Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women can have period like bleeding at the expected period time during the first few months of pregnancy (decidual bleeding). Wait and watch and observe the bleeding/spotting. If it is associated with increasing intensity of abdominal cramps, backpain, fresh bleeding/spotting then it could be suggestive of possibility of impending miscarriage or threatened abortion. You should consider requesting your gynecologist/obstetrician for getting serial HCG levels tested. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements should be considered to be started to help with preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid having intercourse during first trimester. Avoid lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs or standing for long periods of time. Look out for early signs like bleeding/spotting, increased abdominal cramps and back pain etc. Report any unusual symptoms immediately to your treating doctor/gynecologist. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist. Continue to get your thyroid levels monitored for dose readjustment (as there can be changes during pregnancy).
