  • Some women bleed during pregnancy and don't miscarry. I did with my first pregnancy. You may bleed for a week or even longer. I suggest calling your OB or midwife.

  • I agree with Gail. It could be normal. Call your OB/midwife, and talk with them. I think that the emergency room docs will generally tell a woman that she is miscarrying, and send them home, and that's not always the case. If they checked, and everything looked good, then I would wait it out (after a call to the doctor to see what they say).

  • Ask your doctor or the u/s tech if you have placenta previa. I started bleeding heavy at 13 weeks, still bleeding now at 15 weeks and thats what I have. It's when your placenta is covering your cervix. Causes bleeding but the baby is fine.
