I am new and found out I was pregnant over xmas after tyring to get pregnant for 6 months. On Thursday I had some light brown discharge and was told this was nothing to worry about, however on Friday, the bleeding got heavier (although not as heavy as a period) with small clots and some mild cramps.
I went to A and E (as advised) who were not particularly helpful/symmpathetic but have referred me for an early scan on Wednesday. The hospital didn't give me any indication of if I had mis-carried or not, although I suspect I have.
I had mild-medium bleeding again most of yesterday although it has slowed up today a little.
I am really upset and next week seems ages to wait and find out. We have a nearby clinic who will do a private scan but I don't want to pay £60 to find out I have miscarried and then have this confirmed by the hospital two days later.
Has anyone had similar experiences with good/bad outcomes?
Have you got an Early Pregnancy Unit at your local hospital??? They have midwives etc that you can talk to and it would be them who will be scanning you on Weds. So they might bring it forward or tell you to come in.
I had a really bad red bleed at 6+3, but it didn't have any clots. Had brown spotting for 2 weeks afterwards and Peanut was fine. Very scary though so I know how distressing it is to wait to find out the outcome, either way.
They didn't take any blood at all at the hospital-just a wee sample.
There has not been too much blood-it has only been noticible when I have wiped myself after going to the toilet-I haven't even been going through more than one pad a day-it's just the clots which have made me worry and the fact the blood is bright red.
I think i have sort of resigned myself to the fact that it will be bad news as I can't let myself get my hopes up over the next few days only to be devestated on Wednesday.
I had spoken to NHS direct, and yes it is the Early Pregnancy Unit that I am going to on Wednesday-they told me that only did out of hours scans in emergency situations and that Wednesday was the earliest they could do unfortunately.
