If you are having any vaginal bleeding,then you need to be cautious. Any sign of heavy bleeding, you need to be examined immediately by your doctor.If you are having any rectal bleeding,it could be due to hemorroids/anal fissures etc. That does happen in pregnancy mostly due to constipation. You can use stool softners to help you with that. Eat lots of leafy vegetables,plenty of fruits and water. If you have Hemoglobin lower than 10, you need to take some active treatment for anemia. Tablets and injections are available.
