10 wks pregnant, small pin size drops of blood

User Profile
I have had several small pin size drops of blood in my underwear through out the past 2 days but nothing when I wipe and 10 weeks pregnant? Is this normal? I have 3 other children and I never had any bleeding during my pregnancies with them.

Welcome to ehalthforum,
Few women tend to get decidual bleeding during first few months of pregnancy which occurs due to endometrial shedding from the areas that has not taken part in placental formation. The bleeding occurs around the expected period time, and usually not associated with PMS symptoms. Once the gestational sac enlarges and fills the entire uterus, this stops. For further clarification and assistance, visit your doctor/gynecologist. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. Look out for danger signs like increase in intensity of abdominal cramps, increasing back pain, fresh bleeding etc. Avoid lifting any heavy weights and avoid heavy work. Avoid standing for long duration and avoid climbing stairs. Avoid use of caffeinated and carbonated beverages. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
