    My last period was on february 25th and found out i was pregnant just after march 25th. i am supposed to be just over 6 weeks along. went to the er yesterday with brown spotting and mild cramping. they did an ultra sound and blood work.the ultrasound showed a sack with a fetal pole in it but too soon to see a heart beat. measuring at 5 weeks 6 days. my hcg level was 222. they said everything looked ok just my hcg was low. today it redish instead of brown but not too much to where i need a pad, just when i wipe. my ob has no openings till the 22nd and im wondering if i should go back to the er to recheck my hcg levels to make sure its rising. anyone else experiance this? this is my 2nd pregnancy and had nothing like this with my first.

    I realize this was posted a week ago. Did things turn out ok? If bleeding ever increases or you start to experience cramping, you should definitely head to the hospital or to your OB if they can see you right away. Could be threatened miscarriage.

    Best of luck to you.
