Scared and 18 weeks pregnat.

This morning when I blew my nose I had sharp pain in my lower left abdomen. Now 4 hours later I am having spotting. Should I go to the ER, or should I see if I can get into my doctors tommarow?????? My next appointment is November 5th. I am really scared and worried.

  • Call your doctor. They should have an afterhour phone line where the on-call doc will call you back. It's always better to be safe than sorry. They may tell you to go ahead and go to the ER to get checked out. Bleeding or spotting at 18 weeks, I don't think is normal though. Could be nothing, but still, atleast call the on-call doc. Good luck!

  • You should never take any kind of strange pain lightly. Call your doctor and explain that you're worried and would like an earlier visit. You doctor would rather you pester him than keep it to yourself and end up needing hospitilization or losing the baby.
