pregnant and spotting question...?

Recently I have been spotting after having bowel movements. I have been constipated and started drinking metamucil and taking a stool softner. I was scared to death the first time it happened...I called the dr. and she ordered a Quantitative HCG level which she said looked fine she has another ordered on monday just to make sure. Has anyone else experienced this and was everything ok. I just get real nervous when i see stops after a few wipes and i seem ok???

  • are you positive the blood is from your vagina and not your anus? It might be a ruptured internal hemorrhoid. which there's nothing you can do about but wait it out until it heals.

  • I agree with Anon, sometimes its not form your vag. Esp. if it's after a bowel movement and it stops after a few wipes.....

  • I was thinking the same thing. Be sure you are getting LOTS of fiber and water!!
