Question to Mommies who bled/spotted brown through out your pregnancy

I had a bleed last week. Went to the ER..my cervix was closed and the baby was fine on ultrasound. The ER said to have a check up with my OB within 48 hours.. OB said she didn't need to see me until my next appointment on June 23rd. I have spotted brown on and off all week but I have a home doppler and the baby has a strong heartbeat and I can feel movement...

Do you think I will be coded "High Risk"? Were you coded High Risk? I am gonna be a mess until I get to the doctor again. I would change doctors but we have Military Insurance, Tricare Prime, so I have to see the doctors on base..

  • Some women spot during pregnancy. But I could also be a sign of UTI (urinary tract infection).

  • the bleeding came from my vagina... When I asked where the blood came from I kept getting the answer "we don't have your ultrasound reports". They never said "take a few days and rest"...all they said was we will see you in June and oh you might get some "brown" spotting..
