You could always ring your local maternity unit and explain you haven't been booked yet but have had these symptoms. They might want to see you on the early pregnancy unit. I think it's best you get checked out but I thought unless the bleeding was really heavy with pain that worsens over time it should be ok. That's only what I was told when I was in early pregnancy but get yourself seen as you never know.
I would try to get an early scan. Probably not today unless an emergency in the NHS being a Bank Hol but you should be able to be seen tomorrow.
I bled (bright red sanitary towel required) during my 2 pregnancies. The second pregnancy I bled from 7 weeks until about 26 or 28 weeks. It's more common than you think but you still need to be checked out. Lots of luck.
A scan in A&E won't be performed by anyone properly qualified so you will have to be scanned tomorrow to check / confirm an A&E scan anyway. Going to A&E now though would speed up your referral to the EPAU so it might be worth it, rather than waiting for GP appt.
If you have to wait for a scan like I did (5 days) with what they told me was a probable miscarriage due to my age (39) and you don't want to and can afford a private scan it may be worth paying out. I had a private scan at 5+5 because of brown discharge, then again at 7 weeks as two days after the first I started bleeding. They said at the scan it was all fine but there are no guarantees since then I had another much lighter bleed, called midwife and she wasn't concerned at all. Said to go to a&E if I get large clts, lots of pain and heavy bleeding. I had the bled on Wednesday night, called Thursday and since then nothing. Sore boobs, feeling sick, tired oh and faint! But if you are at all worried call the midwives hope all is okay xx
I went to a&e when I had spotting at 6 weeks, they were useless and told me there was nothing I could do. When I bled a week ago I rang the maternity unit and they said I couldn't do anything without a referral from my doctor so I know there is no point ringing them again.
The bleeding has started to ease a little now, its just like a light period. No clots or pain. I think if I'm still concerned tomorrow I shall ring my doctors or go into a&e.
I went to A&E and they did a urine test for me. A massive waste of 4+ hours. I could have poas on an Internet cheapie at home. I think ringing your GP and getting a referral from there is the way to go.
