i'm in my 9th week, i had this last week and i was terrified too. I didn't have tummy ache or pains, just the spotting. Midwife said it was quite common to have breakthrough bleeding and not to worry, which is very hard not to.
how are you now? Laura x x

Hi I have had terrible cramps all the way through and had some pink spotting at one point - luckily I had a scan the next day and my mind was put at rest I was about 7 weeks 5 days (I think). It is worrying its ok docs/midwives saying its common that does not help you but a scan does I would push for one make it sound worse than it is (I was told to do this by the nurse practitioner) naughty but it works...why should you have to worry?
Hope you are ok hun, Flossie xx

Well if you feel you can wait ....personally I couldnt I have now had 4 scans one at 6 weeks one 2 weeks (ish) later then another at 10 weeks 5 days (then I paid private for a Nuchal Fold scan) have lost 2 in last 8 months so really really pushed you know its every womans right I think if you are not 100% give them hell....who makes these decisions anyway, makes me cross that they feel its ok to leave us ladies in this situation. Let us know how you get on..
Good luck and take care, Flossie xx

I am new to the site but I am 35 and 8 wks. pregnant with my third. I was having alot of morning sickness but fount Ginger Ale to be a Godsend. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I am not in any pain and no bleeding bleeding but my morning sickness is gone away and my boobs are not as sore as they were. Could there be a problem?

I had the same thing when I was 8weeks, I went for a scan as I had bad cramping too, but the scan showed baby was fine, and that it was all put down too my hormones peaking early and the baby was going through a growth spurt. Hope all goes well with you, and I wish you all the luck in the world xxx

Hello. Bleeding does seem to be quite common in pregnancy, but the more you worry the worse you will feel. I would personally try to get an earlier scan, but like you my EPU have made me feel like I am being a pain. All I can say is do what is best for you - if you really cannot wait until the 18th then please try to get seen earlier. I really hope things work out for you. Good luck!
