What is the sack of the baby and what does it mean if the sack is low? Found out friday I have a threatened miscarriage due to the sack of the baby being low. The bleeding is still continue in form of period light pink discharge.

What is the sack of the baby and what does it mean if the sack is low? Found out friday I have a threatened miscarriage due to the sack of the baby being low. The bleeding is still continue in form of period light pink discharge.

The: The "sack of the baby" is likely the amnion, which encases the amniotic fluid. Having a "low" sack is not very common or a recognized complication in pregnancy. It is possible to have the pregnancy be in an abnormal location (like the cervix, which would be really low!), but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

I am pregnant and I am having light pink discharge or blood. Could this be a miscarriage? I am 7 weeks pregnant with my first child, and I am eighteen. Just started taking vitiams, having a little stomache ache tonight. I found the discharge on the tissue

Some: Some women do have light bleeding during the first trimester when the fetus implants into the uterus. Please contact your gynecologist for an evaluation. White discharge is normal during pregnancy but if it is an excessive amount or you have the itching then it may be an infection. If you are having continued bleeding, have any pain, feel light headed, or have new complaints then you should be seen immediately. ...Read more

I don't know if I have had a miscarriage or chemical pregnancy or still pregnant I recently took 8 pregnancy tests;turned out positive, I started to have brownish discharge (very little) and then lite pink one day after missed period. My period is clockwo

I don't know if I have had a miscarriage or chemical pregnancy or still pregnant I recently took 8 pregnancy tests;turned out positive, I started to have brownish discharge (very little) and then lite pink one day after missed period. My period is clockwo

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

Pregnant/miscarriage? My period came 5 days early today. Severe sore breasts, yellowish-pink vag discharge beforehand. Yes unprotected sex w/ partner.

Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
