    Default Light bleed..what to do?

    Hi,
    I am 15 weeks pregnant and I just went to the toilet and have a light pinkish bleed. Theres not a great deal, but enough to worry me, since DH has just left for the weekend to go bush and am alone with dd.

    Any suggestions? I dont have any cramping bar the pulling I have been having over the past few weeks.

    TIA

    Melissa

    I agree, it is probably nothing but worth getting checked.

    Take care

    No harm in giving the hospital a quick call.

    Hi,
    I went to the gp to organise a scan, unfortunately I couldnt get one, so I had to go to ED. They checked me out and my urine is fine, they took my bloods and want me to go back at 9am tomorrow for a scan.
    The blood has turned brown, which to me is a good sign. But I have lower back pain. Am a bit nervous, especially with dh away.
    And I'll have to find a sitter for dd coz she wasnt all that bit interested in staying still for 4 hours thismorning, although she did great.

    Will keep you posted,

    Thanks
    Melissa

    Good luck hun - brown discharge generally means old blood and some people get a bit of discharge and back pain around the time AF would be due. Good luck with your scan tomorrow and rest up loads today.

    I had bleeding at 16weeks with my 2nd dd and I was so scared as I didn't know at the time that you could bleed in pregnancy and not lose your baby. But now I know its quite common. Luckily everything was fine and I was reassured when the Ob showed me her breathing and moving on the ultrasound. Hope all is well with you and little darl!

    Firstly I just wanted to thank everyone for your advice and well wishes.

    I had my scan this morning and bubs is looking fine, yay. Heart beat was at 122bpm and it was moving around. I still have niggly pain and lower back pain, but the bleeding has stopped

    Thanks again

    Melissa
