I'm so sorry, the early days are the worst waiting to see if your baby will stick. Have you been tracking your progression on tests? That has been a huge comfort to me with my anxiety!

Its hard isnt it, with my other two pregnancies i was very lucky and never had no issues so this is so new to me

No i thought it might make me worse if one was fainter than another. I suffer with anxiety aswell which makes it harder. Was even to scared to have a bath tonight, makes me sound so silly xx

You don't sound silly, you sound like a worried momma! But I would be comforted by the fact that you've had successful pregnancies already. Odds are this one will be fine too in that case. Every pregnancy is different, so spotting this time doesn't mean anything is wrong.

Well ive had no more blood over night.

When I got up i had a bit more but its gone back to brown colour. It wasnt red or pink. Is that a good sign? Or still not? There wasnt no discharge with that just abit of old blood when i wiped agter a wee..

Shall i ring the early pregnancy unit and see if they will see me today instead of tomorrow xxx

It's worth seeing if they'll see you today, bleeding in small amounts is usually not to worry, I was told it's bad when you're soaking pads, I know how stressful this is, limbo is the worst

I had bleeding at 7-8 weeks and it was bright red.
Afterwards, I had brown, and my doctor told me, if you see brown, it's okay because it's old blood. It's bright red she liked a little less (although she wasn't overly concerned because she said everything looked fine). Turns out the blood was from blood vessel that popped in the cervix. I had a lot of pain so it had me very worried but everything turned out fine!

FX for your echo, but blood doesn't always equal the worst! But I can totally understand freaking out because I was a mess then!

Spotting is actually so common in early pregnancy it is practically a symptom of pregnancy. Most women who spot will get it between 4 and 9 weeks, sometimes later!

I've had two pregnancies and both I've spotted with, around 6 weeks it started, and with this second pregnancy it lasted longer, and in fact, I had a lot more 'fresher blood'.

TMI but I noticed with this second pregnancy when I was still spotting around 9 weeks, about an hour after a bowel movement, fresher spotting would occur. I wasn't even straining, but I guess anything down that area can irritate you somehow!

Both scans I had no obvious cause for the spotting, and I tried my best to see that as a good sign.

You have to think, your uterus is already growing, even though baby will be absolutely tiny. In general more blood will be pumping to the uterus when things are growing etc, so theres always going to be a higher chance of spotting.

You will always naturally worry, I did every time! But just know it is extremely common and usually not a cause for concern unless there's a lot of red blood or pain. Even cramping/aching is quite common.

Fingers crossed your scan goes well!
