    Default Placenta bleeding

    Hi ladies, im 15 weeks & 5 days. Had a pretty big bleed yesterday so was at hospital terrified. Luckily scan showed baby is doing fine with strong heartbeat but they detected some blood coming from placenta (which is anterior). Doc has just told me to rest as much as possible & I will have to be scanned every 2 weeks to monitor bleeding. Had another bleed this morning which he told me to expect as he could see blood on scan & he said it would come out. He just says as long as it doesnt get heavier or i dont have severe pain then it should resolve itself. This doesnt stop me panicking at every twinge & im so emotional today. Anybody have similar with a good outcome?? Absolutely terrified 😢

    Never had this, I just got heaps of contractions from this stage. My hubbies an ob and has had some patients with bleeding at this stage and all was well, but obviously it's concerning. Good luck.

    I had a bleed at 14 weeks with my second. Was a gush of red blood at the start, then 2 weeks of brown blood. Scans all looked good and my DD is now 4 years old

    Almost exactly what Hollywood wrote but I bled slightly longer. Massive gush like I had wet myself at 14 weeks but it was blood. Went to like a period for a week. Then the blood turned brown on and off for a few weeks. I had lots of scans but they never found anything.

    I did have an amnio at around 20 weeks and the placenta was very dark in colour from the bleeding.

    All went fine though.

    I bleed almost continuously from 14 weeks to 23 weeks. Ended up hospitalised numerous times and had 4 blood transfusions. My DD is almost 3 and absolutely perfect. Scariest time of my life, but somehow it all worked out. Good luck. Feet up and don't do a thing.

    I was hospitalised at 14 weeks with a huge bleed...turned out to be a blood clot on my cervix...bled for a few weeks like af then had spotting for a few more weeks. I was told to rest a lot while it was going on. I am now 26 weeks and all is going well

    Best of luck with your pregnancy, I know how scary bleeding can be!

    If you rest a lot make sure you hammer the fibre. I stayed in bed a week scared to move and when I finally did start moving OMG I was trapped in the work toilets in agony and had to phone my sister to support me getting a huge po0 out.

    TMI?

    Thank you all for your replies. I had one small bleed again the day after hospital visit but doc told me to expect that as he had seen blood on my scan. Resting as much as possible though I have two kids to look after. Must stock up on pear & prune juice, since iv been sitting so much iv had terrible wind pains during the night. Counting the days until next scan & feeling a little more positive having had no blood pass in the last 48hrs. Thank you all ladies 😊

    I had bleeding with my third pregnancy, it was so scary as it was bright red and enough to warrant wearing pads 😔, I also had two other small kiddies, which made resting/taking it east/not lifting almost impossible, but Op, I'm pleased to say that baby had perfect apgars and is now 5 years old. 😊
    I hope it settles for you, as I can certainly sympathise with the worry of it all.
