Question Asked:

"Hello doc. I am nine weeks pregnant and I noticed last week Saturday that a small drop of blood stained my pant. The blood stain is very small though but I am scared and for like one week now, the small blood keeps coming though I don't need to wear pad or pant liner because it is just small but I am just scared. This baby means a lot to me and I don't want to lose my baby. What can I do to stop seeing the small blood though I am not bleeding and I still feel a lot of pregnancy signs and I have a round baby bump already and I have also really gained weight so also my nipple area is very dark.

    Good morning and congrats on your pregnancy. In as much as you are feeling pregnant, the human mind is not enough to know what is going on down there. Not to scare you but any bleeding at all should be reported to your doctor. Have you commenced antenatal? If yes since the spotting commenced have you spoken to your midwife and/or doctor about it? If no please call in and do fix an appointment so you and your baby are checked to confirm that all is well. From your description it's nothing really but it's worth hearing it after possibly an ultrasound to see your baby doing fine. For now maintain bed rest, adequate fluid, eat regularly. This stage (1st trimester is very crucial). Don't hesitate to fix an appointment. All the best.
