i found out i was pregnant on fri, 3 days ago, after a 2nd blood test, the 1st was came back borderline. i should be 7 weeks preg. ive had preg symtoms on and off. i felt sick and had tummy ache on sat, had period type cramps yest and brown spotting but only a tiny bit, but it soon stopped. had the same cramps and more brown spotting 2day but it was only a little bit. phoned the doc 2day and he says its not normal, and ive an appointment with him 2morrow.
Its been 8 weeks since miscarriage. We are ttc again. No period until yesterday. I thought it was my period but just bled a little followed by cramps throughout the day. Could this be a light period? Pregnancy?
cramping is very normal in the 1st couple of weeks...5-10 maybe. I had cramping for about 3 weeks. But I had no spotting at all. That may be why the doctor is worried. But like a previous poster said, it could be implantation bleeding. Some women have this. Wait to see your doctor before you get too worried. He can check your levels to make they are increasing like they should. If they decrease then there could be something wrong with the pregnancy.
What if your levels do not double and you still feel pregnant? i should be 7 weeks i kinda had the same thing happen to me...my levels were only 30 then they dropped to 20 and then went up to 21 and i go back tomorrow to see what they are now...they won't do an ultrasound and my cervix was closed when i started bleeding...and i did not see any abnormal tissue...i am just so fustrated, and confused!
yeah..but they say i am still pregnant and that they can not say anything for sure because the levels are not below 5...but is it possible that i am only 2 weeks or 3 weeks...maybe i ovulated at a later time than like may 18!?
yeah but the hospital told me that i was 2 weeks pregnant. because of my hormome levels. idk...that is why i think that i am so confused...nothing makes any since that the doctors tell me. I feel like i am just getting the run around. don't you think that they would do an ultrasound to see what is going on?
You wouldn't have hormone levels if you were just ovulating. If you're talking about hCG, your body wouldn't be producing it at 2 weeks pregnant because it wouldn't even be pregnant yet. The egg would only just be fertilized and it would be traveling down your fallopian tube - it wouldn't even be in your uterus yet. Your body would NOT be making the hormone.
If they were talking about 2 weeks gestation, that's 4 weeks pregnant. That's the point where you first miss your period. At 4 weeks along, there's nothing to see on ultrasound just yet. The egg is too small to be seen. The earliest a pregnancy can usually be detected via ultrasound is around 5 weeks - and all they would see is a sac, not a baby.
Your hormone levels should be detectable via urine or blood test by now, and your hCG levels should be doubling. The fact that they're hovering around the 20's and 30's is troubling. It's very possible that your doctors are doing the wait-and-see approach to see if you miscarry or if maybe you're not as far along as they thought.
okay yeah well thats helps alot...i mean this is my first time ever getting pregnant so i don't know much about all of this..but yeah i mean the aver. HCG levels they said for 2 weeks was 30 to something..idk..but like you said about not being pregnant at 2 weeks makes sense..all that stuff just confuses me. but with my last period being may 18 would be me being like 7 weeks right? i mean don't you think that they would want to do an untra sound just to know what going on? i mean that makes since to me! IDK..i mean i didn't bleed or cramp the way they said that it would feel like and with my cervix being closed during all the bleed and cramping..that is a good sign right? I have prayed a lot and i want this so bad. I am refusing to accept that i am miscarring! Do you think that the baby is okay though. I go back tomorrow to find out my hormone levels again, so i am waiting on a good feedback!
It really depends on when you ovulated. If you're 7 weeks along, your hCG level should NOT be 30, and your pregnancy would be detectable via transvaginal ultrasound. If the levels are around 30, it's either because you're losing the pregnancy or because it's so early on. An ultrasound this early would be pointless - there's nothing to see yet.
All you can really do is wait until tomorrow when they recheck your levels. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
well i just wanted to say thanks for all you advice...i have lost the baby, but we are going to try again soon. You have been great about trying to explain things to me even though i am kinda stubren and what not! Thanks again
I too just found out I am pregnant..about 6 wks. I have 4 healthy children, but between the 3rd and the 4th..I miscarried twins and a singleton. Then 1.5 yrs ago I had an ectopic, the left tube was removed. This is the first time being pregnant since. I am concerned as I started spotting 3 days ago..well Just the one time before bed, then the next day it was red, but only when I wiped, today it is brown and only when I wipe. I dont really need to wear a pad bcuz it doesnt make it to my undies. Im wondering if its possible to have a healthy pregnancy with spotting even though my other 4 I never spotted at all? Any and all answers will b appreciated..
I am pregnant with my first pregnancy. I think I am about 4 weeks. a week and a half ago i was going to the doc to get my levels checked and they were doubling as normal. I have been cramping the whole time like a period but not as intense jus the same type of cramping. well today i discovered light brown/light pink discharge. its not very much but its there and im scared. i am still cramping as well. i know what implantation bleeding is but if my hormones have already been rising isnt it already in my uterus?? can anyone help me feel better? i want this baby soo bad... also my uterus seems like it has gotten a little bigger... it seems slightly bigger on one side tho, what is that?
scaredmommy2b do not be scared I am almost 5 weeks pregnant now and I also have cramps and a little brownish excretion. If the bleeding is not heavy with clots or fibre-like tissue in it, you should NOT worry about it. These pains and light bleeding are just signs of a stretching uterus.
It is important to rest at the beginning.
On the other hand we are in the hand of our fates; Our body is very smart, if the body senses a chromosome problem in the embryo, then you can have a miscarriage.
Try not to worry, if it's healthy it will be brought to full term, most likely!
My huband and I had unprotected sex twice and I soon found out after I was ovulating at this time. For the last two weeks I have felt different and I have been experiencing cramping like my period. This morning I noticed brown spotting and still cramping. I am expected to get my period next week so I know that it is too early to take a pregnancy test just wanted some feed back.
Someone please help me i have been very cramping and i started spotting 2 day before my period and now i am very cramping and headache and now some brown spotting...I had my last period on Oct 17 and Ovulation on oct 31. Also Started cramping since Nov 1. please someone help ...could i be pregnant?
I am 22 years old and I am in the same situation also. I had my last period oct 20th and I have been cramping on and off since about nov 5th or 6th and I started spotting around the 9th or 10(only lasting about a day and a half) and then stopped, but then I started spotting again lastnight the 13th and onto today. I have also been having period like cramps ( but I usually dont get cramps on my period) and I have also been pretty moods and irritable for no apparent reason.
I should also say that I have a 14 month son that I do breastbeed (but only at night about 4 feedings worth) I dont know if this changes anything. He is my first and only ( that I know of at this piont... unless if I am now) pregnancy.
can someone please help me out? and maybe put my mind at ease... thank you
I am 7 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I rode my beach cruiser bike today and went over a few bumpy patches. I started cramping, when i used the restroom and wiped i saw the tissue had a brown colored blood on it, i have gone again since and their was some but not as much. I don't even have an ob yet, i am planning on going to the pregnancy care center here locally tomorrow just to get a referral for an ob. I am concerned as this will be my third child and I have never experienced this in previous pregnancies. I just want a straight edged answer if this is miscarriage symptoms or if this is possibly normal after exercising on my bike... thanks everyone
this same exact thing is happening to me with the exception of the bike.. i was out all day with my mother and i come home and had too use the bathroom .. i wipe and the brownish blood was there.. so i just think my period is starting.. i put in a tampon and then i went to use the bathroom and there was less brown on my tampon(hardly any there) so i took it out and wiped and nothing.. so i now have on a pad and im waiting till tomorrow to see if it comes down again or if my period comes..i havent made an appointment but i will 1st thing in the morning.. im scared because im not sure if im prego or not.. so if i am and i lose it ill be upset. another thing is i missed my period last month and i ussually get really bad cramps and really bad tender breasts when im on my period.. but i feel nothing.. ive been cramping (very light cramping ) for a few weeks (maybe 2 or 3 weeks) and its on and off so it goes away at times ..and my nipples have been tender but thats it my breasts dont hurt at all !.. idk whats happening ... anyone have any idea?
