This answer was rated:

My periods have been very reguler since I lost my baby at 25weeks in Dec 2012. I have had reguler periods starting on the 27th of each month. I ovulated on the 10th of April and didn't have a period on the 27th of April. Does this mean I am pregnant , but lost it? As my period started this morning. I was feeling very feverish and abdominal cramps
Dr. Owen : Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Dr. Owen : Hello
Dr. Owen : Well I would suggest doing a Pregnancy test such as a test fro EPT, Clear Blue, or First Response - and if the test is not positive, then you just had a Late period, but if positive, you could be having implantation bleeding or a possible miscarriage -
Dr. Owen : So try to do a pregnancy test first.
Dr. Owen : Hi
Dr. Owen : I am sorry you lost your baby recently
Dr. Owen : and since you had a 2nd trimester loss - I hope that your ob/gyn is helping you to find out why you had the loss.

The baby was diagonised with a heart defect and tested positive for Downs . So had to terminate

Dr. Owen : I see
Dr. Owen : I am very sorry about that

No worries , i guess these things do happen

Dr. Owen : Usually Down's does not repeat itself - just to let you know
Dr. Owen : I wish you well
Dr. Owen : If you have more questions, please ask
