Bleeding during pregnancy

I am 10 weeks pregnant. For the past 3 weeks i have been bleeding 2 days out of each week. Is this normal. I am very worried.

Spotting is fairly common, about 30%. I had on and off spotting from the 5th week of my pregnancy to about the 10th week. The spotting was light but it was bright red and one day contained small clots. Bleeding is never normal, please see you dr. Good Luck!

I am 3 months pregnant and I spot after a vaginal ultrasound or if I strain when going to the bathroom. The doctor informed me it was discharge, sometimes all that is needed is bedrest or it could be a bruise on your uterus. It happened to me.
Get it checked out, but don't stress over this situation. Nothing can be done until you see a doctor.

Please keep me posted on what happens.

I spotted off and on weeks 9 through 13, sometimes multiple days in a row.  I even had one terrifying experience of a big bright red gush of blood.  I had multiple ultrasounds and exams during this time to try to determine the cause, but no reason was ever found.  I haven't spotted or bled at all since week 14 and I am now 24 weeks along.  Best of luck to you.

Technically, bleeding during pregnancy is never considered normal and should always be reported to your OB.  If it's just light/spotting, it can wait until your next appointment.  If it is a bit heavier, or there are clots and cramping, give them a call.

All that being said, lots of us have experienced bleeding during pregnancy, particularly in first trimester.  Statistically it's about 30% of women.  Most of the time everything is just fine.  Still, best to let your Dr. know about it.

Congrats on your pregnancy, and all the best to you!

I am 7 weeks 1 day and I have been bleeding for about 3 days now, At first I had mild cramping and very light bleeding and at first i was only bleeding when straining while using the bathroom it kinda got heavier so i went to the ER(they said it looked like there was a sac, but i was too early to see anything), and then now it has almost completely stopped. My OB is checking my hormone levels, and they are at 82. I go back in tomorrow for more testing to see if they are doubling. But I am not feeling any symptoms beside tiredness, and some nausea but no vomiting..Anybody else experience this?
