I've not been in your position but my advice try to stop worrying (easier said than done) trust in what the hospital have told you. Treat yourself well, really you just have to go with the flow as there isn't too much you can do. Is your doctors keeping an extra check on you and your progress?
Its quite common for spotting in pregnancy, some women even have periods throughout

Hi i totally understand tour anxiety. It is such a worrying time especially if things have gone wrong before. Mild cramps and spotting are experienced by lots of women in normal pregnancies. It just heightens the worry and puts you on constant high alert which is so tough. All you can do is keep an eye on it and keep in touch with your doctor even for reassurance.
I got positive test on day 24 just two days ago. I felt crampy days 24 25 and now today it seems to have eased and my breasts are nt as sore at all so im up the walls! I had a miscarriage last year and had no luck conceiving all year so was given clomid tablets. They worked this month. I should be thrilled but im terrified. Im feeling and analysin g every twinge or lack of signs. Im just so afraid of it not working out. Im hoping my breasts get sore again soon!!!
Best of luck!

Have you had an early scan done? might be worth pushing them to do one or i know some women have paid privately to put their minds at rest.
trust your instincts - it's your body

I can share my story..
We were trying to conceive for about 6 month when I finally fell pregant we both were really excited. Happy. I didn't feel much of symptoms apart from breast pain and strange taste in my mouth after every meal. I was trying to stay active as I usually am active. When I was 6/7 weeks I noticed brownish discharges now and then, but not a lot. Obviously I was panicking, called my midwife, she said that she can't do much in such early time and gave me another number to call on. So I called and they kept passing me further away. Nobody seemed to be able to help me. Then brownish discharges stopped and I though that everything is fine and relaxed a little. However, one day woke up and realized that I feel energetic. There is no strange taste in my mouth and generally I felt fine. I thought that I am one of the lucky ones who won't be sick for whole 3 moths. Unfortunately couple of days later I started spotting. Called hospital and all they said was 'Put a pad on and keep an eye on it. If bleeding is heavy and you have to change your pad every 20 min then come in' So I did as told. Waited. Next day I realized that spotting has gone into bleeding.. bright red! Called again, the I told them that I have pretty heavy cramps to, which I didn't have. I did have a bit of pulling pain but not very strong. Went to hospital.. by the way, by that time I was exactly 11w+6d and they told me that they think that I am having a miscarriage. And they sent me home. Most emotionally painful thing I have experienced in my life. Especially that I was seeking for help, but every single person turned me away until it was too late.
So after that unfortunate occasion I fell pregnant again, which I didn't expect to happen as soon. We, again, were really happy, but this time we are really cautious. I had some spotting again when I was 5 weeks, instantly I went to hospital they checked and all seemed fine, I was 5 weeks and they could see heart beat yet, then couple of days later I was spotting again.. same thing again went strait to hospital, then at 6weeks I went again they confirmed that heart beat is present, at 7 weeks I went again because I had some brown discharges and wanted to be sure that everything is still fine and they confirmed that everything seems really good and that the baby has grown a lot since last week.
Have to mention that they prescribed me to use Progesterone but only because I started to ask about it, as it might help my body to hold on pregnancy.
Now I am 8w and 2d and feel terrified again because I don't feel sick anymore as in the past week I was really sick. Couldn't eat properly. I still feel pain in my breasts but I don't feel this nausea.. thinking to go to hospital tomorrow again. What I am saying is.. when ever you feel worried go to hospital, they have to check you. I know I might seem like crazy women but If something like this has happened before it is absolutely normal for us to want to be reassured. Good luck girls.. Just thought I should share this..
Yesterday I read one very good comment.. one girl said 'You have to be like lioness who protect its babies.' So, I will take this advice and will head to hospital tomorrow.

Not a great news update 😞
Had A scan Friday and heart beat was Seen baby measuring at 3.7mm so thought great was me be overly worried. Still didn't 'feel' pregnant though, no sickness no sore boobs, nothing. thought I was lucky.
over the weekend kept telling myself to stop worrying but my gut instinct told me something wasn't right.
Started led bleeding like a notmal period Monday morning, read plenty of good stories so thought I would be lucky as I wasn't passing many clots. Gradually got worse with pain but nothing un bearable. woke up Tuesday morning with no pain just bleeding still. Went to early pregnancy unit (who were amazing and so compassionate) to be told it's not meant to be and I had had A complete miscarraige.
My bodies way of saying not meant to happen this time but doesn't soften the mix of emotions.
the hospital have been fab and so re assuring it's helped. Will just have to see what the future holds.
these groups/chats have been so useful in knowing it's not just me. strange how it's easier to talk to strangers than those closest.

A13i, Sorry to hear it. Hope you are feeling as good as possible in such circumstance.
Nobody knows how it feels unless it has experienced itself. And remember, you can always try again when you feel ready.
Take care. (hug)
