    Hey there - i am only just PG just got my BT results yesterday and as soon as i did i started spotting - freaked out a bit - it is brown and appears to have gone - spoke to the specialist nurse and she said that i should just rest and if it becomes red then get to the Dr fast - so yeah - pretty scary for the first real day of pregnancy. Both my mother and sister had regular spotting through pg - could it be genetic?

    I am now 18 weeks preggers and continuing to bleed! Have only had 8 days free of it since I found out I was pregnant back in January!

    So far the baby seems to be doing fine. My Ob still thinks it's all a bit of a mystery. My placenta is not low and my cervix is long and thick - all apparently good signs.

    It seems that as my uterus grows it bursts blood vessels. This result in a flood of fresh bleeding (like completely soaking between 4 and 6 maternity pads every hour for a few hours) which gradually tapers off to being like a heavy period and then to old blood spotting over the next few days and then another blood vessel must burst - and the cycle begins again! Lots of ultrasounds later - we're really none the wiser as to why this keeps happening. Hope none of you have to go through this sort of bleeding 'cause it's pretty unpleasant. Think I'm getting nappy rash from all this pad wearing! LOL.

    I had light bleeding for the whole of month 2. It was the most horrible feeling I've ever had, convinced that something was wrong. We were sent for an ultrasound at week 7 to see that baby was healthy with no visible problems. You can imagine how wonderful we felt coming out of that appointment!

    The bleeding stopped at the start of month 3 and hasn't reared its ugly head since. I have a feeling that this does run in the family, as my mother reported the same symptoms when she was carrying me.

    I wish I'd read this thread back then, I might have felt there was a little more hope. My doctor at the time wasn't too positive about it.
