    Default Cramping & Bleeding at 5 wks

    I am only 5w 2 days and since morning I am having slight cramping along with bleeding. In the morning I was seeing blood on toilet paper, but now I have some on the pad I used as well. My ob's office drew blood to check my hcg level & will do so again on Thursday.

    hpts were still showing a positive in the morning. Am I already mis-carrying if I am bleeding? Can a pregnancy hold with bleeding?
    Is there anything I can do or not do right now?

    Is it red blood or just spotting?

    I hope you're OK. I bled a lot with my first pregnancy, but it was brown/pink. It also started at 5 weeks. The kid is now 7...sure hope everything is OK!!

    It is red blood or dark red blood with mucus. My pad is not filled or anything yet, but like a light period. But I am cramping at regular intervals.
    Also after I pee, there is blood that comes out. My hopes are down.

    Just been a week since i have known, but been dreaming you know....

    Can I bleed and still have a viable pregnancy?

    I hemorrhaged this pregnancy- for weeks. So much darn bright red blood. I thought I miscarried for sure. Meanwhile, 27 weeks later, I am almost due.

    Many women bleed a lot and still have normal pregnancies/babies. My bleeding (which lasted a few weeks was due to a burst blood vessel inside the uterus.

    I really hope and pray you will be just fine, but I would be on the cautious side, since I had exactly what you are having, exactly the same week, and only after the first MC I decided to check my progesterone level and it was extremely low during the second pregnancy, 5.2 or so, and lost that too 2 weeks later. I was always told to go in and get checked/get blood drawn if I was cramping in addition of bleeding. I assume they did not checked your prog. level with the labs you had, so you might request a separate one just for that. That said, I was started prog. right away with my second preg. but they said it was not started in time for it to save that preg. as I should have started it right after ovulation. Best of luck, and let us know!!! BTW, I would just do bedrest, if it's afterhours where you are. You know, I was told there is nothing they do to prevent a MC until after 3 consecutive ones, but I am glad I pushed for that prog. level checked the second time around, that is how I was diagnosed and had a healthy preg. the third time around with prog. supplementation. PS. I heard/took red raspberry leaf tea helps, if a fetus is healthy it will help the uterus hold it, if it is not, it will make it easier the other way around.
