I think I may be having a miscarriage - Page 3

post #41 of 45

I'm pregnant with my first, and I'm 12 weeks 5 days now. between 5 weeks to about 8 weeks I was bleeding on and off. I had brown blood nearly every day (sometimes I would skip a day or two in between). there were a couple days that I actually had a couple of good size clots - I thought FOR SURE it was the start of a mc.

well, at 6 weeks 4 days I went to get an u/s and we saw the heartbeat! everything is fine! the baby is growing (& goodness, so am I!). my midwife thinks that in my case it was probably something to do with endometriosis (I've had it since I was 16). there are SO many different possibilities for what it could be!

everyone has different experiences, & different bodies! I, personally, wouldn't be too concerned if the blood isn't red & isn't accompanied by cramping. although, my grandma tells me she bled bright red blood for 3 days straight with my dad & was put on bed rest for a week - obviously he was fine since I'm here

anyway, keep us updated & know that you're in my thoughts!

It is very kind of you to post! Thanks for the encouragement. I have not had spotting since Monday of this week, so 4 days now without. I am really hoping that the risk of M/C has passed, although I am still cautious. I think to reassure myself, I am going to do another preg. test. Silly, perhaps, but it may give me some peace of mind.

Don't feel silly! I'm so glad to hear that things are looking good now. I've been there and it's hard, and you do whatever you need. Best wishes!

gardenmommy- I wanted to relate to you re: losing a twin. With my first pregnancy I had some spotting for a few days, maybe a week, with a bit of red, but really nothing much. When I went into the dr he said it looked like a had conceived twins but lost one.

So, happy to hear things are on the upswing for you!
