Hey, try not to fret just yet - give your GP or EPAU a call first thing - keep an eye on the blood loss. Many people bleed all the way through pregnancy and have perfectly healthy babies thinking of you x x

i had bleeding thro first 14 weeks pregnancy and now ds1 is 5!! there can be many reasons for it and everything can go on to be ok. like onlywants has said, give EPU a ring in morning and get seen straight away. until then try and relax and put your feet up xxxxxx take care xxxxxxxxx

I certainly have my fingers crossed for you. Your symptoms are similar sounding to my miscarriage but this certainly needn't be the case. Get to your EPU for a scan.

just a little update, well it was a miscarriage, baby had stopped growing many weeks earlier and i had a natural miscarriage at home, had a scan last week then an internal scan and said it was all nearly gone just a little left over, the bleeding has nearly stopped so im guesiing its almost over. we will try again asap, im coping pretty well, i think i knew it was going to happen when i firs saw the brown discharge and it was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders when I had the scan and I didnt need to go to hospital to be cleaned out as it was so nicely put to me.
The lady doing the scan was so lovely so that really helped.
