Hi just wondering if anyone can give Any advice or share any experiences.
Im currently 7 weeks 4 days pregnant with my second baby and started bleeding yesterday morning, it started out as little spots of dark brown to light pink colour then as the day went on the bleeding got heavier and redder. Its not quite as bad as my normal period but definitely more than just spotting.
I phoned the doctors straight away and was given an emergency appointment, the doctor then arranged for me to go to the early pregnancy unit but assured me that he didn't think I was losing the baby and neither did his colleagues, he thinks its just normal pregnancy bleeding due to me having a hormone inbalance. In the afternoon I went to the hospital and was given an early scan which was inconclusive, the sonographer/midwife said that although she cannot see the baby she believes that it is fine but that I am a week less than what I was told and that would explain not seeing the baby as all the measurements she took would be right for 6 weeks. They have done a blood test to look at my hcg levels I don't know the results yet and I have to go back early tomorrow morning for another test to compare levels. The midwife also said that she doesn't think that I am losing the baby and that I shouldn't worry too much unless I get unbearable craps and am soaking through 2 pads an hour.
So far no pain whatsoever, no clotting and the blood flow and colour keeps changing. I am going out my mind I just want to know if my baby is ok and the wait is killing me.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
