I am about 5 weeks pregnant with my second, but have been bleeding for the last 5 days. The blood is mostly red and thick at times, about the equivalent of an average day of my period. I've had one HCG test that came back surprisingly normal (around 2000) and am scheduled to go in for my next one tomorrow (with results the day after that). I have not had any cramping or other discomfort. It is hard to imagine a viable pregnancy after 5 days of bleeding, but in the absence of cramping, I'm not losing all hope until I get that second set of HCG results. In the meantime, the waiting is so difficult. Has anyone out there gone on to have a successful pregnancy after this amount of bleeding? If so, I would love to hear your story to help me maintain a positive attitude for the next 48 hours.

Welcome! I don't have any experience with bleeding that heavy, but I am sending you sticky vibes!

Hi there well I have 2 miscarriages and in both I bleed everyday and my hGC levels drop down like crazy so there were nothing todo but to let nature take it's course also I didn't have any cramps till the day I miscarriage. My third pregnancy I bleed but the dr put me on progesterone,aspirin and total bed rest. So I think there is hope for you2 but make sure you have at least 3 hGC test done just to be sure.
I wish you very good luck to both of you and let us know what happen.

I had severe bleeding during my pregnancy, turned out to be a hematoma on my placenta. I was sure I was having a miscariage at the time. I was put on bed rest for 6 weeks until hematoma resolved and now I have a perfect baby boy. Hope everything works out for you.

Sounds similar to what I'm going through. I have subchorionic bleeding. Ive been bleeding everyday for about a week and a half maybe 2 weeks now? I've been to my dr a couple times and am going back today/tomorrow actually. I do however have bad cramping. I was told this is more common than you think. I wish the best of luck to you! Don't get your hopes up yet!

Bleeding in the first trimester is very common. Even heavy bleeding often turns out ot be nothing more then a big scare and the baby is fine. I found this resource helpful, maybe it will help others:

Light bleeding is early pregnancy is common and it doesn't harm baby. It usually happens at about the same time that your period would have been due, and may last for a day or two. You may only notice it after you have been to the toilet and wiped. If it continues better to consult doctor. The causes of light spotting during pregnancy can be due to Breakthrough bleeding, Implantation bleeding and Vaginal or cervical infection.Here is the list of possible reasons 22 Causes of Vaginal Bleeding During Pregnancy

Just got my BFP yesterday and despite it being darker today (still faint but obviously positive - even a pregnant on a clearblue digital) I'm bleeding a medium flow like my period. I'm not in pain (a light cramp here or there) but I feel fine. I am on blood thinners but I'm scared its a CP or ectopic. I will call OBGYN as soon as they open. I really really hope everything works out! I will update you as well. Biggest hugs ever
