Hello. : Hello. First off, i cannot tell you the reason that you have microscopic blood in your urine. When the blood in urine can only be seen with a microscope that is called microscopic hematuria. There can be many causes, some of which are serious and others which will resolve with no treatment. I do not know if you are a woman or a man. Women develop urinary tract infections more often than men so that are more likely to get hematuria. Hematuria can be the result of infections, inflammation or injury to the bladder, ureters, urethra or the kidneys. Pain can be generated from kidney stones or urinary tract infections. Sometimes older people can have blood in the urine from cancer in the prostate gland or in the urinary tract. Your cramps may or may not be associated with your hematuria. Please ask the doctor who ordered your urine test, how this correlates to your symptoms. He or she is in the best position to figure this out.

Should I be concerned about belly pain and bleeding at two months?

Yes: Bleeding in the first trimester suggests possible miscarriage. It can also be due to other causes. Cramping and bleeding together are worrisome. In all cases it is best for women to contact their OB providers for an evaluation and diagnosis.

Hemoglobin hematocrit and red blood cell low counts and glucose and nitrogen high what is cause

Numbers are numbers: Lab results are numbers, and numbers are just numbers. They have little meaning without looking at the whole person. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell counts means blood cells are not being made fast enough, are being lost (through bleeding), are being broken up, or any combination of such problems. Glucose goes up from increased body stress, inadequate insulin, I.V. Glucose, etc....

Who told you that ?: The american academy of pediatrics & many other advisory groups have promoted sleeping on a babies back since the early 90's. Since that time we have seen a 40-50% drop in crib death over that period. I know of no one that advises belly sleeping for any reason, although if baby rolls into that position after 6m i don't try to change it. Tummy time while awake can help build upper body strength.
