Bleeding early pregnancy

(20 Posts)

Hi I've just joined mumsnet as I have just found out I'm expecting and I'm roughly 4-5 weeks I have my first midwife appointment on Monday. I've went to the bathroom this evening and I have a light bleed. It's quite pink in colour and I have a little twinge nothing like the cramp I get on my actual period. This is the time I would be due my period, could it be spotting or is this something I need to get checked before the midwife on Monday.

I'm kind of freaking out the now! Xxx

I'm 7 weeks today and had some light sporting around 2 nights ago. I haven't worried myself too much about it because I had it with my DS. I've got a scan next week to make sure everything is ok. Light bleeding is somewhat normal. I've have 2 MC and both times it was a lot of blood. If you are worried you could give your early pregnancy unit a call. They can make sure everything is ok x

Thanks I'll maybe give them a call, had MC last year and it was horrendous. I think it's that causing me to panic. Xx

No doubt about it. I won't lie. When I first saw the spotting this time around, I did go into a massive panic. Tears and all. Then my husband reminded me about the spotting with my son and how the bleeding was a lot different with the miscarriages. I calmed down a lot. Deffo give them a call just for peace of mind. Hope all goes well x

I agree with everyone else; I was sent to the EPU at 5 weeks by my GP after some light spotting and everything was fine (14w now.)

It was worth it to put my mind at rest though.

Hoping everything goes well for you.

I had spotting from 6-10 weeks with DS1 and had it once with DS2. Had scans at EPU to check with both and it was all fine.

You need to get it checked ASAP, even though it is probably fine. I had bleeding like that on and off up to 17 weeks!

I had lots of brown blood when I was pregnant, it was really scary and I remember I had it for a while and everything was OK he's 18 now!

Called nhs24 our closest hospital has been affected by this hack thing which is a nightmare. It's lightened up now but will still go to an appointment when they call back. My partners trying to keep me calm but when I'm freaking out I'm on the ceiling.

Luckily my mums friend is a midwife and only a Facebook message away but will be glad to be seen just to get some piece of mind.xx

Stupid hackers! What they're doing is a nightmare. I hope you get seen too try not to stress x

Hi I hope you are ok.
I am 12 weeks and have had brown, punk,orange and red spotting , bleeding and discharges since 5 weeks. I've had 2 scans at epu. First an internal, everything was fine. When the bleeding turned red I assumed the worst. I got a second scan and it was caused by a hematoma, basically bruising.
I was told at 5 weeks the spotting was caused by implantation.
And a hematoma at 10weeks.

I am.still wiping brown on and off succesful 12 weeks scan and they can now see no reason for it.
Its so stressful.
I am with you on that. But I reckon you will be ok. Keep calm xxx

Good morning, thought I'd update. Unfortunately this time it was not to be and my wee baby has gone. Not had much sleep and now in a considerable amount of pain.. feet up and to for daddy and I. My poor man's heartbroken, no idea what's worse the way it I feel or looking at his face. I feel so silly only finding out yesterday and being so upset but this was my baby. Time for us to heal. Thanks for kind words and advice xx sad

I'm so sorry Dawn. You aren't silly at all. Look after yourself. flowers

user1494667987 Sun 14-May-17 07:01:34

I'm so so sorry Dawn. Don't ever think your devastation is silly.... 1 day, 1 week, 1month, 3months+ whatever, it's still the same rush of hope, love, expectation, magical excitement from the moment you get that positive test. Be kind to yourselves, grieve as you need to and I really hope that awful pain passes soon x

Hannano1990 Sun 14-May-17 08:34:37

I'm so sorry. My thoughts are with you both xx

Tattybogle89 Sun 14-May-17 08:39:13

Oh no dawn thats awful I'm so sorry. I really hoped it would go the other way for you. Be kind to yourself xx

AllGone Sun 14-May-17 08:54:00

So sorry to hear this.

sonlypuppyfat Sun 14-May-17 09:57:09

I'm so very sorry

mintich Sun 14-May-17 10:48:57

I lost my first pregnancy at 5 weeks. I was upset for weeks and even now 3 years on I'll sometimes think of that baby and feel sad. Don't feel silly
