Bleeding During Third Trimester

Billie - February 25

When I was 6 weeks, I had bleeding after s_x. I went to the hospital and the bleeding stopped even before I left the hospital. They said that nothing was wrong. Well I had some more bleeding a week ago. (25 weeks) I went to the hospital and the baby is fine but I was contracting. I had 5 contractions while I was on the monitor. They sent me home and told me not to have s_x. My question is, do any of you think that I could go into preterm labor. I'm a little nervous.

Having serious contractions other than the regular Braxton Hicks can be scary. Given that it has happened before and your baby has been fine, I think you are OK but you should be careful. No s_x and rest as much as you can. Has the doctor put you on bed rest, maybe that's what you need.

Did they check for placenta previa?

Yeah, they did an u/s and my placenta was high in my uterus. They also did a cervical check and it was closed but I spotted for days after that. They couldn't tell me where the bleeding was coming from. Also the contractions that I was having were Braxton Hicks, but all the books say that if you have more than 4 in an hour then it's time to call the doctor. When I had 5 I figured that something must be wrong. This is my first pregnancy and I get nervous about everything. I know that some bleeding after s_x is normal but when it happened to me, I panicked. Since then, I only get Braxton Hicks like once or twice a day. I am able to have s_x again but I don't in fear of another episode of bleeding. I'm now 28w and 5d and everything is going great.
