*UPDATE* Just got back from the doctors. Had a good talk with him, explained it all and the he had a good prod and got out the doppler and had a listen. Baby's heart was beating away and while he was doing that he said he could also feel baby kicking away in there So that was a relief. That might explain all the fluttering feelings I've been having the past couple of days. He said if I had any more spotting to come back to them asap and they would refer me for an emergency scan and see if it was the placenta lying low. But if I don't have any more then not to worry too much and to carry on as I have been but to try to take it a little easier where possible. So I am under doctors orders to rest for a few days, do as little as possible and if all is well then I should be ok. My next scan will confirm where the placenta is anyway and chances are it'll be where its meant to be he said All reassured and feeling fine And baby is obviously having a party in there atm ***** I'm a little worried but trying to stay calm. I had a short spell of spotting when I was in my first tri, but luckily all was well and we made it to second tri. However, this morning I had some spotting again, red blood. This was after being up and out of bed for over an hour and no pains or anything. I did however go to the loo having been constipated for the last couple of days. Its nothing major, the amount I am spotting, but now I am starting to worry at every twinge I feel and wondering if its a cramp like pain or a possible one, or the start of one... you get the picture Does anyone else have spotting on and off, or indeed continuously even? I really would love a bit of reassurance here that its not something to worry about too much. If I get any real cramps I'll be calling my GP but I don't want to do anything atm as there is no real need.
