Bleeding during early pregnancy

I just happened to go to the doctor on wednesday this week, and it happened that I had a little bleeding and my HCG was at 250. I should be about 3 to 4 weeks pregnant, no sure, cause of irregular periods. On friday my HCG was 546, so it did double. I am now experiencing a little more bleeding(spotting, not light, but not too red). It seemed to only last about a half hour with a little cramping. Should I worry?

  • I would double check with your doctor just to be safe.

  • I am not going to say not to worry but I had light spotting at 5 weeks, major bleeding at 7-8 weeks and again light bleeding at 12 weeks. I am now 22 weeks and so far everything is ok. If it continues definitely check with your doc or go to the ER to be checked. Good Luck.

  • My mom spotted when pregnant with me... my sister had what seemed to be an actual period with her 3rd child... so those turned out ok.

    My last two pregnancies I started spotting and lost both babies. So, it just depends... better safe than sorry... make sure you call the doctor.

  • The same thing happened to me. It turns out i had a really bad yeast infection. But I wasnt having any of the symptoms or anything. I spend all day wednesday at the ER getting test and ultrasound. But yeah, it was a super bad YI.
