Pregnant and bleeding

Stephanie - posted on 01/17/2013 ( 4 moms have responded )




I am just over 3 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and I started to bleed today, pretty heavy. Not sure if this is a miscarriage or not, I haven't taken another hpt yet. Has anyone had bleeding like this and gone on to have a normal pregnancy? I am hoping very much that I am still pregnant.
(I know I am pregnant because I missed my period last week and had a positive hpt last week. I am basing the 3 weeks on date of ovulation.)

I'm reading it that you are 5 weeks if three weeks from ovulation. What sort of bleeding is it? Is it bright red blood or brown? Are you having cramps with it? If it brown then it may be old blood. If its red it may be implantation bleeding. If it is bright
Red with cramps it could be a miscarriage. I bled for a week with my 1st cut with no cramps & she was just fine. Try not to worry & get some rest. I hope everything turns out ok. X

At 3 weeks pregnant, you aren't even generally due for a period, so I am not sure how you know you are pregnant. Or do you mean it is 3 weeks since you conceived, which is a different thing. Number of weeks is taken from the beginning of your last period. It could just be your period because the egg never actually implanted. No idea, but probably should go to your doctor if you are concerned.

At 3 weeks most people don't know they're pregnant. Have you even missed a period yet?

If you are concerned you should get yourself to a doctor.
