    Hi guys,

    I'm so glad to be back. I hadnt been on since before the weekend. I was bleeding bright red last friday. I bled once in my first pregnancy but no matter what you always worry about your bean! I called NHS 24 who referred me to the outpatients dept at a local hospital. They tell you automatically its a threatened miscarriage, check your fine and send you home. Being the easter weekend I was advised I wouldnt be seen for a scan until the tuesday.

    Saturday I had a brown discharge (TMI) but on the sunday I bled bright all day. I was terrified. Its hard to rest when you just dont know whats going on. Tuesday morning came and my local hospital where I was told to phone refused to see me as I would not get my booking scan there :hissy:. I called where I would be going and advised thursday would be the soonest appointment. I managed to get a cancellation for wed 11am. Almost a week!

    I just wanted to let you all know that you should never lose faith. I had a scan yesterday morning showing that my little bean stuck and in fact was 2 days older than expected. :happydance: The heart was beating away perfectly. I 'WILL' bleed more and I quote that 'bleeding in early pregnancy is extremely common, and for various reasons.' During implantation something happened that is the cause of the bleeding. I also have a small but safe cyst on my left ovary that can also be common.

    I will add pictures of the scan later on today. This is the second pregnancy I have bled, but I'm so glad to be back girls!

    Fantastic news and I'm so pleased for you.

    Can I ask if you had any clots at all? How long had you been bleeding? Was it quite heavy? Sorry for all the questions! x

    friday night I bled bright red out of the blue. Dried blood or 1mm brown bits (TMI) but you did ask lol, this was all day sunday. sunday morning and really bad sunday night bright red blood and since then just gragual lighter dried blood and sometimes this sticky goo. I was informed not to classify anything as clot unless it looks liek liver? The ways of describing these things!:blush: :blush:

    When I was bleeding it was way hevier than my normal period, hence why I was so scared.
