@Saddia I'm so so glad all is okay and baby's heart is bearing strongly 💕 you're doing great mama 💪 xxx
Just an update. We had a private scan and thank goodness, baby is fine and there was a heartbeat. They can't work out what's causing the spotting or the cramping which is still ongoing but seeing a heartbeat has made me feel so Much better. They mentioned a fibroid i have is getting bigger but i've always been told this won't affect the pregnancy so can't say for sure what has caused the spotting. I have to monitor myself for 24 hours and call the EPU if the spotting and cramping get worse. Thank you all for your kind words.
@Saddia sharing my experience as I went through this last weekend. Spotted - light brown- for 4 days! The midwife wasn’t worried but then had a tiny bit of clumping (say a finger nails amount) so called epau. However No cramps, no colour change, no change in consistency. After an agonising weekend they booked me in for a scan and all was fine. I also have reduced symptoms for a while- tbf I haven’t had any strong symptoms to begin with but they have tapered off (between 9-11 weeks). Obviously that was me and this is you but I can emphasise how stressful it is not knowing. In the meantime, hang tight, trust your body- especially if you’ve had a scan recently and if you’re not getting cramps and it’s not getting heavier this is a very good sign! Ps they didn’t give me a reason for the spotting but said they can’t see anything that would likely cause anymore. Good luck and stay strong!
Thinking of you xx
I think it's the trauma of my past miscarriage which is causing me so much stress. Called the EPU but you have to leave a voicemail and they eventually call you back. Thank you for all your words of support. I will update once i manage to get in for a scan xx
@Saddia sending lots of love, it can be so scary - my symptoms have started to reduce as well but i had my booking appointment and they said I should be just getting over the worst of it. She also said that many many women have spotting during pregnancy and a lot of times they csnt even identify why but it is normal and does NOT mean miscarriage. Seeing a healthy heat beat and being this far along the chances of miscarriage are about 2% so really low - I am sure everything is absolutely fine but because you have had a miscarriage before they should get you in quite quickly for a scan :) have you had your booking appointment? They gave me loads of numbers for local midwife/hospital on there xxx
@Saddia it’s normal for symptoms to fluctuate and start to tail off towards end of first trimester so I wouldn’t worry about symptoms as such. I keep convincing myself my boobs have gone down lol when they haven’t. The % of miscarriage at 10 weeks is rather low so I’d suspect it’s possible hematoma causing the spotting at this stage. Xx
@Saddia sending big hugs. Probably going to be the longest morning of your life but like @Lucy said, it’s probably something else. The waiting isn’t nice but you will have your answers soon and hopefully some peace of mind xx
Thank you Lucy. We only saw the baby last week and it was doing so well with a strong heartbeat. I've had reduced pregnancy symptoms the past few days and now spotting so i'm not hopeful. Waiting until 8am to call the EPU xx
Hi saddia I’ve been having light spotting as well brown and pinks and been for early scans and all is well at 9+6 weeks. You should be able to get early scan with nhs if your experiencing spotting/bleeding so try there before paying for private. I was told at 8 week scan I have tiny hematoma causing the spotting. Hope everything’s ok for you xx
Light spotting doesn't have to mean anything, wishing you luck 🫂🫂
No they said everything was fine. I have small fibroids but they said this won't affect the pregnancy. Epu don't take calls before 8am so hanging on and praying for the best x
Oh I’m so sorry to read this, did they say on your scan if you had a heamotoma (I can’t spell it) as that can sometimes cause bleeding. I know as well the EPU will see you so it’s worth ringing them too. Sending hugs and best wishes xxx
I know it’s horrible but try not to think the worst. Odds are the baby is fine. There’s a lot going on down there and some spotting can be normal, try and think positive x
Call your local early pregnancy unit. They will bring you in for a scan! X
