Twice now I have had bleeding in this pregnancy (I am about 12 and a half weeks). Both times it's been after I have "exerted" myself more than usual. I use quotations because I'm not really doing that much. I have a two year old and we have come down with multiple colds since I became pregnant, so most of this pregnancy things have been pretty low key. About six weeks ago we were feeling good, so I took DS for a good walk. It really made me tired and I felt a strong desire to rest, which I did. And then I started bleeding. Not a ton, and no cramps, but bright red on and off for most of a day. Had an ultrasound, everything looks normal.
Yesterday I did a good cleaning of the house while DS was sleeping, and when I was done I got that same strong urge to rest, which again was followed by bright red bleeding, no cramps. The bleeding was much briefer this time, so I'm not worried about a miscarriage or anything...but it does make me concerned about becoming "high risk". If this were just occasional sporadic bleeding, I know that can be normal, what makes me concerned is that this is precipitated by some very slight exercise.
Does this mean that I may need bedrest at some point? What happens when the baby gets bigger, is this going to be a problem? Has this happened to anyone before, ANY insight would be much appreciated!
Thanks for sharing your experience!! Did you continue on with the zumba as usual?
