Spotting is worse again, ugh!

The baby is just fine thank you Lord for dopplers the hb is 160-170 and I can hear the baby moving and kicking at the Doppler. But today I had some bright red bleeding. It wasn't a lot but it was enough to scare me . I have been on my feet a ton dh has been sick w/ a fever and do I've been doing it all for the 6 kids plus taking care of him. Stil I should be able to be on my feet and not bleed. I am going to call the midwife in the morning and ask for an u/s. She said to call if the bleeding worsens but she didn't say I could for sure have a scan. I'm really wondering if I don't have a placenta previa and ui would really like anther u/s to confirm or dent that.

That's always scary, even if you know the baby is fine. Thank heaven you have a doppler! Let us know what the m/w says.

take it easy. With DD2 I had heavy bleeding throught the first trimester if I was on my feet for more than 20 minutes at a time or did anything strenuous. With DD1 I'd had light bleeding due to a SCH but with DD2 they never found a reason. By 16 weeks it stopped.

I will update Deb. I go in at 10:10

Danifo thanks for the support! It's good to know that it stopped by 16 wks for you. I have had some spotting in my other pgs but never for this long, I have it off and on for 3 wks but now it's red. Bah I hate it! The two other u/s I have had showed nothing out if the ordinary but they were at 6 and 9 wks and they couldn't really see the placenta.

Well no scan she said that I need to be 15 wks to see the placenta clearly to tell if its a previa. She did an exam to make sure I didn't have an infection that was bothering my cervix and it looked just fine. Closed and healthy looking. She saw some bleeding but not much. She really doesn't have any explanation except for maybe it's previa but it could be unexplainable. The more I'm on my feet the more ill probably bleed but I am not putting baby at danger or anything. No sex until spotting has been gone for a week.
