Very confused about this whole pregnancy

Hi, this will be my 3rd child, according to my calculations I should be at least 8 weeks but when I had my ultrasound it showed that I am only 5 weeks 3 days, about 3 weeks ago I had a very light pink bleed and again a couple of days later, but the morning of my ultrasound which was 4 days ago I had a quite heavy red bleed and I have been bleeding ever since with little clots throughout with period pain and the bleeding doesn't seem to be slowing down I went to the hospital 3 days ago when the pain was starting and they did another ultrasound and blood test and both tests showed up that I am around 5 weeks pregnant, I'm having another blood test tomorrow to see if my hcg? levels are going up, but my question for you is have u heard of this before? Am I having a miscarriage? Has anyone else experienced this before? Etc?
Thanks

You might have had a miscarriage and now are on a new pregnancy, thus explaining why you think you are at 8 weeks but are really only at 5.  This would explain a little light bleeding 3 weeks ago also.

My husband works away and we only had sex that once 8weeks ago And then again 4 weeks ago, so I just don't know how I could be 5 and a bit weeks pregnant, I should of wrote that in my post as well and I'm still bleeding quite heavy, I wouldn't call the pain terrible it feels more like period cramping

Well, as you know if this is your third child, when a medical person tells you that you are "x weeks pregnant," he or she is not referring to the presumed date of conception, but to the presumed first day of your last period.  If you had sex about four weeks ago, that would make sense.  His sperm would still be in your system for 5 days after the sex, and you would have ovulated at the "3 week 3 day" point by the medical count.  Plenty of chance for it to be him from the visit 4 weeks ago.
