Please give me your positive stories about bleeding in T1 with everything working out okay in the end.

I'm 7wks on Mon and have been having spotting on and off since 5w4d, but no cramps. At first the blood seems to come as bright pink mixed with EWCM, and then over the next day or two I'll get orange/brown spotting. Had an US at 6w4d which showed perfect HB and no reason for bleeding. I've also has really bad ms for ~1.5 weeks and my HCG is rising really well, so my doc says it's nothing to worry about.

But for my last PG I had an US at 6w4d which showed perfect HB, had really bad ms and everything went well until I started bleeding and had a mc. I know the bleeding last time was very different to the bleeding I'm getting this time, but every time it starts again I'm in tears and can't help thinking that this PG is over.

So please give me your good stories about bleding in T1 and everything working out okay because I need stories of hope to help me through.

Aww. Well its reassuring that your levels are rising.
I had some bleeding too when I was 5weeks pregnant, turned out to be a breakthrough bleeding. I am now 24weeks pregnant. I was however checking my hcg levels after the bleed for a week or two.

My mother was telling me when she was pregnant with my brother, she had a lot of bleeding at three months, doctors were sure she was miscarrying. Well my brother now has two kids of his own :-)

Take care of your self and stay positive.

My sister had similar. On and off spotting then at about 10 wks lots of bleeding, including clots. She was overseas on her honeymoon and local dr told her she was miss carrying. Upon further talks with her (as she had no cramping etc) I suggested she see a dr for a scan when she got back to civilisation..... She was surprised to see bubs waving back st her at that scan. Bubs is now 1.


I also had bleeding requiring pads at 8-10wks of both my 2-3 PGs. I was put on bed rest by OB. Those bubs are now 3 & 5,

I had quite heavy bleeding at 6wks with my fist baby, and thought for sure it was a mc. I went to the emergency room, and they admitted me overnight, and when they did an ultrasound the next morning everything was fine. Some spotting can be very normal. Try not to stress too much as thats bad for u and bubs. All the best

Hi there, I'm just getting over a week of bleeding, but the scan at the OB showed bub with a great hb and he wasn't worried. I was told it can be normal and with no cramping not to worry too much. I know that's hard and I was freaking out, but trust that your medical professionals know what's going on. Thinking of you

Thanks ladies! I'm trying to convince myself that all will be okay.  I'm getting used to seeing it now and tell myself each time that bleeding without cramps is okay, but I still just wish it would stop. I haven't been doing any exercise since 5wks on docs orders (before the bleeding started) and it's just hard to see it keep coming back despite the constant bed rest.

I had spotting/bleeding with both of my pregnancies which went to term. Good luck!

Oh Sunshiney, that's scary.  I've bled with 4 out of 5 of my pregnancies, two of those times everything was ok.  Seeing a hb increases the odds of a successful pregnancy, you know it's not a blighted ovum.

I'd be hopeful but terrified!  Have you got another scan planned soon?

Sunshine, it's so stressful I know. I had same sort of bleeding as you describe from week 9-14 then again around week 21. All the extra scans showed bub was normal, placenta was normal. DD2 is now 3.5m old & perfect. I did have a secondary post partum Haemmorage 1 week after the birth though.
When I was furiously Googling at the time it seemed to be common in approx 1/3 of pregnancies.

Mine wasn't in the first trimester - but I had a small bleed with no cramps at 14w1d. It was very scary because I thought I was in the safe zone. They couldn't find a reason for the bleed but I later found out that my placenta was posterior and leading up to the bleed I 1) exercised 2) DH and I DTD and 3) I carried heavy shopping bags upstairs. Good luck - bleeding is common but it's just scary because they often can't guarantee you will be ok.

Sunshine, I've had lots of bleeding this pg.  I had a 3 day implantation bleed to start with from CD19.  Then a bit of brown/pink spotting at around 5wks for 1 day.  Then from 6.5wks till now I've been bleeding everyday with only 3 days of no bleeding or spotting.  It's been like a light period mostly with a huge bleed at 12wks which was very scary. Thankfully brown bleeding since then.  A huge change from DD's pg where I had no bleeding whatsoever.  I had a m/c earlier this year and with that only a few days of pink spotting (hardly anything) before I found out I'd lost bub.  This pg has had far more bleeding!  I've needed regular Anti-D shots too - it's been a hellish ride lol!

But guess what, bub is absolutely fine so far, very low risk NT scan and bub is developing well.  My OB is not worried - placenta and bub are fine.  It is due to a blood clot in my case, so I have to rest as much as I can, exertion makes things worse I find. I have to stay away from any foods that thin the blood too (eg fish). Things seem to be easing now (touch wood) and it's mostly old blood now.

Hang in there Sunshine, of course there are no guarantees and you can't control everything, but bleeding in pg is far more common than you'd realise and it doesn't always mean the worst as per me and PP's.  I know how hard it is after a m/c, bleeding is the last thing you need.. Get regular scans if you can to reassure yourself (up until recently I had them every 1-2 weeks, it really helped keep me sane!). Look after yourself and try to stay positive, hard as it is.   hhugs.gif

With DS2 I bled on and off until 17 weeks, ranging from spotting to gushes of bright red blood. I was never able to relax and enjoy being pg, but thankfully bub was always ok and there was no further issues after 17 weeks.

Interestingly, with my m/c, I had no bleeding at all, just had a scan at 9.5 weeks and there was no h/b.

Good luck, I really hope that everything works out xo

I bled from weeks 7 - 12 on and off, and am now at 32 weeks with no problems - all tests etc are fine, everything is healthy.
Try not to stress too much (not easy!), but it is definitely possible for things to work out fine.

#17 WithSprinkles

I had spotting in my first trimester with DD and she is now 6 months old (nearly 7!)
At the time I was told 20-25% of women will have bleeding/spotting in pregnancy. Of these cases around 50% will go on to miscarry but 50% will not.
Once you have seen a good strong heartbeat though the risk of miscarriage drops significantly.
It's very hard not to stress, wishing you all the best!

I had bleeding so heavy 3 times between 6 and 9 weeks, they told me I miscarried each time. No cramps. I have a beautiful 17 month old daughter now original.gif there is hope!

Pink spotting between 6 weeks to 8 weeks then 10 - 11 weeks. At 13.5 week now and bleeding has stopped. Last scan at 13 weeks shows heartbeat. and 12 wk NT scan showed bub jumping around. So far so good. I was terrified too. Hope you will be ok.
