Ladies, looking for people who have been in similar situations to me and what has been the outcome. Right now, it's not looking positive but I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

I've been bleeding on and off for around a week now, I'm just under 7 weeks pregnant. Before I fell pregnant, I had REALLY light periods anyways, but what I'm experiencing is basically like I'm having a period. I tested again, and still a very strong BFP. Yesterday my nausea came back with vengeance after not having it for over a week, and I had quite sharp shooting pain in my stomach on the left hand side particularly. I have phoned GP twice, they don't seem concerned. I was told to phone the EPU today, and again, they were also not concerned and said what I am describing is not an emergency, even though OH and Mum feel it is and I should be checked out.

I have a photo of the blood I'm getting on toilet paper when wiping, but I don't want to post it as I feel that is a bit TMI - I took it in case the doctors / midwife ask to see.

Anyways, has anyone else experienced this? Could do with some positivity if there is anyone who experienced the same thing as me..

It could be a hematoma which is kind of like a bruise in your womb which causes bleeding, I had it but my bleeding was very pink and lasted a day.

But some people can have it heavy and almost like a period, my sister did and her baby was fine he's now a 3 year old toddler!

Your best bet is to get it checked though, as if it is a hematoma it can happen for a period of time and they'll be able to see how big/small it is.

Fingers crossed for you xx

Thank you @MissSophieB397 - unfortunately I've made two calls to GP and the EPU and they say that it's nothing near classed as emergency and don't want to see me... so I feel like I can't get it checked, as that's what I'd like to do xx

@nicannie maybe advise and state you are extremely worried as feel like something isn't right and would like a scan. If they still refuse then go to your local GP xx

@MissSophieB397 It's my local GP who has palmed me off twice this week and the EPU once this week... I feel like I can't phone either again or they are just going to think I'm a pest! I think I'll leave it until another week or so and see what happens, just hope it doesn't get any worse or of course I'll give them another phone as I won't have a choice xx

Hi, I had this problem at around 9 weeks pregnant - one night I was relaxing on sofa, when all of a sudden I thought I was peeing myself - I ran to the toilet to find blood pouring out of me. Called 111 who sent non- urgent ambulance - sent to a&e, then to woman’s unit. They did internal, said my cervix were closed (good thing) sent me home with appointment for epu in morning for a scan to check heart beat! Any way all was fine. And this kept happening till I was at least 16/18 weeks. I know they say not to worry but it’s so hard. Just try and think realistically actually how much blood you are losing, look out for other signs, such as cramps, faint, temperature, sweating. I think if this keeps happening, go to hospital as non urgent, and demand someone looks at you, you need the reassurance. I’m 24 weeks now, so please try and be positive 😊 all the best xx

Hi @nicannie, how are you getting on?

I am nearly 7 weeks now and earlier this week had a bit of bleeding. I posted on here too and had some lovely reassurances - the thread is just here if you want to look (be warned, I did post a pic which I realise is a bit TMI!)
I had a more significant bleed the day after the picture was taken, but nothing in the 4 days since. EPU weren't very interested in my case either, and said that up to half of women experience bleeding in the first trimester (though this is more than what I've read online).

Wishing you all the best x

Thanks @kirsty8686 and @QueenOfThePumpkins - the bleeding lasted a week... now dried up so feeling a bit better. It did start a little again last night but only once.

I'm going to read your thread now just to see some replies as mines didn't get that many! Thank you

nicannie Sun 21-Jul-19 10:46:43

@QueenOfThePumpkins my bleeding was a lot more than that and for a full week 😞😞

MissPollyHadADolly19 Sun 21-Jul-19 10:49:02

I had this on and off from around 8 weeks to 14weeks. No rhyme or reason for bleeding, currently 34wks pregnant so it must of just been one of those things I guess.
Try not to worry too much OP x

If there's no cramping pains then it probably Ok.I had this week7-15 on and off.I had CVS at 12 weeks so knew I had had a twin pregnancy but one failed and the bleeding was from there.
DD is 16.

nicannie Sun 21-Jul-19 11:14:40

Thanks both. There has been some cramping but nothing extreme. One evening I had sharp shooting pains in my left side of my stomach. The following morning had similar pains in my right. Nothing since then.

Did a quick pregnancy test yday and still strong positive. Also still have all the symptoms I've been having, nausea really bad, sore boobs, etc etc so just going to monitor it and stay positive thanks ladies

QueenOfThePumpkins Sun 21-Jul-19 11:21:24

@nicannie the second day it was pretty much period-like, completely red and with clots. It sounds like several other people on my thread had a lot of bleeding and it worked out for them smile

It is very promising that you are still getting a strong positive and the symptoms, and I'm glad the bleeding and cramping has stopped for you. Take care flowers

I bled for two weeks straight 6-8 weeks and spots randomly right up to 20weeks. It was a mixture of an irritable cervix and thrush (discovered by fluke as no one would do an internal examination and google suggested it) DS is now 4 months old and farting away infront of me grin.

My epu was a mix of shit and fantastic scanned at 6-3 n he was a health little bean so told not to worry, bleeding worsened at 7weeks and didn’t stop till 8 during that time I’d phoned back told they’d scanned me I was fine just wait and sent to a&e who took a pregnancy test and then told me even if I was m/c it’d still be positive for a bit anyway. My own midwife actually recommended a private scan company if I wanted the reassurance if I couldn’t be seen.

Go to A&E and explain how worried you are and that you want a scan.
