Anyone out there with this? Starting last Sunday 11/12 I've had spotting every day. The first few days there was a lot of blood and I freaked. I called my MW and she said I couldn't do much but bedrest and try to relax. We had an ultrasound Monday 11/13 and they couldn't find why I was bleeding. That was at 19 weeks so that was our '20' week ultrasound. Baby was fine, they think it's a BOY, heartbeat was strong, all good, etc. but i'm still having minimal spotting.

Anyone know why this might be?

Thanks!

Debbie

Sorry, no experience or insight. I am assuming that this wasn't after lovemaking? That is my only guess= I am sure others have a ton more info.

Are you drinking enough water?

Now and then there can be an infection on the cervix that could cause it, might ask your mw about that. I don't think it's too common.
Or it could just be a broken blood vessel that hasn't healed yet.
When they did the ultrasound did they thoroughly check the placenta to make sure it wasn't bleeding?
Since baby is strong and healthy I'm sure it will be fine- but be insistent with the care you want, so you won't worry about it.
I hope it stops soon!
