spotting at 18+ 5 weeks - a bit worried

Just been to the loo and noticed some blood (red) when I wiped (sorry if TMI). Not much at all, but it was red. I never had any spotting when pg with ds, or so far with this pregnancy.

I did have sex this morning, and quite a few times recently (LOL, dh is on holiday and I'm at the horny stage of pregnancy), and dh was fiddling about with my bottom blush. I've no idea which hole the blood might have come from blush.

Is this normal? Should I be worried? I'm hoping it is a sex thing, not a baby-in-trouble thing, but don't know.

Got to go out now, so can't check back until late afternoon.

all bleeding in pregnancy should be checked out, especially red blood.

however, in my humble non medical opinion, especially bearing in mind your , ahem, activites, you might well have a cervical erosion ( not sinister ) which is bleeding a little after all the friction....

it is quite common, and nothing to worry about , per se, but you could get checked out, just to be sure.

No more bleeding since, thank goodness, and I've just felt it moving, so I'm trying not to worry. If there is anymore bleeding I can see my mw on Friday.

if you are worried then call the MW sooner than friday.... sure all will be well xx

If your blood group is rhesus neg make sure you contact your mw sooner than friday as you may need an injection of anti d to ensure that you don't have problems later on. Obv no further bleeding and feeling baby move is a positive sign though.

I was told at my booking appt to expect to see some blood (due to cervical erosion) if I had sex.

Hope you are ok.

I'm rhesus positive, so dont need to worry about that. The baby is wriggling away right now, so I feel quite reassured.

Should I just not have sex for a while? Can't bear the thought of talking about such things with mw (she's not the most approachable lady).

Have all the sex you want, it's perfectly safe (I had a different kind of midwife at the booking appointment!! grin).

I'm pretty sure mine prefers women to men, in that department. She hates children too, as far as I can tell. The look of horror when I turned up last time with a toddling ds was priceless - sheer panic!
