Hi, I've recently found out that I was pregnant, my last menstrual was Nov. 18th so that brings me to about 6 weeks, the only appointments make DR. gives me are to make sure my hCG levels are rising like they should be ( I've hadn't had an ultrasound yet). My problem is yesterday I spotted for the first time and it was like a gush of blood, then it stopped for the rest of the day and that was at 9:00 am, Now today my boyfriend and I had intercourse for the first time in about two weeks. It wasn't painful until after. Now I'm experiencing bleeding. Like bright pink but its kind of like on going ..There isn't any pains in my abdomen, but I need help? did he hurt me or the baby during intercourse? am I miscarrying? or does this happen when you have sex in the first trimester? i'm scared and confused!!!!
