8 weeks and bleeding

So, I'm stuck miles from home with DD10 at a dance competition in Wales. Just been the loo and I've started bleeding, not heavy and I've got no pains or anything!

Please someone tell me I'm gonna be alright? 2nd baby and I'm 8 weeks! Feel like crying but obviously can't in a room full of hundreds of Morris Dancers!

Oh bless try not to worry could be loads of things and it's good it's not heavy and no pain. Can you put a pad on and monitor the bleeding and call EPU or gynae out of hours tonight when you can and maybe get checked tomo? I had bleeding weeks 6-8 and it was heavy at times too. Bleeding is common in early pregnancy but you should get it checked x

Nb there's not much hospital can do anyway so don't worry about being miles away, for me they did a scan to see if there was a heartbeat to reassure me. There was so, rather than do bloods to check hcg was rising, they were content. I was still bleeding and it got heavier, but they said there's nothing they could do but wait a week and scan again to see if growth as no point doing before then. they found cause of bleeding on scan - haematoma from digging in at implantation so they said I should expect bleeding and only to worry if pain. Fingers crossed.

Thanks just panicking as I don't really know anyone here! DD usually comes with her friends and I just came today because it's a big comp! Just can't wait to get home now!

Ah ok. There's a really good women's hospital / maternity hospital there isn't there? Could you call your early pregnancy unit tomorrow? How's bleeding now?

Still bleeding, only when wiping. Normal cramps, nothing too painful. Rang EPU when I got home who have advised I keep an eye on it tonight and go in in the morning. Just hope I get some sleep.

Only when wiping sounds good. Ugh these things are sent to try us - hot choc and bed? brew

Just been to the EPU, they did a pg test which was positive and looked at my cervix. Dr said it is closed and no active bleeding, been booked in for a vag scan on Wednesday. Staying positive smile

Hope you are ok. My bleeding in first trimester turned out to be a hematoma, little pool of blood around baby. They told me only when wiping was a good sign.. Wishing you well x

Just a little update... I had a scan today and baby is fine! Nice little heartbeat! Thank you all for your kind words xx

@dddddddddd glad to hear it! I'm spotting today...
Are you still spotting? Did they tell you what was causing it?

Good luck- heartbeat at 8 weeks is a good sign x

So happy for you smile

Fantastic. Chance of miscarriage after seeing heartbeat is very slim! Enjoy your pregnancy x
