    5 weeks had some bleeding
    MonikaB1983 posted:
    hello, I am 5 weeks and3 days pregnant. On sunday the12th i woke up with light cramps and spotting. the cramps got a bit stronger but nothing compared to what i was use to. the bleeding got a little heavy but i never filled a pad the first one looked like i was on my tail end of myperiod the blood was bright but there was not alot of blood/ and the 2nd pad had nothing but a slight pink stain. the Dr. said i was not far enough along to see anything in the altrasound and to test later. so in total i bled for a day and a half and even then it was not too much in the long run. much lighter then a period. Yesterday i went pee and a white/fleshy thing was there, it was not bloody and i was not bleeding. I will test again on the 19th or 20th. just wondering if anyone has had something similer happen but the baby was ok? im hopeful.. but not trying to get my hopes to high.
