5 weeks pregnant and spotting whats normal
An_249396 posted:
Hi there,
So I went into the ER with some cramping on my left side. The doc requested an altrasound which they saw that the I was only 4 weeks and it was to early to see a heart beat at that time. It has been a week since the altrasound and I had some bright red spotting for a couple of days.The bright red spotting then stopped and I started to have some brown spotting with some cramping and some pain in my lower back. The doc just sent me for some blood work to look at my HCG levels. So I am hoping that everything is okay. I may get the results back on monday, I am not to sure yet. I did have a miscarriage 7 months ago. So I am kinda nervous to see how things turn out.
Any advice/comments.
