I had a mc at 7 weeks, and again at 6 weeks. With both of them I had negative preg. test about a week after the bleeding started. But they were always kind of week positives to begin with. And when I started bleeding I just had a feeling that things were not working right and that it was a mc. But it never hurts to double check with a doc. I did the first time but not the second time. We don't have the best health care and sometimes its better to stay far, far away! But if your midwife is out of town, and you're comfortable with waiting to see her thats ok too I think. I'd just watch for anything weird like heavy bleeding, cramping, fever. Good luck!
