Spotting at 18 weeks 😩

Katie • 🇦🇺 Daughter born via IVF in Nov 2015. 2nd IVF = BFP #2! Due Aug 2018

So I took myself off to the emergency room on Tuesday after waking up with brown discharge - they did a quick ultrasound and baby looked fine, heart rate was good. More spotting again yesterday after (TMI) I had to strain on the toilet, this time light red, but only when I wiped. Seems to have cleared up today.

Anyone experience anything similar? I’m trying not to stress out, I can feel the baby moving which puts me at ease.

At my 12 week scan they told me I had a low lying placenta, so I’m thinking that’s what might be causing the bleeding...

Just wish I knew for sure everything was ok.
