So the last day of my period was 01/10/10. I took a pregngnacy test around the 11th of Feb and it was positive. My cycles have been running at 23 0r 25 days for about 3-4months so I was pretty sure I was pregnant. So by those numbers I should be 8 weeks and 4 days pregnant, Monday night I had a very small amount of spotting, not even enough to cover a panty liner, anyway this scared me because this is what I saw when I had my Molar pregancy. Anyway I called the dr. and had an ultrasound done on Tuesday, All she could see was a gestational sac and a yolk sac?? Also she said I was only measuring at about 6 weeks pregnant, She said it definately was not a molar pregnancy.. but it could be 1 of two things. Either Iam really 6 weeks along because of my early cycle history or... the baby is not developing. Iam going for an ultrasound ina week. Has this happened to anyone else and should I be worried? I have not had any abdominal cramping.. and only had the one incidence of spotting.

I haven't had your experience, but I do know that sometimes after sex while pregnant you can spot. You may not notice till the next morning. I have the opposite with my periods. I go six weeks between periods and may not be as far along as we originally thought. This caused me a little concern when at 10.5 weeks we didn't find the heart beat, yet my doctor is unconcerned. Don't worry until your doctor tells you to. I am praying for you and your baby and I wish you the best of luck. Please let us know how it goes!

It is very hard because our angel would have been born next month . Not a day goes by I do not think of the lost baby or worry about this one .
Hang in there !!!! I know it is hard .

Just wanted to let everyone know I thank you for all ur prayers and thoughts and comments! I had an ultrasound today and it showed a baby, but the heart was not developing..so sadly I have to have a D& C on Friday. I hope maybe one day, I will have that third child I so desperately want, but only in his time.

I also have a tilted uterus and it took them longer to see the baby also to hear the heart beat. Hopefully that's all it is!

I got spotting twice and once was after me and my husband had sex as well.....although I haven't had a miscarriage before, so I am not sure if that changes things.....

I had a miscarriage before with some spotting but then it got heavier over a couple of weeks. I am 8 weeks today, and just started some spotting yesterday. I did start to spot after my husband and I had sex. Has this happened to anyone? I really hope it has so that I do have some reassurance :) The spotting this time has been off and on, where last time when i started to spot it continually got heavier and heavier. Erg life is crazy eh??

I didn't figure out that I was pregnant until about 7 weeks and they did an ultrasound because I was spotting a decent amount....I was also super worried! My baby was just a small kidney bean with a yolk sac and everything was ok. The doctor said I probably just had some unexplainable early pregnancy bleeding and that a lot of women do have spotting. It was kind of scary because at times I thought I would see clots and I consistently spotted for about 3 or 4 days.....my first semester was so stressful because of this and I literally counted the days until the second tri....thankfully I am 21 weeks now with a little boy so it could be the same thing.......I also didn't think I could be as far along as I was.....I actually thought that I was 4 weeks but they said I was 7, so maybe your ovulation was off! Hopefully everything is ok! :-)

Thanks to evryone for responding, Iam feeling more hopeful! I also remember the songrapher saying my Uterus was tilted so maybe thats why they could not see the baby, also I went thru my calendar and realized I have been late one time and early three times before I found out I was pregnant, so... maybe the calculations are off! Anyway go on Tuesday , hoefully will know something for sure, fingers crossed!!

Yeah, I knew I was only about 2-3 weeks pregnant when I found out and told the Mw's as I had to have a pre-conception appointment with being diabetic. Anyway she sent me for a scan saying by my period (it was a very long one) that I'd be atleast 11weeks so I had an ultrasound and there was nothing there. A week later I was sent for an internal scan as nothing had been spotted and that's all they saw because I was so early on. They can't usually see much until about 10 weeks that's why the ultrasouns are usually afterwards, good luck.

Everything always works out,just have faith, Fetal Pyelectasis is when the kidneys are enlarged, my baby has it in both of her kidneys, I have to have a few more ultrasounds before she is born, but i'm positive she will be ok, God doesn't give us anything we can't handle.

Never had this experience, but i wish you all the best with your pregnancy, my baby was diagnosed with fetal pyelectasis on my 20 week ultrasound, I am now 26 weeks so I know what it feels like to worry and panic, just calm down and wait and see what happens, worrying will only make things worse. Good Luck my thoughts are with you :)
