in the medical profession's experience of M/C. Almost as helpful as when they start quoting statistics at you.<br>Hope you're doing ok<br>Love<br>Terri<br>xxx
