    Exclamation Bleeding at 29 weeks...help!

    This is my first pregnancy, I'm 21, and 29 weeks pregnant. About an hour ago I noticed that I was spotting and it's gotten a little heavier since. I'm really nervous since its my first baby, and I don't know whether its totally normal or if I should be going to the hospital.

    You should absolutely call your OB and ask their opinion. Describe your symptoms (any abdominal pain? cramping? contractions? Amount of blood? Do you have any concerns re: your placenta and its position?) and let her opinion guide whether or not to go to L&D triage. Don't muck around posting on the internet for such a potentially important problem!

    Thank you. I did end up calling my doctor and I went in to the hospital, they checked me in, i spent the night, and today I am having an ultrasound to determine if I have possible placenta previa. They gave me two shots for the baby's lungs in case this is a sign of premature labor.

    You absolutely did the right thing. Good luck and I hope you hang on to your babe a little longer.
