7 weeks pregnant and bleeding with clots


Hello,

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?

Hi Hun,

I would go back to A&E as this happened to me last week and I was kept in for two days (with a sad ending I'm affraid). They should be monitoring your bloods till you get scanned.

Why don't you try phoning them.

I had something very similar with my last pregnancy. I phoned NHS24 who booked me in for an early scan that day. It was a weekend as well.

Good luck!

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.

Hope everything is ok, thinking of you xx

I think I am too scared to.

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.

Don't be scared. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to change the outcome, but you can do something about alleviating the stress and worry.

Please phone the EPU/NHS Direct. Don't let A&E fob you off (to be honest, there isn't much they can do anyway).

If I knew where you lived I would be happy to help locate your local EPU for you to call. Mine have been fantatasic support over the past few weeks, I don't know what I would have done without them

Just go back to A&E, they should beable to check your HGC levels then repeat this in 48 hours until you can be scanned.

Ooops crossed posts.

Well done for phoning. Did they give you the unit's number so that you could at least speak to a midwife? They might keep you in mind then should they get a cancellation Mon/Tues xx
