For almost the past 2 weeks I've had some light bleeding. At first it started out brown, my doctor brought me in and did a Pap smear and said its normal and its old blood (I was about 6.5 weeks then). After that exam is when the spotting picked up. Christmas Eve it began to get a little more of a dark red and noticed it would lessen once I was off my feet and didn't occur when I was sleeping. I spoke with the doctor again last night and got in for an ultrasound this morning. They measured me at 4.9 weeks and there is a sac but nothing in it, so recheck in 2 weeks. They aren't thinking it will progress, and is a blighted ovum. Not having much hope here....hope your doctors will listen to you more than mine did since the doctor today said that I should have never been told everything was fine without an ultrasound. I know I told my family early (on Christmas) and I'm sad to have to tell them, but at least I have a big support system.
