I have had bleeding for the last 3 weeks

Hi Alex,
I am 14 weeks pregnant and I have had bleeding for the last 3 weeks, the doctor has told me that I have a Subchroinic bleed. I have had some slight cramping and I am still having all the pregnancy symptoms. I just wanted to know, what I should be doing and not doing and what are my chances of having the pregnancy stay healthy?
Regards
Letitia

Answer: Hi Letitia, There is a very good chance that the pregnancy will continue. This is a bleed under the placenta and it is very common. The blood that you are losing is your blood and not the baby’s. Hopefully it will settle soon and you can enjoy your pregnancy. Best wishes, Alex
