Our expert says:
This is what is called a threatened miscarriage. This is usually due to bleeding behind the placenta. If it all settles down, there should not be any effect on the baby. However, there is always a risk that you will bleed again and miscarry. The bedrest would be important at this stage. Many women have one miscarriage and this is usually because of an abnormality of the baby, nature's way of preventing giving birth to an abnormal child. More than one would need investigation.
It is a bit early to plan your maternity leave now. I would suggest you wait and see what happens in the next month or so.
