Anyone had a successful pregnancy with quite a bit of bleeding at the start..?

...and some cramps? I am only 14dpo today, and got a BFP today and yesterday, but started bleeding with a fairly regular flow yesterday, and had cramps, which have gone today, although I've continued to bleed.

I know in my heart of hearts that it's probably a goner, but hoping against hope that lots of you have a cheery story to tell me?

I had implantation bleeding, went to EPU and was told it may or may not be viable but have a 2.6yo now so the pregnancy continued on successfully. I wasn't convinced at 5 weeks but turns out I was wrong! I also had the cramping but it left after a day or two and the bleeding was a pinky/brown colour, very small amount. HTH a bit. Fingers crossed for you that this one sticks firmly where it should! Congratulations on BFP!

I had a lot of bleeding between 9dpo and 16dpo with this pg. I was sure AF had arrived and drank buckets of wine to drown my sorrows on day 14 only to test positive a couple of days later...... So yes, it is possible to bleed quite heavily and still have a healthy pg.

PS Meant to say, am now 14 1/2 weeks and all is fine.

i was going to ask the same. i've had some bleeding (brown, pink and bright red) on and off for the past 3 weeks. i went for a scan a week ago today and saw a tiny 6 week bean with a beating heart. this is my 3rd baby, they have no idea why i am bleeding but fingers crossed so far everything is ok. i've just been told to take things easy and to avoid intercourse.

congratulations and the very best of luck to you

Thanks folks; I was feelng pregnant a couple ofdays ago, and now just feel a bit period-painy (although I can't really remember how I felt with DD). ZiggyF, can I ask whether you had any cramping at all as well?

I've just had a beta done at the clinic (this was IVF), so will know more later today, and will go back on Friday if necessary - I'm officially in TWW / beta hell...

yes- i bled on and off for 5 weeks at beginning of this pregnancy (it's my 2nd and am due in 2 weeks) They couldn't explain it.....wishing you so much luck- i know how you are feeling. It is very hard. They couldn't see anything until 6 weeks on scan. Lots of painful waiting. Good luck to you.

Yes- I bled lots between 7 weeks and 16 weeks and DD is now a very happy 1 year old.

ziggyf Wed 04-Nov-09 13:46:26

Soupspoon - yes I had quite a lot of cramping, it only settled down around 10ish weeks. I was convinced it was an early AF when I started bleeding, it looked and felt exactly the same. I'm wondering now whether it was initally twins and one didn't stick? Guess I'll never know.
