    I know its super scary and something very very similar happened to me just a few weeks ago when I was just a few days short of 6 weeks. I had pale pink and dark brown spots on the tp, no cramps or pain. I of course spazzed out (first baby) and called my doctor who got me in the next morning. But since I was too early to see a heartbeat, all they could do was draw blood and then draw blood again in a few days to see HCG levels. So....more waiting. During the waiting days I made myself sick with fear, reading all these horror stories. But when I got my blood drawn the second time, it was all good! The spotting stopped after 3 days and now I'm 9 weeks and have seen the little peanut's heartbeat :)
    So I would say just see your doc and moniter your HCG levels with them.....but just breathe. Im sure everything is fine :)

    I've only thrown up once, but that was because I was smart and took prenatals on an empty stomach. Mostly I'll be queasy most of the day with some waves of nausea at night. Everyone says it will stop at the 2nd trimester though
