I'm 8 wks pregnant and started spotting, now bleeding.. went to the er and they said my bloodwork looks good, hcg levels were where they were expected to be, and my cervix is closed right now.. the dr said the cervix will open if you're having a miscarraige.. the ultrasound showed the baby in the uterus but was measuring 6 wks...(both of my girls always measured small) or I may have the date off by a bit.. they couldnt find a heartbeat though...the dr said it just maybe too early to see the heartbeat, or it's the beginning of a miscarriage.. has anyone had a similar experience?

I am currently going through the same thing, trying to leave it in God's hands but it's so hard not to worry, I have an ultrasound tommorow. Remember all is God's Will, if he bring you to it, he will bring you through it. God bless you!

Went through it twice. First time had a mc. Second time thought for sure that I would MC again but after a few days of bleeding it stopped. Rest of pregnancy was uneventful! Now have healthy 6 year old!

so sorry for your loss. 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarraige just to let you know and nothing you can or could of done. This July 1st it well be 2 years since we lost our baby. I kind of have a strange story. I had a really bad delivery with my son. I lost a lot blood and got pretty beet up inside. He was a big boy with a big head. 4 months later i got pregnant again. I spotted for 10 days on and off before it hit me that i might be pregnant. My first couple ultrasounds were great. They said the heart beat was so fast and stronge. About 2 months pregnant i got another ultrasound because i was still getting pains and bleeding and they said their was a lot of blood around the baby but the heart beat was still really great so we were all kind of confused. They said i just had to wait it out but good chance i was going to loss the baby. I was about 3 months before we did lose him or her. The doctors say when the baby was attaching some blood got in while it was forming. 2 months after we lost him/her we got pregnant again and i had some spotting and pains. I missed my period but the pregnancy test wouldn't show positive at all for 4-5 days. I was almost positive we were going to loss her too. Her ultra sounds showed that she was smaller then she should be for a first couple months. She was born 2 weeks early a very healthy weight of 8.3 lbs and 21 inches. So you never know what can happen.

It's too early for this to be Placenta Praevia (where the placenta moves lower down covering or partially covering the cervix) and your hormone levels are as they should be to maintain the pregnancy so I would try not to worry and rest up as much as possible (granted I know it's not easy and I've been there too with an ADHD 5 yr old, a 15 month old and a partner away in the Army when I was 8 weeks with my third one back in 2000) I think you'll be ok hun, some women experience spotting or even continue to have periods throughout their pregnancies and no two pregnancies are the same either so don't compare this to the none-bleeding pregnancies of your daughters.

I had a scan at 6 weeks with my 2nd child because I had suffered 2 miscarriages before I carried her and like you there was no heartbeat to be found because it was just too early. I know it's really hard not to but try not to worry and stay calm for you, your baby and your two girls, best wishes hun, let us all know how you're getting on x

I just went through the same thing on Easter. I know it was fo a reason but it still stinks. I have 2 wonderful girls and hold them tight each night nowing how blessed I am to have them. So sorry for your loss. I know that words don't really seem to help right now but I also know that talking (email) people who have been through the same thing as I really helped me get through the hard time. Bless you and your family

Beverly - bless your heart. I can relate too. Even though I am now past childbearing age (60), I remember well, my experiences with pregnancy and miscarriages. After one miscarriage when I was hospitalized, I was down at the Nursery window wanting so badly to just hold a sweet baby, a nurse quickly ushered me back to my room saying, "You are young and have plenty of time to have more children!" I felt like I had no right to mourn over this loss because I should be able to have another to replace it! It crushed me. Looking back over the years I realized she hadn't meant to be cruel,, she was just uneducated in how to help me with the loss. So, be patient with those who don't understand and know that you have every right to mourn your loss - then look forward to the future.

I had bleeding with 3 or my four, beautiful, healthy, problem-free (physically lol) children. I was instructed to keep my feet up a lot and not do too much car, plane travel. If all else looks good, it may be just fine. I will pray for serenity and calm for you and total health for your baby. Marjorie

Hi, I bleed for serveral weeks with my second pregency. I was in an out of the ER at least twice, plus taken by ambulence when I had passed a softball size blood cot. I was on bed rest for about 2 months of the pregency and I still delivered a healthy boy at the end of it all. I had placenta previa and a tear away from the uterus.

Beverly, I'm sorry to hear about your loss. We went through three miscarriages--one in the third and two first trimesters. If your hospital offers a group grief counseling service, I highly recommend you _and your husband_ go. Men and women process grief differently and everyone processes it at different rates. Our grief counseling really helped us stay close at a difficult time.

I would say just dont worry too much as yet. With my first baby who is now aged 7 years, i spotted from 2 months of pregnancy till i was about 8 months. First instances i kept running to the emergency room and with subsequent instances i just didint bother and i stayed home. It happens sometimes. At the end, she was a very healthy big baby born by C-section.



There was another time i had a miscarriage, between my first and last baby, but i had never spotted or bled.



So, i would say just relax, but keep your doctor informed and its important to monitor the heartbeat and ensure that you are not having any severe internal bleeding.



All teh best.

Hi Beverly, sorry to read your story - hopefully by now you may have better news. I see so many different stories here, many of them will be no comfort to you. If its meant to be it will be. Please let us know how you get on. Best of luck. Trish xx

yes, i have had both spotting, bleeding and miscarriages.

My first two miscarriages were not just blood but also a thick mucus. I bled when pregnant with my daughter on and off when i was 12weeks, sometimes just spotting and sometimes a little heavier, she is now 6. Also with my son who is now 2, i had spotting with him.

As hard as it seems, try to relax, stress is not going to help, put your feet up, rest, and Dont lift anything heavier than the kettle. No washing basket Nothing. A miscarriage is a very sad time, but further down the track you are able to see things a little more clearly, as sad as it is if this is actually what is happening, it may be happening for a reason, your body may not be ready to be pregnant at this time. I see from your picture 2 small children, just try to be positive and dont forget that you have been blessed with 2 lovely children. good luck.

I am so sorry for your loss! I have three healthy children and I bled with each one of them during my first trimester. I miscarried my 4th at 9 weeks and my 5th at 19 1/2 weeks. Several years later I went on to have one more healthy child, however, I bled during this pregnancy also. I hope and pray that you make it through this very traumatic experience! I also hope that you have an awesome support system - I think that's what kept me sane! I have found that as time goes on it gets easier to cope but I also believe that I am a very different person because of the experiences I have had to deal with. Each year when the dates that I lost the babies and the dates I was due come around, it hits me as if it was yesterday. Take care and be strong!!!

I don't want to respond...it simply breaks my heart. I was 9 weeks pregnant and started spotting. I went to my OB/GYN the next day and they did an ultra sound, no heartbeat. They did not even do bloodwork, they said I was measuring 6 weeks as well. We wait another week and a half.....still no heartbeat. My doctor said there was no hope and I knew it to be true. I could feel my hormone levels dropping, my breasts were getting less and less sore....I was having more energy (not a good sign) I just knew in my heart. So we went ahead and scheduled the D&C but started miscarrying two days before. It was one of the sadest moments in my life....but now, four months later my husband and I are starting to try again. You just have to remember, miscarriage is extremely common, not your fault, not your husband's fault. it does not mean anything is wrong with you at all, these things just happen. It is so hard to get through, but you will. Stay positive, pray and trust that things always happen for a reason. I know I have a chance for another miscarriage, but I refuse to give up hope. In my prayers Beverly!

Hi. I have 3 children, their ages are 11,9,4. I had bleeding with my first child that lasted 28 weeks and no one knew why. It wasn't severe bleeding with my first but it was bad with my third pregnancy. I also had cramping but it only lasted for just over 2 weeks. Just take it easy and try not to worry, I know how hard that is and some people just don't understand hopefully everything will work out fine. Keep me posted and I will be thinking and praying for you!!!!

Hcg levels can be good even if you aren't producing enough progesterone. After my 1st miscarriage (a blighted ovum=empty gestational sack), my 2nd pregnancy tests showed my progesterone levels too low so I took synthetic progesterone for the 1st trimester. I also made sure that I had all the tests run the minute I could know I was pregnant (the same week my period was due). I now have 3 children and only needed the progesterone for my 1st son.

[deleted account]

I experienced my first miscarriage this past fall. I bled/spotted on and off for about 4 weeks before finally miscarrying naturally. I saw my OB who did ultra sounds and monitored my hcg levels. 8 weeks is definitely past implantation bleeding (that takes place at around week 3 or 4, contrary to what a previous person posted). Bleeding is scary during a pregnancy even if it does end up to be nothing. See if you can get your OB to do another u/s in a week or so. Sometimes it takes awhile for anything to be visible. Even though I lost mine eventually, this site gave me hope on those hopeless days: http://www.misdiagnosedmiscarriage.com/

I have a healthy 5 yr old boy but my last two pregnancies ended in miscarriage, one I started bleeding at 8 weeks with and went to the hospital, they said there was a 505/0 chance pretty much, i lost that baby and then lost another one on my sons 5th birthday, we went to the doctors thought things were great and when they checked the heartbeat at 11wks their was no heartbeat. I am crossing my fingers now that I am pregnant should be able to find out in a week or so :)

My heart goes out to you Beverly! I have had two miscarriages and they are very hard to go through. The emotional side is very hard if you don't have a strong support structure around you. I lost my 4th and 5th pregnacies. Fortunately, I was able to carry my next one. Keep up hope and faith, and should you decide to try again, just do what the doc says and you should be fine. May Heaven watch over you in this difficult time.

Absolutely, with two of my pregnancies I started spotting around the 8 week point. I totally freaked out thinking I was miscarrying. It can be normal to have bleeding around the time the embryo attaches to the uterine wall (at about 8 weeks), but it definately needs to be checked out. Both pregancies were fine afterwards.

I bled at 8 weeks and that baby is now 7 years. Everything is probably okay. Stay positive and if you do end up miscarring there is always a reason.

I had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy too. I started spotting but only for 2 days when I was 7 weeks preg, blood work was perfect, no heartbeat on ultrasound but they said it may have been too early. Had more blood tests a week later, still all good, then a week after that went for a follow up u/s at 9 weeks, still no heartbeat and not enough fetal growth so they said I had miscarried. Had more blood tests because they had always been so good but this time the hcg levels had started falling so I had to have a dnc. I really hope and pray that your little bub is all ok, but it sounds a little worrying. Good luck sweetie.
