So frightened of miscarriage

Morning girls, I'm not too sure what's happening with me 😞
Yesterday when I went to the loo I noticed brown blood on the tissue. This continued throughout the day. Last night when I had a wee a clot came out, (it was quite dark (so sorry for TMI) long and thin, about 2 cm in length, but had a slight red tinge around the edges. I was so worried I phoned my friend who is a midwife. She has advised me to call the doctor this morning who will hopefully refer me to the EPU for an internal scan today.
I've hardly slept through the night as I've wanted this for so long and feel devastated at the thought of losing my little bean.
I did a pregnancy text this morning and there is still a strong line so that gives me hope. Just had a wee and there is still a brown mark when I wipe but it's only even been on the tissue never heavy enough to stain my knickers.
Sorry for the long post! I'm just hoping someone else maybe had something similar and it turned out ok.
The brown blood doesn't bother me too much as I know that can happen it's the clot I'm worrying about.
Trying to keep positive with the thought 'today I am pregnant' x

When is your scan? How are you doing?

It's so difficult to know if it's a mc or not as many people bleed throughout their pregnancy and many do not.

Hi Gingerhannah, I went to the doctor today and she's referred me to the early pregnancy unit for Monday for an early scan. Fingers crossed everything will show ok x

GingerHanna Thu 04-May-17 17:35:03

Fingers crossed for you... I'm sure you know already but try and keep busy so you don't fret so much. Easier said than done I know!

If it helps make you feel a little less worried, I bled for 12 weeks of my first pregnancy and had lumps like the lining of my womb I was so scared. I now have a very healthy 2yr old. It doesn't always mean the worst. Good luck with your early scan.

Thank you both, mustang it's so good to read that and def reassuring. I just had another two clots but still not bleeding so I'm clinging onto it just being one of those strange things. The doctor said if I started bleeding then that would be a worry. As I'm not, I'm keeping all my fingers (and toes) crossed x

How have you been feeling today?

MummyM33 Fri 05-May-17 18:11:52

Hi, I'm feeling much better about things. No more clots which I'm so happy about. Just keeping positive until the scan on Monday. I had such sharp shooting pains in my boobs this morning so I'm hoping that's a symptom that things are still good. Thank you so much for asking x

If you have bleeding early pregnancy you should be able to get a scan from the early pregnancy unit (emergency gynecology unit) immediately. It's 24 hours a day. Don't wait til Monday! X

MummyM33 Fri 05-May-17 18:44:36

Thanks MissBax, that's where I'm going Monday. When I was with my doctor yesterday she said she could send me then but it's likely they won't see much so I'll need another scan, where as if I wait till Monday there will be a chance of a heartbeat showing as I'll be 6 weeks. There's nothing I can do apart from rest and hope until then really x

MissBax Fri 05-May-17 18:52:14

Ahh ok, I'd personally not be able to rest if I could go sooner but if you're happy to wait that's fine too smile x

MummyM33 Fri 05-May-17 19:18:46

I know what you mean but I was thinking well seeing nothing there might make me panic more so at the moment I'm just thinking its all ok smile x

MissBax Fri 05-May-17 19:31:47

Good idea, I hadn't thought about that actually, it could cause way more anxiety! Good luck for Monday smile x

Mustang27 Fri 05-May-17 21:40:09

Oh god I never get sore boobs except during pregnancy, they become so sensitive.

It does sound like a good sign and no more blood or clots is brilliant. I literally can't wait until Monday for you x

Hey! My sister bled in her pregnancy with her first and second at around 16 weeks, and bled for a week or so (like a very light period) and both babies born healthy and pretty much on time, 2nd was a monkey and a week late! They couldn't find a cause for it but bought her in every few weeks up to popping for check up scans. Sometimes it happens so try not to stress, I know it's only natural to stress but these things happen sometimes with no explanation. Hopefully it gets sorted for you Hun. ❤️

MummyM33 Fri 05-May-17 22:57:31

Thank you girls, I've never used mumsnet before this pregnancy and I'm overwhelmed how kind everyone is. Thank you so much for the support and reassurance x

Dont wanna dishearten you but frim my experience when you have a m/c pg rest still shows you are pg till everything is out.from my past m/cs now My midwife send me on a early scan but i was only 5weeks & 3 days so they didnt see much just a yolk so im back for my scan on wed. Fingers cross. Stay positive & let us knw how it went on mon. Good luck hun x

Mustang27 Mon 08-May-17 15:10:50

Good luck today. Sorry it's so late on already but it's been a bit mad here. Hope it all goes ok with the scan. Hugs x

MummyM33 Mon 08-May-17 20:31:15

Thank you so much for thinking of me.
It went amazing smile baby is still in there with a strong heart beat!
At first they did an external ultrasound scan and confirmed they could see a sac and a yolk but wanted to do an internal to be certain everything was ok. I then had an internal which wasn't as bad as I imagined and she showed me the tiny dot which is baby with a good strong heartbeat flickering away on the screen.
I could have burst into tears I was so relieved! Just need to get through the next 6 weeks with no bleeding to my 12 week scan x

ew1990 Mon 08-May-17 20:34:50

@MummyM33 I had pain at 6 weeks, scan at EPU same as you blob with heartbeat, had the same as you too at ten week brown blood and a little bit of pink, another scan and shown a little baby kicking about, just had my official scan at 12 and half weeks and lovely baby wriggling about, I know it's hard as I still get terrified at the slightest twinge but try not to worry for the next 6 weeks 😊 it will soon be here x

MummyM33 Mon 08-May-17 20:52:06

Thanks ew1990, I love reading stories like yours as they give me so much reassurance. I've wanted this baby for so long I'm just so nervous. Wish I could wake up tomorrow and be at 12 weeks already!!
So so pleased your 12 week scan went well! x

MummyM33 Mon 08-May-17 20:57:36

Ew1990 I've just read your posts about awful morning sickness on another thread I'm following. You poor thing, I hope you feel better soon! x

ew1990 Mon 08-May-17 21:50:03

@MummyM33 thank you! Think it was dehydration coz of the awful headache too, I was so lucky not had any sickness apart from once until now xx join our thread it's a good one everyone's so supportive x

Mustang27 Mon 08-May-17 22:15:16

Yaaaaay I'm so happy!!! Iv honestly been worrying sick about you. Pregnant ladies are crazy you know lol. I'm so relieved it all went so well and wasn't as horrible as you had imagined. Try not to worry to much as I said before I bled right up until my 12 weeks and it was all fine in the end. If you are feeling ok and you are up for it you should treat yourself in some way, you deserve it.

@MummyM33 brilliant news. This gives me hope, my scan is tomorrow morning... 6weeks 6days from LMP. X
