I am around 7 weeks+2 at the moment. Last night when I went to bed I went for a wee, and when I wiped it had red blood.
This morning it went to brown dried, then brown discharge after a number 2 (sorry).. I rang the GP and went in. BP fine, tummy felt normal and no pains. Early scan already booked by hospital for Thurs morning, so she said unless anythinh changes go and rest and try to think positive..
All day virtually nothing and just went for a wee again now and
fresh red blood with three tiny clots in. I took a photo for reference and will keep a track. My husband is on his way home from work after me calling him.
I have no parents as are both deceased and no siblings as an only child, so at 34 I needed to write to you just incase anyone has a positive story!
This is similar to last October when we lost a baby at 12 weeks so as you can imagine I am very worried but trying to keep calm just incase!
Deep breaths... and luck to us all...x

I'm sorry to hear that Alfiesmummy such a stressful time for you. There has been some people on the sitwo who have had bleeding but went on to have a healthy pregnancy so you never know. Try and stay positive as if wee bean is sticking in there they need you to be. It's good you've got the scan on Thursday. I'll be thinking of you xx

hope your ok, glad you've got a scan booked for Thursday.
I had a bleed followed but brown discharge for a few days when I was eight weeks. Was such s stressful time but everything was ok and Pip was staying put. I'm sixteen weeks now. Try not to worry, I know it's easier said than done.
Will be thinking of you Thursday x

Hi Alfies mummy, just wanted to tell you about my situation (it's all good!!). I miscarried twins in Dec and had another earlier mc in Feb. I fell pregnant again and thought everything was going really well. Then when I was 5 weeks 3 days, at my Nanna's funeral, I felt a gush (so more than just when I wiped). My knicks were soaked (sorry tmi!!) - bright red blood. I was devastated and in shock. I went to see the GP the next day, had a bit of brown d/c that morning. She rang the EPAC but they said I was just too early, I had to wait a week and see if it settled down. 6 days after the first bleed, I had another - felt the gushes again, more bright red, followed by brown for a day. By then I was 6+1, it was bank hol and I presented to A&E after ringing up. They were kind but all they did was book me in for a scan 3 days later. However, the day before my scan, I had the worst bleed yet - it lasted constantly for 8 hours - a LOT. I was in tears. At the scan the next day, I was prepared for the worst. BUT I did start feeling nauseous in that time which gave me hope that things might be ok. And there was a tiny blob on the screen with a little fluttering heart Since then, I've had brown discharge every day. I've had something every single day from the 19th May to now. And it's still coming out. There's a pool of blood around the gestational sac and she said it can be caused from implantation when the little bean burrows in - it might have hit a blood vessel. She says it's like a bruise. It'll either come out or be reabsorbed by 12 weeks (apparently). The good signs were : pregnancy symptoms; and NO pain. This is all good stuff. I had a follow up scan on Sunday and it had grown and its heart was still beating away I know you'll worry until you get a scan, but hope this helps? I have a book at home that says 1 in 3 pregnant women have some kind of bleeding in the first trimester and go on to have a healthy pregnancy.
I genuinely wish you the best of luck hun, I really do. I'll be thinking of you on Thursday. Please let us know (if you can).
Lots of love and hugs xxx

Thank you all so much for all your love and positivity!
At the moment I have had a bit of bed rest, and overnight nothing happened at all.
This morning when wiping, a small amount of brown stringy discharge but so far nothing else.
Am trying to stay relaxed and positive, and hoping I can keep it all as it is without further incident before tomorrow morning.
Here's hoping, and big hugs to you all

That all sounds good hun and the fact that you're not experiencing (well you haven't said) any pain is really super positive. Best of luck for the morning. xxx
10/06/2015 at 18:39
Thsts good sounds like a bit of rest done you good. Good luck for tomorrow x
10/06/2015 at 18:59
Thanks both, no I have had no pain or other symptoms at all.
Still not feeling 100% positive but tht is down to October..
Yes scan is at 9am tomorrow so unless things change tonight then we will wait and see what that reveals tomorrow.
I do believe in fate and miracles, so let's just see if my angels up there are keeping us safe!
10/06/2015 at 21:08
That's good your feeling okay, although you will be concerned after october, but miracles and positive things happen. I'll passing on good thoughts. It's good it's 9am so not hanging about all day. Good Luck x

Thanks Butterfly31, yes it is early enough. My husband and little one are going to drop me off to save the stress off driving and parking. They will go have some time together and pick me up when I am ready and then we can all be together whatever the outcome xx

Good luck for today Alfiesmummy, will be thinking of you

Thinking of you this morning x

Thanks all, back home again now. Well it went better than I thought in a way, as the scan showed the sac has grown significantly, and I could see the fetal pole too! She couldn't see a heartbeat, but she said all I can say is inconclusive. She has booked me in again for next week and we will take it from there.
I feel a lot more positive, as, let's not forget, the dates are up in the air at the moment which means I could be as less as only 5-6 weeks, so unless things change for me and I get any red blood and pain etc, then it may be even happier news next week!
Either way I am much brighter for now.
Thanks for all your support! Xx

That sounds positive alfiesmummy1 x
It's good that the sac has grown and the fetal pole can now be seen. It's a horrible waiting game but next week will soon be here xx
11/06/2015 at 10:47
Thank you sunny5, yes the old waiting game yet again! Least I have a pic to look at to see what is what at the moment xx
11/06/2015 at 11:30
Sounds positive alfiesmummy1 - hang in there.
11/06/2015 at 14:05
That sounds positive of Alfiesmummy, that's good sac is bigger and uou csn now see the fetal pole so shows development. It's hard not knowing for sure, hoping next scan you'll see a wee heartbeat ing but today sounds positive. Good luck for next week x
11/06/2015 at 14:07
Really pleased that its not negative news!
Just make sure you rest up this week in order for your body to do what it needs too!
11/06/2015 at 15:08
Thanks again all, just fingers crossed that the brown when wiping stops, as that doesn't help me relax!!! Good Luck to everyone for healthy happy wee ones xx
