Trying to stay positive

So I'm about 7 weeks pregnant this week. I really thought this would be the time I could start enjoying things but it's been an absolute rollercoaster. So far I have had 2 episodes of bleeding and passing a clot but got two scans and everything was great. So tried to relax and just accept this might be the case. But today I have had bleeding again for longer and a rather larger clot pass. Trying to stay positive waiting on the hospital calling but it's difficult.

  • Oh what a worry for you Moira! Great that you've had good news so far though! Fingers crossed for you that everything continues to be ok! Thinking of you!xx

  • Everything crossed that all is ok for you...easier said than done but try not to worry yourself too much xx

  • I've done nothing but worry too! Hoping everything is well with you and baby 🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞 x

  • Had a day with my feet up and bleeding has settled down. My early scan date has been brought forward to tomorrow now instead of next week so at least not long to wait.

  • It's a really stressful time. I really feel for you x

  • Good luck for tomorrow!!xx

  • Aww thinking of you moira. Hopefully everything will be fine. Bleeding in early pregnancy does appear to be normal xx

  • Yeah I definitely think it's is. I had accepted that might just happen. If it hadnt been for the rather large clot I think I would be ok. Still trying to stay positive though.

    Hope things are going well for you. πŸ’ž

  • Fingers crossed things will be ok. What have they said will they get you an early scan? Really hope it works out for you xxx

  • You poor pet, this must be very distressing for you. Fingers crossed all is well xxx

  • So everything seemed good at my check up. I hadn't miscarried and the heartbeat was strong. She mentioned blood in the sac and said that still needs to come away. My husband queried this more as she never told us much so she said it can cause miscarriage but heartbeat was reassuring and she didn't seem concerned.

    Can't help but worry even though I know it is going to happen again. I do try and stay positive though. πŸ’ž

  • How tough it must be to have that hanging over you both 😞 I hope you do manage to stay positive. More importantly I hope your little one keeps going strong and that given a little time, you are able to relax a little and enjoy the rest of your pregnancy 🀞🀞🀞 x

  • You just assume that the hard bit is fine when you get that positive result but I think until you have the baby it will just be one huge emotional rollercoaster. Even for those who haven't had treatment.

    I like to think it's just started giving me grief early and hope it continues too haha.


  • Yea. I didn't realise how much I would stress after getting a bfp. I'm feeling robbed of the joy of pregnancy that I think most "normal" women (for want of a better word) might feel. I'm 7+4 and still testing every day! Thankfully I'm having a scan next week but at the back of my mind the negative thoughts want to take over, I won't let them! X

  • Yeah I know. We will get to 12 weeks then can hopefully start enjoying it.

    On a positive I have had a weekly scan at 6, 7 & 8 weeks so very lucky to see how it's growing as I know most people don't. Positive in every negative.

    Keep us posted how your scan goes next week.

  • Will do 😊

  • Oh this bit is so tough my lovely, just keep going a day at a time.

    I felt as tho BFP was the happy, champagne cork bit, but in reality it does really just open up a whole new world of anxiety. I know you feel lucky, but you're also allowed to feel like this.

    You can do this, you are doing this! Take super good care of yourself xx

  • I hope everything is starting to settle for you now lovely so that you can enjoy this time. The whole thing is terrifying without bleeding, I can only imagine how you must feel. Take good care of yourself. I'm sure everything will be just fine. Sending love x x x
