Pregnant

So I’m pregnant after having a miscarriage in late January. I only had one cycle since. I’m so worried that I am going to lose this baby too. I should be around 4 weeks and 2 days if my calculations are correct.

Bleeding 13 weeks

When do you start to worry about bleeding in pregnancy? I’ve had some light pain and when I wipe there’s blood. I’ve had a miscarriage before which was totally different, from start to finish it was dark red/brown and clumps/clots coming out. This time it’s liquid pinky red blood when I wipe!? I’m 13 weeks today. Mi...

5 weeks

I’m currently 5 weeks pregnant. After 2 miscarriages I’m a nervous wreck! I’ve got a really dull achy pain in my tummy which feels a little bit like trapped wind but it’s driving me crazy. Has anyone else experienced this?

Had a PGT-A tested genetic embryo transferred and got pregnant, currently waiting for 7 week scan. Very paranoid that’s gonna be a missed miscarriage, have I got grounds to believe that or is it just in my mind?

Doctor doesn’t seem to believe there is any reason to believe anything it wrong as the embryo was tested and it was a viable embryo, what are you experiences?
