Dr Owen :

This is not that unusual - this is very common to have this occur

Dr Owen :

Usually as long as this is NOT bright red bleeding - then is okay as this is just the placenta implanting more and the uterus growing and the cervix accommodating the pregnancy.

Dr Owen :

So I this point - I would follow up with HER doctor this week for an ultrasound

Dr Owen :

and also with a BLOOD pregnancy test

Dr Owen :

Make sure she is taking prenatal vitamins

Dr Owen :

drinking plenty of water and eating healthy

Dr Owen :
