I had a radical trachelectomy in 2009, and just started trying to get pregnant early this year. I am happy to say that it only took a few months and now I'm pregnant.
I have wonderful care, however as post trachelectomy pregnancies provide little history or background, it is difficult to know what is "normal" in these sorts of situations.
Just a week ago I experienced bleeding. As it was not a continuous flow and the fact that I was not experiencing cramps, the doctor said that it was no cause for concern. 4 days later I experienced the same again, this time the doctor asked that I come in. I got an ultrasound and everything appeared to be fine. Later the same day, blood again, another ultrasound, and everything seemed fine.
The doctor said that there can be unexplained blood loss during pregnancies and the fact that I had a trachelectomy could be one of the causes but doesn't necessarily indicate a problem with the pregnancy. He said that we would just keep an eye on it and that I should report future blood loss and/or cramps.
That was 2 days ago, I have blood loss again. I'm sitting here crying, I would like to think everything is ok, but it has been drilled in my head that bleeding during pregnacy is not good. I still have 24 weeks to go!
Has anyone else experienced these sorts of symptoms during your pregnancy?
