As you can see from my ticker im almost 8 weeks pregnant and since yesterday i have had very little bleeding. Only when i wipe not on panty liner and TMI ALERT its like a discharge with some blood in it. I never bleed at all on my first pregnancy so for those of you who have some experience of bleeding Should i be worried about this?

Hi May08 Wife, It is such a worry when you see blood during pregnancy. I had a bleed a 6 weeks on this pregnancy, bright red blood. I went into the EPU in Holles Street and they did a scan for me, thank god all is fine. The doctor in HS told me that bleeding in pregnancy in quite common and does not always mean a bad thing. It would be no harm though just to get it checked out for your own peace of mind. Give your maternity hospital a call and see what they say. Best of luck xx

If its brownish blood it could b old blood that was left over from your period, you could perhaps call your local GP or perhaps go one better and call your local hospital, they may scan u to check all is ok Bleeding is not uncommon is pregnancy , try not to worry too much until u know, hope you are ok :xox

Hi May08, I had some pink/brown discharge every day between 8-10 weeks. I immediately assumed the worst but had a scan at 8 and 9 weeks and baby wriggling away. Just had a mini-scan on Wednesday and baby is growing big and strong. I would defo ring and go into your hospital to get a scan to reassure you. Let us know how you get on :wv

Bleeding seems to be getting a bit stronger now so i rang my GP he told me to rest and wait and see as it may not necessarily mean a miscarriage and if im still bleeding in the morning he told me to go to A&E for an internal scan. Pray all will be ok girls O:|

I bleed for the entire 12 weeks on DD and a few times on this pregnancy. All I will say is sometimes it can take a couple of scans to detect that everything is ok , on DD couldnt get a hearbeat till 8 weeks yet on this bruser we got one at 5. Personally if you are worried I would go for a scan as it might put your mind at ease or you might be told to come back in 1 or 2 weeks and your head still wrecked! I hope everything works out ok for you!

Well girls i went ot A&E Fri evening and they did a urine test ,blood test and internal scan. According to my GP i should be 8 weeks pregnant according to the date of my last AF but im so irregular i think im 6 or 7 max. Anyway the internal scan they did on Fri evening in A&E only measured 5 weeks. The doctor told me it was one of 2 things (a) my dates were out and it was an earlier pregnancy than we thought but bleeding is not good or (b) im miscarrying. I have to go back again this evening for another blood test and have an appointment in the morning with the EPU but to be honest im expecting the worst i bled extremely heavy yesterday morning with bad back pain and bad stomach cramps all of which are signs of a miscarriage according to the doc i saw Fri night. He wasnt very nice to be honest was very matter of fact and no sympathy at all. I will let you all know exactly what the story is tomorrow after my EPU appointment in the morning.
