bleeding & levels duing first trimester

I'm 6 weeks along & having some complications with pregnancy. After my 2nd sonogram the doctor had me convinced that I was going to miscarry bc he wasn't happy with the lack of progress he was seeing with the growth of the baby. He had me give blood to check my levels & then the waiting game began. The next night I started to spot bright red blood so of course I just assumed that I was losing the baby. I called the doctors office & spoke to the on-call doctor. He told me to just keep my feet up & some spotting could be normal. He also gave me the results to my blood work & said that my levels looked a bit low, but to follow up with my doctor Monday morning. So the next day, I didn't spot at all, But then the following day I did & this time it was brownish in color with what seemed like small pieces of skin on the paper with it. Of course I was freaked out. Got an apt at the doctor & they did another sonogram, an internal exam & took more blood work to see if my levels were increasing. THe sonogram finally showed a heartbeat, that the doctor said was a bit weak @ 8 beats per minute. But they were also finally able to get measurements which they hadn't before. That determined how far along I was. So now it's a waiting game again waiting to hear from the doctor/ nurse to see if my levels are increasing. Is this normal? Should I go to a different OB & get a second opinion? What was the skin/tissue that was with my blood when I wiped? I'm trying now to freak out but it's so hard! Please give me some answers. That's all I want at this point are answers, even if I don't like them
