I've been poking around quite a bit, but can't find an old thread about bleeding during pregnancy. Can anyone help with some experienced insights?
I'm 14w preg with third pregnancy (miscarried naturally in September). I had a big bleed yesterday (soaked a pad in an hour) and when straight to the ER. I'd just gotten home from a routine visit with OB. They gave me an extensive ultrasound (the baby is fine so far!!) and found a little bleeding coming from a tear between the placenta and the uterus. The placenta does not present low except during a contraction.
My fabulous MD (she's had 3 home births herself) said to be on "vaginal rest" but did not indicate that I needed bed rest or any other remedy. I'm still spotting bright red today but really only seeing it in the toilet and when I wipe. I've been resting and laying around much of the day. I was also having quite a few uterine contractions (no cramps or pain) last night and earlier today.
Any advice? Bed rest? Anyone continued bleeding throughout with happy results?
