I am 6 weeks pregnant with my second child and I have started bleeding. It started off pink spotting then brown. I went to the EPU and they told me to go back next week for a scan. Ive been having mild period like cramps in my pelvic area but have a UTI which is getting treatment. On wednesday it was heavy red bleeding with one tiny clot but then died down to brown again, it stopped for 10 hours but on my pad was brown again but when I wipe its a tiny bit of spotting(dark red) I still feel sick and my sore boobs are coming and going and also I am having really sweaty hands and feet at the moment. Im worried this could be something serious, my minds doing over time. Has anyone ever had this ?

Yes I am 5 weeks right now and I actually found out that I was pregnant because I had server bleeding literally clots, I was told my cervix was opened and that I am more than likely miscarrying, but then I went to the the Dr. twice in 1 week and my levels were doubling every 2 days and everything is fine thus far, so sometimes it doesn't mean you'r miscarrying but I would suggest you go to the Dr. to find out what's going on.

Also with UTI's and things like that it is common to bleed because of the irritation.

Ok seriously that was it? I lost my first because I was told by others that the bleeding wasn't a big deal. I almost lost my daughter, the same way. They should have done a blood test and checked your hormone levels. If there is something really wrong no amount of hormone treatment will work. But it does save lives. I started spotting with my daughter and had to wait two days (it started on a Saturday and I had to wait for Monday). During that time I was on pelvic bedrest. No standing for more that the time it took to get to the bathroom and back. Feet up above my pelvis. I went in and they did a blood test and ultrasound. My progesterone level was at a 10 (if I am remembering correctly), at a 8 it is too late. I was put on a hormone regiment until 14 weeks.

I hate it when doctors especially take these things so lightly. Go to a different doctor and demand a hormone blood test.

I have been to the early pregnancy unit several times this week but they told me to rest and keep taken my antibiotics and drink plenty fluids, she said there's basically nothing they can tell me until thursday when I have a scan, and to go straight over if the bleeding was bright red and filling more that 5 pads a day which is not or really bad cramps, but it keeps stopping for hours but coming back brown spotting, fingers crossed to thursday really, just really worried.

I hope you go to an ER soon--like right away. I don't mean to scare you, but I think they will get to the bottom of all your symptoms and perhaps put you at ease. Best of luck to you.
