Should I worry?

I have been having cramping today, with no vaginal bleeding. On the 24th, I was diagnosed with bleeding behind the placenta after being seen in the ER for vaginal bleeding (which has stopped) and cramping. I am 10 weeks 3 days pregnant. I am wondering if I should be worried and contact the doctor, or if it is just "stretching" that I am feeling. The cramps are bearable, just annoying, and constant, and always there. I am feeling them all over my abdomen and in my lower back. My placenta is high and closest to my spine, and I am not having discomfort there.

So, worry and call OB, or just relax in bed?

  • I had someting similar and I was told to stay off my feet as much as possible for awhile, which I did, and now I am 3 1/2 months along and all is looking good so far with the baby (knock on wood). I am feeling physically a bit better, the bleeding has stopped and the mild cramping I feel now the doc says is everything stretching. You should still call your doc, though, if you are concerned--thats what they are there for, dont feel like you are being a hypochondriac, they deal with all kinds of questions every day and rather you call with concerns than not call and have something wrong. Good Luck, wishing you the best!

  • If there's any doubt, it's always best to call your Dr. He/she will ask appropriate questions and possibly be able to ease your mind with 1 phone call. They'll tell you what you should watch for, or if they think there may be a problem, have you come in to be checked. Wishing you well...
