possible miscarriage?

Hi.
I'm 20 and I was a week late for my period so I took two home pregnancy test that both came out positive. That same day I started spotting which grew into more like a regular flow with cramping. Nothing too painful though. That was 5 days ago. I still have tender breasts, really tired, cravings, feeling nauseous, all that. Did I have a miscarriage?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would want you to come in for blood tests.
I would want to do a quantitative beta hcg--blood pregnancy test.
I would possibly do an ultrasound then based on the level.  If the level was too low (less than 1000) I would want to repeat the test in 48 hours to see if it was doubling.  I would also probably do a progesterone test as well to help determine if the pregnancy is going to miscarry.
That is the way to know for certain what is going on!
Good luck!
Dr B

Its possible you had a chemical miscarriage. Some people do bleed like that while pregnant though. Did you take another test? Either way I would go to the doctor.

Could be m/c a twin. Or not impossible that its implantation bleeding from the embryo nesting deeper in your womb.

If you have a positive pregnancy test your pregnant. You need to have blood work done regardless of bleeding. Schedule an appt soon to make sure you're healthy.
