Bleeding while 8 weeks :(

Hello everyone :) I am currently 8 weeks and 4 days pregnant with my second child. Cm has been coming out, which I'm told is normal, but every once in a while I need to wear a pad. So this morning as I was using the bathroom I noticed some blood on the pad. It was about the size of a quarter. Also when I whiped I saw some blood on the toilet paper. I just went back to bed because it was 5 am and it wasn't that much. Now around 11 am I used the bathroom again and noticed more blood on the pad and when I whiped there was a lot more. It wasn't heavy like period blood but it wasn't spotting. I'm just a little nervous because I don't remember bleeding with my son. Occasionally I get cramps. The blood was redish but I thought I saw a tinge of pink. No dark red or black blood. I don't have any other pain, just constant nausea throughout the day and throwing up. What should I do ? Thanks for reading.

If it is worrying you..you should call your doc or if you have cramps at all with it go to er right away..but I think you should call your doc and see what they say

Call your doctor. Could be nothing or something. With dd I spotted like you talk about through the whole first trimester. It was nerve racking. But I also started that way with my second mc. Just no way to know.

Go to the doctor and get an ultrasound to check on the placenta. I bled for a solid while but my baby was okay. I had something going on with the way the placenta attached because i have a bicornuate uterus.

Try not to stress and RELAX. I'm convinced that putting myself on bed rest kept me and my baby healthy.

Go to the ER. They can check to make sure everythings ok. I went through bleeding atleast one time each month of my pregnancy. Praying for you.

Go to your OB. Brown blood is okay, anything red or especially pink is new blood. I had a mc at 7 weeks in October so I know how stressful it can be. Go get some blood work done just to make sure.

Go to your OB. I've been bleeding since the day after I got my bfp and found out a couple weeks ago I have a Subchorionic Hemorrhage. I've been bleeding/spotting ever since and now on bed rest until further notice.

Call your Dr/OB/Midwife and see what they say. That is what I did when I was bleeding

Definitely go to the hospital. Every women and pregnancy is different with my second daughter I woke up at 6am and there was a little blood on the toilet paper also went to the emergency room and got checked out. They said it was a "Threatened Abortion" basically it was like a miscarry if the baby wanted to but to take it easy the next couple weeks. My daughter is a Beautiful Healthy 8 Month Old. Don't stress it's bad for baby just pray and see a doctor.

I would call your doc...they can probably set you up with an ultrasound to make sure everything is okay
I had bleeding from the time I got my positive until about 9wks
