7+4 weeks pregnant and losing fresh blood... Update

Can anyone put my mind at rest pls or is the inevitable happening. Im currently on holiday in the Lake District. Whilst out on a walk this morning, i felt a pop down below. I hurriedly found the neatest toilet to find fresh blood in my underwear. I don't know what to do or think .

Sorry for the delay. It took twice as long to drive home from our holiday in the lakes due to an accident on the motorway, which caused me to miss my scheduled scan at the clinic 😢. So I drove straight to A+E where I was scanned and given the thumns up. Little embie is still there with a lovely heartbeat. Doc said it sounds like it was a hematomer ( i do apologise, i have no idea how to spell it) lol

Thank you all for your lovely supportive messages, if it wasn't for you guys id of gone stir crazy this week xxx

Hey lovely- how much fresh blood is it? I had sudden back pain and a bit of fresh blood when I passed the clot and nothing else since. Call your clinic. They may advise you to have bed rest and possibly take extra progesterone. Hope everything's okay xx

Hi. There were a lot in my pants. When i went for a wee there wasn't anything in the toilet but there was a fair bit on the paper. X

I would call you clinic. Rest up for now and just keep checking. If it gets really heavy it might be worth going to The local EPU and ask if they could give you a scan xx

Thanku. I'll phone my clinic now. X

Thanku. The clinic said for me to book in for a scan with them on Friday when we're back from our holiday if im still breeding. But for now , to rest for the rest of the day. She said she didn't want to sound harsh, but if somethings going to happen, it will happen. So its just a waiting game. Thank u for replying x

Oh no sorry to hear that! Hope your clinic can give you some reassurance and that the bleeding stops. Get those feet up!xx

Have you had any pain, or just blood? My partner passed a fair bit of old blood, which then turned to fresh blood at around 6/7 weeks, but she had no cramps. We were seen at the EPU & all was ok. It’s best to get it checked out, but all may be as it should be. 🤞🏼

I have period pain in my lower back. X

No worries - hope it slows down for you & that all works out ok. 🤞🏼🍀

Glad to hear they've booked you a scan. My clinic said the same when I rang about the clot I passed but couldn't offer a scan as it was too early. Hopefully it's just a bleed from somewhere else xx

Reply

Hope so too. Thanku x

Go to the local hospital to get checked out. I had the same and there was a lot of blood my midwife told me to go to a&e. Everything was fine in the end. But they will scan you. Wishing you loads of luck xx

Reply

The clinic said only go to a+e if i start losing clots and in lots of pain. Im in bed at the moment. Thanku x

Reply

Sending you loads of love - I haven’t got any advice as never been preggars before but fingers crossed everything will be ok when you go for your scan on Friday! 🤞🏼 xxx

Reply

Thank you Caza. Im in bed resting. But like the nurse said at the clinic, I cant stop anything from happening if its going to happen. X

Reply

Very true! But fingers crossed it’s positive news on Friday 🤞🏼 defo rest up! Sending lots of love 💕

I bled from 8+5 to 12+4! It was a clot and was constant for 3 weeks. Eventually it resolved and I’m now 17+2, but it was hellish scary. So this doesn’t mean it’s all over but take it easy and hopefully you’ll get answers (positive ones) Friday! Good luck xx

I had bleeding from around 6 weeks to just over 12- had something called a sub chronic bleed. They are quite common. It was bright red blood pouring out slight cramps but no clots. Have everything crossed for you xx

And did you miscarry? X

No, sorry should have said! Currently nearly 28 weeks pregnant xxx

Hi,

I have been bleeding since 4 days past embryo transfer which was 15 days ago a mix of fresh blood and brown, mostly brown but everymorning after my first wee its fresh blood, its been 10 days since my test day and im still getting very positive tests and i was before the bleeding started as i tested super early! so i am hoping the bleeding is anything to worry about, my clinic also didnt sound too concerned, are you on claxaine? Or any blood thinners? As they can make the smallest amount of blood look like alot. My scans next week so im hoping everythings ok i hope everything turns out ok for you xx

Reply

I hope everything is ok for you. Im currently taking 8mg progynova and 2 cyclogest a day x

Reply

Just to reassure you, I bled big clots at 6 weeks, lots of pain and cramping ended up at a and e! All was fine and I’m now 20 weeks pregnant. I was told to rest and increase progesterone. All the best xx.

Reply

Thank you Lolita. I'll remind hopeful then x

I had some bleeding on Sat and phoned NHS 101. I suggest you do the same so they can monitor you. They told me to keep all my sanitary pads in case things got worse and medical staff needed to see them.

They will probably tell you to rest but at least they will do a thorough telephone assessment and let your gp know. My bleeding stopped. I hope yours does too. Glad your wife is looking after you. Hope your scan is OK. Hope you had a nice time at the wedding.

Thanks Moira

Its now turned to brown blood rather than fresh. Is that a good sign?x

Reply

Yes apparently brown is slightly better according to the midwife I saw as it is old blood, but bleeding is not normal (although common)

Hi loulav, sorry I've only just seen your post, really hope you are ok, my thoughts are with you xxx

Any update today? Has the bleeding stopped? xx

Hi. Its been brown blood all day and beginning to near enough stop now. Bizarrely, I've suffered all day sicknesses these past 2 weeks, but today, ive not felt even slightly nauseous. Not sure if thats something to worry about. Thank you for asking xxx

Reply

Well the fact that it’s almost completely stopped is good. In regards to the nausea it’s impossible to tell if it’s linked, or complete coincidence! At least it’s only 2 days now till you can have a scan to hopefully put your mind at ease! Keeping everything crossed for you xx

Only just seen this lovely. So sorry you’re going through this. It’s crap.

I will second what others have said bleeding in pregnancy doesn’t always mean miscarriage. It’s very scary but common to bleed during early pregnancy and most women go on to have a healthy baby 😍

I have good and bad stories; I bled very heavily like a period at 7 weeks with my son he’s 19 now! My second pregnancy wasn’t as lucky.

Good luck for Friday hope it can give you some much needed reassurance xoxo
