slight bleeding
mkdd02 posted:
hi my name is kim. on oct. 16 i took a pregnacy test at home and it was positive and my doc scheduled an appt for nov.1.i also took another at home test three days before my doc appointment with the same results. when i went to the doc she confirmed what i already knew im going to be a mommy again. during the implantation period i had slight cramping but no bleeding. i had intercourse a two days prior to my doc 's appointment and started cramping slightly and had passed a brown colored clot. the same day after my doc appointment i had intercourse again with the same result. having had a miscarriage in feb i'm kind of scared to have intertcourse again while pregnat at least until my first trimester is over. my question is is this old blood from not bleeding during the implanting period or is this something to worry about?

I'm experiencing the same thingright now. Went to the dr. two weeks early because I was worried. My Dr. told me the worst would be that my body is trying to miscarry or it could be as simple as my body creating the mucus plug andor getting rid of old blood. He did bloodwork to validate that I was still pregnant and I see him again Monday for an ultrasound if everything comes back good. I hope the best for you, good luck.
