Small placenta bleed?

Hi girls, I'm new to this board. I'm 8wks, 1 day. I had a u/s on Monday after some spotting. My Dr said the baby looks great and had a healthy hb. Then she said that I have a small placenta bleed and that I should take it easy and not lift anything. It should heal itself. Still, I can't help but be concerned. Anyone else have this?

Not to mention, tough not to lift anything when I'm home with my 20 month old son all day.

    Tracy, thanks. Good to know you were lifting a little one. I'm still lifting him, just trying to limit it whenever possible.

  • I had a not so small placenta bleed at about 7 weeks with my second.  I thought I miscarried-it was a LOT of bright red blood.  But it did heal itself, enough at least.  I spotted off and on the entire pregnancy.  They did a lot of
