Am I definitely miscarrying?

I am about 6 weeks, over the weekend had brown mucous discharge, this gradually increased and on Monday was spotting blood.
I had a scan at EPU who saw a heartbeat and said all was well.
However today bleeding has got heavier, like the start of a period, with some small clots.
Feeling pretty despondent, assuming its over. I am going in for a scan tomorrow morning to see what has happened.
Any advice?

I'm sorry for what you are going through, and also sorry that some of the hard of thinking brigade have posted on this thread.

I mc'd a 6 week foetus (but at 8 weeks - it was a mmc) and bled for 2 weeks in total. Only a couple of really bad days on which clots were pouring out of me and then about a week and a half of something similar to a period. So you might well have more to come. I just wanted you to be prepared. If there is a clot blocking the cervix that will slow things down temporarily.

I am so sorry for your loss, thinking of you at this difficult time. When I had a miscarriage I found really helpful.

I am so so sorry for your loss.
Well done for ignoring the vile cretins you are a stronger person than I would have been at the time. I found having a toddler at the time of my last MC really helped. I took a couple of weeks off work and threw myself into giving her the best 2 weeks I could. Did lots of things, made sure I was out of the house & her smiles really got me through the worst part. I promise you it does get easier. Look after yourself x

What helped me through, was being told by the doctors that a miscarriage frequently happens for good reason - ie, it's your body's way of dealing with something that's not as it should be. It stopped me dwelling on what might have been, and on the original due date I didn't make, I was actually visiting the delivery suite a few months before DD (ie the subsequent pregnancy) was due.

I am so sorry chick sad so very sorry x

I am also sorry you had to read what those idiots posted, but I'm glad you can see that they were just trolling fuckwits.

(Prettykitty111 do posters the decency of reading a thread before posting when it is a serious thread. The OP updated more than 24 hours before you posted)

Very true Scholes34 ,, So sorry to hear of your loss OP.

Re the Trolls and their comments . . best way to deal with those types is to completely ignore them , do not feed . .. . Report away but don't mention it , ,they hate being ignored..

I'm so so sorry for your loss, try to rest as much as you can xxxx

Thankyou everyone for your lovely comments and support.

Honestly the trolls have not affected me, I wouldn't give them the satisfaction!

I'll pop back across to the TTC boards soon. Obviously I am gutted by this m/c but going to try to chalk it up to experience and get on with it.
I know many more women than me have been and will go through this many more times. I am lucky enough to have a healthy DS, I know many others don't.
