hello I have had a trying week. First of all, Saturday morning, I took a pg test- it was negative. My daugther was admitted to the hospital that same day. By Tuesday, I was sick with morning sickness and light-headiness. I called dh and crying told him me a pg test right away- Just that day I had started my period. I took it anyway, and it was positive Only thing bothering me was the bleeding which wasn't painful, just felt like a medium flow period which tapered off yesterday to light pink. So, last night when I got back from the hospital, I took a pg test again. It barely shows a positive sign. Midwife said this worries her, since that could mean my hcg levels are down, thus I could be miscarrying. However, she thinks I may not have urinated enough on the stick, and this could have caused my test to function abnormally. So, as of today, Friday, no cramping, a little nausea, and a whole lot of mixed emotions. Everyone tells me that sometimes pg women have periods during their pregnancies. My mom said she had them through both pregnancies. Anyone have any experience with this?

I had bleeding or spotting every month during my 1st trimester around the time my periods normally came. I didn't know I was pregnant until about 7 weeks because my pg tests kept coming out negative, finally my doctor did a couple of HCG levels 3 days apart which showed a definite rise, so we went and had an ultrasound. Lo and behold, there was our little one!
Good luck, it sounds like you really want to be pregnant and I hope it all goes well.

Hi,

I had bleeding early on too. I went to the ob and they checked and all was well. I had had a negative HPT and waited several days and then got a positive. I knew I was pregnant since we were trying and I was keeping track. The baby in now almost 5 months. So, sometimes it just happens and does not end in a miscarriage.

Take care,

Doreen
