Hello ladies
I'm just really worried at the moment and dont want to waste any of the Nhs time going to hospital. Plus I'm asthmatic so I'm high risk sad anyways...
I started bleeding at 5 weeks pregnant not alot just little spots here and there. Mostly when I go to the toilet..Toke a clear blue and still said I was still 3+. Beeding will last 3-4 days. I didn't bleed for 5 weeks now I'm 10 weeks pregnant. And bleeding has started all over again and it's really worrying me. Anyone else had this problem and still carried on a normal pregnancy? Many thanks all x

My sil bled on and off throughout her pregnancy with my nephew.

Go to the early pregnancy unit to get it checked. Please don’t worry about wasting nhs time. There was a segment on the news last night that said that most other departments were weirdly quiet and they were worried that people were staying home for the reasons you stated. A midwife was particularly concerned. You must go and hopefully they can scan you and put your mind at rest. You really shouldn’t have even waited this long - poor you. Go!

I've bled like mad through this pregnancy (now 12 weeks). Spotting through to puddles on the floor bleeding. Baby absolutely fine. But definitely do ring your EPU and speak to them, they will reassure you. Ours currently aren't having people in for 'just' spotting as it is so common and often not a concern (says the nurse I spoke to when I was in there yesterday - she was explaining to me that I shouldn't worry about bleeding less than 2 pads an hour and they don't either so wouldn't have you in for a scan at the moment for your safety). Ring them for a chat.

I bled in one pregnancy, not loads but enough to think it was over. She’s now 2.
When I told the midwife she said it’s very common.

It definitely could be normal, I bled with my first for most of my first trimester due to a subchorionic hemorrhage and she’s a happy healthy toddler now. But you do need to get this checked out, in my area a midwife or GP can refer to to the early pregnancy assessment unit for a scan to check what’s going on, give someone a call and ask now! Good luck OP 💕

I bled on my last pregnancy. It was a hematoma. Very scary but he is a beautiful toddler now. The NHS are still there for people who need them. Get it checked out. Hope you and baby are OK

I will phone a midwife today and get checked just to be sure as I've had major surgery a few years back on my stomach had half of it removed due to ulcer.. and was under alot of consultation appointments on my first and was borderline diabetic and anemic.. thank you ladies so much 🥰💞 xxx

Hi everyone
I'm the same too, I'm 5 weeks and 6 days and woke up with mild cramps but I thought it was wind. Sorry if TMI. I had a wee and when I wiped there was bright red blood. Wiped a few times and it stopped.
I went back to bed with cramps woke up no blood until I went for a wee and wiped again. It was until 3rd time I got a bit of clot like things appear. I rang doctors and early pregnancy unit but with the coronervirus they dont want me to come in. Told me it could be a miscarriage or because I'm under 8 weeks it could be implantation bleeding but I thought that was lighter and more pink. I'm so confused. I really think I've lost it. My first pregnancy too. Sat on the toilet before crying my eyes out. Researching like mad and found some positive posts on here...any advice or happy stories? Nurse told me to re test in 10 days...

Any news tinks?

FlapAttack23 Wed 22-Apr-20 15:56:01

I had the same as this . He’s 5 now
I went and got checked and was no obvious reason for bleed but all was ok .
Definitely call and asked to be checked smile I had to wait 3 days for a scan after a heavy bleed with cramps at 13 weeks so I thought I was losing him but all ok smile

I bled in my first pregnancy every month up to five months. No one could understand why. Hormones? I don’t know. I had a healthy baby boy. I couldn’t relax all through the pregnancy as I had two miscarriages before having him.

CharlieChip93 Wed 22-Apr-20 15:58:53

They wont see me with the covid 19. I guess I just have to wait and do a test in 10 days and hopefully hes still in there. Scared everytime I go to the toilet I bleed. So you both had same as me?

gwenneh Wed 22-Apr-20 15:58:59

I had bleeding with all three of my DC. I was always able to go in and get checked and there was never any obvious answer for the bleeding. It ranged from spotting to serious, and it was throughout the first trimester.

It terrified me at the time and the uncertainty is so very stressful but for me, all turned out to be fine.

CharlieChip93 Wed 22-Apr-20 16:01:20

Happy for you gwen, I hope I can get the same good news I'm so worried

I had my first massive bleed at 7 weeks with huge clots and we assumed I'd miscarried. It stopped after a day which was a bit weird so I thought maybe there was something stuck and I might need to get things helped along so I rang GP who sorted a scan for me with the emergency gynae unit. I had another big bleed on the 4 days later. They scanned me that Friday and lo and behold there was a baby in there with a heartbeat. I couldn't believe it. I had to go on my own though, which was shit for both of us.

I'm now 8+3 and I've since had another big bleed with clots but they won't scan me until 10 days have passed after my last scan so I have to wait until Monday so I don't know if things are okay this time, but I did go back to the EGU and the doctor checked my cervix which is still closed - good news.

I still don't know anything until my scan on Monday but just to say it is possible to have huge bleeds with clots and things be okay (for now anyway) and that you should be seen at your EGU if you speak to your GP to refer you.

Wishing you loads of luck flowers

CharlieChip93 Wed 22-Apr-20 16:16:33

Thankyou Frazzlerrock you've given me some hope. I hope all is well for you still too. My gp and even the early pregnancy unit wont see me. I thought they would have but I cant do anything more if they wont see me I'm so worried

Passthebubbly Wed 22-Apr-20 16:21:11

What a worry for you. I was an ambulance job at 16 weeks due to bleeding - turned out to be burst blood vessels but god do I remember the fear 14 years on

CharlieChip93 Wed 22-Apr-20 16:22:53

I have a fibroid aswel, I found some texts about even them being the cause of the bleed. I just want to stay positive but it's very hard to

Frazzlerock Wed 22-Apr-20 16:24:06

I'm so sorry they won't see you. I don't know why that is but they really should. Can you speak to another GP? Does your local hospital have an emergency gynae unit instead of EPU? I think they are pretty much the same thing but might be worth finding out.

It's such a worrying time sad. I've a thread going in Pregnancy about my experience so far with the bleeding etc. I think its called 'Here we go again' if you wanted to have a read. There are a couple of people on there who have had the same thing but baby okay.

CharlieChip93 Wed 22-Apr-20 16:26:21

Thankyou, I'm going to try and see if I can get in touch with them. It really is, it's only been 4 days since we told close family. Thankyou I'll have a look for it now x
