bleeding at 6weeks pregnant

iv never delt with this befor but my bestfriend just found out a week ago she is pregnant she was unsure how far along she was but figured she was about 4 to 5 wks. well two days after finding out she was pregnant she was spotting alittle but it was dark brown then the next day it was bright red and coming in gushes so she went to the er and they did a ultrasound and found little peanut just hanging out in there and they were able to find a heartbeat at 170bpm they ran tests and what not and told her they couldnt find a reason why she should be bleeding and put her pelvic rest and told her to see her dr on her apt date which is tomorrow. Has anyone been through this and things where ok? what could it be?

  • It could be hormonal bleeding which is very common in the first trimester.

    It could also be the start of a miscarriage. Unfortunantly she'll just have to wait it out.

    If the blood has a lot of clear mucus in it then she could be having a miscarriage. That's how mine started.

  • Chances are if baby's heartbeat is still clear, and the bleeding has stopped, it's nothing to worry about. They'll probably look for the heartbeat tomorrow and if everything checks out I wouldn't be concerned.
