I am currently 9 + 2. I got my BFP on 3 Dec and it said I was 1-2 weeks which would fit with when I thought I conceived (I thought 19 Nov). On 17 Dec I had red blood when I wiped and was told to go to A&E to get checked. Based on the last bleed I had (10-14 Nov), I was about 5 weeks pregnant. They said to me it could be normal bleeding, a threatened miscarriage or a miscarriage and to wait and see what happened. I called my MW the next day and was booked for an early scan at what they thought was 7+ 2. I couldnt have a scan until 7 weeks as they say you cant really see much. I had that scan on 2 Jan where the lady measured the foetus from crown to rump and it measured 19.2mm. She then dated my pregnancy and I was actually 8+4 which meant I actually conceived 3 Nov, before my bleed which was like a normal period. I was told the baby was fine and I also saw a strong heartbeat. I also had awful period like cramping sensations for a few weeks.
So.... After that essay, What I am trying to say is that it is likely to be normal bleeding, albeit heavy. I would go off the date of your last period until you are dated on a scan.
Good luck x

Good luck Hun I bled for the first 10 weeks with brown/red stringy bits and really bad cramping in my lower back. Doctors said I was most likely losing my baby but a scan confirmed at 8+5 that all was well and they found no reason for the bleeding, it just stopped after 10 weeks. As u can see I'm due 1 month today and touch wood all is still well. Try and relax and rest as much as possible and keep us posted x
