Hi all I'm after some advice. My daughter has recently discovered she is pregnant (she will be 7 weeks on Sat according to her last period) and is due back from Romania this weekend. This morning she messaged me in a panic as she was bleeding so had to go to a hospital in Romania where they did a scan and saw a heartbeat but said it was very small.
They gave her some tablets to take which are no-spa (anti spasmodics) progesterone tablets (duphaston) and some vitamins.
Should we be worried?!! She couldn't get much out of them due to the language barrier unfortunately.
Thanks Snowy - it sounds like they are trying to prevent a miscarriage when I have researched the tablets she has been given, so I have warned her this might not be the end of it. But - I bled all the way through being pregnant with her as I had a low lying placenta. Was really difficult this morning when she was on the phone breaking her heart and I couldnt do anything
I had a miscarriage in Tunisia without any medical care. The best thing she could do is get ready with some heavy duty san pro and painkillers just in case. I also carried a plastic bag to sit on on the plane.
Oh bless her. May be worth a trip to EPU when she gets back. Is she taking folic acid? Unfortunately there is nothing they can do at this stage so it's actually v positive they've seen a heartbeat and embryo, even if it is small. She might just be one of those women prone to bleeding, especially if you were?
Is she bleeding a lot? Is it brown or red blood? I am on duphaston too as I’ve been bleeding a bit with brown blood, it helped to stop the bleeding, unfortunately when I try to come off duphaston I start to bleed again. Had a scan yesterday, everything is good, heartbeat, I am 10 weeks. Duphaston can help and no-spa is good to help to stop cramps.
I did the same to my poor mum when I started bleeding at 9 weeks in Miami. Was convinced I'd miscarried. Wore massive pads and cried on the flight home. Then went to EPU to find out everything was fine and there were two babies! I had a load more bleeding up to week 15 which was awful but then it stopped and had no more to date (currently 24 weeks and both babies are growing well and the bleed has been absorbed).
