I'm nearly 6 weeks pregnant and been having bleeding since sunday hadn't been happening everytime u used the toilet, anyway had a scan yesterday I had thought I was 8 weeks but they put me at nearly 6 weeks all measurements would be right for then & had a heartbeat too I had only been off the pill for 2 months so dates could be right esp as I was not getting very strong hpt results or cbd were behind the dates I had.
So had scan yesterday bubba there heartbeat there they can't see a reason for the bleeding I have been cramping bit more on & off since scan & the bleeding has got a bit heavier just wondered if anyone else has been through this & what the result was any advice would be grateful

Hi mumofthree....I had some spotting and light bleeing at 7w6d, which was a Friday....it then was on and off all that day and all saturday but only had a small amount once on the Sunday night at 10.30pm. It then starts again on the Monday and I had a few bright red spots so I went to A&E. I then had a scan on the Tuesday and saw that bean was fine and measuring exact and they also couldn't find a reason for the bleeding. I then had a bit more on the wednesday but had nothing since.
I since found out that I have BV, an infection and I am aware you can have spotting from infections so not sure if this is the reason for me. I am currently being treated using a vaginal gel for 5 days to clear it up.
As you say though you still worry as I have been since the scan as now I have seen the bean I love it even more and don't want anything to happen. I have my dating scan next Tuesday and can't wait just to make sure bean is ok in there. Good luck and hope your bleeding stops.
Not sure how true it is but I have read that the risk of misscariage lowers once a heartbeat is detected...this put my mind at ease a little but as I say I don't know how true that is xx

Hey hun I bled till 10 weeks. Had bad cramps in lower back and sometimes the blood was pink and watery, or red, or had brown stringy bits in it. Doctor said I was most likely losing my baby. Had scan and all was well, no reason for the bleeding found. I'm snuggling with my 20 day old baby girl as I type this good luck x

How are you today ladies? Ellie, how is your bleeding etc now? I rang epu this morning, even though I have a scan books for next Tuesday, and I just explained that I am still in a lot o pain and still bleeding (though it did stop last Thursday it started again on Saturday) the nurse on the phone was absolutely brilliant I explained that basically I just cannot go another week like this, emotionally and physically I have reached the environment of my rope and they have booked me.another scan for ten o'clock tomorrow morning. I am going to ask them to do blood work too and test for infection etc. Have you tried ur local epu recently Ellie? I use to be a bit meek when I rang them and just say I wanted advice but I basically begged them to help me because it is all getting too much and they were beyond brilliant. Good luck hunni and I hope all goes well for us both and I will update after my scan tomorrow.. xxx

My EPU are amazing, but as I saw them last Wednesday and they saw a heartbeat they've closed their file and I need another referral to go back up. I see my midwife tomorrow so I'm going to ask her for another referral and if she refuses I'll go back up to A&E. I cannot wait another 5 weeks til my dating scan to know if everything is ok or not, it's emotionally draining and I need to know either way. Best of luck for your scan tomorrow, I have everything crossed for you xxx

Hi, I'm pregnant with my second baby and am 8 wks+3 I had spotting on Friday went to EPU they did internal to check my cervix was closed and it was fine. But still sent me for scan yesterday morning, had to have an internal scan as the baby is under 10wks baby is fine no problems heat beating away nicely. Since the scan I've started getting but of cramping and slight watery bleed as I wipe. I was told it's normal to have that after the internal scan so try not to worry.

Just found out I was 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. I've been experiencing some minor cramping and bleeding with the doc yesterday and was told I could have a miscarriage. I go for my scan Toddy to find out if my baby is OK or not are these thing I should be worried about in seeing how I didn't experience any of this during my first pregnancy
