In brief: was 10 weeks pg and had some bleeding, went for a scan on Friday and there was no heartbeat, and baby was measuring only 7 weeks 4 days. Have been bleeding all weekend but only period type bleeding and no pain. Have to go back on Friday for another scan to check progress and am worried that I will be booked in for a D&C if things are not moving, which I really don't want.

I've been drinking raspberry leaf tea in the hope that this may help move things along, but does anyone have any other advice?

Hi Angel I hope not. A lot of women experience bleeding in early pregnancy and in about 50% of cases everything is fine. In the other 50% it will progress to a miscarriage. You may wish to contact your GP who can refer you to the local early pregnancy clinic. If you are only 5 weeks then they may not be able to see anything on a scan, but can examine you (things like a positive pregnancy test and a closed cervix would be reassuring) and then scan you at about 6 weeks to check for a heartbeat. There is nothing you can do at this stage to influence the outcome, but sometimes knowing either way what is going on can make it easier to deal with.
I've bled in all my pregnancies and at the moment am the living proof of the 50% figure - 2 DSs and 2 1st trimester miscarriages. The moment where you see blood and all your hopes fall apart is the worst thing. I hope this is not bad news for you, but if the worst happens we are here to help you pick up the pieces. Jen xx

The cramping and heavier bleeding is happening now. I'm scheduled for a D&C tomorrow and I can't help but want to cancel the whole thing. I've been meditating and telling my body it's okay and now the cramping and stopped. I just want it to be over now! Went in yesterday and was told that at 7 weeks 2 days my baby had no heart beat and was showing signs of chromosom defects. Like many of you ladies I just want it over now.

I am 9 weeks pregnant. Had a scan 2 days ago.No heartbeat. Yesterday I started to lightly bleed. I am trying nettle tea, raspberry leaf capsules and parsley and pineapple. I'm putting it in a smoothy to try and speed things up

I was 10 weeks and very excited for my first ultrasound but they told me there no baby development and the sac was only 8 weeks. I was devastated I didnt really ask about my options and my doctor just told me a natural miscarriage would happen and be best. Im living out for school and cant see her til the end of this week at which point i will have been living with this horrible reality for 2 weeks and i just want it to be over now. I need to move on with my life but knowing its still not over with torture

I started having light bleeding on Thursday evening and put it down to implantation bleed even though I was almost 9 weeks as I had that with previous pregnancies. Cramps and bleeding on Friday so went epau emergency. Had cervix checked but they didn't scan me. Was told no sign of mc and bleed was maybe due to sex. Went hope feeling hopeful only to wake at 3am Saturday morning in severe pain and heavier bleeding! Went A+E where I was sent for a vaginal scan. No heartbeat detected and baby stopped developing at 7 weeks. I opted for natural mc which is slowly progressing. Ordered raspberry leaf tea to hopefully speed things up and avoid D+C. Hugs to all!
