I am 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant but on Wednesday evening I started bleeding. On that day it was little and on Thursday morning it started to be heavy. I went to the hospital and my doctor says it's ok because my cervix is still closed, but it's still bleeding again. I don’t know how I can stop this bleeding and if this is really normal.

I am 5 weeks pregnant and last Tuesday I've seen a spot of red blood in my panty. It is just a small amount of blood, but I still got it till now, and I don't know if it is normal. I am worried since this is my first trimester of pregnancy.

I'm 10 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I'm bleeding since Tuesday, but it's not heavy, it comes when I go to the toilet. No pains or anything. I've been to the doctor and they say my cervix is closed and they don't see where the blood is coming from.

I'm 7 weeks pregnant. I started spotting but now it's like a normal period. I went to see the doctor on the 5th and did an ultrasound, and the baby was there. I went again yesterday after I noticed that the bleeding has increased, unfortunately he said he can't see anything. Then I decided to go to the hospital on the same day, the doctor there tested my blood and urine, and both were positive. Now I am confused if I am still pregnant. The doctor said I must take bed rest. I am hoping to test again when the bleeding stops.

I'm 11 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I first saw a watery blood running down my legs, and now it is becoming thick and looks like I'm menstruating. I'm worried now because it's not stopping at all. I don’t know what to do.

Comment from: Stressed mom, 25-34 (Patient) Published: August 28

I am in my first trimester of pregnancy. Yesterday my son got so sick, I think I was panicking. Then I started to see pinkish blood (weak), and had mild cramps, but today I'm seeing brownish blood and no cramps. I'm even scared to walk around, or even go to my doctor, I'm scared of the news I might get.

Comment from: Rachel , 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: August 21

I am 7 weeks pregnant, today marks a week I have been bleeding. The 3rd day I had pains after the transvaginal scan and heavy bleeding, the scan didn't find any baby, and the doctor said I was never pregnant, until I took a blood pregnancy test that came in boldly positive. So the doctor was confused and asked me to go and take the scan again after 7 days, but subsequently after, I have slight cramping only and bleeding is not heavy any more. I also had clots in my blood. I am going for another ultrasound. I'm scared.

I am 7 weeks and 6 days pregnant. I got an ultrasound a week ago and everything was good, and we got to hear the baby’s heartbeat, but 3 weeks before the ultrasound I had started bleeding but it was light and only for 2 days. Then I started bleeding a week before the ultrasound but it was for 1 day and light. A week after ultrasound I bled for one day, then didn’t for one day and now I am again but it is light. I don’t know what’s going on, I wonder if anyone has ever had this happen to them.

I am bleeding in my first week of pregnancy but my uterus is empty. Both ovaries are normal and polycystic ovarian disease free, with thicker endometrium. Both results for pregnancy test (urine and blood) are positive. I wonder if there is a possibility that I am pregnant.
