Afternoon Ladies,
Last night while on a plane I unfortunately started bleeding at 6 weeks pregnant.
Today I booked my GP to have bloods done prior to the bleeding to confirm pregnancy. They took my bloods today and then have me planned to take again in 2 days time to check hormone levels. I haven't had any cramping. I just feel really drained from crying alot and being upset and I have a huge headache that I can't kick.
My doc said there isn't much that can be done but wait until all bloods are back.
Literally 2 days ago I felt pregnant, nauseous and like a baby was in my belly... Today I feel empty 😢
Has any one been through a similar thing? I assume I am miscarrying 😢😢😢

Bleeding is common in early pregnancy and it is extremely hard to cope with emotionally, but there is nothing to do but wait. There are many, many success stories of bleeding which did not end in miscarriage. I had bleeding 3 times during my first trimester of my first baby. I really hope you get reassuring news from the blood tests. And at 6 weeks you could have a scan within the next week or so as well. A heartbeat can often be seem from 6 weeks (although not always).

I’m 20 weeks pregnant at the moment and have had three huge bleeds with this pregnancy. Think gushing blood (TMI, obviously). This was at 5 and 6 weeks, and scans after each bleed showed everything was normal. They couldn’t even tell where the bleeding was coming from. Can you have a scan to rule out an ectopic? At 6 weeks if all is well they’ll be able to see the pregnancy sack and possibly even the fetal pole (baby) and heartbeat (depending on where in week 6 you are). It might give you some certainty as to what is happening.

I had some spotting and cramping around that time with my first pregnancy - everything was fine other than DD was born 7 weeks prem.  But all good.

Second pregnancy I had what seemed like a full period.  I didn't know I was pregnant, I thought it was my first period - heavy cramping, quite a bit of blood.  I was still breasfeeding and DD was about 8 months old, so I hadn't had a period prior.  

A few weeks later I found out I was 8 weeks pregnant!  So rather than that being a period, it was actually a bleed at about 6 weeks pregnant.   Surprise!!!!!

I know it's hard.  It could be bad news, or it could be actually fine.  Your doc is right - there is nothing you can do, other than be kind to yourself and wait.  

All the best!

I had big gushes of bright red bleeding at 6 weeks pregnant. Then had a scan and baby was there with heartbeat. The bleeding then turned to brown for a few days, and I had brown spotting for almost 3 weeks.

I did so much reading over this period and it seems as though bleeding can be a common and sometimes unexplainable pregnancy symptom

I am 23 weeks pregnant now. Hoping that it's a good news story for you too

Are you the poster that took something for severe gastro last night?
If so, did you keep your fluids up and did you see a chemist. I think you said you took something for it? Hope you're okay.

Sure am

I didn't take anything other than what the chemist suggested and that was TravaCalm with Ginger for the nausea and Hydralyte. I feel such better now and no more runs... but now I'm bleeding 😢😢😢

Oh my.
Wishing the best outcome for you.
Hope your numbers continue to rise.
A headache was not a good sign for me, but everyone is different. I have heard lots of stories regarding early bleeding with good outcomes.
All the best.

I went yesterday for a blood test and have another tomorrow to check levels. On Monday I will get results but I know I've miscarried. There is too much blood and I feel empty inside

Please seek medical advise ASAP.
Present to your nearest Emergency Department.
It could possibly be an ectopic pregnancy.

Please call an ambulance, OP. As others have said, that level of pain could indicate an ectopic.
