Anyone Have Bleeding Late In Pregnancy

grace2 - September 25

Hi ladies, Less than 2 weeks before my due date and I am so nervous. This morning I had what seemed like alot of bleeding after s_x which may be due in part to the mixing of fluids (sorry if TMI). We went to the hospital right away and they ruled out placenta previa or abrubtion. I have no pain and it is probably cervix related but It just seemed like alot of blood. I feel so frustrated because the hospital staff would not give me any conclusive answer. The bleeding has stopped now but it still worries me. Has anybody been through this?

Yes, I have problems wtih bleeding after s_x, internal exams, even difficult poo-poo's. My doctor said I have two prominant blood vessles on the outside of my cervix, and with the pregnancy making my cervix even more sensitive than normal, I can bleed very easily. I went to the hospital at around 22 weeks the last time it happened (I'm 27 weeks now), was put on monitors and sent home with a clean bill of health. That's good you went to the hospital so they could check you out. Fortuantely, you're so close to your due date, if you do go into labor you and the baby should be fine, especially if this was just your "bloody show" starting. If they already ruled out placenta previa, you're unlikely to have that crop up in the next few weeks, but an abruption could still occur. Watch for contractions that won't go away (the tightening stays there forever and doesn't go back down), abdominal pain, thirst, and increased bleeding. These could be signs of an abruption, and should be checked out again.
