    hello, im about 6 and a half weeks pregnant, i went to the hospital with heavy bleeding on saturday, they did my blood pressure and other tests, then told me that they didnt think i was having a miscarriage, just a threatened miscarriage and just to go to see my doctor tomorrow, but i am still bleeding with horrible stomach pains, just wondering if anyone bled with cramps for a long time in the beginning of there pregnancy. Thanks Lexie

    Hi sweetie, so sorry you're going through this! I'm bleeding too (although mine is only light spotting atm) so I know how horrible it feels, its really scary. I've read lots of stories online about women who have had even quite heavy bleeding and had healthy babies, so please try and stay positive hun although I know how hard it is.

    Good luck with the doctor tomorrow hun, maybe see if he can refer you back to the hospital? Surely at 6 and a half weeks they will be able to investigate a bit more/hear a heartbeat on a very early scan? That might reassure you. Let us know how you get on, sending you all the positive thoughts in the world xxx

    Google your nearest Early Pregnancy Unit and get your Dr to refer you (or better still go as a walk in if they accept walk-ins)

    They should scan you at 6.5 weeks and they may blood test you as well to check you hCG levels

    Good luck!

    Hope everything is ok for you sweetheart. Like others have said, the early pregnancy unit at your nearest hospital is the best place as they can give you an early scan. Take good care of yourself. :hugs:
