Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

It is common for some women to bleed on and off during the first 3 months. However, any spotting or bleeding in first trimester should never be ignored. It can be due to simple causes such as cervicitis (infection/inflammation of cervix), vaginitis (infection/inflammation of vagina), or it can also be due to a part of uterine lining sloughing or due to threatened abortion. Sometimes it happens without a cause. It can also be due to hormonal imbalance.

You must immediately consult a gynecologist and maybe get another sonogram to visualize the baby. Also measure the blood HCG levels 48 hours apart to see if they are rising or not. Please do not ignore this as all bleedings during pregnancy should be investigated immediately as they could be due to threatened abortion.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
