Learned of pregnancy on June 29th, 2010 , bleeding lightly

User Profile
I found out I was pregnant on June 29th,2010 the doctor said i was about 8 weeks along and just last week on the 23rd of July I started bleeding lightly I phoned the doctor and she told me to come in so i did and while i was there i started to bleed a little more heavier and i passed a clot too i also had cramps that felt like menstrual cramps. The doctor said that passing of clots is nothing to be worried about and she said it doesnt really mean that i had a miscarriage but it could be something wrong with the placenta. She told me that if i soak through a pad every hour or experience any kind of pain then to go in right away and that could mean i'm having a true miscarriage. since i did not soak a pad every hour or have any kind of pain i did not go back the bleeding only lasted nearly a whole day and it stopped. i still have some pregnancy symptoms.anyone had this happen to them and still be pregnant??

Welcome to ehealthforum.
The bleeding could suggest possible bleed between uterus and placenta. It does not lead to miscarriage in all the cases. Request for an ultrasound scan (transvaginal ultrasound scan) to look for wellbeing of the baby and for any retro placental bleed.
Discuss about necessity of progesterone supplements to stop the bleeding if progesterone insufficiency is suspected to continue the pregnancy safely.
All the best.
