    Default Spotting at 9 weeks and 5 days

    My daughter was 9 weeks and 6 days when she went for her dating scan and they measured baby at 8 weeks and 2 days, the heartbeat was seen and all looked good. She is now 9 weeks and 5 days and has had some brown spotting. She has had a miscarriage and then one healthy pregnancy. I am very worried about her, any info would be truly appreciated

    Seeing the heartbeat is great Unfortunately some women do get bleeding in pregnancy and go on to have a healthy baby but some women do not but I couldn't really comment either way in any particular case. Has your daughter spoke with her doctor since the scan and bleeding?

    I had bleeds with bothy pregnancies between 8-10 weeks. Needing a pad, liner wasn't enough. When I queried it Dr said uterus goes from size of an orange to a grapefruit by week 10 so the stretching sometimes causes a bleed. Hope that's the case with your daughter too xx

    This can go both ways here.
    The first scan may have been inaccurate showing bub to be 11 days behind and infact may not have been as small as they say
    Or the bub has unfortunately stopped growing at 8w2d and the heartbeat remains until it goes down about 10 beats a min per day until you start to miscarry
    It is confusing when women see a heartbeat
    It's really common like in my case that bub had stopped growing at 6 weeks but heartbeat remained for another 12 days
    Hope it was just inaccurate in scan and it all turns out ok for her xxx

    Wow I didn't realise that.. I really hope that's not the case. When they took her back 11 days I was worried and now with the spotting it's scary. She hasn't seen the doctor again yet and the spotting seems to have eased off, it happened over two days and was brown. Hopefully it will all be ok and it won't come back...
