I am hoping that someone has a similar story that they can share that has a positive and happy outcome. Long story short I had my first positive HPT on 8/31/2012 after being 10 days late for my period. That afternoon I started barely spotting very light brown, over the next couple days it increased in spotting but was still brown, I look online and read a bunch of different postings saying that it is probaby just implantation spotting and the release of "old" blood, hence the brown color. Well the next Tuesday, 9/4/2012, I started spotting bright red, which I had read was a warning and porbably not good. Well, it has increased to just more than spotting, maybe a super light period. I went into ER 9/4/2012, when the bright red started, and they did a pelvic and blood tests to test for RH and test my antibodies and to see how far along I was. They determined that I was 4 weeks, roughly, but everything else came back fine. They said to get in to see an OB and to keep an eye on things, told me to watch for clotting, heavy bleeding and/or excrutiating cramping. I made an appointment and saw an OB this past Friday and they tested my HCG levels and they were good. They had gone from 250 in the ER last Tuesday to 667 on Friday. My question is... Even with no cramping/pain and no clotting, when should the bleeding worry me? Doc said that they would be doing an ultrasound probably next week, but they have to wait until my HCG levels reach 6000.
Does anyone have any input? I mean the doc has said that more than likely everything is ok but I have been bleeding lightly for a week now. Makes me wonder! Any feedback would be awesome! I appreciate it!View Thread
