5 Weeks and Complications
I know that everybody is different and just because it happens to some doesn't mean it will happen to others, etc... I guess I am just looking for a little peace of mind.
I found out Saturday I was pregnant after 8 months of trying. Sunday I had bleeding and mild cramping. They did a sono but did not see a sac, which is not unusual since I was only 4 weeks and a few days. My progesterone was low, so they put me on pills and gave me a shot. Today my bloodwork came back great! She said to take it easy but that, at the current time, I am not miscarrying. I go back in next Friday for a sono, to see if they can find a sac. Has anyone had anything similiar? I am still having a little spotting and some mild cramping, but not too bad. Just need a little reassuring that it is okay to be excited.

I had mild bleeding, spotting, throughout both my pregnancies. Your right we are each different. But it can happen and have happy endings.

I had spotting at about 4 weeks for all 3 of my boys because it was implantation spotting and cramping. I know what its like to try... I tried for 7 years and then had my oldest and now I have 3 boys total.
I hope it all goes well
Best of luck

Wow, does this bring back memories for me...your pregnancy sounds like a carbon copy of mine. I had the same, spotting, cramping(very uncomfortable) and my projesterone was also low...my ob put me on progesterone pills, and told me the same as yours did....take it easy...which I did...there was not way I was going to lose this baby(I was determined) The pills did the trick, and I had smooth sailing from then on, and now have a beautiful 14 month old baby girl. Congratulations!!! Hang in there!

It also hasppened to me. I started having SEVERE cramping like I NEVER had before. I went to the ER and found out that I was pregnant but baby was not in the sac so I had to stayover(Military hospital) and they did another sono in the morning and everything was fine and right where it should be, baby in the sac.
Throughout most of my pregnancy I had severly cramping and spotting and I was put on bedrest but after that had some complications during the end. I ended up in the hospital for a week and had my true blessing 16 yrs ago..
Good Luck and CONGRATS. TAKE IT EASY AND REST UP:)

Hi S.! Congratulations! OK, my husband and I tried for 2 years. When we were finally pregnant I spotted the whole first trimester and was on progesterone suppositories 2X's/day till 10 weeks.
You know, I was looking for all the tell-tale signs of pregnancy and I had NONE! I was tired, but that is about it. I had all of the Aunt Flo signs...cramping, bleeding, etc.
Hang in there...seriously take it easy...keep us posted...and most of all, good luck!!!

They didn't see my sac until about 7 weeks, when they also found a heartbeat. They found no hb at 6.5 weeks, so I was all freaked out. I also bled and cramped until about 13 wks with my 2nd child. I had none of this with my 1st child! It's scary, but they told me unless you soak a pad an hour, you're probably not miscarrying. I also had bright red blood, and the dr said this doesn't necessarily matter-it's the qty!

Hi S.. I have 2 children ages 2 1/2 and 4 months. With my first pregnancy I started bleeding and cramping very badly around 8-10 weeks (I can't remeber for sure now). I just knew that I had miscarried, but eveything turned out fine. Now he is 2 1/2 and very active. On my second pregnancy, I pretty much bleed the entire time. What happend is that with both pregnancies, by placenta detached which made me bleed inside. I then formed blood clots to stop the bleeding.
I not sure if any of this makes sense to you or helps, but I know how worried I was when I was in your situation. It is very scary and I had not known any other women that bleed like that during their pregnancies. I now have 2 beautiful healthy children.
Good luck with your pregnancy and I hope that everything turns out ok.
