So far out of 24 weeks i havent had any bleeding or spotting whatsoever. Not even when my progesterone was low early on and i had to supplement. Tuesday night after work, i saw some bright pink spotting when I wiped. No cramping, but baby not moving like normal, still a kick here and there, but not the same. I called the hospital, and decided to rest and watch. If it got worse, i would go in to be checked.
Wednesday i wake up and had no bleeding. Went in to work as normal, then started bleeding again. This time a darker reddish brown. Had about 3-4 quarter sized dots on the pad during the day. Feeling a lot of back and vaginal pressure so I called for an apointment. The doctor Ordered bedrest after i got off of work, and apt first thing in the morning. Baby moving, but not as active as she normally is. I checked her heartrate at work and it was good (135-147).
Came home and ate, showered, then rested. Dh told his mom, and I told my parents. Lets just say they were both worried, but praying and hoping for the best. Lets just say it was a very scary time for me and dh.
Apt today went well. Dh's boss let him off of work to come to the apt (no vacation used) a big deal for us. I was checked, cervix completly closed and no sign at all of any bleeding. She said if i start bleeding again to come in right away. Even if it is at 2am. No sign of a uti, no sign of any infection. Baby moving a lot more and heartbeat strong at 153-145. Basically the doctor said everything looked like it resolved on its own.
Still taking it easy today and tom, just to be extra safe. Dh seems to be a lot more relaxed too. He didnt say much, but i know he was scared too. The next time i work is tuesday, so i have a good bit of time to rest. Oh, and the #1question everyone asks no me and dh did not do anything for at least 3 days b4 the spotting started, and not since, so spotting not related to that.
I have my regular apt next week for my diabetes test, and a us scheduled just to be extra safe. Gery thankful that everything is looking normal considering how worried we have been.
So glad to hear that things look okay! I had this happen to me from 18 weeks to 20 weeks (spotted three times during those two weeks). I've had two ultrasounds (including one today) and everything looks great and the bleeding has stopped. Looks like the bleeding was coming from my cervix, and my placenta is up high, and I've had no cramping or pressure, so hopefully all that is over with for me. I hope it's the same for you! Definitely take it easy and take some resolve that the blood wasn't bright red and gushing. And please keep us updated!

Thanks guys. At my appointment i was so happy that i wasn't bleeding anymore because that meant everything looked good. But at the same time i wish i was bleeding a little when she checked me just so I would know where it was coming from or some explanation for it. It is scary. But taking comfort in my apt today. I have new empathy for anyone expieriencing the same thing. I'm just so thankful that baby is doing well.
