I'm new to writing threads but have found that whenever a bit nervous about something, there are many people here who that can offer good insight.
I'm now 9 weeks 5 days into my first pregnancy and yesterday (Friday) I had very minor cramping approximately 5 minutes followed by a some red blood and a small clot (There has been no additional cramping or pain). I immediately called my midwife who said to wait it out. An hour later, I had a big gush of blood which immediately stopped (without any other symptoms of cramping or pain).
This morning I woke up dry but did feel very nauseous and was dry heaving. During this, some spots of brown blood did come out.
I immediately rang the midwife on-call who said to prepare myself for a miscarriage and unfortunately that there is nothing I can do but to wait and see. I am booked in for an U/S on Monday morning.
Obviously, my husband and I are both very nervous and anxious as we have to wait an entire weekend to see what is happening. However, we are trying to keep positive.
Any experiences that you could share would be definitely helpful and greatly appreciated!
This is one of those 50/50 situations where it can be the beginning of a miscarriage or it could just be bleeding/spotting due to several reasons that are actually rather common. You would definitely know if you would already miscarried so if you don't continue to bleed and don't continue to have bad cramps you are most likely fine. During the scan they can most likely pinpoint the bleeding cause.
I experienced brown bleeding (some pink) from 6wks-8wks almost daily. Accompanied by the regular cramping and back ache.
If you have been experiencing bright red blood with clots, I'd recommend taking a trip to the ER to put your mind at ease. I really hope everything is ok for you and baby is fine
I had a gush and lots of brown spotting on Tues last week - I thought all was lost but scan was fine. Apparently it could be my cervical erosion. Nurse said its only an issue if it gets heavier, clotty or painful.
I had bleeding for 2 days at 10 weeks and was horrified too, but it stopped on the third day and little one is absolutely fine 15 weeks later so don't lose hope, it may just be as the others have said. Got my fingers crossed for you x
I had a large gush of red blood during this last week and was terrified that it was the end.
I went to the EPU and was scanned and apparently, it was all just caused by a burst blodo vessel. There is so much going on down there in pregnancy, and so many blood vessels stretched out, that im surprised that not everyone has some degree of bleeding!
Are you able to get in for a scan? Are you in the UK? If so, your midwife should be able to book you in for an emergency one at the EPU. The exact same thing happened to me at 10.5 weeks. I called the midwife and they scheduled me for a scan the next morning. There was no obvious reason for the bleeding (it just turned to on and off spotting for the next week) and baby was dancing around and healthy as could be at the scan. I've never had any more bleeding and am doing great now at 18 weeks. So don't lose hope! Bleeding like that is very common and more often than not isn't a sign something is wrong. Hang in there!
