Light spotting and bright red bleeding with small clots. Ultrasound-normal. No cramps or pain. Risks of miscarriage?

I have been having light spotting for 1 week and began to have bright red bleeding with very small clots for past 2 days. Ultrasound at 6 6/7 normal before bleeding, ultrasound at 7 5/7 normal after bleeding. No cramping or pain and nurse states hcg normal and good growth during the week. What are the risks of still having a miscarriage?

OBGYN 's  Response
As per your symptoms, you have a threatened abortion. The prognosis is guarded as the spotting has developed into a bleeding. The sonograms would need to be repeated coupled by serial serum beta-hCG titres to assess the status of the pregnancy. You should take absolute bed rest, avoid intercourse and all sorts of stress and eat easily digestible food and take plenty of liquids. You may need hormonal supplementation if necessary. Please follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Wish you good luck.
