Hi, I'm new to the group but just need some support at the moment. I had a missed miscarriage 3 months ago. It was heartbreaking as we went for our 12 week scan excited to get a glimpse of our baby and the room just went silent and we realised there was no heartbeat. I found out 2 weeks ago that I am pregnant again and should now be 6 weeks, however I had a sudden gush of fresh blood Monday night and my heart sank. It stopped quickly and I rested as advised and pregnancy tests still show a strong positive. Today I gushed with blood again and even had a small clot passed so of course I fear the worst. I have no pain, whereas last time when I finally miscarried I was in agony. They will not scan me until Wednesday as I will then be 7 weeks. I am lucky to have an amazing husband and a gorgeous 2 year old who are keeping me going but I really do just feel devastated, helpless and exhausted. Is there any hope? I don't know if I can go through this all again.

hi mummy
I know the waiting is horrible but unfortunately only time will tell. I know this is rubbish and when I was going through it every day felt like a fortnight.
I have had bleeding in early preg and now have a 2yr old and ive also had bleeding that hasn't ended well.

If you start bleeding heavily and are soaking a pad in under an hour then a visit to a&e would be a good idea.
I really hope it works out for you and I'm sorry for your loss earlier in the year.thanks

Thank you! It's just nice to talk about it and vent as nobody really knows yet. I'm sorry you've been through something similar- It's positive to hear that bleeding doesn't always mean an unhappy ending at least though. No heavy loss at the mo so will keep an eye. I have everything crossed but as you say time will tell x

Hi mummy I've had it go both ways too. I had bleeding for 6 weeks in early pregnancy with DS2 having previously had a MC and was convinced every day I was losing him. It's a horrible time. Hope you get good news at your scan.

Thanks Bakingtins. My body keeps messing with my mind I think! When I bleed I think 'that's it-it's over' and when it stops and I have sickness like this morning I think 'maybe it's going to be ok'. At least if it's happening I have early warning this time I guess. Getting to 12 weeks last time thinking everything was hunkydory was an awful shock to find my baby had stopped growing some time ago. Glad all worked out ok for you and your DS2 and thanks for commenting smile x

hi mummy
how are you doing now?

I'm doing ok so far thanks as have had no more bleeding since my original post. Preg tests still coming up strong and haven't faded at all so I'm still hoping we have a chance. Been reading about placenta previa causing this sort of thing even in early pregnancy so perhaps it's something like that which could correct itself (clutches at straws!). Trying to rest up and am def of work for a while as am a nurse on a very physically demanding ward. Thanks for checking in on me-hope all ok with you too x
