Bleeding and scared

I am 4 weeks pregnant and have light blood when I went to the toilet.

I rang the doctors who said it's not a guarantee of miscarriage but I did also get a severe cramp in the night.

It's obviously so early nobody knows yet but my sister says this can be normal. I am however petrified.

Has anyone else had this ?

Thank you for your hugs! DH has taken kids to football and is expecting me to go over as well, instead of " moping at home"

I know he means well but I'm feeling really drained fragile and not up to hanging about on a freezing sideline.

Sorry you are going through this, horrible isn't it!?

I'm 5+3 :/ a few days ago I had terribly heavy bleeding and clots the size of my palm, emergency doc referred me to the EPU and had an internal scan, they couldn't see why I was bleeding..... But they said the baby had implanted too low and they need to wait and see what happens, I have a scan next Friday but Im not too hopeful of anything being there. Pregnancy symptoms seem to have gone too sad

Not sure if this may help reassure any of you who have had bleeding, but I had unexplained bleeding & cramps from about 8 weeks on & off until about 34 weeks. Had scan after scan & internal after internal. I had a healthy baby girl 3 days overdue! Feeling your pain xx

Can I join this not so happy band? I'm maybe 6 weeks and have woken up with cramping and some brown discharge. Been resting up for a few hours and its not too painful but I'm not feeling very hopeful. It seems such an uncertain time for all of us, these first weeks.

Am I alone in thinking if it is the worst then I'd like it to happen quickly so we can try again? Reading these miscarriage threads does not make for cheering news. hmm

Thinking of you others in the same boat this weekend.

I am about 5 weeks pregnant, and on Thursday evening I started light bleeding, and having a little stomach cramps. Friday I went to the Early Pregnancy Unit and they said that I'm still pregnant and that the I need to return back in 10days. I am really scared, as I have continued to have a flow of red blood, and only this morning I had a small pea size blood clot.

Me too. I'm 11+5, good healthy scan on Friday but I've been bleeding & cramping since yesterday morning. Went to A&E and I'm waiting for EPU to contact me in the morning when they open.

Good luck everyone
