Pink tinge when I wipe? Please help!


I had a scan this morning and all was well with bean. Got put forward 4 days and saw a flickering HB. However, since 4pm this afternoon I have had a pink tinge when I wipe and at 4pm I had some pink discharge in my knickers. I won't say it was spotting as it was very far forward in my knickers iykwim and it was a very creamy pink.

I'm trying not to stress but can't help it. Please someone out my mind at rest. I'm wondering if this means I have a urine infection?

I don't have the number for my midwife yet as I haven't been assigned I have no one to call, please help me stop stressing.

You have a heartbeat so you know there's a VERY low chance now of a MC. Plus, you were put forward 4 days, when I miscarried, my baby and most MC babies are put back a week or so. Did you BD with hubby recently too? And remember that the scans often cause a bit of spotting. Pink is GOOD!! And it could be an infection, although I would think the Doctor would spot it during the scan if you had one

When I Miscarried on Feb 13, I had had spotting from 5w3 on that was often brown but became bright red when my baby actually passed and then completely ended until he came out via misprostol on Feb 27. Red is almost always bad, brown is old blood, and pink is almost always no biggie in comparison

Thank you so much

No sex, I've been scared of spotting afterwards ironically! So it's been avoided. My scan was abdominal, would that still maybe cause it? Ugh. Wish I could stop stressing but I can't

I think my EPU is only open during the day? I might be wrong tho. I've called my local 111 health line, a GP is calling me back within 2 hours. I didn't know who else to call

My scans, sex with hubby, and just going up stairs (doing too much) always made my spotting worse. In my case, the spotting was barely detectable, just tiny little pin-sized dots that were sometimes bright pink, but often brown.

Please don't stress sweetie and remember, you had a GREAT heartbeat. Most of us who miscarry NEVER see one! Please listen to me, the last thing you want is to cry and lose it over this. Just please remember what I said in your head: There's a Heartbeat. Most of us who MC never see one Love to you and your precious babe. It could be very simply that your cervix is extremely sensitive right now, just peeing or sitting down abruptly in your tub would be enough to cause a slight spot.

Big hugs, I have no doubt this ends today for you. Maybe don't even look when you wipe if it helps ease your worries. Your hubby sounds like a sweet guy
