no tests were done, i went to the doctor again and the baby is growing fine the bleeding has stopped but i am worried about the baby as one mom adviced me that bleeding while pregnant can cause disability to the baby, how true is that i was scared to ask my doctor so he can check the possibility of my unborn baby being disabled.

Go back to hospital. Don' t want to alarm you, but this is not right.
