Is it normal to bleed during five weeks pregnant?

I am five and a half weeks preg and started bleeding some a day ago. Been to the er and was diagnoised wid threatened pregnancy. Is there anyone who has been in this situation and had a full term pregnancy? I have no pain at all and nothing seems abnormal to me but the bleeding. Will go for an u/s tues.

  • I had the threatened pregnancy diagnosis at 12 weeks.
    I had dark/old blood with one wipe, and the next it was mixed with bright red blood. I don't know if it's related - none of the docs know why, but I went into preterm labor at 22 weeks.
    At 5 weeks, however, I did have "spotting" but it was strictly old blood, and very minimal.

    Good luck to you!!

  • Not sure what "threatened pregnancy" means, as there are risks involved with every pregnancy. Maybe you are high risk? Spotting is normal and very common in the first trimester.
