10+5 Bleeding

(10 Posts)

Hi Ladies

I had light pinky discharge this morning, lasted until about midday and then disappeared. Was told by the hospital to wait and if it got worse phone them back.

Had a scan at 8 weeks and everything was progressing normally. Have 1 daughter and a previous MMC.

Is this normal or should I be preparing myself for the worst? Had nothing like this with DD and obviously with the previous miscarriage being missed I'm not sure if this is the beginning.

Didn't want to read and run. Has the bleeding stopped now?

If there has been further bleeding you could go to your local early pregnancy unit or get a private scan if you can afford it.

I hope all is ok

It's stopped but that's done little to reassure me if I'm honest. It was the EPU who said to only phone back if it got worse. DP wants a private scan.

If you are able to afford it then I would go for a private scan, just to help reassure you.

For what it's worth with my miscarriages once I started bleeding I didn't stop and there was pain.

Hey, I hope you're OK. Just wanted to tell you, with my 1st pregnancy I had light bleeding on and off a lot from approximately week 10 - 15. Around week 11/12 it got really heavy (like a very heavy period) and I spent a night in hospital convinced it was all over. But it turned out fine, settled down, I didn't lose the baby, all bleeding stopped by about week 15 and rest of the pregnancy was completely normal & uneventful. 2nd and 3rd pregnancy, no bleeding at all. Never got an explanation of what happened, doctor said it might have been a low placenta moving higher and shedding unnecessary material. No-one really knew. But what I did learn is apparently early bleeding is really really common and very often everything still works out fine. The weird thing is, unless you actually experience this, no-one talks about it much, which makes it particularly worrying when it happens to you. X

Thank you. I'm ok today, bleeding has still stopped. I just hope it's all alright. Thank you for sharing your story. It is reassuring.

I'm 9 weeks pregnant. Went to doctor yesterday and found blood behind baby. Was gushing light pink blood turned to light red now today its dark red and cramping like period cramps. I was put on bed rest until my next appointment next week. I've had a miscarriage before. I also have 3 other children. I'm afraid I'm miscarrying again.... I'm so scared.....

I had bleeding at 15, 19 and 23 weeks. I was terrified at the time but my baby was fine. He's almost 12 weeks old now. My 23 week bleed was terrible and I was in hospital for around a week and given steroids to prepare for him being born early. I had a 9lb 9oz baby boy at 37 weeks. I was told as long as your not filling a pad with bright red blood every 20-30 mins you are usually fine. Hope all settles down for you.
