Bleeding in early pregnancy(7 Posts)
I lost my son shortly after bath in July 2018. It's been a long journey to conceive another child, due to severe endometriosis. Finally we tried IVF. Fresh cycle failed last July and we had a frozen embryo transfer last month. To my astonishment, despite spotting for a week before testing, I tested positive at the start of this week.
As the week has gone on, the spotting has restarted. Mostly light brown but occasionally pink. Not much on the panty liner, but quite a bit when I wipe. So I am panicking because I think I have light cramps as well.
However, I have tested again yesterday and my test is very positive. I also feel quite spaced out, bloated and nauseous. These all seem like pregnancy signs, rather than miscarriage signs.
After everything I have been through, I am struggling to deal with my anxiety. I have a scan at 6 weeks to check viability and all the clinic will say is that the bleeding sounds like old stuff and they aren't concerned.
Not sure what advice I want, just venting my fears.
So sorry to hear. I also tested positive on Monday after af was 2 days late. However I started spotting yesterday. Light brown and not too much, only there when I wiped. My heart sank immediately. Went to bed last night and woke up to lots of bleeding and clotting. So it ended in a definite miscarriage. Don’t want to scare you but just sharing my experience. From what I hear, bleeding is 50/50. Could be normal or bad. So don’t rule yourself out yet. I know it’s hard not to but stay positive and wishing you the best 🙏🏽
I had enough bleeding with both my kids to think I wasn’t pregnant and to think it was my period and start using tampons - but both times I was pregnant and have 2 healthy DC. I hope it’s the same for you OP.
Just to update. Bleeding is still coming and going but I had my viability scan on Tuesday and all was well. Baby was bang on the right dates (6 weeks, 3 days) and good heartbeat (120bpm). She couldn't see where the bleeding was coming from. I'm wondering if it could be cervical because I had an ectropion last year, which was cauterised.
I’m 4-5 weeks pregnant and suffering with terrible pains and bleeding, hormone levels are going up, I’ve had a scan and can’t see anything yet as too soon, I’ve got to wait till Thursday for another scan, can’t stop worrying about all this bleeding and pain I’m on codeine to help... anyone else had this before?
@Melturg You might be better making your own thread for advice. I hope everything works out well for you
