With DS I bled (not spotted, bled) every week for 8 weeks. He is a happy, healthy 23 month old.
With this one I gushed blood several times. So far everything is going just fine. Hang in there, I know it's hard to be hopeful.
I bled while pregnant with DS.
We were TTC and I was trying not to stress out and test too often. AF came in late March, but in April I POAS just to be sure before going on vacation. BFN. I thought AF came again in April, so I didn't test. By May I was having so many pregnancy symptoms my doctor did a blood test to check for pregnancy before he would treat my symptoms. BFP. It turns out March was my LMP.
My point is I bled enough to believe it was AF. I also had spotting other times throughout the pregnancy. DS was born full term at a healthy 9lb 3oz. Every time I experienced spotting my OB sent me for an u/s.
I bled a bit with my LO when I was at 28 weeks...we were worried it was pre-term labor but it was not!
As far as early pregnancy - I did not - but I know a bunch of family members who bled throughout their pregnancies, especially early on and everything was fine.
Good luck - if I got too worried I might call the dr. just to sleep better!
This monday, at work, i felt a huge gush of something so went to the bathroom. My underwear was filled with dark red blood with a couple small clots. I freaked out! I thought for sure i was having a miscarriage. I had a doctors apt later that day and they told me I am 6 weeks. They did some blood work and my HCG level came back low, but my progesterone was where it should be. I was still a little nervous. 72 hours later I went back to get my blood drawn again.
Just got the results yesterday, and my HCG went from 2,800 to 6,500!! Everything is great!
Try and keep a positive attitude, it really helps : )
