That's heaps @lineyb73, I'll definitely try all of the numbers I have for him and my other FS tomorrow morning before my Clexane. x
@Ladydee I'm so sorry this is happening. I had a pager number for warren for after hours use but we are interstate so I don't have it with me. I'm sure someone else might have it. Otherwise the qfg nurses should get in touch with him for you and he might call you back.
Go to QFG on Little Edward Street, Spring hill (number 55). There are nurses there until 9am I think taking blood for people's cycles so they can definitely help! I showed up one Sunday morning and they called Wazza for me immediately and I spoke to him and he sorted me out!
@Ladydee oh hun, I hope it's just a bit of light bleeding. I may be wrong but I think QFG is closed until after new year?! But I have Wazzas emerg number and will pm it to you. Try that. Obviously best to get things checked out asap to adjust your protocol if need be. We're all cheering for you hun.

What do you ladies think....I called his rooms and they said they are closed until the 5th. I called QFG and a nurse there said he or his nurse would call me tomorrow and to stay on everything including Clexane and aspirin but she wasn't 100% sure as sometimes he changed his "rules" for different patients . Bed rest today and no work tomorrow if I have another bleed.
I haven't called my other clinic as they don't know all of the drugs I'm on but he is my obstetrician. They do know I'm on Clexane (though they think I'm on a lesser dose), should I double check with them about injecting this mornings dose?
Argh, why did this have to happen on a Sat/Sunday!!!
If it was me I would stay on everything prescribed until I heard otherwise but if you are worried and can call thr other dr to ask then definitely do it for peice of mind
I was just having a check on this thread cause I'm pregnant with a Wazza miracle and saw your posts @Ladydee. I have had many huge bleeds this pregnancy and bub is still going just fine at 23 weeks. When I had my first big bleed at 8 weeks I was seen by Dr Salisbury as Warren was on holidays. Like you I had already seen a happy baby and a happy heartbeat. He took me off the clexane, aspirin, feldene and fish oil as he didn't want the bleeding to build any more momentum than it already had. He said that there wasn't much more that could be done apart from no working, sex, heavy lifting and to go on very light duties/bed rest. Despite my huge bleed (flooding pads, undies, pants, bed etc) he was optimistic as the bleeding was coming from the edge of the placenta and draining underneath the baby.
I bled from 8 weeks to 16 weeks and then from about a weeks ago I started bleeding again. At 11 weeks I left puddles at the Mater Private emergency. Baby couldn't care less and is just fine.
I'm not advocating for you to stop drugs anything against advice but just thought I'd share my similar experience. Big hugs, it is horrendously hard
Hi Ladydee. So sorry to read of your bleed. Likewise I had a bleed at 6.5 weeks and then a huge pad soaking one at 17.5 weeks and was scared sh!tless.
My my first bleed was on a Sunday and I just rocked up at Warren's rooms. Fortunately, for me it wasn't during a holiday period. Warren kept me on every drug, but at that time I was only on 20 mg of Clexane. He also prescribed Cyclocapron to stop micro vascular bleeding. My scan showed a subchorionic haemorrhage both times. Thankfully my little man is now 20 months old. i was also ordered two weeks of bed rest and Valium to calm myself and my uterus (prevents contractions).
The Mater Mothers has an early pregnancy unit, you may wish to pop in there for some well earned reassurance. Thinking of you and your belly bean. Xx
I second this post. I had bleeding all through my first trimester and Warren kept me on everything and added complete bed rest (as in don't even get up to make toast) cyclocapron and Valium. I'm holding my little miracle right now. Hang in there and lots of prayers for you x
Thanks ladies xxx I was feeling a little more positive today with no more bleeding but then I've had another bleed this evening but this time it is with a achey lower back (which I've had before other losses) and a few mild contraction-type tightenings.... not all that painful but definitely more than the usual early pregnancy ones so now I'm a bit miserable and struggling to remain hopeful. Everything was going so well and now it's all gone to sh!t. I have a scan with my Ob tomorrow morning so I guess that will reveal all
