Another bleed, is there anything I can do?

Back from the second trip to hospital in a fortnight. I'm nearly 25 weeks pregnant and I've had more bleeding, albeit lighter than last time. I have to go into hospital and get checked, also get anti -D injection because of rhesus negative blood type. I've not had sex, knocked my stomach or done anything strenuous. No issues last time and expecting it to be ok again, but is there anything I can do to reduce the liklihood of more bleeds? This is my second pregnancy and I'm struggling with hypermeisis and Spd, so the additional stress and hassle is definitely not needed.

I've bled on and off from around 15 weeks. Last one was at almost 24 weeks. I was terrified as it gushed out of me. They did scans and discovered I had a placental haemorrhage. Since then I've basically got as much rest as I can and not had anymore since. I was given steroids to help his lungs mature and warned that he will probably be prem. I'm now 34 + 2 and will be going in to be induced in 18 days.

I think the rest was what really helped me. We also haven't had sex. Plenty of fluids helped too because if you are dehydrated it causes you to have contractions.

Hope all goes well for you.

Thanks battleshiphips. Staying hydrated is the tricky one. I'm really pleased that things have settled down for you.

I still get apprehensive when I wipe and check for blood! My last bleed was really heavy and I was in hospital for around 5 days. Have you tried ice pops. My df lived on them when she had hyperemisis. Might help with the fluids.

5 days, wow that sounds tough. I've spent a few days with icepops when nothing else stays down. All a bit hit and miss.

I've been in today with a bleed (24weeks). They found a cyst on my cervix so want me to have a colposcopy to investigate. I'm worried as I'm still bleeding. Sending love to all X

shalala Oh poor you. I suppose it's good that they saw what was causing it and can try to sort it out. Do you know when they will do the colposcopy?

No they haven't said - and I'm terrified!

I can understand you feeling that way, it must be scary. Are you able to get any more information?

I've been in hospital the last couple of nights with bleeding - apparently isn't anything to do with the cyst but is linked to my placenta

Oh poor you. You're in the best place for looking after you and the baby. Do you have dp for company?

shalalala Fri 05-Feb-16 16:02:50

Yeah he's been up here everyday with me. How are you getting on?

squeezed Fri 05-Feb-16 18:04:59

That's good having someone there. It can get lonely in hospital. I've not had any more bleeding yet, but trying to take it easy. Quite difficult with a full on dd!

Hope you get out soon shalala I was in last friday night after bleed and worried I'd be in again after passing a clot this thur but they were happy for me to monitor at home and update them. Very relieved as getting sleep in hospital was nearly impossible (I'm 36wks so sleeplessness will soon be routine) hope you are managing to sleep.
