  • Call your doctor right now. Ive been through this myself. You need to have a beta hcg done to monitor the levels for the next few days to see if they increase to make sure they baby is ok. Its still too early for an ultrasound.

  • I had my first ultrasound done at 4 weeks. They were checking to see I wasn't having a tublar pregnancy. You wont see much on it just the (i think they called it a egg sack or yolk sac or something like that) BUT yes call ur Dr. ASAP!

  • First things First. Take A deep breath and Dont Panic. the stress can cause extra problem you and your baby do not need!

    Call your doctor explain the situation see if you can just come in or stay home or... need to go to the ER. if it is only very lite spoting you probably are ok but if it gets worse you need to be carefull.

    while waiting on the toughts of your doctor Tell your SO whats doing and he needs to take over the house for a little bit if hes home. go back to your room turn on tv or music or something lay down and completely relax those mucels

  • I've had random light bleeding through my whole pregnancy. I'm 32 weeks now and everything seems normal, my cervix is just irritated for some reason. Hopefully it will be the same for you. Good luck!
