Please help me. I am about 5 or 6 weeks pregnant. I just found out recently. I took 3 hpt and it all came back positive. Went to the doctor to confirm. Took two urine tests at the clinic and it came back negative, so I had to do a blood test. My hcg was 26. They wanted me to do another one to make sure that it goes up. Went up to 32. Then Sunday night I was slighty bleeding. I was scared so I rushed to the hospital. The doctor told me that I was on the process of havinga miscarriage and this would be my second one in less then a year. So, today I had to do another blood test to see that my hcg went down. I went to go see my doctor and he said that it is up to 50. So I am pretty surprised because I thought that I was having a miscarriage and expecting my hcg to go down. They did an ultrasound to make sure that I don't have an ectopic pregnancy but they couldn't find anything. Not even in my uterus. They say that I might still be too small to see anything. Did anyone have bleeding like a period during their first trimester and had a healthy pregnancy and baby. I really want this baby, but scared that something might be wrong.

All I can say is relax. Stressing isn't helping you at all. I would call your DR if you are still worried.

Your hcg is not rising enough for the pregnancy to be viable. It should double at least every 48 hours. I don't think this pregnancy is going to stick ufortunately.

long as you have no pains and clots-you are fine,this has happened to me,and is happening to me once more.
take it easy,all is well.
you can have quite low hcg levels and still be ok,i know because i have 3 children,they were all low hcg,so no worries there.

love to you xx

My mom had regual period like bleeding through out her entire first pregnancy, and eveything turned out fine. In fact, my sister(moms first) also has bleeding for the first five months, so she didn't even know she was pregnant until she went to the hospital because of back pain...everything turned out fine for her as well. I know its easier said than done, but try not to stress too much.

Well in my experience, I have had a few of those pregancies that were not really pregnancies. Let me explain, 1 egg out of every 4 eggs is empty, nothing can live out of it. Sometimes they still get conceived with sperm and then your body reacts as though you really are pregnant even though the egg is not alive itself. It can be mostly detected with low HCG and a negative ultrasound. I've had a few of them and they suck, but at least you know that there was no baby in the first place so you didn't loose anyone. Well it's how I see it, it makes it easyer to take. I dosen't mean you'll never conceive or have a baby. It just sometime happens. If that is what you have. Has the doctor given you any idea what it could be?

I am 5 weeks pregnant and I have been having bleeding off and on for two weeks. Sometimes its heavier and sometimes its lighter. I rarely get cramps and when I do they aren't bad. This is nothing like my normal period so I have no idea what is going on. I went to the hospital two weeks ago and they said suspected miscarriage. But my hormone levels have gone up. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow, so hopefully we'll know one way or the other. But I'm really scared too. I don't want to lose this baby. I hope everything turns out okay for you. You are in my prayers.

I am reading this thread with fear but looking for hope. I've had two miscarriages and am pregnant again approximately five or six weeks along. I did not keep a record if menstruation for April but I may have conceived around the 18th.
I started getting shoulder pains like I do when I have my period and slight periodic pelvic pain and twinges of cervical pain. After pregnancy was confirm I was advised to have my yearly exam as I was overdue. I always tend to bleed after Pap so I was nervous the Pap could create a problem. I was assured spotting post pap us normal and should not cause miscarriage.
It has been over a week and I have been bleeding and spotting intermittently ever since. Checking HcG my original two numbers multiplied a good amount now I went for another one. They said it has gone up but not as much as they would expect according to the calculation of how far along we thought I am. I needed to go back again today for another HcG check but the lab closed before I could get there. I'm so anxious to make sure this is a viable pregnancy.
I wish I could stop focusing on it but I'm so emotional right now and I want this so badly. Just please let everything be ok.

I had a big scare around 4 this morning. I had a few Sharp shooting pain in my lower abdomin. Then 30 min later, had intercourse and it felt a lot more wet than usual. I was shocked when I turned the lights on. Lots of blood. it has stopped. I spoke with someone at the ER over the phone. They said if the bleeding and pain continue to go into the ER. Im worried. I'm only 4weeks along. And my first appointment isnt until Aug 11th.

I wouldn't tell someone that cause no one actually knew what was going on and she needs to stay stress free.. I had heavy bleeding before my first baby Dr said it was a miscarriage, but a week later i was experiencing morning sickness got a blood test i was 4 weeks pregnant ,at 11 weeks saw my baby for the first time she is a year old I had no complications she was born healthy, I was fine too no problems.. I'm pregnant with my second same thing it's different with everyone.. Dr. checked me out said it's normal some times women have a light period right before the egg has actually implanted..
