I found out i was pregnant on the 8th and then the 14th i had red spotting, my doctor isnt being very informative with me and is already talking about what to do with "it"
Are they trying to say i miscarried? the ultrasound showed what might be a sack forming but im only 4weeks, and it doesnt look "normal" and was told its too early to tell anything!
Please someone help!!

This is one of the tough parts in early pregnancy- when your OB is not actually able to make a firm determination about the viability (whether the pregnancy is going to proceed.) I do not think that they do not intend to be disinterested, my experience is that they feel awkward and do not know what to say to be reassuring.

If this is a miscarriage, the spotting will turn to heavier bleeding with cramping.

I encourage you to stay int ouch with your OB's office; ask if their is an advice nurse to be in contact with.

Wishing you all the best,
