Have you had heavy bleeding and everything be ok?

Every since I found out I was pregnant I have had heavy bleeding off and on. Today I gushed blood and am still bleeding. It started at 230 and I called my dr. and the nurse told me to come in. After a pelvic exam and ultrasound everything seems fine. Have you had this or know someone who did without miscarrying? Was everything ok? Thanks!
P.S. I went through 3 pads within an hour and a half but it has slacked off some.

  • I did know someone who went through this and everything turned out ok...As long as there is no severe pain accompaning it everything should be just fine, but do not hesitate to call your dr again if you feel you need to. Trust me my doc saw me more than anyone in the office prolly...I couldnt feel my lil one move bc of where my placenta was located unless he got his feet in my ribs, but by the end of my pregnancy that is where he stayed was in my ribs so I always knew he was ok. I think he felt my concerns and so he decided to help mommy out, lol..Good luck with your pregnancy. I'm sure everything will be ok.

  • I had bleeding in the first trimester and i didnt even know i was pregnant i thought i was just getting my period. But i went to the doc for a routine pap and he drew blood and said i was preggo. i stopped bleeding for awhile then it started again and my doc did some exams and found i had kidney stones and the blood was coming from my pee. everything was fine once i passed the stones which hurt like hell but after that i was fine. as long as you dont have severe pain im sure youll be fine.

  • I did at 16weeks of my pregnancy and diagnosed with a 9cm bleed on the left side of my uterus called a Subchorionic Hematoma. I just did a journal on it called "Praying for my baby". Im now 18weeks and my baby is still doing good, with a good and healthy heart beat. Im now clotting and stuck to strict bed rest intel my bleed goes away for sure.
