My oldest sister is pregnant and she just turned 36 her baby is due in November This will be her 3rd child. She just called me and said that she had to call her OB because she went to the bathroom and wiped and there was a small blood clot about the size of her pinkie finger. She said her and her boyfriend has sex yesterday and she was fine, then she started spotting pink and orange and cramping last night. The doctor told her it was fine and if it continued she would need to be checked out. Is this normal?? She works alottttt I mean 50 hours a week and she is a manager at Taco Bell. She has been closing the place for the past 3 nights which she goes in at 7pm and leaves at 5 am. I think she is over doing it. Does she need to get checked out? I am worried she will really start bleeding if she works tonight.
She should definitely be checked out. Better safe than sorry. Anytime you have any kind of bleeding in pregnancy your doctor should want to follow up and be sure everything is ok. I'm sure the stress, working a lot, and maybe even the sex is irritating something. An u/s should probably be done to make sure baby is okay and see if they can figure out where the spotting and clot came from.
I told her she needed to get checked out regardless that her doc said it would be fine he is a *****. She just called me and said that she is not hurting or anything and the baby is moving but she is still spotting pink.
