Spotting Mombie+3 3 kids; That place, Pa, United States 3191 posts

I'm 6 weeks 4 days and just went to the bathroom and noticed spotting. I know it can be normal in early pregnancy but I'm cramping also. At my 5 week ultrasound they only saw an empty gestational sac. I'm not going to rush to the er, I know there isn't anything they can do for me. Should I message my dr office and let them know and ask if they can call me in the morning?

If you are worried, you could always go to the ER. They will likely do an ultrasound. It may make you feel better. From experience, I was in the same boat my last pregnancy. He's two months old today. Try not to worry too much. Spotting can be normal.

Spotting CAN be normal, I spotted with DD2 and DD3, I also cramped..even without the spotting. I wouldn't go to the ER, I would lay back and try to relax a bit. See how it is In the AM, if not better/worse I'd call your doctor.

Well I've had a good cry, because I automatically assume the worst. I'm going to try to sleep, and pray it just stops.

I had some spotting at 5 and 10 weeks with my last pregnancy.  I was so worried I was losing that pregnancy. My baby boy will 7 weeks on Thursday.

Last night it was brown, now it's brown with some red. I don't think I'm going to get good news.

Yes, call your OB if it's still going on. The ER will diagnose a threatened miscarriage and refer you to your OB. Some won't even do an u/s anymore, just blood work and referral. Good luck, hopefully it's nothing!

I definitely don't think it's nothing. It's getting heavier.

Definitely let your doctor know.  I had period like bleeding and seriously bad cramping around the same time in this pregnancy and I swear that I just KNEW it was a miscarriage.   I went for an ultrasound a couple days into the bleeding, at 6 weeks 5 days and saw baby and the heartbeat.  Fingers crossed it's nothing.  <3

Call your OB if it's getting heavier. I went to the ER once, never again!

I would wait for your doctor. I spotted quite a bit with my healthy pregnancies and everything was just fine.

I got an appointment for today at 1:45, but I'm not too optimistic.
