Hi everybody...well see my story is around jan. 5 2007 i started bleeding (kind of like a period...but didnt soak ANY pads so it wasnt severe) and so i went to the E.R. and they told me that i had a threatened miscarriage but the baby was doing great and they couldnt find anything that could have made me bleed (oh and by the way i was 10 weeks when that happened and now im 13 weeks) i was put on bed rest for about a week and a half...and i mean after the first day i quit bleeding which was great and all but i still had a some days it would be brown and some days would be reallie light and then go away and then the next day it would start up again with a little bit of brownish discharge (i didnt think much of it since i figured it was just the old blood)....but honestly at 13 weeks im still having a little bit of that brownish discharge...and i mean they have heard the heartbeat and everything is great...and i still have pressure and i believe i have felt the baby move (this is my second pregnancy)...but anyways my question is...could there be something wrong or could it just be the fact that it could be old blood or something...(i mean when i have the discharge it isnt a lot but its there)...anyways what do you guys think?! im so freaked out...i keep trying to think of excuses why im still having discharge...3 weeks later ugh! please someone help! i just need advice! thanks! sorry so long...and sorry if its rambled

I actually spoke to my baby dr and she told me that as long as its old blood not to worry to much because it can be hiding in crevices in your cerix and take awhile for all the clear disharge to clean it all up. if you get bad cramps and back aches I would get concerned and see my dr otherwise take care

Hi, I am 13 weeks too, at 11 weeks I had a bleed. It turned out in my case to be a subchorionic hematoma and was on bed rest for a week. I stopped bleeding after 3 hours from the inital time. But being in bed for a week, i hardly had any old blood, but once I started working again and moving around, it started to come out more and more. I know it is frustrating, trust me. But in time it will go away. It is old blood and the reason it takes so long to come out is your cervix is closed. That is a good thing because if it were open you would be done bleeding in a few hours. But since it is closed up tight it takes a long time for the old blood to seap out. Anyway, good luck. And congrats.

Hi I am 11 weeks and had my 1st gush of blood on New Years I was freaking out went to the hospital they had no clue they found the heartbeat we did IVF and met with our RE I also like Jen have a subchoronic hematoma I have been on bed rest since Jan 1st. I constantly have old blood coming out i fill about 5 panty liners a day. There is also cramping a__sociated with it. They say about 95% of these do go away over time they will bleed out but it does take a while. Your cervix is closed and the blood builds up then it comes out. If this is your case it does sound like what Jen and I have been diagnosed with good luck
