Sounds like Placenta Previa or Placenta Abrupto.  If you are bleeding heavily, you need to get somewhere asap.  I bled like that and I had placenta previa.  I am 22 weeks now and it just went away.  Don't take any chances.

I'm right where you are.  I had unexplained bleeding throughout my first trimester and some of the second.  I think I had 3-4 vaginal ultrasounds all before 12 weeks.  The doctor never could figure it out.  Then I found out at 13 weeks I was having twins.  Then I was referred to a doctor at Maternal Fetal Medicine in Indianapolis, IN.  There I found out I had Placenta Previa and that is what had been causing all of my bleeding.  Now I get vaginal ultrasounds every 2 weeks to check on my cervix along with growth and measurement ultrasounds every 4 weeks for the twins.I also go to my regular OB doctor every month for now--eventually every week, 2 times a week, then 3 times a week.  I just found out yesterday that the placenta finally moved and that the previa is gone--thank God!!  You still have plenty of time for yours to move.  Just make sure that you are not having any period like bleeding.  If you do, call your doctor right away!  I am 22 weeks so it took some time for it to move...especially since each twin has her own placenta.  I will be on bed rest in about 6 weeks or less just because I am having multiples and have had issues.  Just stay strong and I am here if you need a friend!!

I know how you feel.  I am 22 weeks and I will have to go on bed rest in 6 weeks or less.  My doctor said that he doesn't even want me to go to Wal-Mart!!  No stores whatsoever!! No leaving the house! I feel like I will be chained to the couch.  I'm already feeling depressed just thinking about it. I'm trying to figure out what to do for 12 weeks.  If you need a bed rest buddy, I'll be here trust me.

Hi everyone!!  I am new here and pregnant with twins--both of which are girls.  I have had several problems so far.  Placenta Previa, dehydration, problem with one twin's umbilical cord, and I will be on ned rest in 6 weeks or less.  This is my second pregnancy and nothing at all like my first.  I'm scared and worried.  Is anyone out there having or have had problems like mine before?  I would like people to chat with so that I have some friends here before I am chained to the couch.  Thanks!!
