I am 8 Weeks pregnant after miscarriage in november at 10 weeks.
i started bleeding last night after sex (was red blood & fresh) and passed a small clot, the blood is now brown.
i dont have my first scan until 5th march and midwives on 18th feb.
i am really worried after the last pregnancy. I started bleeding at this point with the last but then it got worse over the next two weeks losing big clots.
its a saturday so my doctors are not open and i am really worried about my baby.
What should i do?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Since you had bleeding after intercourse, so chances of a threatened miscarriage are always there. Take complete bed rest and avoid any strenuous activity and intercourse as intercourse in the first trimester often increases the chances of miscarriage. If the bleeding becomes severe or is associated with any cramps, then the chances of miscarriage are there. Immediate medical intervention is then required.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
