FutureMrsA2020 :  I really don’t have experience with this issue (other Bees will certainly chime in soon, I am sure) 

I just wanted to give you a virtual hug and say that I am so sorry you are going through this. Its sounds really emotionally draining and the uncertainty must be horrible! Hang in there!

With both my pregnancies I bleed throughout the first trimester, a bit like you describe. It would some days be spotting, some days more. With this current pregnancy (am 37 weeks now) I have 2 floods. 

Both times it was a heamatoma and nothing wrong with baby. Do you have any pregnancy symptoms or positive tests? I was still getting nausea throughout this.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. Unfortunately until the ultrasound it really is difficult to determine if it’s harmless spotting/first trimester bleeding or a miscarriage. I think you are doing the best thing by mentally/emotionally preparing for the worst but hoping for the best.

This period of not knowing and worrying is definitely the worst. What helped me was reminding myself that worrying doesn’t control or impact the situation. I tried light meditation/breathing to try to relax and release that worry/anxiety. Until you know the outcome, anticipatory emotions are more draining then they are productive. 

I also found it helpful to continue treating my body as if the pregnancy were healthy but stopped myself from doing any further planning or daydreaming about baby’s arrival in an attempt to slow/minimize my attachment to the pregnancy/fetus. I think this helped when the MC was confirmed for me a week later.

FutureMrsA2020 :  Doesn’t sound harsh at all. Keeping everything crossed for you for tomorrow’s scan but know there are plenty of us here that have experienced a MC and we’ll be here to provide support in the event of bad news.

That’s quite positive but I know how scary it is to bleed when pregnant. I have everything crossed for you FutureMrsA2020 :
