Hello,



I was just wondering if this is normal or happens in alot of pregs.

I ended up bleeding quite alot (bright red) today and was fearing
that I was miscarrying. Went to the clinic did blood work HCG is
39,461 (is that a good number to be at with 6w6days). Anyways
had u/s done still saw yolk sac and heart beat of the baby. RE stated
it was normal due to the embryo implanting itself at the next stage. He
had mentioned that as the hair like fingers implant deeper into the
lining there are blood vessels and they build up and can make a clot
under embryo if ruptures than one could loose the embryo as well.

In my case the blood vessles leaked into the womb away from the
embryo and is just dispelling. He stated it was better this way. Advised
1 week off work and to relax it should stop within a week.

I thought that the embryo imbeds within 10 days and you can get
break through bleeding then but not at this stage. U/S tec thought
she saw a tear but wasn't sure, brought in radiologist and she stated
no everything was ok. However I was in tears and upset.

Will be 7 weeks on Friday and having another u/s on May 13/04.

Could you give me any info and what I could do to help this
preg thrive.

Thanks

This sounds Ok to me

I agree

In my case the blood vessles leaked into the womb away from the
embryo and is just dispelling. He stated it was better this way. Advised
1 week off work and to relax it should stop within a week.

I agree with this also

I thought that the embryo imbeds within 10 days and you can get
break through bleeding then but not at this stage. U/S tec thought
she saw a tear but wasn't sure, brought in radiologist and she stated

This is understandable. It is important to trust the people caring for you and to try to relax as much as possible. I know that this is difficult when worrying things happen.

Relax and think positive!

Good luck!
