Sorry if this is tmi but I got myself into a panic this morning. Woke up to find old (brown) blood when I wiped after using the loo. It wasn't a lot within two wipes it was nearly gone. I am not bleeding now and have no pain. I had my scan Wednesday and all was fine and that was only 3days ago. But this has scared me even though I know I shouldn't panic. I have spoke to my doctor who is not worried and has told me to rest, my instant reaction was to cry and then i couldnt stop lol I'm ok now have pulled myself together finally and stopped the panicking. Was just wondering if anyone else has bleed at this time and had no pain this is ny second pregnancy my first was fine I have a beautiful 6 yr old. Please give me a slap and tel me I am over reacting lol

Hi, i had similar bleeding at 6 weeks and everything was fine they did give me a scan but i think that was only due to a previous MC. If your really worried you could phone the maternity assessment unit number will be in your notes and ask to come in to see them. I went in at 22 weeks for no movement and they let me listen to the heart beat which made me feel much better.

I would go for a scan. Chances are this is nothing, but as someone who had a bleed at 12 weeks and later contracted strepB due to suspected cervical incompetence I would always err on the side of caution.

Hello, I've had that type of bleeding during both of my pregnancies and it has turned out to be nothing. On the first one, it was on and off until about 16 weeks. The GP told me not to worry about and most likely it would go away. Second pregnancy, it was just a one off and I called the early pregnancy unit, as I thought it was a bit more than on my first pregnancy. I went in for observation and stayed overnight and was discharged the next day.

In my case, it was probably just my body telling me to slow down. Bleeding is sometimes associated with placenta previa, but this was not the diagnosis. Definitely, if you experience some pain or the bleeding continues call the maternity services. The assessment units are usually closed during the weekends, so call the maternity ward or page your midwife if you need assistance/reassurance today.
