i dunno what the hell is going on but a few weeks ago i went to the ER cuz i was bleeding really bad and turns out i had a "threatened misscarriage" that had something to do with the placenta not growing together properly or tearing. but i was sapposed to be on bedrest and i have been taking it as easy as i can with my 2 year old but its been almost 3 weeks and i havent been able to get into my doc untill the 20th (this happen the 2nd) but last night i went to a bbq with my fiance and i started bleeding again! but this time it is alot darker, almost brown sorry tmi and its been goin on since last night at 11 ish and its almost 4 pm right now. i DO NOT want to go back to the ER because it was horrible last time and my doc appt is in 2 days do u think its ok to wait? also i was told not to wear tampons but i cant stand pads and havent worn them since i was 11! so i have one in, but i dont see what they could do really? HELP!

  • hon go to the ER-sounds like your misscarring, im sorry and I hope your not, but if you are bleading for thta long heavy enough to use a tampon or pad and that color you NEED to get checked, if you are misscarryin you will need a D/C
    Good luck and I will pray for u

  • Well, if it's dark brown I don't think it's a bad thing. If you have cramping then that might be something you should look into. Good luck and God bless. :)

  • Dark blood is old blood. It could have been left over from the last bleeding you had. I had late in my last pregnancy squatted down and had red blood come out and went to L and D they found nothing wrong. A week later I had darker blood went back and they said it was probably old left over blood that never came out from the time before and sent me home.
