  • No it's not normal. Call your doctor and let them know what is going on. This kind of thing they WANT you to call in about.

  • Did they say anything about previa? You need to call your doctor right now, or just go in to the office, please rest as much as possible.

  • I'm also thinking previa... I bled because of the previa and SCH. They won't do anything other than bedrest if it is previa... you HAVE to take it easy because of the severity. They told me if it got to a pad an hour then to go back to ER.

  • Well I assume that your doctor knows best, I guess I don't need to tell you not to have sex correct? You need to be on complete bedrest until you see the doctor!

  • Get back to the ER again.

  • Is there any way you can get in before the weekend? Hang in there, Mama, I know bleeding during pregnancy and fearing miscarriage is one of the worst feelings there is on the planet. For the sake of your peace of mind, try to get back to the doc today or tomorrow.
