Hi this is my first pregnancy so am unsure what to expect. I'm 6 and half weeks pregnant and I've been having cramp like pains as If I am going to get my period and have had spouts of brownish blood since last week. last night and today it had worsened. I have been to the EPU and they have said that they cannot tell me if the baby has a heart beat or if It is develop as it is to early to tell. I have a scam booked for Friday but I am driving myself mad with worry that I am going to lose my baby. Has this happened to anyone before and is it normal. Or does this mean I am losing my baby. Please help I'm so worried

Sorry you are going through this Mickella.
Cramps can be normal as things grow & stretch but if they are causing you great pain & discomfort it can be a warning sign of something wrong (it could be a miscarriage, it could be a water infection...sadly they won't be able to tell before 7wks in most cases).
Bleeding again can be quite common & have many causes (it could be an infection, it could be implantation bleed, it could be a low lying placenta, it could be a weakened cervix...)
Sadly, it is a waiting game for answers & there are many possible answers. Hugs & best wishes

Thank you for your reply. Just so worrying. I am trying to stay positive but it's so hard. It's just a waiting game. 😢

If its just brown blood and very light like spotting I think thats quite common. I've read posts from ladies experiencing that during early pregnancy quite a lot on here
