Hello all, I am new here.

I am 5 weeks pregnant today and called the doctor to report off and on lower back pain (sometimes severe) and brown scanty spotting that I noticed for the past 2 days. Doctor asked me to come in right away.

She did an ultra-vaginal u/s and did not see anything except a thickened endometrium. She said it could be too early and took blood for labs. Results will be in on Friday. But, I am anxious. Has anyone had that experience and then seen baby a couple of weeks later in u/s? I have a 4 year old son (had such a smooth pregnancy), and a miscarriage at 6.5 weeks last July. So, I am not sure what my body is up to now!!!

Any input will be useful. Thanks!

Hi there!

I'm sorry you're going through such stress. At as early on in your pregnancy as you are, it's very hard to see anything with ultrasound. It's common not to see anything right now.

Brown spotting is also ok and usually normal. I spotted pink/brown from week 5-17..and have a healthy DD to show for it

Good luck. I hope that the rest of your pregnancy goes smooth!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

Thanks for responding. Yes, it is stressful, especially after a miscarriage. I am trying to remain positive. But, the lack of any symptoms today is disappointing. Thanks for the encouraging words...

Hi, im also going thru the same thing, im having brown spotting got denied twice for a ultrasound, im 5 weeks 4 days as of today, went and had my hcg tested twice one said 200 the next said 134. But everything is seeming to be ok, i have no cramps, my hips hurt, i have alot of constipation, sweating alot which turns into me breaking out all over my face, i hope im not misscarrying.

Wannahave -Totally possible to have baby proof to show up later on as some babies like to hide up,towards back or implant later which takes it difficult to get a good view and pleasse share with us when you get you get your hcg drawn. I also am sorry for your previous loss it can make you feel like your pacing about or wringing your hands,or heart racing in throat when you go to Dr.'s

Hope2beMom- Your first hcg level was 200 then dropped to 134 ? Did the Doctors say anything to you about this ? Did they ever check your hcg again after it drop to 134 ?
