Bleeding at any time is alarming and you should get it checked out.
But usually brownish discharge is not a problem. Many women have this and it does not mean you have lost the baby.
Lots of bright red blood with cramps is the most worrying. Health care professionals sometimes ask you to keep any pads you might use to soak up the blood, so they can take a look. They will also want to know about volume (teaspoon full, egg cup full, cup full etc).
I had a bright red bleeding at 13 weeks (no cramps, not too much volume) - I am now at 32 weeks and had no other problems.
I had bleeding with my first two pregnancies and have a healthy 7 and 3 year old to show for it. I know its very scarey, the EPU in the area I lived at the time wouldnt do anything until 7 weeks so it was a hard wait, but I think other areas may do something earlier. It is worth getting it checked. I have my fingers crossed for you. Try to stay calm.
You may have, marne, but you may well have not. I think I read the other day that up to a third of women bleed in the first trimester, and most of them don't miscarry. I bled at five weeks with my first pregnancy, and miscarried. I bled for six weeks during this pregnancy, and am now 26 weeks along.
As others have said, you should try to get to an EPU. They won't be able to detect a fetal heartrate till about six weeks, but blood tests will be able to indicate whether your HCG levels are falling.
So sorry you are going through this. it is horrendous and the not knowing is the worst. Big hugs and I hope all turns out well for you xx
just got back from the hospital, the wont scan me until im 6 weeks, they said they wouldnt be able to see anything. they made me take another pg test and that was ok, they seem to think evrything is ok but i wont know for sure till a week monday.
However, I rested in bed and both my mc's came just the same. I think it's down to how you feel. In the old days people always used to advise full bed rest, but the advise I received was more like, 'what will be will be.'
If you feel tired and overwhelmed - rest. If not, don't.
Had another bleed yestaday, had a scan this morning but couldnt see much as i am under 6 weeks, all they could see is the sack. having aching pains in my stomach, seems worse when stood up, has anybody else experienced this?
I cant have another scan for 2 weeks, realy woried that somthing is wrong.
