You should also on your notes have the hospitals maternity wing, phone them and explain and try not to worry, which I know is very difficult.

I second the pp of trying not to worry. I had bleeding through out my pregnancy, and was always told to go maternity unit for monitoring. They would do an internal. Check babies heart beat etc. Ds is nearly 2 now and fine, but it's a worry at the time.

Keep trying the mat unit, and get yourself ready to pop down there. Hope it all goes ok smile

Iv spoken to them and they've told me to call the day assessment unit at 8 to be seen hmm my dp is quite far from me at his mothers ill and I'm with my family. Thanks for your replies ladies but as you know I'm worrying soooooooo much and can't stop hmm

If I were you I would get myself ready to pop to the ante natal clinic for a check up once you've spoken to the assessment unit - from my experience the waits can be very long unless you arrive first thing in the morning (i.e. the last thing that you want if you are very worried). I know it's easier said than done however do try not to panic - i had sudden bleeding at EXACTLY the same stage and it turned out to be cervical ectropian which is nothing to worry about at all. Big hugs and thinking of you x

Hey guys, thank you sooo much for all your advice. Turns out it's just a cervical ectropion but tiny tiny! The dr said there is still risk of mc but it's rare and if I get anymore blood to do exactly what I did today! Because of mc last yr I'm super aware and it's driving me crazy! Did u get anymore blood, extra care, any more trouble? How far along are you now? xxx

Ahh I'm pleased your ok, I have been wondering about you today.

I had bleeding on many occasions - maybe once a month ish, and I got a bit blasé towards the end if I'm honest. They would do an internal, check babies heart rate and send me on my way. I had had cancerous cells removed just before I became pregnant though so I was susceptible to bleeding because of that.

I hope you have no more trouble, but try not to worry if you do smile
