Hi all this is my first pregnancy I had 2 positive tests on Sunday and dated it now to be 5weeks + 2days.

I started bleeding yesterday (Thursday) I rang doctors and they said it could be a number of things obviously I'm worried it's a misscarage has anyone had bleeding at this stage and all been ok ? Doctors said they won't scan till 7weeks as you can't normally see anything before then so have told me just to wait and see what happens but that's so hard not knowing ! Any advice or experiences will help thanks all x

Try not to panic, it may well be an implantation bleed, not necessarily a miscarriage. What is the bleeding like, is it light, heavy, dark red, pink..any cramps? You can definitely have an internal scan before 7 weeks so I'm not sure why the gp said that....

Heavy enough to wear pads but not full on I have to change it a lot ! mixture of colours bright red dark red pinky brown ! A few little clots ! It seems lighter this morning then last night ! Had some faint cramps yestutday none today ☹️

Oh bless you. Well you can either call the early pregnancy assessment unit at your local hospital to see if they do walk ins, or contact 111 if you're worried. I really hope it works out for the best for you either way.

Great, hopefully they will refer you to the EPU for a scanflowers

I know how worrying this can be. I have had this with a couple of pregnancies and once it turned out not good news and this time I am 35 weeks pregnant. So it's not always bad news. I had heavy red bleeding for 5 days at 5 weeks and all is well. Unfortunately you won't know either way without a scan which they are right about not being able to tell you much till 7 weeks. However you could request to have your bloods taken to check your hcg levels 48 hours apart and also ask them to refer you to the EPU. Wishing you all the best and be kind thank yourself either way flowers

Georgie it could be a chemical pregnancy. Where you was pregnant but the egg fails to survive for whatever reason which you then pass out naturally as a 'late period'. It's basically a really really early miscarriage but technically isn't classed as one due to nothing being viewable on ultrasound. I've had a few of these. You need to take a pregnancy test, and see if it is still positive or not, if it's not then that's more than likely what it might be. But they won't be able to send you for a scan at this stage as nothing would show up on ultrasound due to being so early on in the pregnancy, that's what they told me when I was going through these. But of course there might not be anything wrong as some women bleed in pregnancy and everything turns out ok, but you won't find out until 7 weeks. So, take a test for now, see what your HGC level is.
