I woke up yesterday and when I went for a wee there was some bright red blood on the tissue. I wiped again and again and still there was blood. My stomach was cramping and my back was aching so we went to A&E. I bled a little at 6 weeks and my midwife said if it happened again then to go to hospital. Anyway, we waitedfor nearly 4 hours. I couldn't stop crying, it was awful. When the doctor saw us she looked in my knickers to see what was in there (nothing as it just bled when I wiped) and then she pressed on my tummy to see if it hurt when she pressed it. It didn't. They tested my wee and it showed positive on pregnancy and having blood in it. She then said it is either the start of a miscarriage or some kind of polyps on my womb that may have been aggravated. She said she would arrange for a scan but it wouldn't be for a few days at least. Luckily I have my scan already booked for tomorrow so they can check then and I don't have overly long to wait. I'm still bleeding now when I wipe but it's not as heavy and my cramps have stopped. I'm still so so worried. It's killing me cos I'm fearing the worst. We had a private scan two weeks ago and our little baby was wriggling around and seemed happy enough. I know there's nothing they can do but I just feel so upset and like I've just been sent home to wait it out. I rang my midwife today and left a message but she hasn't rang me back. It's killing me just waiting and hoping. I'm getting married in two weeks and I can't cope with anymore stress. I'm just so glad I already had my scan date for tomorrow cos if I had to wait even longer it would tear me apart. I've been reading the American forums and they seem to get a scan right there and then when things like this happen. It's awful how the NHS make you wait. It hurts so much not knowing what's happening. xx
Thinking of you hunni I mc at 5 weeks pain was horrific and I was passing clots. I've just booked early scan 4 7 weeks and been told if u see a hb the risk of mc is less than 5% after! Sounds positive, good luck for tomorrow x x
I hope everything is ok for you and your bump my love -
I think its terrible that u have to wait so long - i agree it should be done there and then as the extra worrying and stress cant make things any easier for you or the bump!
I feel for you hun as im going through the exact same thing except im 11 weeks, it started yesterday got my scan booked for friday so im just having to play the waiting game... Hope alls ok let us know how you get on
