Hi girls,

I'm 9 weeks pg tomorrow and when I went to the bathroom this morning I had red blood when I wiped sad it was proper red too. I think I lost about a tablespoon of blood so obviously I panicked and put a pad on. I've had a bit more spotting since but nothing the same and I've got no pain. I had a scan a week ago that showed a heartbeat and seemed to show all was well sad

Unfortunately I'm currently abroad so I cannot call the epu to get another scan Tuesday!

Does anyone have a similar story to share where it didn't end badly? I've had a miscarriage already and no children yet so I would be devastated if this is going the same way, especially when I'm not even in the countrysad

Honestly everybody is different and you have to assume you are fine until you are told different by a medical professional. Everything crossed for you re. scan xx

I had pink spotting and then one instance of bright red blood when I woke up between 6-7 weeks I was terrified after a previous mmc but somehow just knew it was ok, my first thought when I saw the red blood was don't worry its fine. I had a scan at the epu which showed a heart beat and baby measured fine smile they found no cause!
Then I had a perfect wriggling baby at my 12 week scan and now I'm awaiting my 20 week scan on Thursday :D it can be ok!
Be prepared for the worst but don't panic you have hope!

Hi girls,

Thanks so much for all the messages- it really helped a lot and helped kep me going when I was away.

I just had a private scan and everything is progressing well, heard the heartbeat and everything. Am so relieved. There was no cause which could be found for the blood. Very strange but I'm not complaining. smile it just shows how common it is though!

Just seen this thread, Chatty, and so relieved to get to the happy news at the end. I bled for ten days at 5-6 weeks and was told I was probably miscarrying but was booked in at EPU to check, where we saw my baby's beautiful flashing heartbeat which was wonderful after days of misery and uncertainty.

I then bled quite heavily at 23 and then at 26 weeks, both leading to overnight admissions, scans etc. with no obvious cause found. I was warned that late pregnancy bleeding is linked to premature birth, and my son did pop out quite quickly at 33 plus 1.

But he's absolutely fine now, nearly 10 months old and asleep on my lap.

Thanks guys- yes it's a mega relief. I had already started thinking about which "option" for management of a miscarriage I would go for this time and what I would do about work, so it's amazing to have the good news. X

Great news OP, what a relief for you!

Pregnantagain7 Mon 16-Jun-14 17:50:29

Whoop whoop that's fantastic news! smile hope you have a very happy and non eventful pregnancy now. They never found a reason for my bleed either as you said it does seen to be very common.
Another one of those bloody awful pregnancy symptoms no one ever tells you about! grin
