Hi all

Seems like I'm constantly posting on here at the minute!!

So I'm just over 7 weeks pregnant had a scan last Friday due to cysts on my ovaries saw baby and heartbeat.

Yesterday went to the toilet and had a heavy dark red stringy bleed, so went straight up to the hospital where I had a urine sample and blood tests done.

The doctor asked questions and felt belly and said she wasn't concerned as I'm not really having pain and because I had scan the previous week showing everything was fine.

We have a scan booked for Tuesday to check but she just dismissed the thought of miscarriage!! My head is all over the place as I've woken up today with no more bleeding so I feel like it's over and done with?!

I just do not know what to think sad

Hi. I'd see how you go but if any more bleeding then get checked again. Some bleeding is fine but if it is really heavy then please don't wait for your scan. X

It's really strange still no bleeding and still feeling very sicky etc!!
Had slight cramps but nothing major x

Bleeding at 6 or 7 weeks is quite common, apparently. I bled at 6 weeks with both my pregnancies - unfortunately I did lose one but it was much later and unrelated. The other is currently 10 years old and eating jelly beans in the other room. It's normal to worry, but trust your MW.

I had no bleeding in my first pregnancy but am 10 weeks with number 2 - had one incident of fairly heavy blood followed by 2 and a half weeks of bloody spotting, even some tiny clots - everything is fine smile

I too was a bit miffed that no one (GP, sonographer, urgent care) seemed that concerned about the bleeding - so maybe it really is more common that most think.

If you have seen a heartbeat and are having no painful cramping then it should all be fine. Breakthrough bleeding is common and apparently implantation can go on for weeks! Good luck flowers

So sorry you are going through this. I had bleeding and spotting from 6.5 weeks through first trimester and into the second. In my case it was a subchorionic haematoma and all turned out fine with the baby, who is now 3. SCH affects around 1 in 100 pregnancies I think, so is quite a common cause of first trimester bleeding which doesn't necessarily mean MC. Stay Dr Google and try to distract yourself as best you can to keep sane until your scan on Tuesday. Fingers crossed.

I've had bleeding at that stage in both successful pregnancies (and not the one that miscarried). No point in HCPs getting too worked up about it because there's nothing they can do.

Just need to wait it out I'm afraid. Nothing else you can do. The one and only time I've had bleeding in pregnancy it was a mc (8 weeks) but I've had friends who've bled on and off and gone on to deliver healthy babies

*stay away from Dr Google

Hopefully just implantation bleeding. All the best for Tuesday x

I had bleeding like you describe throughout the first trimester and all was ok.. so worrying though at the time.

So I bled again during the night not a lot woke up this morning and it's brown?!

Heads all over!

Brown blood is usually considered to be old, so less of a concern. Just hang on in there.
