I am a father-to-be so apologies if I am not supposed to use this forum, but I would be grateful for any advice. My girlfriend is nearly 21 weeks pregnant. She started bleeding/spotting (mostly light but heavy on at least one occasion) around 18-19 weeks. Initially she dismissed it and refused to see the doctor but after it happened for the fourth time she agreed to see him and was told it could be placenta previa. However, we had the 20-week scan recently and everything appeared fine - the placenta was described as 'fundal' which I understand means that it is in the right place. But my girlfriend continues to experience spotting (it has happened again twice since the scan). Yet she is now convinced that it is nothing to worry about. All the websites say that you should contact your doctor if you experience any bleeding - do you think I should press her to do so? I don't want to worry her unduly but I am concerned about the health of both her and the baby.
