    Default Bleeding @ 8 weeks

    Hi
    I'm currently 8+1 weeks pregnant and have started bleeding

    I'm freaking out at the thought of another MC (I lost twins in June)

    Has anyone else bled at 8 weeks without MC?

    What is the bleeding like? Heavy, red, brown, light? I would go straight for a scan.
    Yes, I had bleeding and no MC.

    I bled at 9 weeks, it was a gush of bright red blood and then pink tinged discharge for a few days after, I went straight to the dr and got a referral for a ultrasound and everything was ok.

    I am now currently 24 weeks pregnant. Fx everything is ok, am thinking of you. * hugs*.

    Depends what the bleeding is like. Some women have a small period like bleed when their period would be due which would probably be nearly right having a bleed at 8 weeks.

    I bled for 5 days in week 10 and in week 11.
    I'm 34w now with no more issues.
    What's the bleeding like?
    Remember the cervix is really friable (bleeds easier) when you are pregnant with the increased blood flow, that's why I bled.
    It's most likely nothing to worry about! Bleeding the the first trimester is more common than you'd think

    Thank you everyone! Luckily everything seems ok! I had a scan and the doctor thinks I may have burst a blood vessel. Bubs is measuring correctly and the HB is strong! Phew!

    Thought I'd post in here for you but also anyone else searching late at night like I did and finding the replies not as positive as they'd like. I had bleeding, first at 7 weeks (pink) then a heavy bright red, fill a pad, bleed at 9 weeks. I thought she was gone. But both ultrasounds showed a heartbeat and 6 weeks ago little Isabelle was born and is now a very healthy little bub. Well actually not so little, she's 5.75kg at 6 weeks old! So yes, pregnancies can be fine with some bleeding, it is just people don't writer there positive experiences a lot of the time!
