Possible Miscarriage??

My sister took a HPT on Saturday showed positive, went to the Dr. on Tuesday they confirmed that and they did an ultrasound yesterday, she thought she was about 7 1/2 weeks they figured 4 1/2 with the US, then she started spotting and cramping (like menstrual cramps) but only spotting when she wipes after going to the bathroom. She said it's red colored and worried, she's going in again today to the Dr. Just curious if this has happened to any of you and turned out it was nothing to worry about.

  • What shade of red? It might be a spontaneous abortion if it's bright red. If that happens there is nothing she can do to stop it or keep the pregnancy. That is the body's way of cleaning itself. I'm so sorry.

  • My first m/c I was 7 weeks along. Blood work confirmed it. By the end of the week I was doubled over and bleeding like I was on my period. I went to the hospital where they confirmed that I m/c and that I would pass the tissue on my own.

    This past April...I had a positive test at home and then 2 days later start to bleed without cramps. Doctor called it a chemical pregnancy.

    I hope she isn't going through this ....
