U should go to your doctor and get checked by him through physical examination and ultrasound examination. Blood through vagina during pregnancy can be caused by various reasons. It can only be an ectropion or it can be a threatened miscarriage. So plez get urself checked.

Hi. I am in my first trimester of pregnancy, and last night I awoke with some pretty bad cramps. They felt like dehydration cramps, or just that I needed to go to the bathroom really bad. Nothing was coming out right away, but I started to feel faint and had to sit down on the floor a couple of times, and also felt nausea. I drank some sips of water, and broke out into a cold sweat after the faintness passed. Then I finally was able to pass my stools, and had some of the worst diarrhea I ve ever had. I drank some more water and went back to sleep. This morning when I woke up, I felt I needed to poop again, and liquid spurted out into the toilet, that I discovered was blood when I looked into the toilet. I ve gone a few times since then, and the bloodiness seems to be lessening, getting pinker, not as much, etc, but feels kind of bubbly when I am pushing out. My rectum does not hurt, I am not aware of a hemmhroid or tear.... Does this sound serious, or can I wait a bit to see how I feel in a few hours?

I took the laxative Senokot-S and colace for severe constipation. I am 16 weeks pregnant and read this could be dangerous and cause contractions and/or miscarriage. The Seonokot website says it is safe to take this as it is natural and gentle. I have a lot more cramping now then earlier today. Is this unsafe?
