started lightly bleeding

Jun 03, 2012 - 9 comments

I have been a little constipated so have been pushing quite hard in the restroom area. Went to go wipe and had a little blood on toilet paper. wiped again and was more blood on toilet paper. I'm so worried right now. I ran to bedroom and heard baby's HB. I have no cramps. Should I be worried. I'm 16 wks 3 days.

No, try not to be over reactive (I know the sight of blood when you are pregnant is our worst fear).
Contact your doctor ASAP as you should have it checked into.
Good luck

the blood may also be from straining, you may have a small internal hemmirod )sp) that may  have burst while straining, its not uncommon, if your sure its not from that area it still could be from your straining, as any pressure like that can cause irritation in your cervix and as its swollen during pregnancy and the blood vessels are close to the surface, one of those could have burst as well, I would keep an eye on it and if it get heavier go nd get checked out, or if your at all worried, go and see your docotr :)

I went to the bathroom again and bleeding turned to brown spotting and then the next time it was gone completely, so I guess it was the straining. If it stays gone until my appt on thursday i will ask my dr about it then, but for now I have confidence everything is okay. Thanks ladies

This happened to me too. I was constipated for about 2 weeks (around 26 weeks?) and when i'd wipe there was blood but my doctor told me that pregnancy causes constipation and for a lot of women hemorrhoids (inside and outside) and most likely it was just a small tear on the inside from straining. Just keep checking for blood and if it happens only during a BM it's probably just that. Keep checking heartbeat and that should keep you feeling okay and then talk about it with your ob.

You should be okay to take stool softeners too. They'll help.

I'm sure everything is fine.  Are you sure the blood came from 'there' and not from straining to go?  (sorry TMI)  Definitely call your doctor.  Either way they'll want to see you.  Good luck! :)

I am glad the bleeding has stopped and I hope it is gone for good now.
