User :   According to online baby due calculators I am 9 weeks pregnant, I have not yet notified my doctor but today I have started bleeding with mild discomfort like period pains. I am not bleeding too heavily but am losing clots - am I miscarrying?
Doctor :   That is not normal
Doctor :   I will suspect and be alarmed
Doctor :   I will suggest you get the Ultrasound and serum Beta HCG level now
Doctor :   and after 3-4 days
Doctor :   If the beta HCG is increases in titers, u will be fine , if decreases , that means possible loss of preganncy
