I am 6 weeks pregnant. I started bleeding Tuesday of last week. I went for an ultrasound on Thursday and everything looked good, they are just going to monitor the baby's growth. After the ultrasound I had small clots the size of the tip of my finger nail. Friday I had one the size of a cherry, and on Saturday I had one pretty large clot. I was so upset that on Sunday I bought another pregnancy to check and see if I am still pregnant. It says I am. I am not sure how reliable that is though. I don't understand why I am clotting or bleeding, or what the clots are. I am 29 and this is my third pregnancy. I have never had a miscarriage and never bled with my last two pregnancies. I am not in any pain, and haven't been at all this entire pregnancy. Some days are worse as far as how heavy I bleed. I go back for another ultrasound this Thursday. My doc. mentioned bed rest, but she wants to wait and see how the baby develops within the week. If the baby grows and is healthy I believe she was considering putting me on bedrest. I'm not looking forward to that, but I will do whatever it takes to have a healthy baby. Many women I know have bled throughout their pregnancies. My mother bled during both of her pregnancies. A friend bled her entire pregnancy and another friend bled for the first three months of one of her pregnancies. Their stories have made me a little more optimistic and I am praying that everything works out for the best, although I am still very worried.View Thread
