I am so tired of bleeding!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

We're fine, LO and I both. But I've been having anything from what my midwife calls "sludge" (need I say more? No, I don't think I will!) to moderate, "Ok, if this gets ANY heavier or doesn't stop in an hour, I'm going to be driving to the clinic STAT" red bleeding, both with and without cramping, since two days before I found out I was pregnant. I'm now 12 weeks, and it's not happening as frequently, but still, about twice a week or so...there it is again. I've had 3 appointments with my CNM, everything's going swimmingly. Numbers are good, little niblet is even sucking his thumb on the ultrasound now - SO stinkin' cute. But still, every time I see this happen again, a tiny part of me gets scared.


I look on it as the universe's way of reminding me to relax and stop trying to control everything, or be perfect, but I'm so over it.

Hugs, mama! I'm going through something similar--had a subchorionic bleed at 7.5 weeks that resolved itself, but then this past weekend at 10.5 weeks I had brown and red spotting. greensad.gif Thank god the midwife saw me on Sunday so I could stop thinking of all the what-ifs--turns out I have a very irritated cervix that is prone to bleeding now! The midwife likened my cervix to a skinned knee! redface.gif At least I have answers and everything is well, but I keep thinking WHY can't I just have an uneventful, no bleeding pregnancy??

Hang in there! Hopefully it goes away as the second trimester progresses!

Thank you, hugs are very, very welcome. :-) I wondered if that was my case, too, but CNM says my cervix is "pristine." Oy. I mean, thanks, but...um? So glad you have answers!

So sorry to hear you've been dealing with that stress. I've had some spotting here and there and although the baby is fine my heart just about stops each time I see blood and I convince myself it's over. Turns out I have a polyp on my cervix. A good friend of mine had a full-blown pseudo-period when she was pregnant. We'll never fully understand the mysteries of pregnancy. Glad to hear your LO is okay.
