So very very sorry to hear about all this uncertainty. It can all be very daunting and upsetting when something like this happens.

There are a number of things this could be - some good some not so good and I'm not going to suggest what they could be BUT:

The medical people ought to at least tell you what they think is happening - have they not said anything?

Go back to the GP and ask straight away exactly what they think is happening - it helps to know, and not be in doubt about things.

Take care of youself x

I know it's hard but try to relax. I had bleeding several times with first pregnancy and it was type 1 placenta previa (placenta lifted by mid 20ish weeks for normal delivery) and once with 2nd pregnancy (unexplained). Friend with v v heavy bleeding had clot outside womb so baby not at risk. If you speak to any group of women you'll hear many good and some scary strories but none of them are your story so focus on getting plenty of rest and positive thoughts. Take care, x.

from my last post
i continued bleeding and found out yesterday when i was re scanned that i had miscarried. i feel completley numb. i had spoken to psu on fri and they didnt seem to think i haad miscarried when i told them about my bleeding bt wouldnt scan me till yesterday.even although i knew that would be the outcome i still had hope that it might have been ok. am devastated.all they kept saying to me was how common miscarrage is

Hi elmo
I am so sorry for your loss. I had a very early miscarriage in February, and think i am going through the same thing now (I'm 4+5 and have started bleeding brown, expecting it to get worse over the next few days like before)

Life really sucks sometimes, look after yourself.
