Bleeding while pregnant!

I took a hot bath last night, not knowing that causes a pregnant woman to bleed. My Dr's office is closed on weekends, so I called the after hours/ emergency number. I spoke with a nurse and she told me not to go to the hospital and I shouldn't be taking hot baths. But, that was 3 hours ago and I'm still bleeding.
This is my first pregnancy, I'm not cramping at all..

Has this happened to anyone else?

Bleeding how? A little bit, like spotting or like period bleeding?

Shouldn't take hot baths due to it raisimg your core body temp. But I've never heard it causes bleeding. And she's right about the Er, they really can't do anything anyways. Just rest and stay hydrated. Pretty much all you can do right now.

Forget that. If it's legitimate bleeding, not just spotting, go!

Bleeding how? I've also never been told a hot bath can cause bleeding, but it can cause lightheadedness and fainting.

It's not heavy, but I changed my pad twice. It's like I'm on my period.

I've never heard of a hot bath making a pregnant woman bleed. My doctor has recommended hot (not scalding) baths to help with severe lower back and hip pain.

How bad is the bleeding? Are you also cramping? How far along are you?

Some bleeding can be normal.

If you've changed your pad twice in 3 hours, that's heavy bleeding, and you need to be at the hospital, not on here.

I hope It's not a miscarriage, but I'm not cramping at all. I don't know what to do.
