Hey all. I am so discouraged. I bled heavily last night when I went to the rr to urinate. It was like I was starting my period. I had no cramps and it only happened that one time. I called my doctor and he said to relax and come to see him Friday. (Friday is my first apt.) He said that if it was a miscarriage, there is nothing I could do to prevent it. He said that he has seen women bleed and go on to have healthy pregnancies. Please offer a little comfort or advice. I am so depressed that this pregnancy has ended.

Hi imamommy, I would just follow your doctor's advice to relax, especially if it was just this one time... keep us updated, but try not to worry.

imamommy - I hope that maybe I can try an ease your mind (a little) I had the same thing happen on New Years around 1130pm at work I went to the bathroom there was alot of blood I started freaking out I went to the hospital (they were worthless) they located the heartbeat we went thru IVF so immediately a few hours after going to the hospital we met with our RE who did an U/S told us the baby is fine I have a subchorionic hematoma and I will have to bleed it out. Its just like a period but there is cramping. I am now on bedrest and not working. It comes its spurts it will stop for a few days and then today started again. They say in 95% of the cases it reabsorbs itself and bleeds out. So also as long as there is no tissue and clotting you are probably ok. How far along are you? I am 9 weeks. I have been going for u/s everyweek sometimes 2 times a week. I go again tomorrow. It hasnt gotten any smaller but as long as the baby is fine I will live with the bedrest. So I dont know if thats your case but I wanted to give a little more insight on that. Remember if anything is brown blood its "old" and thats good too. Keep us posted good luck to you.

i've been bleeding on and off (red blood) since about 7 weeks and i'm now doc seems to think i'm fine. i've heard my baby's heartbeat and seen him/her on the ultrasound, so i know they are alive and well. it is very discouraging to see blood however it could be from a number of things, like s_x or a broken blood vessel from straining to go to the bathroom. relaxing is great advice from your doc......hope everything is okay for you!

Well luckily you didn't have cramping, and the bleeding has stopped. Good signs! I had one-time bleeding at 6w and now i'm almost at 15w and the baby looks great. Some women bleed thru-out their pregnancy, some bleed after s_x or a BM... or bleeding could be from hemorroids even. Good luck and keep us posted! :o)

Thanks to all of you for your response. I am 7 weeks today. I haven't bled anymore. Maybe everything is ok. I have be relaxing ALOT. My husband and I are so excited about this baby. I go to the doctor tomorrow and I'll keep you posted on what is going on. Thanks again.

UPDATE EVERYONE.........I went to the doctor today for my first apt. I am so relieved. I am still pregnant. 7 weeks 2 days. The baby's heart rate was 144 BPM. I am so happy. Thank you all for the encouraging words. He said our chances for a miscarriage dropped to 3% now that we have seen the heart.


ROBYN - January 19

Oh thats absolutely wonderful news I am so happy for you take it easy. When is your next appt. We went for another u/s yesterday I am 10 weeks the heartbeat was 179 and we saw the little peanut moving all over the place it was incredible little arm/leg buds just moving around. Obviously way too early to feel anything but when I do I think I am in for it. Anyway congrats again its a great relief.
