I am 5 weeks 5 days pregnant. Two days ago I noticed I had gotten what was like a period. I have had moderate bleeding (red) since then, though it has slowed today and is brown in color. Two months ago I had a LEEP procedure due to an abnormal pap and biopsy. Everything was clear. While I've been bleeding I haven't cramped or passed clots or anything. This is my 2nd pregnancy (1st pregnancy after LEEP). I really want this pregnancy to go to term, but understand that things do happen. My OB said not to worry and that he can see me Monday. Does anyone know if this is a miscarriage? Or am I still pregnant and it's related to the LEEP procedure? Please be kind in your answers. Thanks!

With my 3rd son I actually hemorraghed at 6 weeks pregnant. The doctor examined me and told me I had miscarried. He scheduled a D & C, but I already had an ultrasound scheduled for that day, so he sent me to the ultrasound, thankfully. Obviously I was still pregnant. He told me to go home an put my fee up, put me on progesterone and told me not to expect to carry the baby. I hemorraged again at about 3 months pregnant & this time he went ahead and did another ultrasound. My son was born a week early, perfectly healthy and weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz. He is now a gorgeous, intelligent 22 year old. Try to relax I know it's hard, take it easy until you see the doctor. If he does think you miscarried. Please ask for an ultrasound....and feel free to tell him why.
