Welcome to ehealthforum.
The small peri sac bleeding is not alarming, continue to take bed rest. The bleed could have resulted from the trauma. If the fetal heart is fine, and you are not having bleeding or cramps, then do not worry. Avoid any activity (even intercourse) that can cause strain. Keep your diet with high fiber foods, and fruits to avoid constipation and straining. Be in complete bed rest for about 2-4 weeks. Take a repeat scan for fetal well being at end of 2-4 weeks.
Take care.
