Ask the Midwife


I had my period 16 days ago. I have been off the pill for nearly 1 year and been trying to conceive only since my last period. I am feeling nauseous today and have had tender breasts for a few days. I did a pregnancy test today and it was negative. Could it be too early to detect bHCG? Is it possible that i still may be pregnant? I know i will soon know, if my period does not come.

Bleeding at Six Weeks

Cynthia Flynn's picture


I am 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. I have been having some vaginal bleeding. I am wearing a liner but the blood is only there when I wipe. I'm not having cramps or any bad discomfort, just the normal feelings when your tummy is preparing itself.

Please can you advise me if I need to seek help or advise or if I'm just being over sensitive?
