Just a Question about Pregnancy

Specialties Ob/Gyn


Im not a nurse but I didnt know where else to go. I was wondering if someone could answer my question. I am about 3 weeks pregnant and I am having vaginal bleeding. I read somewhere that it can be normal. Im bleeding the same amount I would as a normal period and I have very slight abdominal cramping. I was wondering if I am having a miscarriage? I havent passed any kind of fetal tissue.

3 weeks pg? Likely if it's light bleeding, that it is implantation spotting and normal. Bleeding accompanied by severe cramping or pain or fever is NOT normal. If your spotting becomes any heavier, keep a count of pads you use and call your doctor. I wish you the best. Chances are, all is OK! HUGS. and congratulations to you.

Bleeding during pregnancy can be soooo scary! I bled with my second baby, very heavily within the first trimester. My progesterone levels were not high enough, and I was put on a med- Prometrium. I did not miscarry, and my baby boy made a year old this month. It could be hormone levels, implantation, or a threatened pregnancy. And I am sure, many other reasons! Call your doctor, and until then try to stay off of your feet as much as possible! I wish you all the best!

I had bleeding in early pregnancy in both my first and fourth pgs...they are now 12 and 4 years old :) . Implantation bleeding ... I'd call the ob and let him/her know and then take it easy...like smiling said...keep count of the pads and if the spotting increases or cramps/bleeding become severe call your doc (you should tell your doc either way).

Good luck and happy and healthy pg vibes to you
