User :   ok
Doctor :   i expect it to stop in a few weeks time as the pregnancy advances
User :   ok thats good
User :   as ive heard of women being ordered to bed rest through pregnancy i was a bit worried
Doctor :   be watchful , see to it that you are not passing clots
Doctor :   yes, if there is more bleeding , bed rest and minimal activity with some medication and scans would be helpful
Doctor :   if you pass clots anytime report to your doctor immediately
User :   ok
