Pregnancy Bleeding


Pregnancy spotting during pregnancy

Pregnancy is a very fragile time in your life when you want everything to go according to plan. Throughout your pregnancy you will do everything you can to ensure that you deliver a healthy baby. Some of the things you may be doing are eating healthy foods, moderately exercising, attending prenatal doctor visits, and being alerted to any signs of pregnancy complications. Bleeding during pregnancy is one thing that may alert you that something is not going correctly.

Although pregnancy bleeding can be very frightening, it is important to remember that it is actually quite common during the early weeks. Bleeding during pregnancy, however, should not be taken lightly.

If you experience any bleeding during pregnancy, you should not hesitate to contact your health care provider immediately

Bleeding in the early stages of pregnancy

Bleeding may occur in the early stages of pregnancy, and does not always signal that something is wrong. Spotting, or a small amount of bleeding, may occur when the egg implants itself in the uterine lining. This is called implantation bleeding. This phenomenon occurs so early in the pregnancy, that chances are you don't even know that you are pregnant yet, and it sometimes can be mistaken for a regular period. Usually this occurs about a week before you would begin your normal period.

The overall blood flow in your body is greatly increased during pregnancy. This often times sends more blood to the cervix, which can cause slight bleeding.

Ectopic pregnancy and bleeding during pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy, or tubal pregnancy, occurs when the egg implants itself outside of the uterus. One of the first signs of this type of pregnancy is irregular bleeding. If you are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, it is imperative that you see your doctor as these pregnancies cannot be carried to term. Your health could be at risk. Bleeding during pregnancy could also be a sign of cervical infections or problems.

Early pregnancy bleeding could be a possible sign of a miscarriage

If bleeding during pregnancy occurs before the twelfth week of pregnancy, and is past the time of implantation bleeding, it could possibly signal miscarriage. It is estimated that miscarriage occurs in fifteen to twenty percent of known pregnancies, and an estimated fifty percent of all pregnancies. Most women do not ever know they were pregnant when most miscarriages occur.

Although bleeding during pregnancy is common during early pregnancy, it could signal a greater problem if it occurs in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. Although rare, at this point a miscarriage could still take place. Bleeding during this time could also signal placental problems. The placenta could be peeling away from the uterine wall, or you could be experiencing the rare problem of the placenta covering the cervix.

Spotting during the second or third trimesters

Bleeding during the second or third trimesters could also be a sign of preterm labor, and should be taken very seriously.

Bleeding after thirty six weeks of pregnancy is normal. Many times a woman will have what is called a "bloody show." This happens a week or two before labor begins, and occurs because the cervix is thinning in preparation for labor. The woman looses her mucous plug, which is often tinged with blood.

Pregnancy bleeding can be a scary sight, but sometimes is not a cause for worry. If you are concerned with any bleeding you may have during early pregnancy, it is your prerogative to call your doctor.

Fortune Baby Gender Predictor Reviews


Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

We had our ultrasound today and it was a girl, same as what fortunebaby gender predictor told us. We are excited but at the same time we are little worried that maybe the ultrasound was wrong. I/ve heard horror stories about that. The technician told us she is 90% certain it/s a girl. So we figure if we add that to your gender predictor test results, it's pretty likely we/re having a girl, which we/re super happy about. :-) Thanks again!!!

Based on the information I provided to fortunebaby in regards to the sex of my unborn child, you were right I am having a Boy

I can't believe it worked. When I first found out I was pregnant, God placed on my heart that it was a girl, so I knew that's what I would have. I was surfing the web and I came across your gender prediction website. I was reading how your formula work and also the testimonies and I said to myself, This is a 100% guarantee or my money back what do I have to loose. So I tried it and at first I was nervous to look at the results. I finally got the nerve to read the results and sure enough it said we're having a little girl. So I thought another sign from God. I finally got an ultrasound and the Doctor said his hunch is it's a girl and then I had another one done almost two weeks later and the technician pointed out the girl part. So after seeing blue two times in a row we're finally seeing pink.

I always thought my first child would be a girl, so when I was carrying my first child the same way my mom carried me, I had no reason to beleive it would be different. You said boy and the ultrasound confirmed it. With my second child I carried so differently and felt totally different so naturally I thought o.k this must be my girl, wrong again you guys said boy and you were right. I'm only doing this one more time so I'm gonna listen to you first next time, It only says I'll have a girl October, November, and December 2009 so I'll just wait until then and see If you're right for a third time as I'm sure you will be!
