Bleeding and blood clots. (12 weeks pregnant) +Sunshine+ 2 kids; Texas 4149 posts
18th Nov '12

Okay, i've posted this earlier, but wanted ot ask once again to see if more ladies would join in to pretty much answer Have you have this before??



Off and on during this pregnany, I get small amount of really dark brown blood. Only seen it when I wiped. Just small amount.



Now these 2 days, it's been a little heavier. Still no need for pad, but takes me a few wipes now. AND there are a couple tiny, stringy blood clots. They are small, dark and look stringy.



I called another OB at the hospital (since mine is out of town). Just said dark is okay. Just go to my regular appt next week.



I've had no cramping. Just dark bleeding.

If you have blood clots I would go to the ER. I did have bleeding and blood clots and it turned out to be placenta previa

I've never had this, and quit honestly I think if be worried if it happened to me, only because I'm nervous about pregnancy period! But I don't think you should worry too much since brown blood means old blood. Worry if you see pink/bright red blood

Perhaps just a bit of mucus plug and blood from an irritated cervix? Did you have sex recently? I don't want to to worry you of course but when anyone says clots I immediately worry about a miscarriage. Are you in any pain?



I would try not to worry though as its only brown blood and your doctor does not seem alarmed.
I'm sure you already are but drink lots of water, avoid sex and take it easy. Ill keep you in my thoughts. <3

See, I called up there Sat, and he said if I went up there that he would just tell me what he told me on the phone. AND because my regular OB is not there.



He said not to worry, but idk. I still am.

i had the same thing at 12 weeks, except i passed some really big clots, and it turned out to be placenta previa for me as well.

They should at least do an ultrasound I worry when people say blood clots during pregnancy

That's the only thing keeping me "alright" about it. Is that it's only really dark. Idk what to do though. I had some dark brown bleeding with my son, but not this far along and not this much.

Ehh, idk. And nooo pain. Some lower back pain, but i've had it since a month or so before I found out I was pregnant. What sucks is that I would love to just go to the ER anyways, but I wouldn't have anyone to watch my kids.



I just want an ultrasound right now to reassure me that my bean is alright. Or at least hear a heartbeat.

These are not huge. They are like ... the size of BB's or ever smaller. Stringy looking too.
