Is it normal to throw up blood?

I am about 1 1/2 months pregnant and dealing with some all-day sickness. Lately I have been throwing up every other day or so. This morning I threw up the sip of water I took, then some nasty yellow stomach acid and at the end I threw up some blood. It wasn't a lot, but definitely red. Should I be worried?

  • Maybe you busted a blood vessel in your stomach.I would go to the ER or call the doc.

  • When you throw up you scratch the inside of your esoughgus from the gagging causing your vomit to have bright red streaks in it. It is normal when you throw up really hard. If you were spitting up pure blood then you need to be concerned. Doesn't sound like the case.
