I had absolutely NO spotting until 13.5 weeks. Then all of a sudden, I noticed quite a bit of rust-colored blood in the toilet after a BM. I didn't strain at all, so I was really shocked. It tapered off to a brown mucousy discharge which was there every time I wiped and thoroughly stained several panty liners. Anyway, I called my midwife and she said to come in right away. She found a strong heartbeat with the dopplar almost immediately (despite my retroverted uterus), so I was pretty relieved. I'm trying my best to think positively. Isn't hearing a good heartbeat at this point a good thing? She also checked my cervix and said it was closed and could see no sign of bleeding. Three days later, there's still occasional light brown mucous, mostly when I wipe. Sometimes if I cough or dry-heave, it actually gushes out a little. Sorry for the TMI.
My last pregnancy was a missed m/c. I had started spotting at 9 weeks but didn't actually miscarry until 12 weeks. The 10-wk u/s had revealed no heartbeat and that baby likely hadn't developed past 7 weeks.
So this current pregnancy, I'm much farther along and am hoping that the presence of a strong heartbeat (at almost 14 weeks) means things are ok. The midwife didn't seem that concerned about it. She said spotting is quite common. Does anyone think I should get an u/s to check for things like placenta previa? Or should I just assume that this will go away completely?
I have also had some light cramping and lower back pain yesterday, but figured that could also be due to a growing uterus. Am I freaking out unnecessarily?
Anyone have any thoughts or advice? Reassurances welcome, too! :-)
