Bleeding During Pregnancy

Bleeding during pregnancy is common for women to have spotting or bleeding in their first 12 weeks of pregnancy. However, because bleeding can be a sign of a problem, your OBGYN doctor may have some blood work done to determine the level of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), a hormone that normally increases during pregnancy. This test may be done more than once so the Obstetrician can see if the levels are increasing. In addition, an ultrasound may be done to see if the cause of the bleeding can be found. Are you worried about cramps during pregnancy? Many women who experience vaginal bleeding usually have little or no cramps during pregnancy at all, the bleeding stops and the pregnancy will go on. Conversely, bleeding during pregnancy, strong cramps during pregnancy in the lower abdomen and tissue passing through the vagina are symptoms of a miscarriage.
