So ever since I got my BFP I have been a chronic worrier. I can’t help it its in my nature. My husband has told me on numerous occasion stop worrying what’s going to happen is going to happen and its out of our hands. I’m at work and I am on my feet 12+ hours. I feel a gush run down my leg. All I can think is “please don’t let it be blood.” I look down and it has soaked through my clothes. I run to the bathroom and my underwear is soaked with bright red blood. I am freaking out of my mind on the verge of tears. I call my husband at work and tell him. All he said was “I’m on my way.”I go to my boss and tell her I have to leave early. I feel bad leaving my co-workers short staffed but what can I do.So my husband picks me up and we high tail it to the ER. They take my info and take us to the back. They collect urine and blood. They hook me up to an IV. They come and tell me they are taking me for an ultrasound.I get there and she tries the abdominal US and she can’t see anything. She then tries the vaginal and that is not fun. She has me lift my hips up and she’s digging all around in there. The screen is not facing me and her face is as still and straight. I can’t gage a reaction. After what seems like 45 mins she’s done. I get wheeled back to my room. They tell me results will be back in a hour.Longest wait ever and I still don’t know what’s going on. Finally the doctor comes in and tells me…That I am at approximately 6weeks and that it was implatation bleeding.
Baby is ok and FHR is at 135bpm.

First, I’m really glad you and the baby are okay.
Second, that must have been terrifying. All I can say is you handled it much better than I would. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly and isn’t scary at all.
Are you doing okay now?

Reading this I was feeling light headed because I just can’t even imagine how terrifying that must be. I think it’s a sign you need some time off for a bit of rest maybe, poor mummy-to-bee
but thank goodness you and baby are okay

Well if everything is good…that is good. I had implantation bleeding but at approximately 9 dpo (3 weeks) but mine was also very heavy. I Thought it was my period. That seems late for implantation bleeding to me unless it was old but if they saw baby and a hb that is excellent news! That means baby is doing good. Did they do hcg levels?

I’m so sorry you had to go through such a stressful ordeal! So glad baby is ok! I can’t even imagine. I will send positive vibes that everything goes well for you and baby from here. Did the Dr say if you should take it easy or anything since you’re on your feet for so long at work?
I know how you feel about the worrying. I was away from home for the entire first 12 weeks of my pregnancy. 6 of which I was alone in a city where I didn’t know anyone. Any small thing worried me, and I had nightmares at night something would go wrong. I think the worrying is normal, especially in early pregnancy so don’t feel like it’s just you! Much love to you and your LO! xo

Thanks everybody for the wonderful messages and support. I feel a little better now. My husband has been so supportive couldn’t ask for a better man. When they did the US the result said small implatation bleed next to gestational sac. Once it stopped it turned to old blood and now I’m barely bleeding.
I am going to be taking more breaks and sitting down more at work.
My levels at the time were 53721. My first ob appointment is in 2 weeks. So we’ll see what happens.

I totally understand how you are feeling. I’ve been afraid of MC since my BFP aswell. At around 7weeks i wiped after going to the bathroom and had brown/red blood. I was a complete wreck and got in to see my Dr right away and she sent me for an emergency U/S too. The tech found the heartbeat right away and reassured me that it was also implantation bleeding. She said that she could actually see in my ultrasound that I had a little pool of implantation bleeding still there and that it should slowly come out over time and not to panic.
I felt relieved after that appointment but I haven’t seen a Dr since then. I will be 14 weeks on sunday and I have a OB appointment on Tuesday to see/hear the heartbeat and do a general first prenatal appointment. But because its almost been 7 weeks I keep having horrible dreams that I wake up in a pool of blood and that i lost the baby. And then I’m of course a wreck that entire day, so afraid to go to the bathroom because I don’t want to wipe and see blood.
I’m happy you are OK and baby is fine 🙂
