My doctor told me if I experience any bleeding in my pregnancy to go to the ER and not wait for an appointment.

My OB has an after hours line for emergencies. If they think the situation is serious enough, they page your doctor to find out what they want you to do. Your doctor should also have a line like this, unless you’re talking about an RE. 

I wouldn’t go to the ER for spotting. I’m sorry you’re so stressed though, I know it’s hard.

My doctor told me today at my checkup that if any bleeding or spotting becomes present (I’ve been blessed to have none so far) to call him. There should be a doctor on call after hours to answer any questions and guide you in the right direction of what is best for you & your baby. Given your history, I would definitely give them a call just to let them know & ask them what they recommend. I’m so sorry you’re going through this, Bee! I can’t imagine how nervous you are. Hang in there!! Keep us posted on everything!

3 times I thought I was miscarrying.  All three times I went to the ER.  All 3 times I was taken seriously, had ultrasounds, and left very relieved that all was fine.  

if you will feel better being seen as soon as possible, then yes, go to the ER.

I wouldn’t go. At this point, if you are, you are. What you want is KNOWING whether or not another MC is happening and either way it doesn’t change how things will happen. Since you yourself is not in immediate danger I would just wait until your appointment

FuturemrsJJohnson:  Phew, good news.  I say when in doubt, always go to the ER.  Ignore bees that say otherwise.  FX things keep progressing.

pickles325:  Great advice! Let’s have everyone go to the ER when they need reassurance, not medical treatment. That ought to ensure that ER’s are backed up to the next city at all times. Remember to bring not only lunch, but a good book and your pyjamas the next time you go to ER because you are going to be there a while- a long while.

FuturemrsJJohnson:  Great news. I am happy for you. ER staff should always be nice and take each patient seriously.

julies1949:  Yeah, I stand by what I said.  If you have an instinct that something is wrong (not just in pregnancy but in general) I believe better safe than sorry.  If it ends up being not a true emergency, then yes, you’ll wait there with a book while others get bumped ahead of you, but I still think that you should listen to your gut — and if your gut tells you to go to the ER, go.  

I also can’t stand when people say “if you’re miscarrying there’s nothing they can do anyway.”  A bleed could indicate a blood clot or many other conditions, some of which are treatable with meds, bed rest, etc.  But you can’t get treated if you don’t get  it checked out.

pickles325:  “when in doubt, go to the ER”

this is irresponsible. If you think you have a medical problem, there are many other resources rather than just going to the ER with everything that isnt life threatening E.g pharmacists, out of hours doctors, urgent care centres, minor injuries units, 111 (UK)

There are so many people that go to the ER who don’t need to. Your gut might tell you that because you don’t have a clue whats going on, and that’s ok, you can seek information from other places more appropriately before making a more informed judgement on where best to go

FuturemrsJJohnson:  Go to ER. You are stressed out about it and will be a nervous mess through the weekend. Even if it’s just for your piece of mind- go. And don’t feel guilty for it not being an emergency. As a nurse, I am sure you know people go to ER with all sorts of minor issues- yeast infections, toothaches, colds. You are carrying a potential human being inside. Enough on its own to go to ER at the sign of a problem. 

Just saw your update- so happy you got some good news and hcg was more than doubling!

julies1949:  This thread is about distressed OP and her pregnancy. After previous miscarriages,  it is extremely difficult to go through pregnancy. The fear, the anxiety the waiting for another show to drop is absolutely awful. Let’s be supportive of OP here and focus on her post, not fight over medical care system. If you want to debate that topic, create your own spin off thread ” when is it justifiable to go to ER”, or pm posters individually. Don’t stress out OP further with unproductive side debates. She went to ER already and got check out, so debating it is a moot point.

Did they test if you are RH-? You should have a rhogam shot if so.

They probably wouldn’t show you the screen because so many women go in pretending to have cramps in order to get a “free” early ultrasound.
