i`m 18 weeks pregnant and since 8 weeks i`ve had vaginal bleeding. i`ve been into ed many times at the start, now i have gotten used to it as much as u can. i`ve had about 5 instances of heavy bleeding, which ussually lasts between 4-10 hrs. and i have constant light spotting. i have ultrasounds nearly every 2 weeks and the baby is very healthy and is gaining weight. no one seems to be able to explain why this bleeding started and if it will stop. latley i am getting very nervous about going into preterm labour. some days i will have a bleed and cramping with very mild pain, and sometimes loose bowel movements aswell. as these are all signs of preterm labour, but appear to be almost normal for me i`m not sure what else to look for. at 18 weeks would i feel very strong contraction? and would they administer labour inhibiting drugs this early if i was to go into labour? most of the time with bedrest the symptoms settle themselves. please any advice on this situation or past experiences would be greatly appreciated!!
no one seems to like to tell me anything.
