Bababoom - please dont worry. All the books will tell you this is normal, most of us in July thread have had it along the way, its not something you need to worry about unless you are seeing bright red/pink blood. So try and relax. Look it up online, you will find lots of info - all pretaining to the fact that its very common. Its often referred to as 'old blood' also. Its probably like what you get at the sart /end of your period, if so, dont worry.

Hey Bababoom Please dont worry, it is likely nothing. However, I would suggest that you try and get a scan done, and ask your doctor to monitor your HCG levels (I'm sure he's going to do this anyway). I'll be praying it all works out ok for you hun. I had the same thing, so please feel free to PM me if you need to chat. MrsNov, :xxx :xxx

bababoom - you poor pet, I really feel for you. I had brown bleeding at about 6 weeks and my GP told me to go straight to the emergency dept. of Holles Street and they were great in there. They did an internal scan and could see sac and fetal pole but unfortunately couldnt see heartbeat. They had me back 1 week later and there was heartbeat fluttering away thank god. Since then I have not had any more brown discharge/bleeding so hopefully you will be fine. :lvs

Dont bother with your Doc, ring your local EPAU and go over to them. They will assess you and do scan. The same happened to me and I rang Doc...she was on lunch though so instead of waiting for her to call back I went over to hospital. They told me I was right to go straight over as Doc can do nothing! Fingers crossed all will be ok. :xox

I rang the Coombe at half four and she said the early pregnancy unit finished at 4, I said ok thanks. Maybe I should have explained what was wrong with me though. My doctor called me back tonight, said its old blood but if it gets bright or my cramps get worse to go to Casualty. She said she'd try and sort out a scan at the hospital near her practice (my doctor is from where my parents live so not really local to me anymore.) if I wanted but I told her I'd one booked for Sunday anyway. No more blood since anyway and the cramps are no worse than they've been since I got my BFP. They're gone now too. Thanks for the replies. Roll on Sunday.
