@graygodess20:  try to breathe 🙂 spotting is very common in early preg….have you bd lately?? I would try not to worry unless it’s bright red and accompanied by lots of cramping. Glad your u/s is tomorrow – maybe they could move you up? Keep us posted and fx for you! Sending hugs and prayers your way 🙂

@graygodess20:  Okay, BREATHE. Spotting is super common, I know lots of women who have had spotting all throughout their whole pregnancy. Remember, stress is bad for you and LO both. Try taking a nice (body temp) bath and just relaxing. 

Sending lots of hugs!

@graygodess20:  I know it’s hard but try to calm down and breathe 🙂 I know that blood is terrifying during pregnancy but it’s not always as bad as you think.

I had spotting off and on for most of my first trimester up until about week 12. Sometimes it was brown but sometimes it was dark pink and it scared me to death. I ended up being diagnosed with a sub-chorionic bleed which is very common and usually absorbs itself eventually as it did with me. My bleeding would get worse if I had sex or if I had a difficcult bowel movement. I was put on pelvic rest and tried to stay off my feet as much as possible and it did go away.

There are many explanations for why you could be bleeding. I would just try to calm down and wait to talk to your doctor. I have heard from many nurses that if you are indeed miscarrying you will not be able to mistake the cramps for gas or anything else. It will be very painful and there will be a lot of blood. Hopefully that gives you a little bit of comfort for now. Hang in there and let us know how everything goes!

@graygodess20:  Please try not to worry 🙂 Pregnancy in itself is a stressful rollercoaster unfortunately, but stay the heck off of Google and the rest of the internet and DON’T SEARCH FOR YOUR SYMPTOMS! Remember that no two pregnancies alike, and what is happening for you is not someone else’s same situation. Just breathe!

Typically they say that if the blood is not bright red and is not filling more than 1 pad an hour, you should not worry.  Pink blood sounds to me like it is just your cervix being a little irritated (after all everything down there is filled with nerve endings and is swollen right now).  Cramps are also VERY normal in early pregnancy as your uterus is stretching to fit a baby, placenta, etc.  I don’t want to dimiss your concerns, because they are real fears, but try to be positive because being upset/worried cannot help the situation (I know you know this and it is really hard).  *Hugs*  Have a small treat and do something to relax until you hear from your doctor.

@graygodess20:  Could be from the bd! Sometimes takes a day or so to move down 🙂

I JUST had this happen to me yesterday and I freaked out. I am 8 weeks as well! I was making myself sick with worry so we went to the ER rather than waiting to set up an appointment for ultrasound, especially because it was Sunday. Everything turned out to be ok, the baby was 8w4d so a couple days further than we thought and the doctor said the heartbeat was nice and steady. She just said to stay off my feet as much as possible, not to work out too hard and to not have sex for awhile. I wasn’t cramping but my abdomen in General has just been really sore and achey so that made me nervous as well but it has consistently been that way for me since I found out at 4 weeks, the doctor said it is completely normal and it’s just your uterus growing pains.

Please try not to worry! I had this happen to me a few times early in my pregnancy, and I’m now snuggling my beautiful seven month old!

@graygodess20:  My first miscarriage started bleeding bright red all at once it was awful i was 9 weeks and had no idea i miscarried at 5 weeks. My second miscarriage i had red blood when i wiped from the tuesday to the friday and then the saturday i started bleeding bright red with clots just like a period but my hcg was down and i knew it was coming. I had no cramps at all.

 

Bleeding doesnt always mean m/c there are lots of reasons why this happened. Are you sure the blood came from your vagina? could it not have been from anywhere else? I had a spot down there which popped when i wiped which was full of blood, i panicked but it wasnt even related to pregnancy. At least you dont need to wait too long for an appointment. FX for you xx
