If you are bleeding you should be 'ruled-out' for a miscarriage, or even an 'incomplete' miscarriage, or to see if the pregnancy is still 'viable' - I am sorry that your 'providers' are making you wait. If you start to bleed even heavier, I would recommend a trip to the emergency room. Please take care.

If you are not continuing to bleed, you can wait, but my concern is, with continued bleeding, you can become anemic and if you do miscarry (and I'm saying you are)- but you could have an open cervix with tissue at the cervix and this could be an emergency - I usually ALWAYS try to see patients like you within 24 to 48 hours, not 2 weeks later. But, if you stopped bleeding, you should be fine. But, please eat well, drink plenty of fluids, and take your prenatal vitamins. Also, a MAJORITY of time, everything is okay, but I am a physician, and I don't like to see people worry for a long period of time. Please take care.
