Hi ladies. I've gotta admit, I'm going a whole lot of bonkers over here. This will be my 4th child. I'm a c-section mom (so maybe scar tissue tearing? It's been almost 3 years since my last pregnancy...Does that happen??). Thank God, up above, to my knowledge, I've never had a miscarriage. I've been spotting for the last 3 out of 4 days(Only 1 pregnancy I bled during my first trimester, my last, but he was a-okay and it was only one day with a small gush. Went to the ER, saw his heartbeat and we were all good.) but we've been dtd those three days too. I called my doctor, she said to go to the ER to get checked out just to be procautious because during those days I was also expieriancing cramping but hey, it might just be my ligaments and uterus expanding, you know? It hasn't been as bad as I read it should be. I haven't filled a pad AT ALL, the blood was pink/brown/black, and the pain isn't crippling. I also read your hcg drops rapidly. I don't want to go to the ER because if I am miscarrying, I'd rathier do it natrually and in the comfort of my own home rathier than being poked and prodded not to mention, the doctors can't stop it anyway. I did take another hpt and the line hasn't faded.
Any input you ladies can give me would be really appreciated. Like I said, I'm kind of driving myself crazier over here. Thank you in advance....
PS! I'm about 5 weeks today.

I haven't experienced any bleeding, but did have a good amount of pain - not terrible, but uncomfortable. Since I've had 2 c-sections and make a lot of scar tissue anyway, my doctor said that it's to be expected since scar tissue doesn't stretch the way that normal tissue does.
With my chemical (the only loss so far), it was really early, about 4 weeks and 1 day, and that involved really bad cramping and tons of clotty bleeding (like needing Motrin for pain, plus tampon and pad together)...it was bad enough that there would have been no mistaking that for anything else.
Light bleeding/spotting can be caused by so many things - according to my doctor, it's nothing to worry about unless it's accompanied by a good amount of pain.
