Hi Sir My wife have 19 week pregnancy. From 7 week pregnancy she have regular bleeding/spotting ( 2 to 7 drops) from vagina . Every time we contact our gynaecologist and she told us that she have low laying placenta . Due to low laying placenta she have spotting. Last day she go through another ultrasound and she said placenta is still moving up side. May be the spotting will be less from 20 weeks. Is it ok.........

Hi bharodia,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
No, it is not normal, it is a complicated pregnancy and you can see that she is having regular bleeding.
The good part is that it is not much. She must have full rest till delivery, avoid all kind of travel, take good nutritious diet with good iron supplements, get hemoglobin levels and gynecologist visits regularly to avoid unforeseen complications.
There is a hope that as pregnancy would advance with the increasing size of uterus the placenta would move up and bleeding would be less but that should not make you care free.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
