Six Weeks Pregnancy Concerns

I just found out on nov 5th that I am approximately 6 weeks pregnant. A week before I was supposed to start my period when obviously I did not, although I did have spotting after having sex. Is this normal? I also have been much more tired with this pregnancy than with my daughter's. I understand that all pregnancy's are different so is this just a normal difference and I don't have to be concerned? I hear a lot about bleeding later in the pregnancy and how it can be because of miscarriage or early delivery... what are the reasons for early pregnancy bleeding and bleeding after sex. Could it simply be that I had a little bit of bleeding because it was around the normal menstrual time? Thanks for any input you can give.

Re: Six Weeks Pregnancy Concerns

the same thing happened to me - my Doc said it was b/c of sex.

Re: Six Weeks Pregnancy Concerns

When you are pregnant, your cervix gets swollen and more tender and fills with blood. My Dr said a little bleeding isn't uncommon in pregnancy due to these issues. However, that said, if you are worried enough about it then maybe abstain for the rest of the first trimester. The best way to find out if your pregnancy is viable is to have an early u/s done and see the heart beating. If it's over 90 at 6 weeks then everything looks good!!
