Hello, I'm about 7 weeks and bleeding, I had two previous mmc so unlike this one, can anyone tell me what to expect? Can see doctor until Tuesday and just feel really anxious sad

Jollyb Tue 25-Jun-13 15:43:45

So sorry PurpleFrog. Look after yourself x

monikar Tue 25-Jun-13 12:00:50

I'm really so very sorry to hear this.


LST Tue 25-Jun-13 11:30:47

Oh purple I am so sorry sad

Purplefrogshoe Tue 25-Jun-13 10:44:12

Bad news, sac has doubled in size but no baby, they wont confirm miscarriage until they scan me again next week but they are 99.9% sure

MrsVDB Tue 25-Jun-13 10:12:34

Good luck, I'm sure it will be fine smile

Purplefrogshoe Tue 25-Jun-13 10:06:52

Waiting at epu for scan, feeling terrified sad

Purplefrogshoe Tue 18-Jun-13 22:59:57

Thanks, that's good news LST, fingers crossed for you cremola too, thanks everyone has made me feel very hopeful ;) xx

I started browish spotting last Sunday op and some blood. But I had a scan on Thursday and there was a hb smile The browish discahrge is only just starting to clear up. Hopefully it will go away completely. Fingers crossed op x

I'm in the same situation too, so you've got all my sympathy. Am thinking of you and hope all goes well on the 25th.

I had the same thing (bleeding from a haematoma) - began at 5/6 weeks and continued for a few weeks, lost some quite big blood clots, but all was/is absolutely fine. I hope your scan on the 25th is positive too X

Purplefrogshoe Tue 18-Jun-13 10:57:02

Its making me feel more hopeful, thanks so much and congratulations to all, LST the waiting is the worst sad hope you get good news. im trying to carry on as normal but even short walks are making the bleeding really heavy so having a rest today xx

Glad they managed to see you and others have said I think it's encouraging that they saw a source of the bleed. As I said in an earlier post I bled with this pregnancy at 6 and 10 weeks and they identified a small haematoma on my scan. It had resolved by 12 weeks. It's amazing how much you can bleed and all be ok.

Hope the week doesn't 't pass too slowly

I'm 15+4 now, but started bleeding at about 8 weeks from. Large haematoma, bled until about 13 weeks and on last scan the haematoma was tiny. It was really frightening though, every time I bled I thought that was it! Hope all goes well, I know it's easier said than done but try not to obsess until the next scan, I tried to put it out of my mind as otherwise I would've gone mad, and worrying wont change the outcome x

LST Mon 17-Jun-13 18:05:44

Glad your feeling a little better op. I'm going through the same thing as we speak. The waiting is a killer.

Purplefrogshoe Mon 17-Jun-13 15:45:20

Thanks, I'm going to try and keep busy as its a long wait till till next Tuesday and I don't want to drive myself mad smile

I also was only 5 weeks when the bleeding started. Waiting for the second scan was rubbish. Will be thinking of you! flowers

If the bleeding is coming from a haemotoma then that means that so far things are OK.

I had a haemotoma with DD who is now 2. Got lots of contradictory advice regarding whether I should rest or continue normal activity but in any case I carried on as normal and walked very long distances on holiday and it was all fine. The haemotoma had been reabsorbed by the end of the first trimester, and by all accounts it had initially been very large.

As far as I know the miscarriage rate for pregnancies with haemotoma is not significantly different to normal pregnancies. The risk of placenta praevia is increased though so they'll keep an eye out towards the end of the pregnancy. I still checked for blood compulsively until DD was born though. It's so hard not to!

Fingers crossed for you.

Doh, sorry for double post!

jessw25 Mon 17-Jun-13 13:47:45

So glad that they're looking after you purple and rescanning in a week. It'll be an anxious wait but hopefully slightly less anxious than before. Hang in there.

Keep us posted x

Yes hopefully should see heartbeat on 25, still anxious but hopefull smile x

jessw25 Mon 17-Jun-13 11:46:37

Oh I'm so glad that's reassured you :-) It's so hard when you've had a loss previously isn't it (I was the same). It's really good that the scan showed that the sac looks good at this stage and they gave you an explanation for the bleeding. Is your appointment on 25th another scan to check progress? x

Purplefrogshoe Mon 17-Jun-13 11:09:44

Had scan they reckon im more 5/6 weeks, sac looks good she thinks but too early to see anything else so to go bk on 25. Bleeding is coming from a haematoma(sorry if mispelt) not the sac so she says i will still bleed. Feeling slightly more hopeful

Purplefrogshoe Mon 17-Jun-13 10:24:12

Thanks, fingers crossed, the waiting is the worst sad

Liveinthepresent Mon 17-Jun-13 10:16:27
