when i went to the loo at bedtime last night when i wiped there was some blood. it was obviously new blood - quite pinky / reddish.
there were lots of tears on my part but as it was the middle of the night not much i ould do.

  • Hi Hon,

    Try not to worry I have had 3 bleeds and everything is fine, it's more common than you may think.

    I would ring your gp as if it's same as mine they need to refer you to epu anyway. Just try and stay calm, I know it's easier said than done.

    Thoughts are with you hon

  • Ring both thats what I would do anyway good luck I'm sure its fine xx
  • yeh most of the time you need to be refered to epu, you cant usually just make appointment through them but everywhere is different. If your doctors not much help then give them a ring after and see what they will do for you. you only recently got bfp didnt you? im only asking because they wont scan you usually until your about 6 weeks as they cant see anything alot of the time before 6 weeks.
    good luck, im sure its ok, it is very common to bleed in early pregnancy

  • phoned epu - they said go to a&e and book in there and come up to them - going now. x
  • oh no hun I know exactly how you feel and I am so sorry you are going through this too. I spoke to a doctor yesterday and was advised that as long as the bleeding had stopped and i wasnt in any pain to try not to worry as bleeding in early pregnancy is common and very often all turns out well. I know hearing that doesnt help as I am still very upset and scared by it. I have everything crossed for us both.

  • Hi girls - well what an awful night / morning.
    Went to a&e - saw the triage nurse who filled out some paperwork then i went straight up to epu.
    They did some bloods and told me my scan could be done at 1 oclock.
    By the time 1 came I was so worked up.
    Anyway, sonographer couldn't see anything when she scanned my tummy (well she said she could see a sac but no baby) and I started to panic.
    She then did an internal scan and there it was - my little bean with a heart beat.
    She looked around some more and said I have 2 cysts on each ovary and she felt one had burst, thus causing the bleeding.
    they said it was nothing to worry about but that it may happen again and to go back if pattern of bleeding changes.
    I feel so overwhelmed - I saw my babies heart beat but I really am fearing the worst!!
    thanks for all your kind words girls xxx

    PS - they also said I was measuring at 6 weeks and 5 days which is 6 days ledd than we had it, but no big deal.

  • Ah MrsN, I'm so sorry you've had to go through this - can't imagine how scared you must have been. Thank goodness your little bean is ok - and how wonderful that you saw the heart beat!
    Hope everything is ok from now on x
  • Aw i'm filling up! i'm so happy for you! there is nothing like that fear! time just drags, its awful!
    Good luck
  • OMG thank god I was sooo worried about you, I am so please dlittle bean is doing well and now you know what that bleeding is all about. I am so pleased babe.
