Spotting at almost 15 wks and fearing the worst


Hi all, I'm feeling very worried so I thought maybe sharing it here might help. I am almost 15 weeks (they moved my dates but haven't updated my ticker yet) and I have had very severe sickness for weeks, so almost bed ridden for ages. I finally started to get myself out of the house more and after my first day back at work I started spotting (Tuesday). Spent yesterday morning at the urgent care centre because despite having previous scans at the early preg unit for this pregnancy, they still needed a referral before seeing me. So i am finally getting a scan later this morning. I am still spotting, sometimes brown, sometimes pink and it varies as to how thick it is. Wouldn't say it's blood but I have period cramps and this horrible feeling of what's to follow, feels all too familiar like how my others begun we'd just only started to tell people, it feels so cruel. Sorry, not sure what the point of my post is. I know I have to wait until I have scan to know if the baby is still alive and go from there. I feel really upset at the system though - I'm a high risk pregnancy and yet they still won't just let me have a scan when there's an issue, I still get treated the same as before, jumping through all the hoops before I get any care. 2 nights of worrying and I'm now just assuming I've lost the baby which is a horrible way to think but I just can't stand not knowing what's going on so I've resorted to assuming the worst I know you can spot/bleed for other reasons but the cramps are what are unsettling me, it just isn't a good sign having both together

So it's all ok - baby is alive and kicking with a strong heart beat. So relieved. I have a low lying placenta so it's likely the blood came from there. And the baby was kicking away at my cervix so maybe that's the lower cramping feeling? Has anyone else had a low placenta and bleeding from it?

I'm also glad to hear everything is ok! I've had some horrible pains before from baby kicking at the cervix. To me it felt like nerve pain more than cramps, but I can see where it could cause cramps too. I'm so happy for you nothing serious was going on and that the scan went good

I had low lying too with my youngest. By 26 weeks it moved up and out of the way. No problem delivering vaginally
