  • ok before you start freaking out, how much were you bleeding? did you have an exam or have sex in the past 24 hours? sometimes you lightly bleed if you have an internal exam or have sex while pregnant.

  • Okay, I don't know about placenta previa, but I'll tell you my story, & maybe it will help.

    With my 2nd son I had light bleeding early in my pregnancy, but with my 3rd son, at 9 weeks I started hemorrhaging. I was on my way to an ultrasound when it happened, but went directly to see my ob. After examining me he told me I'd miscarried & he was scheduling a d & c for that afternoon, but since my ultrasound was already scheduled (I was also a high risk pregnancy) he told me to go to the ultrasound then meet him at the hospital. When I got to the ultrasound the baby was actually fine. I was sent back to my doctor, who was shocked, but put me on progesterone & bed rest. 6 weeks later I hemorrhaged again. This time he decided to do another ultrasound before scheduling a d & c. I ended up having a healthy 8lb 12 oz. baby boy.

    So, yes you can bleed lightly or heavily & still carry to term, be careful & see your doctor.

    Best wishes!
