if you got positive result you were definitely pregnant then. spotting/light period and cramping in very early stages is quite common, so there's no reason to think you're not still pregnant today!! x


Thanks tazmania...Right now I've some bleeding like periods.Im worried about it...


maybe go to see your GP - he/she may do another test (maybe blood test rather than urine sample?) and it's possible he/she might refer you to the early pregnancy unit for them to see what's going on. not sure what the protocol is but worth speaking to a professional. fingers crossed for you x


If you have lower back pain you will proably have a miscarriage. If your having sex do it gentle. i went through that before. Jst take it easy and don't stress hope everything is well.


Hi the fact that you got a positive HPT means you are pregnant. bleeding/spotting in early pregnancy is common but needs attention. I have had two miscarriages and both started with spotting in early pregnancy, I wish that's not the case for you. Please go to A and E and ask them to refer you to the Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit in your local hospital. they look after women having issues in early pregnancy and do scans/ bloods tests to confirm the gestation and outcome of pregnancy. good luck and take care
