I have had 3 miscarrages in the past 4 years, I also have an 11 yr old and a 16mth old.
I found out 2 weeks ago I was pregnant again and was thrilled, from my last period I worked out I was 4 weeks, a week later I had heavy bright red bleeding with some small clots, the bleeding lasted a day then stopped. I went to the hospital where they took my bloods and rang me 2 hours later saying my hormone levels were high so could I come back for a scan. Scan was fine and I found out I was 9 weeks not the 5 I thought, which means I have had full on 7 day bleeding at 4 weeks and thought it was a period. I am bleeding again now, only light spotting, mainly brown in colour but occasionally red. I know 2 days ago everything was fine, I saw the heartbeat and everything. I was told I may experience bleeding and it will probably be nothing to worry about. The problem is with my history of miscarrage I can't help but worry. Am I more likely to miscarry again? Is this bleeding an early sign that I am destined to miscarry again.
Anyone have similar experience?
I'm in the same boat. I've had 3 miscarriages and I have a 7 year old. I've been off and on spotting/bleeding for over a week now. Started after sex with dh then tappered off. I had an internal jltrasoind where everything looked perfect with strong heartbeat. Then I had a pap at my exam 3 days ago, had more bleeding that's now tappered to light spotting. My Dr told me that since the ultrasound and heartbeat are good, even though I'm spotting and even with my miscarriage history, my chance of miscarriage are only like 4% right now and he's not concerned at all. My only instruction is pelvic rest for 3 weeks. He told me not to worry it's probably just that my cervix is sensative and bleeding easily. I thought I was at a high risk given my history but he said with a good strong heartbeat then no worries. It is hard not to worry though. I'm right there with u hun.
Having had 2 miscarriages I a row last year, I totally understand how worried you ladies must be I'm almost dreading getting pregnant again because of the constant fear it brings
I do know that seeing a healthy heartbeat reduces your risk of miscarriage massively, and it is then very rare to go on and lose the baby after one is seen on scan. With my miscarriages there was never a healthy hb, baby was slow growing and consistently behind dates.
I should also tell you that in all 3 of my healthy pregnancies I had bleeding in the first 3mths. Sometimes it was brown and light, other times it was heavy and bright red (especially bad with the twin pregnancy). It never amounted to anything, and all those babies were fine.
Wishing you both lots of luck, and hoping for healthy, happy pregnancies. Take care xxx
I've had 2 very early miscarriages (a couple days shy of 5w both times), am now 9.5 weeks and starting spotting brown/pink today. Freaking out, doctor wants me to have a scan tomorrow just to be sure. I had a scan last Wednesday and baby looked perfect with a hb of 176 but I hope the spotting is just nothing. Keep us updated!
