Mary-Ellen - February 6

Hi, I have had some brown spotting today and a few weeks ago, i am 13 weeks 2 days and i am worried. I called my midwife and she said it's quite common to experience this but i am still worried as i have been quite stressed lately due to a difficult 4 year old. My first pregnancy had no problems so this is new to me and i was wondering if anyone has had the same happen to them. Please help i'm worried!!!

Relax, it is very common, I had bleeding, which we later found out is from a subchorionic hematoma. But there are so many reasons it could be from. I would suggest what my OB has told me, pelvic rest for a few weeks, no heavy lifting, no s_x, rest. You will probably be fine. The brown spotting is old blood so nothing is activally bleeding and that is a good thing. Sometimes when the placenta is forming blood vessels can bleed and that can cause spotting. But again, the brown is old blood.

Thanks for your reply, i am more at ease now, the spotting has stopped and i'm restings as much as possible. I guess i'm just a little paranoid because we tried for a year to fall pregnant so this baby is very much wanted and long over due in our eyes. Thanks again for your kind words

Mary-Ellen; I had brown spotting for several weeks on and off during my first pregnancy with my DD, and like jen327 it was caused by a subchorionic haematoma. Everything turned out well, and after week 13 it tapered off.....and I gave birth to a very healthy baby girl. My OB told me at the time, that as long as a strong HB was detectable on U/S and that everything looked good, then the chances of the pregnancy continuing were high. Good luck!!
