Ask The Midwife: Am I Losing My Baby?
If you have some brown discharge or a small amount of blood loss you may be concerned that you are losing your baby. Our midwife explains.
I am 10 weeks pregnant and yesterday saw some brown/pink discharge when I wiped. This was a couple of hours after intercourse. I have not seen any since. After having two miscarriages this year, I am very stressed. Could this be the start of another loss?
Our midwife Melissa says:
It is difficult to say what this might have been. It could be some bleeding from the surface of your cervix, say from a polyp, or it could be the start of a miscarriage, but this seems unlikely from what you have written.
The best advice I can give is to see your midwife or doctor who can run some tests and examine you to determine what is happening and put your mind at ease.
