    Vaginal bleeding at 5 weeks

    Im 37 and I found out two days ago that I’m pregnant (5wks), at first I was spotting brown discharge and it was only when I wiped, I went to the doctor for my confirmation of pregnancy, doctor did a vaginal exam, the next day my spotting increased and this time the blood is red and a light flow, some cramping off and on but very dull, not painful at all. I’ve read that some bleeding is common and could be several contributing factors. I told my doctor and she had me to do a blood test to test my hcg levels. I took one, my levels where consistent with pregnancy, my second test is Monday. My question is has anyone experienced vaginal bleeding and had a healthy pregnancy?

        Oh wow, how long has your bleeding lasted? I forgot to mention this is my second too, 13 yr difference. With my first, I didn’t have many symptoms in the beginning, I only knew I was pregnant because I missed my period. Same thing this time except now this vaginal bleeding is something I haven’t experienced.

    I'm 37 and pregnant with my 3rd child. I had slight bleeding in the beginning of my pregnancy. I too was worried as I have had 2 prior miscarriages. With my bleeding during my current pregnancy I too had brown blood, dr reassured me that it was "old" blood and nothing to be concerned about. At 12 weeks I had red blood but very slight and dr reassured me it was due to implantation. My Levels never changed. I am currently 33 weeks and 5 days. Don't stress yourself out over it.
