Spotting again.. seems like fresher blood than last time


Hey ladies
I had spotting at 5-6 weeks, had a scan nothing much to see so had a follow up and all seemed well, saw a flickering heartbeat.
Spotting seemed more brown/pink and a touch red but not much then.

Iím now 9 weeks and I just wiped and itís fresher blood, itís redder anyway, seemed a bit watery rather than mixed in with the vaginas natural discharge.. a thicker blob of blood that was darker red.. no pain.
Did have a bowel movement so unsure if that irritated me somehow by straining but donít feel like I strained enough to have caused spotting?!

Iím going to call midwife in the morning, but do you think theyíll scan me again? Especially if Iíve had spotting before? I remember them saying if it was fresh blood and a lot of it or pain then call the early pregnancy unit again, but I wouldnít say itís a lot a lot.. itís more than last time, but not a lot?

Iduno I just feel horrendous now. I was actually starting to feel quite positive despite the all day nausea getting me down a little bit. But I was managing that okay, just made me feel a bit awful at times.

I just hope nothing is wrong with baby.
Iím worried that the muscle I pulled in my lower belly has hurt baby and all sorts.

Anyone had repeated spotting and had several scans? Or were you turned away and told to wait til 12 weeks? My 12 weeks scan is first week April.

I haven’t been in your position but just wanted to send you some and I hope it’s just irritation from your bowel movement. A call to the midwife wouldn’t hurt

I had occasional spotting from 6-8 weeks with my first pregnancy but it was mainly brown blood from what I can remember. She is now a healthy 5 year old. I really hope everything is ok and they do re-scan you. If not do they have any private scan clinics in your area you could go to to reassure you?

I had fresh red blood mixed in my mucus at like 7 weeks. They did an echo, heartbeat. But it was a tiny echo machine, so I was scheduled for a bigger echo, I had it at 8 weeks, everything was perfect.

I had once fresh blood mixed with my mucus like 4 days ago, and I haven't seen my doctor since... but she had told me the first time that pink, brown was fine, and as long as it was just as little fresh blood as I had this time, it shouldn't be an issue, as there are a lot of very sensitive, numerous blood vessels now down there and they can pop.

I also had this fresh blood 4 days ago after going to the bathroom after a lot of constipation... so I'm also thinking the forcing might have been enough to pop all the sensitive vessels. I won't see my doctor until the 19th

Hope all will be well

I had lots of spotting, several variations of color and amount and they never scanned me until 20 weeks. I didn’t have any pain - and the midwife just told me to go to the ER if I filled more than a pad an hour with blood. Everything turned out fine, I believe I had a sensitive cervix, and I just bled often. Hope all goes well and they can give you some reassurance!

Call EPU again, the most they can say is no but chances are theyíll scan again. Good luck x

I havenít called yet as I havenít seen anymore yet. Plus Iíve caught my sons cold and the nausea has hit me again so even if I got offered a scan Iíd rather not go up feeling so rotten. My sons off nursery too because of his cold so no one to have him.

I got worried as I didnít feel so nauseous yesterday but itís hit me today so hopefully a good sign?

Fingers crossed it’s a good sign! I’m around the same dates as you and my nausea is doing the same. There one day gone the next. I’m very nauseous this morning, even vomited, after a few days of feeling fine

Iíve had no more obvious spotting since, so Iím going to put it down to being a slight strain when going to the toilet. If it happens again Iíll call. I had discomfort last time where as this time I havenít.

I just have to stop working myself up! Itís not like anything can be done so early on is there? So I just need to look forward to my 12 week scan, itís not that far away!

I really am just working myself up this pregnancy but I think the fact I hear more about losses than ever before, it makes you worry! Itís great that women are so open about it, itís good to talk about it but i duno I guess it makes you realise itís a lot more common than you originally realised. I had a smooth pregnancy with my son, so Iím just worried that this one just canít be as smooth! My mom and my partners Mom also had a loss on their second pregnancy etc so Iím just winding myself up constantly over everything! Like hey I feel slightly less sick than yesterday, or oh no the bloatiness has gone down dramatically?! I just need to snap out of it and enjoy the pregnancy and hopefully itíll go well and baby will be happy and healthy.

Itís a pain isnít it? Woke up worried I didnít feel sick because of spotting then it hit me hard! I havenít thrown up yet thankfully but I end up trying super hard not to heave. Canít bear sweet things, but I made myself try ginger nut biscuits, and they helped calm it until tea time! Gonna see if they help in the morning!

Ps. Iím rambling sorry! Haha
I donít really have any girl friends I can talk to about these things so Iím here just over thinking and sometimes I just need to let it out before I implode!
