So we've been trying for baby number 2 for a while and finally had a positive pregnancy test yesterday. We were so happy last night. Then this morning there was some blood. No cramps but there has been more blood since. Not my usual period amount but more than just "spotting". I rang the docs who were useless and said to take another test in a week and call back if I was in any pain. So I'm stuck in limbo not sure if I'm still pregnant or not. Has anyone had early pregnancy bleeding and everything been ok?
If it's not letting up then the news might be a bit sad. Wait and see. Doctors aren't useless, they just can't do anything to diagnose your status at this point, nor can they influence a more hopeful outcome I'm afraid. I know. I'm married to one. You just have to wait. Wait for the scan. I've bled in two of my three successful pregnancies, so don't despair yet!
They should get you in for a scan... that's why I wrote "wait for the scan" because a HPT can show up positive for weeks after a MC. It can be very misleading and if you have miscarried, a test in a week's time may not reflect dropping hormone levels. Insist on a scan at your EPU (from 6-7 weeks).
Sorry was not implying doc was useless, did not actually get to speak to the doc as the receptionist put me on hold and then relayed the message to me. More meant that phoning had been useless as was non the wiser.
I had 2 chemical pregnancies and it was obvious because as well as the light bleeding my pregnancy tests got paler and went negative over the course of a few days. I also had implantation bleeding with my DD and she is fine. It really is a waiting game. If you only got a positive test yesterday no point in insisting on a scan, they can't see anything until about 5 to ,6 weeks . good luck.
I had bleeding, which I would consider quite heavy, at about week 6. Then every few weeks until week 15. Always panicked I was losing the baby but it was the position of the placenta. Once it moved I didn't bleed again. I'm 32 weeks now. It's also quite common to bleed when you would normally have a period while your body adapts to being pregnant. Hopefully everything will be ok for you but unfortunately it is a waiting game. They should be able to scan you in week 6 or 7 so might be worth getting an appointment with your Dr if you can get past the receptionist!
