Do cramping and spotting at 8 weeks mean I have had a miscarriage?

Do cramping and spotting at 8 weeks mean I have had a miscarriage?

Might be warnings: It is important to stay calm, get information and stay positive even if the news is not reassuring. Stress itself is not good for mom. Later in pregnancy it might affect the fetus negatively (we don't know about the 8-week embryo). So any woman with cramping and spotting should see her OB doctor, determine if the fetal heart beat is present, learn the cause of bleeding, do her best to rest/relax. ...Read more

The : The short answer here is to see your doctor for a serum (blood) pregnancy test. If the test is positive (the result will be a number) then a repeat test will be done about 2-3 days later to see if the number is increasing, which means the pregnancy is progressing. Otherwise if it is negative then you probably had a complete miscarriage given the fact that 8 pregnancy tests were postive prior to the bleeding. All the best. ...Read more

I had a pap smear 3 days ago the first day i had spotting but the next 2 i have been having heavy bleeding. I have POS should i be concerned?

Post Pap bleeding: At 34 there are many women who have chronic inflammation of the cervix (entrance to the womb) from where a pap smear is taken. The inflamed area can cause persistent bleeding, but should resolve. If the bleeding continues, go back to the provider who performed the pap smear and have an exam. ...Read more

Had heavy bleeding with lumps at 8 weeks pregnant. Sonar showed baby had heartbeat and fine. Now I have brown spotting that won't stop.  Should i worr?

Probably ok: Brown spotting is old blood. It's a good sign that it's not bright red. If there was previously heavy bleeding, there was probably a small collection of blood somewhere that is now being released. If you feel fine otherwise, it's ok to watch for now. Be sure to mention it to your doctor at the next appointment. ...Read more
