Bleeding during pregnancy, just a little PSA!

Bleeding During Pregnancy, Just A Little Psa! - Pregnancy - 2021

A short but important heads-up should you ever notice bleeding or spotting during pregnancy!

If you notice bleeding at ALL during your pregnancy, call your provider!⁣

Yes, a few little spots seem like no big deal, but in reality, spotting can certainly be a cause for concern. It can be a sign that your cervix is dilating, or that it’s from your placenta. ⁣

So, unless you’ve gotten specific instructions from your provider regarding your bleeding status, always always always call if you notice blood, regardless of how many weeks you are. 💗⁣

Just a little reminder (thanks to @mommy.labornurse for the visual) 🙌

  1. I’ll never forget when they did my ultra sound in the hospital and they didn’t hear a heartbeat. And then they check me down there and could see I was beginning to miscarry

  2. I was 9 weeks pregnant when I started to bleed one night. I asked my partner to take me to hospital to make sure im ok and the babies ok. The triage staff laughed at me and was like your in early stages it’s fine go home. I demanded to see a know because my gut instinct was telling me somethings wrong. The nurse confirmed my fears I was miscarrying. It was Christmas Eve and I was 19 and i feel like the triage nurses were being lazy cuz it Christmas and judging me because I was so young. It’s a horrible feeling but always go with your gut instinct and im glad I did. The nurses let me stay for as long as I needed too and made sure I was comfortable and gave me pain meds. The nurses were lovely

  3. When I was pregnant the first time i was spotting in my second trimester and they said it’s probably normal and to take it easy cause it started happening after I had sex and that’s what probably caused it and then it got a little worse so we went in and they did a ultrasound and the baby wasn’t moving much and didn’t seem to have grown from the last time I saw her but I thought things were still ok cause she still had a heartbeat. Then it went away for a day or two then at 3 a.m. I woke up to so much blood and i lost her at home. So when I got pregnant with my rainbow baby any spot of blood I went in. I ended up having a subchoronic hemorrhage but it went away. Now I have a beautiful almost 3 month old baby girl💜

  4. I started spotting at 10.5 weeks. Called my dr as we had just had an ultrasound a week before and everything was ok, the receptionist told me that “spotting was normal and no need to actually take an appointment spot.” I was having a miscarriage. I promptly changed doctors after my D&C.

  5. Anyway to combat the pain when being checked for dilation? I was checked once on an ER visit around 28 weeks (babe was 100% fine) but it hurt SO BAD. I’m 37 this week and have to start being checked

  6. Each of my 4 pregnancies it was something different. My first 2 bleeding couldnt be explained but my midwife was amazing and always validated my concerns and made me feelnlike my babies were safe. My 3rd had bleeding at 7 weeks and came to find out when she was born she was a twin and the other one passed thats why I had the bleeding. With my last one had subcorionic hemorrhaging due to having a d&c after my daughter was born. Also had placenta preview. Had crazy bleeding on and off for 10 weeks. It was terrifying but my dr always made me feel safe and always told me to go to the hospital regardless even if the baby was too small to be saved. He always told me to go in to his office if I had spotting or bleeding to do an ultrasound to make me feel okay and calm and make sure my baby was okay. I know have a healthy happy handsome 5 month old baby boy. Felt like I went through hell but he was worth it every time. All my kids were worth the scary part of bleeding and spotting.

  8. i have learned that there are certain things you have to exaggerate a little when talking to care providers. do NOT say “spotting” “a little” or anything that would let them think they can just write you off. you have to firmly tell them there Is Something Wrong and you are coming in and getting help regardless of what they think. if you are bleeding, you have to firmly tell them “I am bleeding and very concerned, and I need to know if something is wrong and I am not going to leave until I know it will be okay.” be firm. be strong. and watch out for yourself, because at the end of the day it is gonna be you and only you who always has to have your back.

  9. When I was in my first or second trimester, I was bleeding. Like it was my period. I went to the ER. I was told to be on bed rest. They checked baby, baby was fine “swimming” happily. Baby turns 9 in less then a week 😊
