Re: 5 1/2 weeks and spotting

I've heard that bleeding is pretty common, as long as it's not super heavy like a period. Even then it can be nothing...and the OB always told me not to worry unless I was bleeding heavy like a period with a lot of pain.

Re: 5 1/2 weeks and spotting

I've spotted/bled this entire pregnancy. Something with veins/glands on the outside of my cervix being very sesitive. As long as the blood is coming from you and not baby...everything is fine.

Thank you!

I will keep this in mind. I can't imagine how you felt for those 17 weeks! Today the spotting seems to have came to a halt. I go in the morning for blood work. I feel better hearing everyones' stories! If the spotting continues I will mention this to my OBGYN.

Thank you !

Wow, This is my 5th pregnancy and i have never spotted like this. So I was immediatly freaked about it. I am feeling better today, but will feel much better when everything is confirmed.

Thanks so much! Prayers to you too!

They are close , but not twins....We have been blessed with some adoptions. I call them my twins, but in each "set" they are 2 months apart. I do not diferentiate between them though!

Re: 5 1/2 weeks and spotting

I've spotted with all of my pregnancies early on (before 6 weeks), but our last pregnancy I began having lots of bleeding (like a period) at 8 weeks. We never found a cause for it...very likely a ruptured cyst or something, but all was well.
J is 3 months old now.

I'll say a prayer for you and your baby!
