    Default bleeding

    Im freaking out a lot - yesterday afternoon I had really bad cramps to the point I could hardly stand up and then a fair bit of bleeding. Im seeing the doctor this evening, the first appointment I could get - you have to love being in the middle of nowhere! Is this normal? The bleeding stopped and I feel ok now - just really nervous that it was something bad or a m/c. Help!

    Hello MiMo,

    How far into your pregnancy are you? Bleeding can be a sign of negative things but also can be very normal. I have had bleeding while I am pregnant.

    Mimo,
    I am 9 weeks, and recently had a scare, and rushed to the hospital because I was bleeding quite heavily, along w/ cramping. I had an emergency ultrasound, and the baby was doing just fine. Seems that it was a ruptured blood vessel (from sex, mind you), and everything was ok. Good luck, and hope all is well.

    MiMo,

    Check out the article on BellyBelly (www.bellybelly.com.au) about bleeding in the pregnancy section. It has many different reasons why it can occur and explainations - might help to put your mind at more ease (if possible!).

    Mimo - I too had bleeding not long ago and it lasted a few days ( mainly brown-old blood- and a little red as well) and it totally freaked me out as well.
    I thought the worst with the ladies here giving me their positive thoughts and their own stories of bleeding.
    Apparently most of us have had this stress placed onto us.
    But anyway I raced into my Dr and asked for a hcg test and also a follow up to ensure all was well. I've already had the 1st one and all is normal ( relief)- so now Im waiting to have the second one tomorrow to confirm that the counts are indeed on the rise.
    I wont tell you not to worry because like me and the other ladies you will- but I will say that once tests have been done all could still be ok!
    We're here 4 U alright...

    MiMo,
    How did you go. i am 6 wks and woke this morning with some bleeding, but then it went away. am as paranoid as anything as my sister lost several before finally having a healthy baby. Hope it is going okay & doctor could offer some reassurance- i am booked in again for tomorrow.

    thank you so much everyone!! I had 2 blood tests and my hcg levels are increasing and the Dr was really excited to tell me I was still pregnant O He has booked me in for an ultrasound this friday - I will be just 9 weeks and I am crossing my fingers that everything will be fine.

    thanks everyone for your messages!!

    Everything is cool, the ultrasound was great and I got to see my tiny flickering blob - the nurse swears its a baby!!

    I feel silly for worrying so much now.
