Bleeding... and ?? (maybe tmi)

My last period was Feb 28th and it was really heavy, and was lightly spotting on and off for a couple weeks after then stopped. April 1st (around the time I should've gotten a period) I started spotting again and it lasted through this past Sunday. So instead of getting a period, I spotted for 7 days, which is unusual for me as mine are always on the heavy side. I thought that was wierd so I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was positive! (:  Then a few hours later, I started bleeding bright red blood. :( I called my midwife office and the nurse said it is probably a miscarriage (what I figured), but it is still possible for it not to be. Now it's just a wait and see. I have an appointment the beginning of May. Unless, I start going thru more than a pad an hour or start cramping bad, I just have to wait.

Has anyone started bleeding red and still had a healthy baby?

Oh and I guess I would be about 5 1/2 weeks.

 When I was pregnant with Noah I had bright red bleeding at 7 weeks and the doctor said it was a miscarriage. They wanted to do a D&C right then but I refused, went home to deal with my emotions...it had been 7 years of ttc after all....I bled heavy, had cramping, even clots....went back a week later for a followup and they told me my  blood tests looked weird.  Dr figured there was still some residual tissue.  Nope, ultrasound showed a happy healthy little embryo spinnning in circles!  The belief is that there was another one that didnt make it. But, I had bright red bleeding with my two other pregnancies as well....and both babies are just fine.  =)  I do have a very sensitive, incompetent cervix....thats why it bleeds.

Thank you. I hope something like this is the case with me. After I bled earlier, I put a pad on. There is hardly anything on the pad and when I wipe its mainly a lot of clear discharge with a little blood mixed in. So hopefully everything will be ok, but I guess only time will tell.

I already have an appointment for a follow up for something else with my general Dr tomorrow, so I will bring this up to him.

Thank you. And good luck to you too. If this one, sticks even through the bleeding, my estimated due date will be Dec 5th

I went to my general Dr this morning and they did a urine test. I am definitely pregnant. He said the positive result showed up immediately. Wasn't too concerned about the bleeding. I'm just gonna try to take it easy until my next appt. And pray.
