May be TMI in here for some people so just a little warning! so I had a spot of bleeding last Wednesday, and went for an early scan last Thursday and was told to come back in 2 weeks. Had a bit more bleeding yesterday, again was enough for one wipe and that's it but it was still some sort of bleeding so contacted EPU and went in yesterday for another scan where I saw baby and heartbeat, and she said everything seemed perfectly normal and we went ahead and booked a 12 week scan. I was then told that whilst I was there it was a good idea to be examined by a doctor to check my cervix is ok, which I agreed to and had the exam. It was quite painful for me and the plastic cone (used to open the vagina) had to be inserted and opened/closed twice as the first time she didn't have a torch to hand to see. This was quite painful for me especially the second time she took it out as it had to be slightly pushed in more before being closed but I just assumed it was normal. So I was on cloud9 yesterday after my scan and seeing the babies heartbeat, to then wake up this morning and had a lot of red, heavy bleeding. No pain whatsoever, but I was sat for a good 5 minutes just continuously wiping with more and more blood coming and had 2 clots in with all this. After that I had spotting for about an hour and then it's all stopped, but I phoned my EPU of course as it was enough for me to think I had miscarried. They basically said as there was no pain they aren't very worried but they do want to see me back again and I need to go back there on Monday, but was basically told if I miscarry then I miscarry, doesn't matter whether I'm home or in their care. Here's my question though, the cervical examination with a swab taken, could this be the cause of my bleeding?
