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!

I'd try not to worry about it. I had this once after I overdid it in Zumba, and the midwife didn't even bat an eyelash. I haven't had any problems since then! It's so hard to relax, but it is more than likely fine. hug.gif

Thanks for sharing your experience!! Did you continue on with the zumba as usual?
