I am 11 weeks 1 day today and will hopefully be joining you all soon on this board (fingers are crossed). I was wondering if any of you had bleeds during your first trimester due to a sensitive cervix?
I have had about 5 isolated bleeds during this first trimester. Of course, each time I freak out and expexct the worst. After two particularly scary ones I had ultrasounds done to make sure everything was okay and both times the baby was doing great (growth was normal and heartbeat was strong).
Having had a miscarriage before I am getting a little tired of these scares. I have to use progesterone cream vaginally and my doctor thinks that I am somehow irritating my cervix sometimes when I insert the cream, causing a bleed due to irritation or a popped blood vessel.
I was wondering if anyone had anything similar occur? Usually the bleeds last for about 1-2 minutes then are gone. They are not accompanied by cramps at all and are completely random. The blood is red but stops and then I have no follow-up spotting at all. This seems to happen about once every two weeks or so, sometimes only a week in between.
Needless to say I am anxious to get to a "safer" zone and am so anxious for the second trimester. I have my first trimester screen next week on Wednesday and am hoping to feel encouraged by that.
Any similar stories out there of oversensitive cervix?
