• Massive clot with sudden heavy bleeding 2 wks after giving birth to 2nd child. I felt something sliding out?

    so rushed back into the house and saw a huge clot (about the size of a small fist) and then loads of dark red blood. Since giving birth I have barely bled at all, about the size of 50p piece all day every day then all of a sudden this huge clot came out followed by loads of red blood. It was dripping but only lasted a few minutes max. It then... show more

It was dripping but only lasted a few minutes max. It then tapered off. I was advised to go to A&E which I did, they took two lots of bloods and two swabs. Since that episode, I have stopped bleeding completely (though had a 20sec episode of a bit of blood again when I popped to the loo when I got home which then stopped!). I have EXTREMELY mild cramps, so mild you wouldn't even notice them but I'm looking out for things! Has anyone else experienced this?? I haven't rested since giving birth as already have a two year old and I felt fantastic so guess I overdid it. Just feeling that clot and all that sudden bleeding really freaked me out and i don't want it to happen again.

  • Leak in concrete floor...our pipe in the screeding burst and the whole of the concrete floor is wet.?

    Horrible musty smell in the conservatory. We got rid of the carpet because it went mouldy and yesterday bought laminate to replace it with. However, currently we have two fan heaters and windows open as we cannot afford to spend £300 to hire a dehumidifier for a week! How long before we can put the laminate down!?

  • I received a call on my UK mobile phone with a dialling code +55. The caller says they used a phone card?

    I looked it up online and the call appeared to have come from Brazil. The caller insists they were in the UK and used a calling card. Is that possible? Vodafone network told me that the call was from overseas.

  • 18 weeks miscarriage and going back to work...?

    I delivered my baby yesterday through a miscarriage and had surgery to remove the placenta as that didn't come out naturally.

This was my first miscarriage after a healthy full term pregnancy with my son so obviously my hubby & I are completely devastated, especially as it was so late. I called my work today to let them know (I work for Boots) and asked if I could have the rest of the week off. I work Tues & Thrs mornings and all day Sat. My manager said absolutely for tomorrow but asked if I could let him know about Saturday. He's expecting me back next week. I feel this is too soon...I want to spend more time with my family...am I being unreasonable????

Lying down in bed in certain positions makes it worse. Pls help, i'm nearly in tears from the pain.

He's been tired and ready for another nap almost half an hour after waking up but he's really hard to settle. He's usually out for the count with a dummy (or even without) but he's suddenly been really 'funny'. He's perfectly happy and content otherwise. He's on solids now (started weaning last week) as he was 9lbs at birth and now 19lbs!! No way he was going to wait, so it can't be that...any ideas?! I heard of a 16 week growth spurt...anyone else experienced their baby like this?

  • When Jesus says He will return at an hour that will take people by suprise, what sort of hour do you imagine?

    that will be? While i know not even He knows when it will be, the wording interests me - do you think it will be suprising because it could be in the next year or so? When people just dont expect that? Because we have all the signs of prophecy being fulfilled so surely it won't be that suprising....answers welcome! Preferably CHristians who... show more
