11th week blood clod bleeding - how much is too much?
Hello to the members of this forum. This is my first help question here.
My wife is 11weeks pregnant with twins from IVF (11 weeks 5 days and 11weeks 3 days to be precise) . She had one miscarriage last year from IUI at around 10 weeks.
Yesterday night, she woke up me to a nightmare with blood in the washroom. The tissue that came out was in pool of blood and we couldn't tell what it was - we were convinced that it was one of the twins. It was a devastating experience - coz she had a very similar discharge on her first missed miscarriage (after the doc gave her a pill to expel the dead fetus). So, we ran to the ER with the tissue collected in a box, praying and hoping that the other one is fine.
The OB/Gyn recommended an immediate ultrasound scan and thankfully, it turned out that both fetus are fine. It was just a blood clot - but it was huge - almost 4cms. So, the scan revealed that there is a little of it left near to one of the sacs. OB/Gyn doubled her daily dose of cyclogest ( she's already taking folic acid and baby asprin).
We came back from the hospital 18hours ago.. and she's been bleeding (very little - not even like half pad) since then. I thought I will ask this question here.. Is it ok if she bleeds like this for a day or two? How much is too much?
Thanks for your help in advance - I tried looking up a lot on web, but didn't get much. Hoping to hear from your experiences.
hi there im a mother of six and I also have a set of twins. Bleeding can be common in the first trimester if she notices a increase of blood heavy cramps or clots she will need to be seen . It would be best if she takes it easy and stays in bed til the blood decreases and no sexual intercourse until shes completly done bleeding.
