Bleeding During Pregnancy Week 8

Carladj5 - February 2

Hi, I'm just about 8 weeks pregnant, according to my calculations. I haven't been able to go to my GP for any test. So far I haven't had any complications, only slight abdominal cramping which I've read is normal. However, yesterday morning I started bleeding slightly. It was very little and only lasted a few hours. How normal is this? I am very scared now.

Carladj5, I had bleeding at 6 weeks 7 weeks and 11 weeks. Not alot, just light a light period for a few hours. I went to the ER each time. Bleeding during pregnancy can be normal, but it can also be cause for concern. My issue has turned out to be a subchorionic hematoma. In my case the lining of the placenta next to the uterus is bleeding. Mine is fairly small about 2cm. Usually these go away during pregnancy but need to be monitored. Lots of time women don't even know they have them. So this could be 1 thing. I have been on bed rest though for 2 weeks so far until it gets smaller. It can slightly increase your risk for a miscarriage. The other cause could be hormonal. Just around the time you would get your period you bleed. I think you should call you OB right away, this needs to be monitored. I don't mean to scare you at all, but you obviously came for facts and in my case this is what the bleeding was. My OB feels my chance for a successful pregnancy are great, I just need to stay on bed rest, and then later no s_x, lifting, pulling, pushing etc. Bleeding does not mean you are having a miscarriage, but if it is bright red, you are actually bleeding and need to be seen, so don't panic you probably are not having a miscarriage. But you need to go to the DR. Good luck and please let us know how things go.
