More bleeding, now some tiny clots. Scan tomorrow but really worried

I've had light bleeding for more than 24 hrs, including a small amount of fresh red stuff last night.

Saw the GP yesterday morning who booked me in for a scan tomorrow, then called out of hours service last night when I got the fresh stuff. Was told that if I had the scan booked I might as well wait for it as if it was a miscarriage there was nothing they could do anyway. Been told to go to hospital if it gets worse or if I get cramps.

I'm scared, don't want to talk to anyone because that would make it too real, but really really don't want to wait till tomorrow till I have this scan. I'm almost at the point of wishing it would get bad enough that I could justify going to the hospital sad

I had bleeding with DS1 but I don't remember it being this much.

Oh no sad - really sorry to hear this Chairmum. As you know, some women bleed lots and have healthy babies, and some don't. Only way to tell is the scan - if they told you to go to the hospital if you had cramps, I'd be inclined to go if there is someone to have DS for you. I know only too well the agony of the waiting.

If you had bleeding with your first, I wouldn't cross the pg off yet. I had bleeding with both mine - with my first pg, bleeding inc cramps & clots - from 7 weeks onwards, every few days.
Consultant told me that I'd probably miscarry (& asked why I was wasting her time coming in...)
Lovely GP & midwives told me to wait & see. Guess who was right smile

Does your local hospital have an EPU? If so, ring & ask what the proceedure is - with ours you could self refer - it was a case of turning up & waiting til they had a gap...

Good luck....

added trouble is that neither DS nor I are very well and I don't know if nursery will take him even though he is due in today, plus I don't drive so I will either have to book a taxi or wake SIL who works nights (DH is away)

I guess i will phone EPAU and see what they say

Ah, sorry, didn't know back story smile

Well, it may be more practical for you to just wait then (hanging around at EPU when you & ds aren't feeling great maybe not the best...)

If you can, put your feet up a bit & have an easy day - my lovely GP put me on bed rest (not possible with a lo around, I know!) - she said it wouldn't make any difference, but if the worst did happen, I'd know I had done everything I could....
