small amount of blood at almost 7 weeks.

It's only a tiny amount but Ive had three previous m/c (all different, 1 early, 2 later) and I'm freaking out. I've already had 2 scans and found a just detectable heartbeat last friday. I'm due for another scan a week on friday and they will only see me before that for "significant symptoms" such as heavy bleeding.
I have to try and ignore it and get on with dinner and homework etc for the dc, but I'm feeling very panicky. I think I'm starting to feel crampy too.
I don't think I can do all this again.

thanks Do not panic! Once there is a heartbeat things are much 'better' as you know.

I had this too, and am just on my way to pick DS up fron nursery now. I thought I had lost him, but when they scanned I was told there was just a bit of stray blood, it went away and never happened again. Be kind to yourself.

oh I know the stats, but there was a heartbeat last time at 8 weeks which supposedly gave me a 98% chance of success, but by 10 weeks it was over. Again.
Sorry to be so pessimistic. I didn't use to be.

Oh Grockle sad. I am sure there will be someone much wiser along soon, but in the meantime I am here and listening if you need me. Keep your strength and remember to eat something.
