Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Chances of miscarriage cannot be predicted, but the chances of miscarriage cannot be ruled out also completely (as per your symptoms). You should consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for getting serial HCG levels tested and ultrasound scan done. 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. The ultrasound scan done would also rule out any retroplacental bleeding or signs of placental separation or bleeding from uterus. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work (especially work involving bending down at waist level). 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. If all your investigations come out to be fine, then the spotting/bleeding can be attributed to probable decidual bleeding which occurs in few women during first few months of pregnancy.
Take care.

bleeding and cramping while pregnant
KendreLittlefield9-- how did your pregnancy symptoms turn out? I'm going thru the exact same thing, and don't know what to think anymore. I'm wondering how your problem turned out.
thanks

I am about 7 weeks pregnant and the same thing has been happening to me, I went to the doctors yesterday and he said the cervix was still closed. Went to the ultrasound room and its still too early to see anything, i went to get my blood drawn for hcg levels and again tomorrow, so thursday I will know if the hormone levels are going up. How was everything with you? thanks for your time.
