Thanks for the replies! When the doctor said wait and see, I wanted to scream. I was glad they found an explanation, I just would feel better if there was something the doctor could have suggested to "fix" it. The doctor offered to bring me in for another u/s in a couple weeks, but I'm not worried about the baby being healthy - I'm worried about my body causing a m/c.
Adgal - very glad to hear that the bleeding stopped. Your situation sounds just like mine. I will stay calm and hopefully in a few weeks the spotting will stop.
BabyBlue07 - I will ask about the cervix. The u/s tech took lots of pictures of my cervix but the doctor did not mention anything about the cervix. My regular OB told me no exercise, no walking, etc. so I have been on restricted activity for about a week. I will probably continue with that just to be on the safe side.
I was bleeding around week 9 and went to see my doctor.. she checked and said my cervix was not closed.... put me bed rest for 3 weeks and if still bleeding, then she will have surgery to sew the cervix... thank god when i have check up on week 12.. my cervic complete closed... bed rest could help the bleeding..
most doctor do not check cervix to see if it's open or closed... it's okay to ask them that... miscarriage could cause by imcompotent cervix...
good luck to you.
This sounds similar to what I had except it was first trimester for me. I bled (bright red) on and off for several weeks, with brown spotting in between. It would go away for a few days then start up again. They found what they called a hematoma on my ultraound (I am pretty sure it's the same as a blood clot?). Anyway, so far so good, and the bleeding completely stopped a few weeks ago. No mention of it on my last ultrasound. My pregnancy seems to be progressing just fine.
I have met many women on here with the same thing and as far as I know all their babies were born healthy! Wait and see does seem to be the normal way they handle it. It eventually bleeds itself out. Try not to worry, it's not uncommon at all. Good luck.
