bleeding in early pregnancy

Worried About Bleeding During Pregnancy

Dear Midwife,
Yesterday I went to the e.r. because I've been bleeding for 2 weeks, prior to which I'd been about a month and half late. They did some tests and came back and told me I'm 6 weeks pregnant. Not that I'm miscarrying, but that I'm pregnant. Is this normal?

I just don't understand why I'm bleeding. It scares me. They want me to go next week to try and get a heartbeat. I don't really "feel" like I've miscarried. I feel pregnant.

Pregnancy Problems

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
Please, could you help me? I’m about 7 weeks pregnant; I’ve been having quite a few problems.

I started with really bad pains a few weeks ago, so went for scan (12.Jan.2009) which couldn’t see anything but a tiny sac measuring 3 mm. I thought I was nearly 6 weeks (my last period was 2.Dec.2008) but they said 4 and a half.
