I miscarried in October, I should have been 9 weeks but baby had stopped growing at 6.5. I got a BFP on Sunday and have been ok since then. However, this afternoon I had some spotting (bright red) so I called the Dr. She said it's too early to see anything on an u/s but they did schedule me to come in for one a week from Friday (I'll be 6.5 weeks then). And she added that I should take it easy and call them if it gets worse.
Anyone had this happen so early and been ok? When I started spotting last time I found so many sites/people saying that it's normal to have some spotting early on - but for me it wasn't normal so i'm terrified it's happening again.
I wish I had something reassuring to say. All I know is my own experience which is if there's blood, it's over. But, I have a friend who was quite the opposite. Had some bleeding that was quite concerning, but deliverd a healthy girl after 9 months. Every BODY is different, and every pregnancy is different. There's not much you can do right not but try to calm your nerves and think positively but at the same time be prepared for the worst.
Also, drink some raspberry leaf tea (found at the health food store, alone or in a combo "Pregnancy Tea"). It strengthens the uterus and is widely used during pregnancy to prevent m/c and ease delivery.
I had bleeding with my first and went on to have a healthy baby. I also had bleeding with my 3rd and at the time she was ok (this was at 9 weeks) but I went on to lose her at 20 weeks. The perninatologist that I saw afterwards told me bleeding is never a good sign in pregnancy. It can mean problems now or problems later (like I had with my 2nd). However some women do go on to have healthy pregnancies with bleeding.
My SIL bled a lot in her 1st trimester with her 2nd child (she didnt bleed at all with the 1st) and she thought it was over, but she just gave birth to a healthy baby girl last month, so it isnt always a bad thing.

I am sorry for your previous loss.....that is exactly what happened to me. I had spotting with DS around 8 weeks and he was fine. This time around for a whole week I spotted. I was in my 5th week I think. It was more like red tinged mucous and I even passed a tiny blood clot. My baby was fine and the doctor felt it was most likely continued implantation. Good luck, and I hope that everything turns out to be OK.

I am so sorry for your loss...and for your present situation. Telling you not to worry, that it won't do any good, will DEFINITELY not do you any good. (How do you not worry?)
Like some of the other ladies said, in my own experience, bleeding has spelled doom, BUT I know plenty of women who have bled who go on to deliver perfectly healthy babies. My aunt bled worse during pregnancy than she did during her periods and had 2 very healthy babies. My SIL had spotting all the way through her pregnancy, and OH! was her baby a healthy one!!! Bleeding isn't always the end. I hope that this pregnancy is very different from your last one and that you get GREAT news at your appointment! Please keep us updated!
