  • If you are worried then go to the ER. They dont mess around and you will know for sure. Why suffer mentally and physically?? I bled at 5 weaks with light cramps and all was good. GL!!

  • If they keep sending you home the odds are they will keep doing just that. I know this will be hard, but try not to stress. Stress will only make it worse. And I dont mean this in a bad/rude way so please dont take this wrong, but if something is going to happen to your baby then it will happen. So just try to relax and pray that the doctors are right! I will pray for you!

  • Steph319...she just said she went to the ER 5 times.

    I would find another OB and get a second opinion. I hate emergency rooms. It always seems like they are just trying to shut you up and get you out of there.

  • Questions:

    How far along are you?
    How long has this been going on?
    Does your doctor say the same thing as the ER?
    Is this your first baby?
    Is it like menstrual cramps?
    What is the bleeding like (color, amount)?
    Is it anytime or just after intercourse or a vaginal exam?

  • Have you tried a different ER or a different OB? Sometimes they just get to busy to really notice and I am sorry but I would want someone to sit me down and explain to me exactly why I am having these pains and blood. Then I want them to tell me, if I am in there and again they find nothing wrong, what I should be looking for.

    Sorry, but if you think something's wrong, chances are there is. Instincts know more than your doctor. You have a right to feel at ease and an answer you are comfortable with. I have never heard anyone having pains like that during a pregnancy with bleeding that can't walk and its considered to be normal.
