there ladies, just looking for a bit of advice at this very stressful time. This is my second pregnancy, sadly I had a misscarraige back in January at 10 weeks and had an operation to remove. This time round I am 6 and a half weeks and on Friday night I went to the loo, wiped myself and noticed red blood... It seems to have continued to today but now it's brown... Only seems to happen when I wipe myself, however I've also got some period pains aswel. I called the early pregnancy and they can't see me until Tuesday so I've just been resting. Just wondered if anyone had experienced this? So frustrating as took us 9 months to conceive and that was after laparoscopy for endo and we were devastated the first time round and now it may be happening again I am 27 x
Bleeding in early pregnancy: there ladies, just looking... - NCT
Hey bobby. Hopefully the scan tomorrow will put your mind at ease but until then try not to worry (easier said than done I know). There can be lots of reasons for bleeding in early pregnancy and brown blood is generally considered a good sign (that's what midwives in my epas have told me in the past) - it's older blood - so if it's changed from pink to brown then there's a good chance it's nothing to worry about. I bled a few times in my first pregnancy and have a beautiful 18 month old now.
I had a small amount of spotting when I was pregnant and I now have a healthy 14 month old. Bleeding in pregnancy is normal for some. I noticed that the spotting seemed to come if I had been busy running around at work or else if me and my partner had sex and I orgasmed (tmi). Could this have been the cause with u?
Thanks for the replies ladies, it's just so scary because I had a misscarraige before, it's like I've told myself that's it... It's definitely happening again. I still have the blood it's still brown and again only when I wipe, I do have period pains aswel but nothing bad. I didn't do anything Friday for it to come on I think Thursday evening we may have but it just seems so strange to still bleed now. I've managed to get a scan today half 12 dreading it but at least we will know, fingers and toes crossed xx
Sorry to hear you are going through this, I know it is incredibly stressful. I had a significant amount of bleeding at 7 weeks - much, much more blood than a heavy period, plus very large clots. I was certain I had had a miscarriage but the scan 3 days later found a heartbeat and my cervix was closed. No one seemed to have an explanation as to the bleeding.
I am not suggesting you ignore this, there is a chance it is the start of a miscarriage, but equally there is a good chance all is fine, especially as you have not had prolonged bleeding or severe cramps. Good luck at the scan and please let us know how you are doing.
Check out Mumsnet for lots of discussion on threatened miscarriage, you will find a huge range of experiences there on early bleeding.
I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks pregnant, then I became pregnant again August of 2013. I bleed for the first three weeks after finding out I was pregnant at 6 weeks. I thought it was another miscarriage, but after doing a lot of testing, everything turned out fine and I eventually stopped bleeding and now I have a beautiful 1 year old son. Good luck!
Good thank you ultrasound showed strong heartbeat and baby to be growing at the right size she said the bleed was likely to be an inflation bleed it's settled down down so I'm feeling positive and very happy. Was just so scared because I had a misscarraige and it's just awefuk I guess when it happens it's so hard to think it won't happen again x
