I'm 16 weeks pregnant and have some bleeding but the doctor said it's not the baby. What else might it be?

In brief: Placenta or cervix
If the bleeding is coming from outside the uterus, it could be the cervix or mucous plug in the cervix producing bleeding.
If it is coming from inside the uterus, it could be the developing placental edge. Ask you OB md to clarify the site of bleeding.
