Bright red spotting?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I'll be five weeks tomorrow and this morning when I woke up I had a little brown spotting.  I figured it was because I had sex last night and didn't worry.  Well now it's bright red, and it's not a lot but it's definitley there and now I'm having some weird cramping (I did just come back from a long walk though).  I'm not really sure what I should do.  My doctors office is closed until next week and I can't make it in until next Thursday anyway.  Would there even be a point of going to a clinic?  Or should I just wait it out and see what happens?  I'm starting to get nervous.

How scary!  And for it to happen right before the weekend :(  Hopefully, it's just some cervical irritation.  Unfortunately, I don't think there would be a point in going to a clinic.  Fingers crossed and I'll say a little prayer for you!

What's your blood type? I'm Rh- with an Rh+ partner, so if I had bright red bleeding, I'd go to a clinic because I'd need rhogam. Otherwise, you might as well wait.

Thanks ladies.  I can't remember what my blood type is but I already have a son so I don't think that's an issue.


Cramping has started and the flow is getting heavier, there are also small clots.  I think it's pretty safe to assume I've having a miscarriage. 


To make matters worse I just found out that the job I was practically guaranteed for September didn't get approved by HR so I'm pretty much a wreck right now.  Thank goodness my husband was able to leave work and come home to be with me.

Thanks everyone, I truly appreciate your thoughts and prayers.  I'm taking this much harder than I ever imagined I would this early in a pregnancy.  I know it's completely natural and when it's this early it's because something wasn't right, but it's little consolation right now.  Everything was so perfect a couple of days ago and now its not.  I think we're just going to wait things out and see what happens.  I can't imagine trying to get pregnant again in the immediate future.


I wish you all the best and a happy and healthful nine months and beyond!

(((hugs))) I am so very sorry. I think that no matter how long a baby is with us, we lose SO much because the instant we get that positive test, we start imagining who they might be, if they will have Daddy's eyes, our hair, brother's personality, what their interests will be, etc. So a loss is a loss of a lifetime of hopes and dreams as well. The baby I lost the earliest hit me the hardest as well. My thoughts are with you.

((HUGS)) I am so so sorry for your loss.  Take it easy on your self.  Get sad, mad, angry...whatever you need to do. 

**Wishing you peace and healing on the difficult journey through grief.**
