Call your Dr. office, you should be able to speak to a nurse. I would go in regardless.

The normal fetal heart rate range is between 120http://www.fetalmonitorstrips.com/learn_more.html and 160 beats per minute.

Quoting I'm me:" The normal fetal heart rate range is between 120http://www.fetalmonitorstrips.com/learn_more.html and 160 beats per minute."

Yeah that's what I keep reading but IDK. I guess it's bc all my kids heart rates were never below 138 ever so it scares me more. But I know you said your son's heart rate was always around 120 so that makes me feel a little better.

Definitely go to the doctors to make sure you're okay.

could you have placenta previa I had a slight previa I found out only after concerns with bleeding an a emergency ultrasound they said nothing at my other ultrasounds so I was surprised.

I could possibly have it bc I had it with my son but never bled. The only reason they found it then was bc I went into PTL several times starting from 27 weeks on and they had to keep stopping it. Idk if i had it with my girls though bc I had to have an emergency csection with my son, so they never were worried about where the placenta was placed with other pregnancies. I'm not full out bleeding...it was just slight spots and today I woke up and it seems to have gone away except for some slight old blood. So idk. Still no cramping or anything.

It could be a previa, previous previas and c-sections really increases your chances of having one. Now I always bleed after sex when I'm pregnant so that wouldn't necessarily worry me but if you don't then I could see you being concerned. But when I bled with my previa at 11 weeks I had so much blood that it took a towel to clean myself up, tp was way not cutting it. Again when I bled from one in ptl at 29 wks it was enough to stream down my leg, pool on the floor and start rolling toward the hospital room door within about 20sec. So in my experience, bleeding from a previa has never been a small amount or spotting.

Yeah Idk cause like I said, with my son I never bled. I have never bled after sex though. The only incident of bleeding in pregnancy was my last but it was a threatened miscarriage and like you said, it was a LOT of blood and not just spotting. It seems to have dried up now so I'm taking it as either placenta previa or just an irritated cervix. But just to be safe, I think I'm gonna wait to have sex with the hubby till after I see my dr next week.
