  • She may want to go to the ER about that. There's a chance she COULD be having a miscarriage but for safety sake, she needs to go to the ER.

  • I would definitely go to the doctor. Better to be on the safe side.

  • did she have sex recently? Your cervix is tender during pregnancy and you can bleed a little if he goes too deep. Has she been checked recently by her doctor? I always bled a little after I got checked.

    If not, then she should give her doctor a call.

  • I had the same problem when I was pregnant the first time. My doctor told me it was nothing to worry about so I didnt, when them one day it became more heavier and I had a miscarriage. She need to go to the ER right now

  • Our daughter bled through her entire pregnancy; and every time she did she made sure she went to the doctor.
    She needs to see her doctor or the hospital.
    Granddaughter was just fine by the way....some women just bleed.

  • I had some light spotting at 30 1/2 weeks and 32 1/2 weeks and couldn't figure why and they ended up giving me steriod shots the second time in the hospital and I stayed for 3 days. I also had bleeding from 9-18weeks that was found to be a hemmorhage and lasted that long cause my placenta was low and in the way and then moved so the blood could get out. So she could hav e something like that, not to scare u and sometimes I bleed alot like one time it was 3 pads in one hour
    I filled
