I woke up this morning, went to the loo, and noticed a slight bleed, bright red. Also have slight period-type pains. So hoping it doesn't spell disaster.

I've made an appt with the doctor for 9.50 but have come on here to try to put my mind at rest. sad

You poor thing, I hope everything is ok for you. Would the doctor refer you to the EPU?

Sometimes a bleed is just your body's way of telling you to slow down. Have you been busy in the past few days?

Thanks 5inthebed: not sure what the doctor will do tbh - it's at a big medical centre so I think they have scanning equipment (it's also where I see the midwife).

Hmm, not that busy, I don't think - on the other hand DD kept me awake much of the night before last, which wasn't much fun.

Well hopefully they will scan you there. My GP surgery is useless, they don't even have a proper set of scales.

That could possibly be why then. Fingers crossed everything is ok for you.

Oh no. Try not to panic but i know how scary it is. Hope they scan you today and all is well. I think once you see blood you automatically start thinking you have pain too (or is that just me?!) So hopefully everything will be fine for you. Good luck.

Thanks maybebaby!
It is scary: it's one of those things where you didn't realise quite how attached you were until it happened.
I had thought that I was managing to remain reasonably detached until the nuchal fold scan, just in case hat brought bad news. Obviously not quite as detached as I'd thought.

OK, well things aren't looking good.

The doctor could, in fact, only make an appt for me at the EPU - and the first one they had was Friday. She said not to worry yet, as long as the bleed was light.

Well, then I went into town to pick up a couple of things and by the time I got home, I could tell the bleed was no longer light: it's heavy.

I guess I'll head into A&E this afternoon, but would like to wait for my husband to get home first.

Oh no im so so sorry. Big hugs for you, not that they would do any good. Really sorry for you, take good care of yourself.

Really sorry MockDuck. I hope it isn't all bad news. Will be thinking of you.

Im new to all of this and id really appreciate some advice. I am 11 weeks and scan due next Weds.

Last night I had some funny colour mucus dark browny colour and i got worried, then I had pinkish red stuff on and off all day today and last night. Just now I thought it had stopped and found some more, this time with a small clot. Im absolutely terrified.


I phoned midwife this morning who was not helpful and then went Dr refred me for an early scan, tomorrow. He said if it gets worse to go A and E!> Not sure if they will do a scan either. has this happened to anyone???

Dear Jules80
I had bleeding on and off throughout the first trimester of both my pregnancies, I had several scans each time and everything was OK. It is very stressful I know - hopefully the scan will put your mind at rest. Do you have any pain? A mc is usually accompanied by period like cramps. I always had painless bleeding. All the best, hope it wil be OK.
