Miscarriage & pregnancy loss

hello, sorry in advance for the long post I just want to see if anyone has had the same problem as I am going through at the moment and if they have any advice.
i found out I was pregnant in July and a few weeks later I was bleeding heavily so I thought and assumed I was having a miscarriage. (I had one earlier on this year too). Weeks and weeks went by and I continued to bleed, when it got worse I decided to go to the hospital and it turned out I was 9 weeks pregnant! i was so shocked and happy they called it a threatened miscarriage We saw the heartbeat and they said everything was ok and this is common. So i went away worrying but happy. itnstarted to get better with small amounts of blood more brown then red. then I started bleeding heavily again! I called the hospital and went for a scan and everything was still fine! heartbeat and baby was doing well and got told I'm about 11 and bit weeks. but they said my placenta is low but not
to worry. Since then it was ok then yesterday I had more heavy bleeding and it went on for longer than normal and took a while to settle down. I called the hospital and they said to not worry as I wasn't having pains and it could just be my placenta.
i should be having my 12 week scan done soon! Should I be worried? Will my bleeding stop completely?
thank you to anyone that takes their time to read this x

Hi Katie, I have suffered bleeding in one of my pregnancies and a lost plug in one other. But not your specific problem I have heard of ladies having healthy pregnancies and babies with a low lying placenta. I believe as the pregnancy goes on they will keep a much closer eye on you. Try to rest and not stress your body to much. I hope your scan goes well and you go on to have a better pregnancy than it has been so far xx

Don't know if anyone can give me any advice but I am 6 weeks 3 days pregnant according to my charts. I have been cramping since Tuesday pm and started light bleeding later that pm, went to hospital and they done an internal examination and internal scan, couldn't see baby but this is possibly due to being so early, I am 42 days past period but I am usually 34 day cycle, my hcg was checked and low at 158. I'm so scared of losing my baby (first pregnancy) trying for 3 years, was back at hospital yesterday with more bleeding but not heavy just when wiping a slight coming away. does it sound like I am losing my baby? I will have my hcg levels checked again tomorrow morning but its seems to be a lifetime away. I have lost my pregnancy symptoms since bleeding started. no tissue like clots although my gyne took away a large clot yesterday with second internal examination she didn't tell me what it was as she said my cervix was still closed. anyone who has had these symptoms weather it has been bad or good news I would really appreciate hearing these. any help... I don't think I can deal waiting another night with no clue what to except tomorrow

stsf sorry to hear you are going through this, as my post said earlier I have suffered bleeding in one of my pregnancies and he is now a happy 6 year old. Unfortunately the blood test are the best way of finding out if things are progressing well. Try and get some rest and hopfully you will have answers soon xx

i wouldn't worry to much yet! (i know it's hard, I've been a nervous reck) but not all bleeding and cramping is bad :) and it's good your cervix is closed! If the doctors don't seem that worried then you shouldn't worry.. x
