I had the same thing, the Dr. said it was most likely your body releasing old blood and if it’s around when you should have gotten your period it’s totally normal, I have had a mc and you would def. know if you were having one, you would continue to bleed and it would get progressively worse (or at least that was my experience) good luck and congrats I will send positive thoughts your way!

YEAH HUN I HAD THE SAME THING WHEN I WAS PREGNANT IT WAS A BROWNISH COLORED BLOOD AND IT HAD A FUNNY SMELL. IT’S JUST OLD BLOOD. LIGHT CRAMPING IS NORMAL UNLESS THE BLOOD BECOMES SUPER HEAVY AND RED. OR YOUR CRAMPS BECOME SO BAD THAT YOU CANT MOVE THEN I WOULD SUGGEST GOING TO THE HOSPITAL. RELAX JUST DRINK LOTS OF WATER MAYBE EVEN A WARM BATH OR SHOWER TO EASE YOUR DISCOMFORT. 

 

ALSO IF YOU HAVE A SMART PHONE U SHOULD ADD “ISTORK” ITS A PREGNANCY FORM THAT IS VERY HELPFUL! IM ON THERE MY NAME IS MISSMARCHMOMMY!

Speaking from experience, a miscarriage is much more than 24h of light bleeding.  It’s more like 7-10 days of heavy bleeding.

That doesn’t sound like a m/c to me.  Cramping is completely normal in the early stages of pregnancy – I actually had quite intense cramping for the first eight weeks and everything is fine.  If it was actually a m/c, it would have been heavy bleeding and there would have been noticeable clots, although if you were super early, they may not have been that noticeable, but at the very least, it would have been like a very heavy period.

Have you taken any further tests?  For peace of mind, you may want to take one and given that it’s two weeks after your first positive, the line should come up much darker and quicker than it did before.  It that happens, it means your hcg levels are increasing and all is most likely fine.

@chastenet: my experience too.  Cramping with pregnancy especially early is normal, it is your uterus expanding.  With both of my term pregnancies, I had light spotting to medium spotting around the same time as my periods for months.  I think what you are going through is perfectly normal for early on.

If this was two weeks ago, then you should be able to tell by a HPT.  If you did M/C, then your levels of HCG would be down/zero’ed out by now, and you’ll get a negative test.  If you didn’t, then you’ll get an immediate positive test result.  Seconding PP’s, my M/C bleeding was HEAVY and lasted for days, but I was also 10wks along.  I don’t know if it would be the same at 4 or 5wks.  Definitely see if your doc can get you in sooner to help alleviate your fears.  ((hugs))

Agree with others that it does not sound like you miscarried.  With my miscarriage (which occurred early, around 6 weeks), I bled for 4 days heavily and then lightly for 3 days.  It was heavier than a period and accompanied by cramps much worse than my period.  I would, however, call your doctor and ask if you should come in earlier than Friday. 

Good luck!

I really think you’re fine.  I’ve had a m/c and you would definitely know it.  I bled for about 7 days with mine.  Good luck!

Remember that you can always bug your OB whenever you have concerns.  Sometimes it will turn out to be nothing, but always better to know either way.  Any time you have bleeding during PG, they will get you in right away (and if they don’t, find a new OB).  With my PG with my son, I had spotting at 6wks and they had me in within hours, and while it turned out to be nothing to worry about, it made me feel much better.  Then, when I had literally a spot of blood at 31wks, then had me come in “just in case” and it turned out to be pre-term labor which turned into 5 weeks of bed rest.  Moral of the story: sometimes it’s nothing, sometimes it’s something, but always call your doc with bleeding and they should always take you seriously when you do.
