Well yesterday, a day after announcing my pregnancy to the world, I spent hours in hospital after signs of an infection. I will put at the bottom what the signs were, for people searching the internet for answers that I couldn’t really find.
I phoned NHS helpline and they put me through to primary care. They asked me to come in and get checked and I got sent to the gynaecology ward with the possibility of a pelvic infection and negative pregnancy test. The outcome at the gynaecology ward was a faint positive pregnancy test, bloods taken, confirmation of what my symptoms were (explained below) and swabs taken.
Since going to the hospital my bleeding has increased. All I can say is not very nice words! Can’t believe that I could lose this baby already. Talk about dangling the carrot and possibly snatching it away from me. I done a pregnancy test this morning, it is a faint positive, not as clear as the one taken when I announced my pregnancy. It is still there though. Also I have my blood tests back, I have a hcg of 33. Very low. So maybe I am losing it. I think I am. I am to have another blood test on Wednesday, so Wednesday night I will know for definite what is happening.
Do I regret telling people? No way! This proves that pregnancy isn’t easy going and not always results in a healthy baby. I got one step closer to being able to have a child. That I am rather grateful for.
Symptoms that made me go to hospital are a bright yellow discharge with a speck of blood.
