Hi geology, there's no way to say really. I had similar (about 11 weeks) and sadly it was a missed miscarriage for me, however many people have some sort of bleeding in early pregnancy and are fine, I fact I think statistically it's more often fine than it is a miscarriage. Was it just a one off or has there been anymore since? If I were you I'd call the midwife/epu for advice, it's probably nothing but a quick scan could put your mind at rest x
I think 8 weeks is a pretty common time for some normal blood from what I've heard. For me it was just some brown bloody mucus initially, a very small amount but it did keep coming and going over the next couple of days and I had that 'heavy' sort of aching feeling you get before a period. I think if you aren't having any cramping or discomfort then it's a good sign and for most people a small bleed is not neccesarily bad news. Worth getting checked to put your mind at rest though, good luck x
I'm 14 weeks and been spotting on and off to varying degrees throughout so far. I did a little with DC1 too. The worst it's been was bright red lke the start of a period. I put it down to one or a combo of: thrush/cervical changes/extra blood volume meaning capillaries can burst/my generally crappy vagina, rather than anything to do with the womb.
Can you get a scan? I had private scans at 7 and 8 weeks and midwife referred me to EPU at 9 weeks. All fine, 12 week scan fine too. When I had DC1, that EPU was walk-in, maybe yours is?
It's common to bleed in early pregnancy, many women even have a Subchorionic Haematoma. My friend has PCOS and bled heavily throughout her whole pregnancy, her kid is fine!
It's so hard not to worry though and I'd definitely talk to your midwife (if you have one yet, i couldn't book in til 9 weeks, ugh!)
In this pregnancy my early symptoms came and went for days at a time, I'm 34 weeks now so it didn't mean anything. Actually in the pregnancy I miscarried symptoms were more consistent if anything! It doesn't mean anything so try not to worry. After seeing a heartbeat at 10 weeks your odds of a continuing pregnancy are something like 90%
