I'm a first timer and am at about 7 weeks. I haven't had any morning sickness since day one...and the sore boobs kinda stopped being sore last week... That would all be alright if it wasn't for this weekend...on Saturday after a wee, I wiped and has a little bit of brown discharge - yesterday that turned into a bloody discharge on wiping (red)... and today back to a little bit of brown discharge - this only happens after a bowl movement... I have some dull period like pain (nothing sharp or crazy - a 3 on a scale of 1-10) and am now panicking that this is the start of a miscarriage ... i finally got the scan booked for tomorrow morning but between now and then I'm driving myself crazy and would love some feedback. I've not had any bleeding in during the day -- it's only after I go (sorry) number two that I get that discharge. If anyone has any insight I'd really appreciate it xx

Thank you for this feed, it is helping g me to stay calm (ish lol), I'm about 4 weeks and this is my second pregnancy unfortunately I had a miscarriage a number of years ago. So I feel very on edge at the moment, I keep reading over and over again that this feeling good is normal and I know it is deep down but can't help worry!! Hearing others go through the same is really helpful and just wanted to say thank you. ☺

Bleeding in pregnancy is actually more common than most people realise, there can be many reasons for it - implantation bleed, low lying placenta, sensitive cervix, water infection, irritation/injury from sex, torn ligament...
We are told to assume the worst until the Dr confirms otherwise but it doesn't always mean the worst

sad to say that the spotting and cramping turned into a full blown miscarriage. I'm sharing this because after the shock and the tears I got some great information. Miscarriages are common (in my age over 40 it's 50%). Silver lining is you are most fertile after a miscarriage and you could be pregnant again soon enough. This time with better information. 5mg Of follic acid is said to significantly address most issues - - and shots of progesterone could help support the pregnancy in the first 12 weeks. If I had only known. But - we had a little ceremony and acknowledged this was not meant to be and it made us stronger to try again and be positive. You can't let this process dull your spirit in trying to build a family. I won't deny the process of losing no matter how many weeks you are is a SHOCK and there are no words to describe the flood of emotion you go through. But if you can sray positive, and look to the window right after to conceive (as it was confirmed you are most fertile following the ms) then things could look up soon. The more you let it tear into you and your partner the more fear will get the better of you -- and THAT stress is the worst for conceiving.
Stay positive ladies. We were build to endure the toughest physical and emotional feats.

I am so sorry for your loss, I know how heart breaking it can be.
I went through the exact same thing back in July this year, it does get better though. I thought I was 9 weeks pregnant when I had the bleeding but it turns out the baby passed away at 7 weeks 5 days.
I recently found out I am expecting again, fingers crossed this time. So when they tell you that you are more fertile after a miscarriage then believe them. Remember everything happens for a reason, and talk about it...it really does help.
