Hi all, I'm certain I'm miscarrying right now but there are some things that are confusing me and I'm hoping someone can help. I'll start at the beginning, my LMP was on the 2nd January, I had ovulation pain on the evening of the 19th and got a very faint BFP on the 31st January at 12dpo. The BFPs got stronger over following days and I had positive clearblue with conception indicator on the 11th February reading 2-3 weeks, I know to not read too much into that, but by my reckoning that was bang on with what I should have been. I had some dark brown blood when I wiped on Thursday evening, nothing Friday day and more dark blood when I wiped on Friday evening. I had an early scan on Saturday where a sac and told sac were found, but no foetal pole. The sonographor put me at 4 weeks due to the size of the sac, 9mm I think it was, And recommended another scan in ten days. By my dates, I should have been six weeks at the very least, and that's accounting for the fact that ovulation could have been the day after I felt the pains, or it could have taken a while for the egg to implant. I'm still only getting brown blood, only when I wipe, and no cramping at all. The blood got slightly heavier yesterday after the scan and was tinged red, I can only assume this is because she was pressing quite hard on my stomach. I have mc'd before I had my son, which started as brown blood but quickly turned red and got heavy. Is it normal to take three or four days before the bleeding gets heavier? Has anyone else experienced this? I have to be referred to my local EPU so I'll try and get to them this week but I just wondered if anyone had gone through anything similar? Thanks in advance xxx

Hi hun. I am having EXACTLY the same as you. Even got my bfp on cbd on 11th Feb saying "pregnant 2-3" same as you. Brown spotting started Thursday and have had it on and off since but nothing today. Everything says I conceived on the 22nd January but I know for a FACT I didn't cos we only had sex twice last month and the second time may have been too late in my cycle to catch so I KNOW I am around 4-5 weeks since conception. Anyway i am going to ring epu tomorrow and doc's. My lmp was 8th Jan and that makes me six weeks and four days pregnant (only by lmp dates though) the docs add on two weeks as they count your pregnancy as beginning from the first day of your last period, you are actually full term at 38 weeks. In my last pregnancy (my daughter is eleven months now) I a exactly the same. Spotting at six weeks by lmp went for scan they said I was four weeks and found a yolk sac and sac but nothing else. Went back two weeks later and there was a little Bean with a a strong heartbeat and they dated my pregnancy that day at seven weeks and three days and those dates were stood by throughout my pregnancy. I really wouldn't worry too much hunni it DOES sound like you are just very early. Time will tell for both of us hey!? Good luck hun and keep us posted.xxxxxx

Hi, i experienced the above at 5 weeks. I had some pain followed by a show of bright red blood which turned to brown spotting with some clots over 2 days but no contractions. I had a scan which showed I had a heamorhage next to the baby sac. The brown blood was my body getting rid of the old blood from the heamorhage. The baby was fine but they had to do a vaginal scan as the baby was so small to show on normal scan. I carried on having the brown spotting for 2 weeks before it finally stopped. I was told to watch the colour of the blood and to ring EPU if it became red. I had another scan 2 weeks later which showed the heamorhage had thankfully gone.

Hi Ellie ,
Good luck to you honey! I hope it's not an mc! To answer your question 're brown spotting - yes it is possible that it will carry on for days before it turns red. I had a missed mc last year,spotted Brown for over a week,had a scan and only started bleeding 3-4 days after the scan. I had no cramping or any signs of miscarriage to start with Sad times
I hope it turns out to be nothing serious honey!!!

Ladies, I am so sorry!
Ellie - your GP is an idiot - just like mine to be honest!!! They haven't got a clue how worried we are when things like this start happening . . . I hope it goes well at the walk-in centre and you get a referral. Some ladies had unexplained bleeding and their babies were happy and healthy and I really hope that this is happening in your case also - don't lose hope yet!
Keepthefaith - good luck tomorrow honey. have your symptoms gone or you still getting them?
