bleeding/spotting in early pg

quick question to anyone who has experienced bleeding/spotting in early long did it last?

i am 7+2 wks and have been 'bleeding' since monday morning. when i say bleeding its more like a watery brown discharge (hope none of you are eating!)

i have had a scan and all appears fine. baby measuring perfect and strong heartbeat. the sonographer had a look around and could not find any obvious reason for the bleed. she thought it could just be old implantation blood?

i'm just wondering if i should go back to gp if it carries on for much longer?

i am quite anxious as have had 3 prev mc between 6-8 wks in the past year.

any advice greatfully recieved!

thanks xx

Hi Shyla

I had exactly the same issue - had light, brown bleeding, then a scan but was too early to see anything but hcg levels fine. I then had v light bleeding for another week before it stopped. A scan at 7 weeks showed heartbeat and also a small area of implantation bleed. They said I might bleed again as they could still see it on the scan and not to worry and now at 9 weeks I've been having slight bleeding for the last couple of days.

Obviously it's worrying but I think it's really normal and as long as it is old brown blood and it doesn't go red or get much heavier I wouldn't worry too much.

I know it's hard not to be anxious though so call your doctor/midwife if you are still concerned.

I think I bled for at least 2 weeks with my ds, when I went for my scan it was a small lesion, ds was fine.

Hi Shyla,

I had some bleeding simlar to yours for about 5 days at 9 weeks then again just after 13 weeks. I also had a scan on each occasion and was told they couldn't find a reason for the bleeding - the doctor explained it may have been that my cervix was sensetive and can bleed easily (which is more common than people think) or it could just be old blood from a small bleed from the womb due to a little knock. They did stress however that any bleeding should be reported to your doctor or midwife, even though does happen from time to time.
I have also suffered with previous mc and have been worried since I found out I was pregnant, but the bleeding did stop for good after the second time and I've only had a tiny bit since - I'm 29 weeks now.
I would speak to your midwife if you're worried, even after I'd had the scan, I still called her every day until it had stopped for reasurance. It's a good sign that your scan was ok.
I hope everything turns out ok for you, I'm sure it will be fine xxxx

thank you all very much for your replies.

i have an appointment with the midwife next week so if it hasnt stopped then i am defo asking for another scan....any excuse lol!

tbh, it has eased off quite alot. it's mostly there when i wipe (ha ha, who could you say this stuff to in rl?!)

aslong as it doesnt get any worse or i start getting pains/cramps i am just trying to relax as much as poss.

off to put my feet up as im sure rest will help alot ( or so i keep telling mr shyla!)
