Im pregnant & Bleeding, HELP!

Just found out TODAY that I am in fact pregnant. I am 4 & a half weeks along. This is my first & I am so excited! However, only a few hours after I get home from the doctors, I am BLEEDING! Its not just light pink spots, but its not clumps either. Its just red blood. Am I miscarrying?!?! Please help, I am feeling so so scared right now!

  • If I was you I would go to ER! It might just be implantation. But go get check out! Good Luck.

  • I had this a lot with my first daughter.....go into the er. they probably will not do much but at least they can check on your baby and you and make sure you guys are okay. hang in there hon...the first 14 weeks of my pregnancy i did this off and on and my little girl is 2. just breathe, stay calm, and take super good care of yourself.

  • First, relax! I know it's difficult but the baby needs you to. Did you have a pap done today? If you had a pap done then it could be from the scraping they do to send off for testing. It could also just be implantation bleeding. I would definately call the DR and set up an apt to check things out.

  • Actually I would call and leave a message to get the ball rolling.

  • It's probably nothing, but call your Dr. ASAP.

    Right now your cervix is a mass of new blood vessels and such and just about anything can set bleeding off. A nurse even told me that a hard sneeze can make you bleed. I know it's scary and you're probably freaking out. I had a lot of spotting in the beginning of my pregnancy and freaked out everytime I bled even though it was pretty routine there the first few months. I always called and they always told me that if I wasn't cramping and I wasn't soaking through a pad in "x" amount of time, I was fine. I'd bet anything that it's from your exam. Hang in your Dr. as soon as you can or leave a message that you need to be called immediatley. Try to relax too sweetie...stressing out isn't good for the baby.

  • call doc, it is NOT normal to bleed like a period while preg. Some do but it is rare and has to be monitored, give them a call and good luck on LO. :o)
