Heavy bleeding 7 weeks - any hope

This evening had some heavy bright red bleeding, quite a lot (TMI but dripping into the toilet). Went to A&E as advised by 111 and the bleeding slowed over the next hour and now seems to have stopped. I'm booked in for a scan at EPU on Tuesday. I've had no cramping but have been told to prepare for the worst.

Has anyone had similar and gone on to have a healthy pregnancy. Or has anyone has similar and it gone on to be a miscarriage? Thanks

You must feel really worried. I had similar with my DD (now 5!) at 6 weeks pregnant, I had bright red blood that was very heavy to start and then slowed down over 2 days. I had to wait for 2 days for an early pregnancy scan and was convinced I had miscarried. However, there was my tiny little dot on the screen. I hope that doesn't sound too blasé but just so you know that it did work out very well for me and I'm really hoping the same will happen for you. As hard as it is, try to relax as much as possible x

I bled really heavily with my second and third pregnancies. It happened quite early both times and I continued to bleed every 6 weeks or so. I had to have a scan every time but both pregnancies were fine. It was awful each time though as you can't help fearing the worst. I really hope it will be the same for you.

Thanks for your replies. There was no more bleeding overnight so maybe it's not the end but will have to wait and see - wish i could be scanned today so I knew one way or the other

I posted here recently about my terrifying bleedy pregnancy. DS4 is now 9 weeks, feeding away here on me and is utterly perfect.

I have everything crossed for you, but as scary as it seems (I bled buckets), it doesn't necessarily mean the end.

@BergamotMouse how have you been? Any more bleeding xx

I had the same, a few weeks later than you, but bright red blood, big gush to start and went through 2 pads in 2 hours. All fine. Said it was just the cervix softening and changing. They said it was quite common. I too went to A&E. They checked my hcg levels which indicated I was still pregnant and therefore not a miscarriage (as unfortunately, a miscarriage would show no or low hcg levels by the time bleeding started). I still had a scan a week later and saw baby all fine. Best of luck, fingers crossed.

I had really heavy bleeds at 9+3 and 11+3. Scans both times showed babies were fine. Small bleeds since but babies are still fine. I'm 15+4.

Nurse at EPU reassured me that if there's no pain it's probably fine as miscarriages hurt. I know that's not 100% true but it generally is and I never had any pain.

Not good news. Scan showed blood filled sac. I don't think the actual miscarriage process has started. I just want it over with so I'm going for surgery tomorrow. Thanks for all your replies.
