Pregnant after IF

panicking :(

I just had my 9 week ultrasound with a new OB/GYN-it was my first appt. with the regular OB since I was released from the RE-baby looks great-she/he was swimming around like crazy-had a wonderful heartbeat.  I could see definite arms and legs.  Since I was a new patient, she gave me a full exam. 

Trouble is, when she was examining me and brushed my cervix ever so lightly, I started bleeding heavily.  She felt terrible for making me bleed, and quickly did another ultrasound to check the baby and all still looked A-OK.  She assured me the baby is fine-the bleeding was strictly from the sensitive cervix.  But I can't help but freak out. 

I just got in to work, went to the bathroom and the toilet had blood in it again.  I am going to watch it throughout the day, but I am so nervous.  My next ultrasound isn't for another 3 weeks.  I really hope the bleeding stops soon to ease my mind. Huh?

  • Your cervix is extra vascular during pregnancy, so bleeding can happen easily. I bled having sex at 6 weeks and it was because of my cervix. The bleeding lasted for a day, then the following day I spotted brown, and then it completely stopped. My OB told me it was normal. 

    If you are concerned give a call in to your doctor, but I am sure all is fine!  

    A lot of years and a million tears finally led me to you.
    After 7 years trying to concieve, 3 failed IUIs and 2 failed IVFs, my third IVF was a success!

  • i thought you were going to Dr Back. Who did your exam?

    I would call and ask to be seen again in a few days, if you're still bleeding. For peace of mind.

  • Genna I ended up switching yet again to a new office, one that my RE recommended and that they work closely with (Healthy Woman USA in Freehold)  Have you heard of them?  I hope you're not mad!  Tongue Tied I really liked it there, and I know the bleeding only happened because of sensitivity to the cervix. But it still freaked me out.  It actually has stopped and only a little bit is there when I wipe--I guess because I haven't seen blood in so long and I panicked.  I just called-she (Dr. Pacana) told me to abstain for 72 hours just in case, and to call back if it hasn't stopped by this evening.  But I think I'm in the clear!  I guess I panicked too soon, since it's the first time seeing blood in a while.   I think I'll be okay!  Yikes....
