I've found lots of threads looking for reassurance about the bleeding, I'm still waiting for my next scan to confirm that there is a healthy bubba in the sac seen at the last scan, but I am just assuming that I'm just having one of 'those' pregnancies. I do need some practical advice though! Sorry they are are a bit TMI!
Firstly, there seem to be a lot of 'rest, feet up' recommendations - but did this actually help slow the bleeding? Or was there anything specific that you found made it worse/better? I know when I rest a lot the bleeding doesn't 'come out' as much, but then tends to all come at once when I go to the loo - so I figure I'm still bleeding the same, just not seeing it on a pad.
Secondly, can you use tampons occasionally? I usually go swimming with DD once a week and it's been nearly a month of bleeding with no end in sight. Or do I just have to resign myself to missing out on this?
Finally, any tips on staying 'fresh' when needing to wear a pad all the time? My bleeding's gotten a bit heavy for a breathable liner now and I'm worried I'll start to get thrush due to a lack of air flow.
Thanks in advance!
