Hi everyone,

I'm 14 weeks and 3 days pregnant with my second child, my first pregnancy and delivery went perfectly.

So, last night I was taken into hospital with v.bleeding. There was quite alot... It soaked through my underwear and trousers. I also had really bad pains in my lower abdomen. Naturally I was in an absolute state as I thought the worst.

They gave me an internal exam and said my cervix was completely closed so there was nothing to worry about and sent me home, telling me to come back if it gets worse.

The bleeding has slowed down but I'm still spotting and I'm still cramping. This does not feel normal at all. Is there anything that can cause this without being the beginnings of a miscarrige??

Any help would be great!

Thanks, Sheona

Re: Miscarriage??

I had bleeding with clots at 12 weeks. They did an U/S and founf it was a slight placenta previa- the placenta was over the cervix. I went on to have a healthy pregnancy without any more bleeding. Were they able to tell you the source of the bleeding?

Good Luck

Re: Miscarriage??

Thanks for your reply!

I started bleeding again today and ended up back at the hospital. This time they did an ultrasound. Baby is fine at the moment; great!

They didn't give me a name for what is happening but apparently part of the placenta has broken away and is loose in my uterus. There's still some inside me which the doc says will inevitably cause another bleed. He says it'll either get rid of all the loose bit and that'll be that, or it'll cause a bigger bleed and maybe miscarriage. He offered me a bed in the hospital but I didn't want to stay; if it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen, they wont be able to stop it. We live quite close anyway so it'll be easy to drive back in.

Fingers crossed!!
