When I first experienced bleeding, I was alone at home but I managed to stay calm and rush to KK. When it's finally my turn, the doctor did a scan. When she told me the baby is fine and the moment I saw the baby flickering heartbeat, I couldn't hold my tears back anymore, i cried real hard, it's tears of relief!
I can understand how you must have felt at that point of time, Maiz!
Hi Maiz, just to share that i'm now 11wks. I've frequent spotting and lots of brown discharge over the last few wks. Due to office stress, I had quite huge patch of bleeding during wk 7. Went to A&E and did the scan which shows the baby heartbeat flickering with great relief. However due to the low progestrone level, was in great danger of miscarriage, thus was given 4wks of hospital leave. During the 3rd wk of leave, i bought 5 apples and quite a huge chicken thinking to brew chicken soup. I think due to the heaviness of the stuff, I had lots of liquid brown discharge when I reach home. I have to change 2 pcs of carefree panty liner. Luckily baby heart beat still going strong. So not only do you dont walk excessive, but also dont carry "heavy" stuff. Very dangerous. Yeah, I'm feeling frustrated staying indoor. Sometimes will sneak out for a breather. But balance your act. Take care ; )
this is my 3rd pregnancy, my first 2 pregnancy is a miscarriage due to office stress and carry heavy thing at work..im about 5weeks pregnancy now and having spotting about a week plus already. usually how long will it stop?i realised everytime i got stress, i will experience the spotting. lately my work is very stress but i cannot take mc.leave maybe can try. i am so worry on this time pregnancy.have not go to see gynae yet but i have make appointment at end sept already. currently only take folic acid. not sure what else to take also.
temari, if you're really worried and the spotting have not't stop you should go KK hospital just to make sure the baby ok and the doctor there can give you hormone to strengthen your womb.
But since you have 2 miscarriage before and have spotting now, I will advise you go to hospital to check!
Heard that if you miscarriage too many times, will not easy to conceive anymore because the womb will become very weak!
Is it the work is important than baby at the moment?
Or you can discuss with your boss about your current situation....
havent posted in a while as i was admitted to hospital for severe vomitting in week 6. the baby is fine and i'm now in wk 10. the bleeding stopped while i was in hospital not sure if it was cos i wasnt allowed to move arnd at all and had to stay in bed all the time except for gg to the toilet...so maybe that does the trick!!
now the whole day sickness is manageable but still get severely nauseous at time and so not gg out much whh is killing me to but i guess i'll have no choice but to wait til the nausea stops.
temari if you're experiencing bleeding/spotting even the slightest i think its best to go see the doc as i'm still currently having hormone injections. but my bleeding/spotting has stopped my doc still insists on it just to be on the safe side. as much as it is a pain to have to go to the doc twice a week for it as long as the baby is ok i guess its all worth it
