This is my 1st pregnancy and I am 6+6. I've just been to the loo and noticed I was bleeding. I did have a period pain feel and still do. Also (sorry if TMI) but me and DH had sex last nightfor the first time since we found out.

Should I worry? Feel a bit teary and worried. Thanks x

Don't panic. This could well be a harmless cervical erosion that has been irritated by last night's sex. Is your spotting brown, pink, bright red?

Stinkyminkymoo Sun 26-Jun-11 14:30:16

It is a sort of watery pinky brown, I do have what feels like bad period pains, worse than I have had for a while.

Trying not to panic, but am crapping it a bit sad

Try not to worry and call your doctor/MW.

Stinkyminkymoo Sun 26-Jun-11 14:39:55

I don't have a MW and the dr surgery is closed.

I have a MW appt on the 30th but will see what happens today and call the surgery tomorrow.

Cool, I hope everything settles down.

Stinkyminkymoo Sun 26-Jun-11 14:47:24

Me too. Think I will have a little snooze And try not to worry.

Stupid DH wanting sex.

I've just been for another wee. It is red and dripping. Not good.

Am crossing all fingers but not really hopeful sad

Thanks for your support x

pregnantmimi Sun 26-Jun-11 19:06:29

call doctors first thing or if worried go a and e

PieMistress Sun 26-Jun-11 19:09:09

Do you have an EPU (early pregnancy unit) nearby? You can self-refer to some of them, others you need a GP/MW referral.

Fingers crossed it's harmless xx

Stinkyminkymoo Mon 27-Jun-11 08:32:37

Had quite bad cramping all night and bleeding got thicker and clottier during the night.

Am waiting for the surgery to open so I can see the MW/GP. I don't feel very hopeful, but thank you for your kind words and support. I'll let you know how it goes x

Tortoiseonthehalfshell Mon 27-Jun-11 08:33:50

Oh, love, I'm so sorry.

Crossssssshairs Mon 27-Jun-11 11:24:49

Im sorry its not looking good. sad

pregnantmimi Mon 27-Jun-11 11:30:16

slinkyminkymoo the gp should get you in for a scan today hope it goes okxx

Stinkyminkymoo Mon 27-Jun-11 13:41:29

GP was lively, seems I'm 8 weeks, not 7. He did an internal exam and my cervix is closed. No ectopic symptoms either.

He has sent a fax to the hospital requesting a scan either today or tomorrow.

Would feel reassured but been for a wee and a blob of mucasy blood came out (sorry guys) so still not sure sad

Will keep you updated as and when, thanks for the kind words x

Stinkyminkymoo Mon 27-Jun-11 13:42:42

ETA: GP was lovely, not lively! Stupid iPhone.

I had vermillion bright red bleeding for a night at six weeks. It was all fine in the end (albeit I did lose a twin, which caused the bleeding). Am now 16 weeks and bled on and off until 13 weeks. Best of luck x
