Anyone have this? I’ve had multiple episodes over the past few weeks, and was sent to L&D today for a bunch of tests and an ultrasound. Everything looks great, no issues…but they don’t know WHY I’m having spotting.
Anyone else have this? It drives me crazy to think that every time it happens from here on out I’ll have to go to the hospital for 3 hours of testing!!

@mrsmjm: No spotting for me, but I have heard that having an irritable uterus can cause spotting in the third trimester. Did they mention anything like that or just tell you everything was fine & sent you on your way? Does it happen after you’ve been active? If so, maybe doctor can put you on bedrest to see if that puts an end to it?

No, they didn’t say anything like that. They basically said they don’t know why it’s happening, but they’re not too concerned about it since everything looks great. They put me on pelvic precautions (which I’m pretty much already doing anyways) and told me to call when it happens.
I’m so glad the LO is ok, but am bummed that I could potentially be running to the hospital all the time. bleh. They’re doing another ultrasound in a week and a half to keep monitoring everything.

@mrsmjm: Hmm, I don’t know then. I haven’t dealt with that nor do I know anyone who has. Good thing they are constantly monitoring you! i will keep you & LO in my thoughts and prayers. I’m sure it’ll all be fine and I hope the spotting stops 🙂

I had spotting in my third trimester although it only happened once or twice. I called my doctor and they examined me and then sent me on my way since everything was fine.
