Spotting 8 weeks

(5 Posts)

Hey guys
Can anyone offer any advice please?
Went to the toliet earlier and I had some blood when I wiped, it was only a little and looked very washed out but nether the less it was blood, I had some slight cramping over the weekend which I finally accepted as being normal as being told his by my doctor and my mum. But now mixed with the blood I am so worried. I managed to get a scan for tomorrow in the EPU but I really scared now. I have also convinced myself that I don't have as many symptoms as I normally do 😔 Help!!!

Hi, I had a couple of bleeds at 5 weeks one light and one heavy (clots the lot!) I got a scan at 5 weeks and had 2 sacs one with yolk sac and one empty. Went back at 8 weeks and had one baby with strong heart beat. I've not bled since and am about 12 weeks now. I had a scan the other day due to something else and the midwife said I had s small bleed next to the sac but she sees it in 90% of pregnancy. Also I'm A- blood type so she said between the bleed and my blood type I'll prob bleed again but it shouldn't be anything to worry about.

Anyway what I'm trying to say is there's many reasons why you can bleed and it can turn out alright. It's good you've got scan tomorrow, I won't tell you not to worry (I've had 4 scans already before my 12 weeks scan) just try and keep busy today and do something that'll tire you out before you go to bed so you'll sleep!! Good luck and hope everything goes ok.

I had a few days of spotting with my first, went to the dr and turned out to be bedding in, had a healthy baby boy.

Could be implantation bleeding - I had it with dc3. Cramping too.

Thank you for your replies

I have got some cramping tonight as well had its few times over the weekend but my mum said it was normal cause everything is changing and explanding but having the bleed this morning has really made me worry 😔 I guess I will have to wait for the scan tomorrow
