I had a mmc at 12 weeks last pregnancy. Then an early bleed this one - at a scan at 6 weeks they saw two babies but only one had a heartbeat and 10 days after there was only one baby. At my 12 week scan the baby was fine. But last night I had a huge bleed and passed clots because I was 19+6 and not 20 weeks I had to wait 3 hours in a and e - was sent to gynae ward and had a check up - they said my cervix closed but try couldn't scan me. So today I have a scan at 4.00 and am sat waiting, petrified and hoping my baby is ok. Also scared as they couldn't do Nuchal fold at 12 weeks as baby was moving round so that's on my mind too. sad

Big hugs. Didn't want to read and run. I'm positive you and bubba will fine. Sending massive positive thoughts your way.

Hope everything is fine, I'm sure it will be, but I know it's nerve wracking. Is there someone who can keep you company to take your mind off it? Also sending lots of positive thoughts your way x

Sending lots of love and prayers your way. I am no expert so I can't offer much but my mum had lots of bleeds with me, and was very high risk yet I was born perfectly healthy and full term. Try not to worry as its no good for you, silly thing to say as I know you can't help it but just take your mind off things best you can. Good luck xx

sad I can understand why you are so scared.
Any chance the bleed may have been late from baby 1?
I really have nothing that can soothe you here as I would be terrified too.
Please keep us updated.
Hugs and best wishes to you xx

Thanks for all your kind words. They haven't given me any explanation for bleed as they can't until scan. Keeping everything crossed x

Oh mummytobe, you must be so frightened.

I will be thinking of you at 4:00 in your scan.

Do you have anyone to go with you?

Handholding mummy. The hours until 4 must be passing like days xx

Yes DP is coming with me - I thought it was important for him to go to work today and try and keep things normal. He's been amazing support. 4.00 still seems ages away. X

All was fine - wriggling about and waving. All measurements and heartbeat were fab! Never been so happy and relieved. Going back for a check up weds. Thanks for all of the support. This pregnancy is a rocky road! Hopefully we will sleep tonight!!! X

Fantastic news! How cute that the baby was waving smile Maybe he/she was waving at you to say "all ok in here mummy, see you in 20 weeks!"
