Post subject: 6-8 weeks pregnant and bleeding
Last week I found out I was pregnant. On Wednesday I started bleeding, it's brown and looks sticky, sorry if that's tmi. I am wearing a sanitary towel, but its not leaking out, it's more just when I wipe. I went to the doctors and unfortunately it was most unhelpful and ambiguous. I have my first scan booked but its not until 19th December and I just cannot stop fretting. Any advice or has anyone else experience similar symptoms? Thanks x

Don't fret! Bleeding can be as normal as it can be abnormal in pregnancy! I know a few ladies who have bled all the way through and I, myself bled at 7 weeks, and then several times up until around 5 months! It happens, my girly is perfectly fine!
Also, I had fresh blood, brown blood, and completely pouring out of you blood, none made any difference

I bled at 5 weeks - the same as you - small amounts of brown blood, it turned out to be nothing and I now have a beautiful 7 week old! I think you should be more worried if it is fresh red blood and clots - if you are worried go back to the dr or A&E! I went straight to A&E as I was away from home and managed to get a scan the next day!
fingers crossed for you!
