I’m 5w5d and this morning I woke up to cramps and (TMI) blood when I wiped.

I’ve been to the hospital already they’ve taken blood to test my levels etc and I’ll follow up with my gp later today.

I’m so stressed can anyone shed some light if this has happened to them.

Hi ausfarmerswife, I started bleeding right on 6 weeks. Bright red gushes of blood. I had been spotting brown a few days earlier also

I happened to start bleeding while waiting for a progesterone shot at my FS office so they let me have a scan right away (was due to have it the next day). All looked good and got to see bub for first time. I stopped bleeding red but still had brown blood for a few days then brown spots for a few weeks

I am 21 weeks now. Haven't had bleeding since and they don't know what caused it first time around. They did up my progesterone after that as it had dropped but it was a frozen embryo transfer so progesterone needs a bit of a helping hand

Fingers crossed for you that it's just one of those things and it clears up soon

I had bright red gushing bleeding at 5+3, 5+6 and 6+4. Scans on each occasion showed everything was fine (pregnancy sack and pole in the first two, heartbeat in the last one) and no explanation for the bleeding. This is an IVF pregnancy and I did have some progesterone issues but none of the bleeds happened when my progesterone was low, so I remain a mystery. I’m now 17+3 and haven’t had any more bleeding.

Fingers crossed everything is ok!

Thanks I’m trying to relax and not stress out but god it’s hard hopefully the gp can give me something.

The hospital told me it was too early to do a scan so they just took blood

They should be able to scan to see the location of the pregnancy. At 5+5 they likely wouldn’t see a heartbeat but should see the pregnancy sack and yolk sack, and perhaps the feral pole. I’d ask for a scan, and say you understand there probably won’t be a heartbeat but that you want to rule out an ectopic.

Ask your GP for a referral for a scan. They should be able to see something, even if they need to use the "wand". Unlikely to see a heartbeat at this stage so don't be discouraged if there isn't one.

I’ve got to have bloods again Monday & they will compare. I have a referal for a ultrasound but the dr said get it if the bleeding gets worse otherwise wait till I see them again Tuesday & after they compare.

Unsure if I should just book in?

Cramps are gone no bleeding onto a pad, just when I wipe it’s there it’s like an egg white consistency but red.

I’d get the scan for your peace of mind.

Thanks everyone, but the cramps have ramped back up and I passed a big tissue looking thing. (SORRY TMI)

No issues with sharing.

If it helps my SIL passed big bits of what she described as "liver" when she was pregnant with my nephew. She had a scan and he was still there. It's hard to tell without a scan and bloods

Reading this made me remember- I passed three things that looked like liver during my bleeds. They were congealed blood that my OB said had probably been sitting in my cervix for a little while, rather than tissue (sorry, TMI).

Thanks for the reassurance it was liver like that I passed I’ve passed one larger bit one mini bit. The dr said wait till Monday for more bloods, but I don’t know if I should go earlier it seems like a long wait.

#19 ausfarmerswife

Posted 26 June 2019 - 08:39 PM

Thanks for checking on me, im Still bleeding passing clots cramping etc I’ll see my gp Tuesday to confirm my bloods are going down But I’m not upset it’s nothing that can be helped. I’ll just try again when possible. Anyone know how long your supposed to wait?

Sorry that you are experiencing this, it’s hard.

With my miscarriages I waited to have one cycle then tried the next one. The first time I did this I had another miscarriage, the second time stuck. Good luck xo

I’m sorry to hear this is happening to you ausfarmer.

My FS told me that if you have an early miscarriage there’s no reason to wait - I became pregnant again straight after my previous miscarriage with no period or anything between the two. Currently 18 weeks.

Good luck and I hope everything goes well for you.

I'm so sorry.

You don't need to wait. You can start ttc as soon as you want.

My IVF clinic had me go again straight after my early MC(about 5 weeks pregnant from memory).

Fingers crossed though that everything is ok.
