Ask a Gynaecologist and Get Answers to Your OB/GYN Questions ASAP
Hello, and thank you for your question. I will be happy to assist you. Answers are for educational purposes only.
I am sorry you are still experiencing this.
Did you have the ultrasound yet now that you are 6 weeks?
Great. Any cramping?
That is also very reassuring.
Bleeding early in pregnancy can be from many things. It could be residual implantation bleeding. It could be that you had a little collection of blood behind the chorionic sac and it needs to come out as it is resolving.
It also could be residual from the uti. Although less likely with the mucus.
It does not sound like a miscarriage because of the lack of cramping and the fact that it hasn't gotten worse.
The ultrasound on wednesday will definitely give you more definitive information.
I believe we chatted last week.
I think it is a good sign that things have not gotten worse.
I understand. The ultrasound at 6 week should show a heart beat. So you will definitely be able to tell about viability.
It may also show the reason for the bleeding. Although most likely, no clear reason for the bleeding will be seen. The key will be to see appropriate growth to six weeks and a heart beat.
It could cause rectal bleeding, but would not expect to see vaginal bleeding from it, even with straining.
Consider stool softener and daily fiber.
It sounds like it from the way you are describing. It should help.
Your very welcome. Best of luck on wednesday.
