Over the next 2 days I continued spotting, but tried not to worry too much about it and just tried to feel happy that we were pregnant! After all, I didn’t have any cramping or anything. Everything else felt just fine.
2 days after our positive pregnancy test, I was on a 12 hour shift in the care home I was working in at the time. I was still spotting through out the day, but I started to feel some cramping. So I got onto Dr Google and felt reassured after reading cramping and spotting is very common in early pregnancy. But obviously I still felt nervous, so I rang the clinic and spoke to a fertility nurse who advised me to take another pregnancy test tomorrow morning to make sure I wasn’t losing the pregnancy.
When I got home that night, I wasn’t feeling very confident at all. I spoke to Will about how I was feeling, and of course he was really supportive and told me we would be fine whatever happens.
I just had that gut feeling that it wasn’t going to be this time.
As the night went on, the cramping got worse and the spotting got heavier but still not ‘full flow’. We went to bed with our fingers and toes crossed hoping that we would wake up in the morning and everything would be fine and our pregnancy test would still come out positive.
Morning came around, and I knew what the result of that pregnancy test would be. My spotting was much more like my period now. I knew it was bad news.
I took the pregnancy test, and me and Will were waiting anxiously for the results. Those 3 minutes felt like years!
And there it was, negative 😦
We were expecting it, but that didn’t make it any easier to come to terms with. We were gutted. We rang the clinic to let them know the result of the pregnancy test, I was then advised to stop taking the pessaries (the only thing I was looking forward to after all this) and they would book us a follow up appointment to discuss further cycles.
Today was a really sad day for us.
