Last night me and my pregnant girlfriend (12 weeks) were out and when we came home and got ready for bed she got a bit upset because she had been bleeding a little (I don't know how much exactly I didn't want to get into measurements with her because she was upset) but enough for her to start worrying.
Anyway I calmed her down and she started complaining of stiffness of joints in her neck, back, arms, legs...basically all over. She had been fine earlier in the night it seemed to come on fairly suddenly.
Morning came and I got quite worried because she could hardly move and she really had a high fever, I mean she was absolutely burning up. I was thinking by this point she has the flu or something. She convinved me to go to work and I did, but I checked back in on her at lunch time. The fever had gone and she was up and about but was still tired and achey.
She's convinved herself that she's fine, that the stiffness was due a cold. I'm not so convinced.
Could this be a miscarriage of some kind? I've been reading about septic miscarriages and it sounds scarily familiar. I just want to know how hard to press her to go to the hospital, she's convinced herself that she is fine I'm worried perhaps she might be in a bit of denial.
Had a scan and everything was fine
