Is it only me?

I'm 6 weeks pregnant now. I am 19. And last Friday I started spotting brown. A little later that day I started bleeding brighter red blood. Then it got heavier and the cramps were insane. But the hospital told me that I have to wait until Monday. I visited my OB on Monday and they drew some blood and are gonna trap my levels to see if they are going up or down. But they also did an u/s and I seen the baby and his/her heart beat :) it was amazing. But now I have to wait 2 weeks until my next appointment and they said that it could be a miscarriage or something else completely. Didn't give me many answers :( and now I am sitting here hopeless for the next two weeks not having any idea what is happening! I am still bleeding. So it has been 6 days now. And its about a medium flow like a normal period. And the cramps are a little worse then what I have on periods. I forgot to put on friday, Saturday, and Sunday I was passing tissue but that has stopped. Has this happened to anyone? Was it a good or bad ending? I've asked and done everything I can with a doctor. Now I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced this? Thank you Mommies!

I would definitely go to a different hospital. I had my miscarriage last year. I started spotting brown and went to the hospital that night. They told me I was having a threatened miscarriage and to rest. The spotting continued for a week or 2. Not much cramping at all. But one night the cramps intensified and my back was killing me.. bleeding picked up. The next morning I woke up to a big wod of tissue. Went to the Dr that day and as I was peeing into the drs cup, the placenta fell out. I would suggest definitely going to a different doctor because things change in a heart beat.

Yea that's more than spotting. If you're passing tissue you may be having a miscarriage go to the er and demand to see another doctor

Yes spotting is completely normal but you are not just spotting. With my last pregnancy everyone told me I would be fine and spotting is normal and it ended up being a miscarriage. The fact that you were passing tissue is a huge warning sign. Like me and the other two ladies suggested, go to the ER, don't wait 2 weeks for your doctors appointment because this is something to worry about. There is still a chance everything could be OK but you shouldn't assume that any bleeding is fine, especially when you are bleeding, in pain, and passing tissue. I hope everything is OK, and I'm not trying to sound harsh I'm just being honest.

hey girl! I'm 19 and pregnant also. I've heard that spotting is completely normal. it's just a simple pregnancy symptom. I would suggest that you think positive and try not to worry. just believe that you and your baby are okay. the more worry the worse you feel mentally and physically. I will pray for you! feel better. God bless.

Sorry to say but it sounds like a miscarriage. When I had my miscarriage last year it started off with light bleeding then it got heavier. Soon I started having what felt like really bad period cramps and I passed tissue. After my miscarriage I continued to bleed for about 2 weeks and it got lighter every day and the pain went away after about a week. I would go to the ER if I were you. They'll do blood tests and check your hcg levels, do another ultrasound, and give you pain pills.
