Fell on the ice this morning, on my side so my thigh and arm took the brunt but came into work and went to loo and I'm spotting. I would call it a bleed but I believe spotting is the term to use. OB's phone engaged so killing time. Trying to be calm. Imagining cramps now but I know they're not there.

Emme, I know its hard but try not to panic. I had spotting twice in my early pregnancy and everything was fine. I went to the maternity hospital for a scan though just to be on the safe side. Thats probably what you're doctor will tell you to do.... Don't worry - I'm sure it'll be fine!

Emme, don't panic but get it checked out as it is following a fall. They will scan and reassure you. Let us know how you are and take care :xxx

Don't panic. I do think they will get you to go in for a quick scan just to put your mind at ease, but, that is for the best. Take it easy until you get onto your obs - I am sure everything will be fine. FP

Emme, Hope your ok try to remember baby is well insulated in there, how many weeks are you now? Best thing would prob just to go into the ER of your mat hospital if you can so they can check you out and put your mind at ease.

Girls as ever thank you so much for your replies. I hung around for about 5 minutes after I posted and then my Ob told me to pop in to him so off I went, crapping myself. He did an examination (owwww) and a scan and all is well. I have pollops which are causing the bleeding (I had a bleed at Christmas as well) and a low lying placenta but all is well with babs. So PHEW!!!!! I am so glad I chose the OB I did, he was just so nice and reassuring. And thanks again to you! :thnk
