    Default Could she be still pregnant??

    I'm posting for a friend. She tested positive with a digital Friday morning ( day her period was due) this was positive 1-2 weeks. She started bleeding yesterday ' like a period' but heavier and crampy. We thought chemical pregnancy. She did another digital this morning and it was still positive. Is there anyway she could still be pregnant, she is off to the docs tomorrow. Fingers crossed as they would dearly love a bub and have been trying for awhile.

    I had a bleed when I was 6 weeks with a little cramping which ended in a miscarriage.
    I also had a bleed at 7 weeks with this pregnancy with some cramping and now have a healthy almost 4 month old. It's hard to tell with out a blood test and ultra sound. Fingers crossed or your friend, hope they get some good news.

    Chemicals you don't usually get really heavy bleeding bc it doesn't implant. I lost a baby very early on a bit over a year ago and it had def implanted based on the bleeding.

    Having said that, not every bleed means a m/c

    It's a hard one she is staying here for support, because her husband is away, we were googling chemical pregnancies and they all said positives went to negatives usually before the bleed started and then the bleed was quite light. She has heavy bleeding and cramps. It sounded like a pregnancy further along caused more miscarriage like symptoms and a lingering positive. She is certain of her dates though last period was 21/12 and she ovulated 4/01. She would only be just pregnant. We are over thinking like mad, which I guess is normal.

    Even if it is a mc, unfortunatly there is nothing that can be done. I would suggest taking some iron tablets and have an ultrasound tomoro. If she goes to a gp they can ring from their rooms and get an u/s within a few hours. Just to make sure it is not ectopic. If it is just a regular mc then she will be ok. It is very common. xxx

    I had cramping from about 3 weeks to 6 weeks, then from 6 weeks I've been spotting lightly, freaked out and went to the hospital but he was all fine. Unfortunately In your case though, the doctor told me that cramping by itself is fine, spotting by itself is generally ok, it's when the 2 are together there is a high chance of an issue. I really hope your friend gets the outcome she wants though, good luck.

    It doesn't look good, she is still bleeding with the cramps, and upper leg and back pain, she said its just like a period , the bleeding has lessened today though.

    Another possibility is a sub chorionic haematoma. Only an ultrasound will tell, but they may not be able to give her a definitive answer with an ultrasound for a few weeks, as she may need to wait until the time they would have expected to see a heartbeat (around 7 wks from memory). I wish her well - I've been in the same situation she is in and I found I just wanted to know what was happening and felt like I was stuck in limbo waiting to find out for sure.
