I'm 10-11 weeks pregnant and last night after a bowel movement ( which involved straining) I had some pink / brown / red blood when I wiped, about 4 tissues and it stopped. None in the panty liner. It was definately from my vagina. Then an hour or so later I went to the loo and there was a small amount of stringy red blood when I wiped I had nothing over night but some brown spotting when i wiped this morning. Iv got a dull back ache and tummy ache. My 12 week scan is tomorrow but im so worried. This didn't happen when I was pregnant with my first son.
I had some spotting and pain at 6 weeks and had a scan then and all was ok but I'm so worried has anyone else had similar happen to them? X
EDIT: just rang EPU and they said wait for scan tomorrow. Just went to loo and had some pink tinged cm when I wiped .
I had this all thru my pregnancy with Joshua hun and have had it again this time too. I wouldn't worry it's due to straining, with me it's a popped blood vessel around my cervix nothing todo with the womb or anything horrible like that. If your really worried or it gets worse contact your m/w xxx
I had this. I think its quite common and apparently the straining can cause irritation to cervix. If you are constipated, try some Lactulose/fybogel to keeps things moving so you arent straining so much. (basically the only things you can take i think, apart from upping fibre in diet and all that)
Im in exactly the same situation as u hun it happend to me last night after opening my bowels, it was quite a lot of blood too and lasted 7-8 hours, i had back ache and stomach ache after it too. i am so worried, iavnt got an appointment until monday morning x
I've had this happen before I was pregnant. Like a couple of the other ladies said, it sounds to me like you may have burst a small blood vessel on your cervix. The cervix is more sensitive and prone to bleeding during pregnancy, from what I've been told, so it would not be surprising for this to happen if you are straining. Sounds like nothing to worry about (although I know that can be difficult!)
In first tri, I would get so constipated and have to strain, and I would be in so much pain in my lower belly for a long time afterwards. I kept swearing one day I was just gonna push the baby out, and I would bleed all in the toilet every time I went. lol. Well, try a fiber supplement so you don't have to strain anymore. It's very likely that the blood is either actually from an anal fissure, a hemmorhoid that's popping up, or just from the pushing irritating your cervix.
