  • Who cares if you look crazy or not as long as your baby is safe. You can call the hospital and speak with a nurse or midwife and they can give you some advice on what to do also, I would go to the hospital to be on the safe side.

  • I'd call your OB and see what he/she wants you to do. I know if it were me I wouldn't make it very long without wanting to go to the ER to get checked out.

  • I had it at 5-8wks, it was a subchronic hemorrhage. It's important to call your physician regardless, it doesn't matter if you think it will make you look crazy, the doctors are there to help you.

  • Do not worry about what others think. You want a safe, healthy and happy baby. I would call the Dr. and see what they think, or I would a nurse (they usually have some on call for things) and ask. Better safe than sorry......after all this is a person you are carrying and if someone carrying you had had this problem, you would want them to do what was best for you. Often times it's nothing major, but you need to go.

  • I bled a little bit for a few hours when I was about 12 weeks along as well, it really freaked me out, I called my mom... and she told me that it was really normal, she spotted throughout her whole pregnancy with me. I didnt go to a doc, I stopped bleeding, and now at 25 weeks prego everything is totally ok. I really think going to the doc depends on you. If you stop bleeding within 24 hrs and its light with no pain or cramping, then I think you are okay. But if anything changes, go to the doc. Or, if it makes you feel better, go. Better to be safe than sorry!!

  • I would go to the ER to be sure. I would not be able to function until I knew things were okay.
