I'm 6-7 weeks pregnant with naturally concieved triplets and yesterday I had some bleeding. I had some slight cramping and discovered a small pool of red blood. It went in for a few minutes... Maybe half ounce of blood in total with no tissue or clots. I went to the ER and after hours of waiting I was told that their only available u/s was bedside and might not pick them up and they didn't want to scare me. They did say that's betas were 55,000 and I should get them checked tomorrrow. I don't really know much about the beta thing beyond that it should double in the beginning. No bleeding since just tiny dark brown bits when I wipe... Sorry TMI!!!!! But I am still so nervous. This is my first pregnancy. Can anyone give me some advice?

Totally normal! Bleeding is really, really common in multiple pregnancies, and most of the time if there are no severe cramps or clots/tissue, everything is fine. It happened to me and I freaked out about it, but it was all okay.

Hang in there!

Bleeding is so stressful! I'd go into my OB as soon as possible and see what is happening. Sometimes they can't find the cause of first trimester bleeding. With my first I had quite a lot of bleeding that ended quickly. The OB couldn't find a cause and figured it was a capillary that burst from all the extra blood. It was scary, but she was just fine.

Good luck to you! Let us know what the Dr says!

I'm 10 weeks pregnant with twins and I have spotted on several occasions. Nothing more than wiping really but enough for someone with a history of miscarriages to panic about. So far the babies are great. I can't give a why but with my other pregnancies that went full term I didn't have any spotting. Talk with your doctor though just to make sure everything is good. Congratulations.

I had spotting around 6 weeks with my first pregnancy. It stopped and ended up being nothing to worry about. I was on the phone with my doctor's office right away though.
