I am 10 weeks pregnant tomorrow going by the dates from the first day of my last period. I have been fine up until now. Yesterday morning went to the toilet to wipe and was blood on the tissue bright red then through out the day lightened and didmy worry me as much as I have read its sometimes normal for this to happen. Still rang midwife at hospital and she just said she would book me in for an early scan earliest being Tuesday. Now today I have bleed red blood all day and have bad cramps in my stomach. The midwife told me not to worry unless the blood was filling my pad within an hour which it's not but I'm still very worried don't no what to do this will be my second child my first being a successful pregnancy having my little boy by emregency c section at 38 weeks xxx

Some women do bleed during pregnancy & everything is fine. The fact that you are also experiencing bad cramps is concerning. If they get really bad then i would say go down to the hospital to get checked over.... They can at least check what your cervix is doing even if they wont do a scan until tuesday still. If your cervix is closed then thats a more positive sign.
i really hope it will not be bad news for you new1993... Keep us posted.

I just really don't no what to do after ringing 3 times today now and then just saying unless I'm filling a pad with blood within an hour then not to worry, which I'm not just have bad period like pains and blood when I wipe. do you think I should just wait till Tuesday like they said or not?

Hiya I think if it were me I would want to be seen today. Even if unable to scan you they can monitor your BP and pulse as you could have an infection. I'd ring and tell them that you're having bad cramps and that you don't feel well. They should see you based on that. If not go to accident and emergency. They would then have to investigate you and should have a sonographer available.
If you have to wait it out at home you will only worry yourself silly.
Keeping everything crossed for you xxx

I hope you have a positive outcome by Tuesday at the scan, but like SW2 said bleeding and cramps can weirdly be normal.I'm 22 weeks, at 21 and 1 day I started to bleed, went straight to labour ward to make sure my cervix was still closed and it was,baby was wiggling too,thank god,bleeding went after a day,could never find a reason for it either,just one of those things x

Hi guys, just to let everyone know I have had a miscarriage we have been for a internal scan today and no baby there just blood clots. I'm in a lot of pain and not passing as much blood as yesterday so hoping I've got over most of it now and just wait for pain to ease off now

I think I was expecting the worse today which I got , but after going a n e yesterday and having my bloods taken to be told they were high enough for the pregnancy to be there think it got my hopes up a little bit then today going to the scan shattered them again. I guess I've had one healthy baby befor 2year ago I should be able to carry another again when the time is right. thanks for the support guys x

Yes new1993.... Miscarriage is unfortunately much more common than people realize but as you say, you can be reassured that you are able to carry a healthy pregnancy as you are already blessed with a child.
Rest up as much as you can for now & i hope you start to feel better soon

On Sunday I started bleeding bright red and passing clots, straight away I knew something was wrong so I went straight to A&E and that's when I was told that my baby had died... I feel angry, confused and sad...I was 20 weeks

i understand hun. Ive had 2 miscarriages myself (although not as far along as you... Both around 9 weeks). It will take time to heal physically & emotionally but you will get through this hun. Do you have family & friends around to support & look after you right now?.
be prepared that the sudden 'hormone comedown' can put you on a bit of a rollercoaster emotionally & also physically (i had really nad headaches for a couple of weeks after each one). Make sure you take care of yourself... I know you probably wont feel like eating so just eat whatever you want when you can.. If that means chocolate for breakfast & cereals for dinner then just go with it (i did!).
I found it helpful further down the line to talk things through with a bereavement counsellor. Its so important to acknowledge your loss, both of your child & of your role as a mum for now... talk about how this feels etc.
if you have any other questions pkease ask & i'll do my best to help... I know one of the moat important things in my healing journey was to have the information so i could understand as much as possible about what was hapoening / was going to happen when you're at a point where you feel so out of control of your own body.
