    ive just gone in my kitchen and trod on a piece of glass (no idea where its come from as cant find anythng broken in the bin)
    anyways ive cut my foot open on it and its taken me 5 mins to stop the bleeding.
    i now have a trail of blood going all round the flat lol as i was trying to find the first aid kit, kitchen looks like ive lost a foot!!!
    so do we bleed more or have thiner blood??
    am hoping hubby dont get rained of work and come home in the next 5 mins as the smallest bit of blood makes him pass out lol

    Owch! Your poor foot :hug: :hug:

    I think the volume of blood in our bodies increases when pg so that could be why, also the bottom of your foot is quite a sensitive area so I think it would bleed more anyway.

    Make sure you have a rest with your feet up

    well there is more blood in our bodys.. and around 19-20 weeks our platelets are at the lowest... (these are the bits in your blood that help you scab) so dont go chopping your hand off or anything..

    if you arnt taking pregnancy vitamins i would suggest taking them every otehr day, to much iron in your body can make you feel ill.. i take my vitamins when im due a blood test..save being anemic on them..and i took them every day for 3 weeks before i gave birth last time..
