so I found out last wk that I was pregnant (8 -9wks) and got extremely excited as it would be our first baby. I started getting some pains, like period pains and feeling how I would when my periods about to arrive. I called the doctor and she said not to worry but let her know if things progressed. I then started to notice abit of bleeding and called her back, now the bleeding is nowhere near what I would experience with periods but enough to be concerned. the bleeding got heavier and I called the doctor only to get a out of hours doc that was so unhelpful so I headed to the hospital where the nurses really made me feel like I was extremely stupid for going up and basically said I was more or less wasting their time and told me everything felt ok but id need to go back for a scan this wk as for some reason I couldn't get one when I was there yesterday. I am so scared I have lost this baby, because I think I have but I don't know if im just thinking the worst? has anyone been through this? would be really grateful if I could get some advice! xx

well I ended up putting a pad on to see and there was a good amount which is why I went to the hospital. the out of hours doc told me the same thing, sounds like a early miscarriage. they didn't do an internal or anything so ive just to wait until Thursday for a scan. its the waiting game I cant cope with. my doctor is going to phone me as they are usually good but I just cant help think the worst.
Thanks for getting back to me Haleigh, you've made me feel better. just want to get to Thursday or even see my own doctor! glad all is well with you.xx

im lucky that ive a few easy days ahead of me with work I can just sit in my office and do very little. bleeding a little bit and no pain today, I feel ok today apart the sickness of course but no pain which is good! everybody is different when it comes to pregnancy suppose but we haven't told anyone yet. its literally me and my husband who know and that's it. we wanted to wait until this wkend as my husbands parents come home from holiday on wednesday and wanted to tell them at the same time! so its been really hard avoiding my parents atm! all I can do is hope I can get to Thursday without going crazy!xx

Hi ladies, I had a little bleeding in my first trimester and i know a couple of other people who did too. I was told it usually happens around the time your period would be due so it would be around 8 weeks or 12 weeks along. Anyways, I freaked out and convinced myself that I had lost the baby as i had cramps too. It all turned out ok, I'm now 32 weeks pregnant. I would try and relax and really take it easy - put your feet up!
As for waiting until Thursday, that's outrageous! I was seen straight away about it. I would def push for an earlier scan. Its totally unfair to make you wait that long and you need to know if everything is ok so you can relax and it will hopefully stop anything further happening.
Oh and my friend who had bleeding is due to have her baby in 2 weeks so seriously there is not always a horrible ending to these stories. I think unfortunately a lot of women who talk about this type of thing on websites have had bad experiences.
Best of luck, try and relax and i'm sure all will be fine xx

AngWass2. your lucky you got a scan so quick, although my doctor called me today and was lovely, tried her best to reassure me and said she will phone the EPU and get me an earlier appointment. and how are u feeling now? has your bleeding stopped?xx
JoJo25 I know when I asked could I not get a earlier appointment because we were anxious the nurse looked at me like id asked could I give birth to a bloody giraffe!! its just easier to think of the negative when these happens! you've really put my mind at rest thank you.xx

Just wanted to let you know that I had my scan today and baby is fine and measuring exactly as it should be I saw the heart beating away and it was tucked very nicely away on my left side, quite low down! Hope your scan goes well tomorrow....please let us know. She had a good look around and couldn't find any reason why the bleeding might be happening but just said it is quite normal in early pregnancies to have some bleeding.
I have been a little stressed with work since Thursday so maybe that is the reason why I started spotting on Friday. I now feel relaxed and have had no spotting since first thing this morning xx

Ah that is brill news Jilly....glad everything is going well for you too! I am still having bleeding on and off and although I know everything is good it still makes you panic and it's not normal. Are you still having any?
I do feel a million times better though after seeing the little heartbeat x

So pleased all was well with your scans ladies , very reassuring to see the heartbeat isn't it , I've read that the risk of mc goes down dramatically after seeing the heartbeat , had our 20 week scan yesterday , n even now I worry n check the toilet tissue nearly every time , hope you're managing to take it easy , lots of baby dust being sent your way x x
