Bleeding Again

Hey all. I have a question for you all. I am 12 weeks pregnant. At 7 weeks I started bleeding, bright red, the doctor did an u/s and everything was ok. At 8 weeks, I started bleeding bright red again, the doctor did an u/s and everything was ok. Last night, I bled really heavy for about 5 mins. I called the hospital and they told me to relax and stay off of my feet. If it didn't stop or turn brown that I needed to come into the er. It stopped. Today there has been brown, but no red. WHY??? I haven't had any cramping or pain. I haven't passed any tissue. Has anyone else ever had this happen? It is scary, but everyone says not to worry.....yeah, like that is possible. I wish I could afford my very own u/s machine, HA HA.

Well brown blood is old blood and I was informed by my OBGYN that when you spot sometimes blood stays inside your cervix and crevices. It's when you get an increase in cervical discharge, the bodies way of keeping yourself clean in there, than sometimes it cleans out the old blood which comes out brown. take care

to add to DownbutnotOut comment: At your point in PG, your cervix has increased blood flow to it, and can get irritated and bleed....Did these events happen after intercourse? (the cervix can be irritated then...)

question. found out last week after two positive HPT that I am pregnant. took one yesterday morn and it came back neg. Started having menstrual cramps and bleeding bright red, but no clots. Went to the doctor and got bloodwork completed. I go back today for the results. In the meantime, I cannot sleep and am trying to find someone online to help me. Anyone have any advice suggestions

Belief- honestly you'll need to wait for the blood test results. About a year ago I took 3 HPT's and they were all positive, and then I started bleeding. My hubby took me to the hospital and they said I never was pregnant...go figure. They told me it was possible I had a chemical pregnancy, but who really knows. Good luck! Let us know what you find out.

I bled bright red at about 9 weeks. I went to the doctor and they told me I had a UTI. So I got meds, went home. About 5 days later, I started bleeding bright red again. When I went back to the doctor, hte results of my swab were there and they told me that I had BV (bacterial vaginosis. When too much good bacteria starts to form). They gave me meds, and I didn't bleed again in my pregnancy. had a healthy baby girl. My advice would be to have a v____al swab done. Good luck!

Went to the doctor yesterday - a different one b/c mine was out of town. He told me it was probably a chemical pregnancy. A little disappointed but I'm looking on the bright side. At least I know I can conceive. There is nothing wrong in that department. He did give me the Rhogam shot just to be on the safe side. He said that the lab results came back with HCG as 9. Anything below 10 is not pregnant. I guess I am learning a lot about my body and the whole process along the way.

I was always told than anything under 5 was not pregnant.

Belief- When I was told the same thing by the doctor I lost it. I wanted him to explain it to me. Of course he was just an ER doc w/ a very bad bedside manner so I was out of luck. I'm sorry this happened to you. I know how much it sucks. Try to stay positive.
