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.

I had been looking on the web for baby gender predictors, mostly the old wives tale variety of sorts since the Chinese gender predictor test was telling me I should have been expecting a boy. I was pregnant with my second (and last) child, our first was a boy which the Chinese gender predictor was right about, so seeing that they were predicting a second boy for me left me little hope in having the girl my husband and I desperately wanted. Ultrasound after ultrasound didn't show us anything. I am diabetic and was going for ultrasounds at the very least once a month (sometimes more) and every time this child was turned, or had its legs crossed, it just didn't want to be known. To make a long story short, I stumbled across your site and figured what the heck, it wasn't a big cost and with the 100% satisfaction I figured I had very little to loose. Well your method predicted a girl for us! I was at least hopeful that there would be shopping for some pink things in my future though I wasn't certain. My due date came and finally we'd find out what we were going to be having. I was dumbfounded when my doctor announced It's a GIRL!!! I will definitely pass on your site to other pregnant women I know. I am glad I came across it!

My son and his wife are expecting in April. They have a little girl and although they wouldn't admit it, I knew that since this would be their last baby, they would love to have a boy. I gave your fortunebaby gender predictor results(a boy) to them on Christmas Day. Two weeks later their ultra sound proved you right. It's a boy. Thanks, It was fun.

Hello, I must say that I your baby gender prediction test was right on and I would recommend this gender predictor test to any one, not only was it correct for me but my twin sister is 17 weeks pregnant and took the test a couple of days before me and it came up as a boy, she went for a sonogram and sure enough she is also having a boy. I have 2 little girls now and I am 23 weeks pregnant and was hoping for a baby boy, I took your baby gender prediction test and it came up congratulations you are having a baby boy I couldn't believe it. Well sure enough I went for a sonogram on Friday and yup I am certainly having a baby boy. I can't tell you thank you enough my husband and I really thought it was a third baby girl but your baby gender prediction test proved itself 100%!!! My twin sister is also going to be leaving her feedback and herself and I would highly recommend this gender predictor test to all those expecting mothers out there, it is well worth your money! Thank so much Fortune Baby!

I had your one year prediction test done, knowing that coming from a family where the last 13 births had been girls, I was of course desperate for a boy. Your gender predictor was that no matter what month in 2006 I conceived, it would be a boy. I got pregnant in May 2006 and in February 2007 gave birth to a beautiful boy! I am now going to find out what you predict for my next child. Many Thanks.
