Ok so this is kind of a long story. I am currently 6w1d pregnant according to my LMP.
In February this year I miscarried at 7 weeks. Baby was measuring at 5w1d by dating scan and not long after that I followed with brown bleeding and then eventually bright red bleeding and excruciating pain along with dropping hcg levels so I knew what was coming.
So after all this I am now petrified about this pregnancy. I have had brown but light bleeding a couple of times now.. Nothing too heavy.. Not enough to fill a pad or even a liner. I also had a light pink discharge. Only a very little bit. I have the flu at the moment and am not taking anything but I have had very full kn sneezing and I've been so worried its going to trigger a miscarriage. I took another pregnancy test today and the line was a bit lighter then when I first found out I was pregnant (both first responses)
I am booked in on tuesday for a dating and validity scan. So I have fingers crossed but I was hoping someone could give me some insight and maybe been through something similar?
Thank you xx

Hi kimmy t,
Haven't been in your exact situation but I miscarried at 8 weeks last year much the same as you describe. I'm pregnant again and at 6weeks3days I started spotting and totally freaked out and thought it was all over again.
The spotting didn't get worse so I went to an early pregnancy assessment clinic and had an ultrasound then and there and everything showed to be ok, and the bleeding stopped not long after.
I am now 10 weeks and all is looking good. I know not everyone's situation is the same but wanted to give you some hope, and let you know that I get what you're going through. Thinking of you xx

I have also read that once HCG gets high enough, HPT's can show up lighter and sometimes negative
