    I started spotting today and I'm 5weeks. It not red, but I'm still shaken up by it! My dr has me coming in for a beta test tomorrow.

    I have read on here where lots of girls have had bleeding and all seemed to work out ok. Eventhough it's said to be ok, I would call the dr if it will put your mind at ease xxx

    My dr. told me that 30% of pregnancies have bleeding and only 50% of those end in loss.

    I have been spotting brown and light brown for over 4 weeks due to a subchorionic hematoma. I would call your dr ASAP just to be reassured

    well, like a BRIGHT red or a dark red...there is a HUGE difference...i know it sounds weird, but dark red is OLD blood, and a BRIGHT red is NEW blood. And Bright red is usually not a good sign if you have cramping along with it. (ive had 2 MCs).

    okay, it could be from MANY things...some reasons my dr gave me, and since you dont have cramping you are most likely okay :) but the top 3 reasons some people have bleeding is:

    -sex
    -holding your pee for too long
    -UTI

    I've heard that bleeding usually means the embreo/fetus is getting more snug into your uterine wall and causes some bleeding which could be bright red.
    Don't let it stress you. Drink lots of water, make sure to take your vitamins, and have lots of rest.

    :hugs:

    Good luck tomorrow, Lesley, just one more sleep until you know :hugs:

    Bleeding in pregnancy is always frightening and I personally don't like analysing colours. My mmcs started with brown blood for instance :shrug:

    As the previous posters mentioned, there are various less sinister reasons for you to bleed so please don't panic just yet (easier said than done, I know). Make sure you stay well hydrated and rest as much as possible until you see your doctor.

    Wishing you all the best for tomorrow :dust:

    Great news! It's always worrying but just goes to show that it's not always the worst case! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy
