I'm new on here and just after a bit of advice to see if anyone else has been through the same thing!
I'm 12 + 3 and a week ago last Monday, at 11 weeks, I was at work and had a very sudden gush. I wasn't sure what was happening and thought I might have pee'd myself! I ran to the toilets and I was actually gushing blood. I work in a hospital so I ran to the A&E department and was given a room where I constantly bled heavily for a few hours passing clots and at one point after going to the toilet feeling 'to pass something' that I didn't get chance to grab.
The doctors tried to get me to the early pregnancy unit but they could not see me until 2pm on the Tuesday. We went home accepting the worst and to have the worst 24 hours of dread and tears.
Myself and my partner went to the unit the next day for a scan and was very surprised to see a baby there with a heart beat and everything! What a surreal moment!!! The past week has been an emotional rollercoaster and I feel close to tears often.
They cannot say what it was that cause such bad bleeding. But have said I could had a bleed somewhere and haemorrhaged or the possibility there was a twin.
Constant fear has now set in and I'm petrified its going to happen again. There was no symptoms leading up to what happened so I have nothing to look out for.
I'm still bleeding over a week later, although not heavily. Its dark in colour (possibly still old blood) and sticky in texture (sorry for the gross info!!). I have my original dating scan next Wednesday but it just feels so far away.
Has anyone been through this before and knows how long the bleeding could last for? Or has anyone gone on to have a wonderful pregnancy and a beautiful healthy baby?
I'm just searching for some reassurance to try and enjoy the rest of my pregnancy because I'm sure this worrying isn't helping!!
Thank you for reading my very long post!!!
