I went through the same thing. I'm going to assume you are a lot like me right now and want to know as much info as possible. What it could be is what's called a threatened miscarriage. My doctor told me about half of all pregnancies go through it. I was around the same time as you when I went through it. It's like a last chance for your body to say, no...this baby isn't viable enough to go full term. It's scary. If you go to the ER, expect an ultrasound (that was my first sight of the baby) and a visual look at your parts. There will also be blood tests. They will want to check and see if your cervix is open. If it's closed, you will most likely be fine as will baby. I noticed that if I just laid on the couch and wasn't active (even though the ER doc said it didn't matter if I was active or not..the same thing would happen), the bleeding slowed and stopped. My cramping continued and continues today, but that's mostly due to other issues (i have a fibroid and my body isn't wanting to adjust around the uterus...just flex around it). Drink lots of fluids and try to keep your blood pressure down. Hard things to do, I know.....please keep us posted!
