Bleeding at almost 9 weeks and terrified

Will be 9 weeks tomorrow but started bleeding lightly last night.  I'm 45 years ago and terrified I am miscarrying.  As it's weekend no one can do anything to help me!

There really is nothing anyone can do.  *if* it's a miscarriage, it can't be stopped.  However some women bleed during pregnancy and go on to have a healthy baby.

That happened to me at 8wks, and it was a lot of blood. I am 41 and pregnant with baby 6 and this has never happened before. Unfortunately it happened on the day I was throwing a baby shower for my son, so there was no taking it easy for me. I had to wipe my tears and just assumed I was miscarrying. The bleeding continued for weekend and I was sure it was over. Monday when I went to the Dr there was a heartbeat and I am now 15wks with a baby boy. My advice is to try and not panic and go to your labor and delivery and they will check you. Just tell them you are high risk and go straight there. I hope everything turns out ok for you.

Thanks so much for the comments.   Bleeding stopped again now.  Been told to rest until Monday and they will scan me next week.  Feel this is my last chance for a baby and feel certain I have lost it. Trying to stay positive but it's not easy. Keep reading the high risks at my age.  Crazy thing is I paid for a private scan just 2 days ago for reassurance all was OK.  It was and there was a heartbeat. Them just a day later I start bleeding

I am sorry I was on vacation ~ It could be an implantation bleed. At this point though the normally only wait and see with a possible sonogram. Have you been able to see your doc?

Thanks dolphin8808.  Been an horrendous few days.  Still bleeding heavily and still in a lot of pain. Been put on codeine phosphate but it only takes the edge off.  Emotionally I need to keep busy otherwise I just cry all the time but physically I can't do anything as it makes the bleeding and pain worse. At a complete loss as to what to do right now.  Even blaming myself having done research.  I used fertilaid to conceive due to my age and now read that it has been linked to miscarriages....but without it is wouldn't have fallen anyway:(

Don't blame yourself for the loss. God has a plan for everyone, knowing the number of hairs we have on our head and the days we'll live. If it is meant for you to bare a child you will but please remember and KNOW that it IS NOT YOUR FAULT!!

So sorry for your loss. I'm praying for you. God knows our needs and sees our heart. Most say that after a miscarriage its easier to conceive. I know that feeling if wanting a baby and not being able to have one. I hope you get your baby.
