Question: Why do i have dark brown blood discharge doing 19 weeks of pregnancy? I.O. (UK)
Question: I miscarried at just under 8 or 9 wks pregnant which was 3 weeks ago i was still clotting 2 days after so i had an ultra sound but they scanned me really low to check for tissue which had not passed out which was what they found and im just wondering if they could of missed a second baby as twins run on my dads side and my mums side of the family. I had a scan at 5/6 wks but the scan picture looks like it has a little bit of another sac showing at the top right hand side from behind the first sac and i still have the symptoms. So, could they have missed the second baby because of all the tissues as they did not do a d/c on me? I feel crazy for asking because i think i just want it to be the case but hopefully you can put my head straight. R. (UK)
Answer: Whilst I understand how devastating any pregnancy loss can be, it will be dishonest of me to tell you that I can give you a definitive answer to your question. All I can say, however, is that it is very unlikely that a twin would have been missed on the scan you had earlier at 6 weeks. The gestational sacs at this stage are quite distinct. I am wondering whether what you refer to as ‘a little bit of another sac’ was actually the yolk sac. On balance, I think the pregnancy you have lost is unlikely to have been twins. Check this image below to see how a twin pregnancy at 6 weeks appears on a scan.

Question: My baby's head is fully engaged and I’m 36 weeks. Does this mean i can go into labour at any stage? I am also getting tightenings and ripping feelings in the vaginal area and am having some sort of contractions. A. (Australia)
Question: Hello, I had a missed miscarriage back in march but have just found out i am pregnant again. i am very happy to be pregnant again but am also worried that i might miscarry again. i cant wait the 12 weeks wondering if this has happened. If i took a weekly pregnancy test and i had miscarried would it show up on the pregnancy test results? Also, i have a constant dull period like pain, is this normal? ( i am only just pregnant - 4 weeks from my last period). Thank you. C. (UK)
