Okay guys sorry but this is gonna be a long one. I need some more reassurance.
Yesterday morning at 5 am I woke up to a mucus looking pink and whitish discharge when I wiped and called my dr at 8 to be seen. They got me in at 945 and did a vaginal ultrasound and we saw a healthy 6 weeks on the dot baby with a strong heart beat. I was still spotting a little that wad more pinkish brown by now. The dr told me my baby looked perfect and I had a less than 3% chance of miscarraige (I'm assuming based on my age, health, and baby's health) and that the spotting could be from sex I had the day before last. So I came home reassured and excited! Around 630 I started cramping like my first day period cramps and started bleeding a little. I called the on call nurse and she asked me a series of questions and told me it was probably from the ultrasound but to call back if I bled enough to soak a pad. I called back around 10 because I had bled enough to soak a pad and I spoke with another nurse who told me that it was probably just from the ultrasound. By this time the bleeding had slowed to spotting. She wanted me to call my dr in the morning. So this morning I called my dr and spoke to a 3rd nurse and she asked me if the bleeding had stopped and I told her it's still there but it's nothing compared to last night and that it's just spotting now when I wipe but it's still red with no clots, just blood. I've not passed any clots the whole time. She told me based on the info the other nurses documented last night and the results from my ultrasound it seemed to be fine and told me to play the waiting game until it stopped bleeding and if it didn't stop by the morning to call back. I asked her if it could possibly be a subchorion hematoma and she said they look for that on the US and there was no sign of one. Had anyone experienced anything like this?? I am trying to stay calm because my dr was certain that I was very healthy and so wad baby but that amount of blood scared me. It's my first pregnancy. All the info I've read on miscarraige said that the bleeding lasted like a week at least for most of these women. Someone give me some reassurance and tell me my baby is going to be fine!! Oh, I am 6w1d today. I wad 6 weeks even at the time of the bleeding. Thanks yall.

No one can fully say that the baby will be fine, but chances ARE pretty good if everything looked good yesterday. Take it easy and try not to worry.
