Fast forward to an ultrasound, which showed no visible explanation for my bleeding, and a healthy, viable pregnancy complete with heartbeat. The midwife said that this may just be a pregnancy with bleeding - that 50% have some bleeding, and many of those are just fine. She told me to go on pelvic rest, just to be safe. I will never "get used to" seeing blood where it shouldn't be, but I do have a big sense of relief knowing what's going on in there.
Almost the exact same thing happened to me on Friday. I was laying in bed and felt a big gush, ran to the bathroom and was soaked in dark red blood. I was convinced I was losing the baby, but I went to the ER and the bleeding stopped and there was a perfectly happy healthy baby ticking away. Again this morning I wiped and there was bright red, now its gone again but its SO terrifying. No cramping or pain or anything, just random bleeding. I spotted with my last pregnancy, but it was just tiny spots, not "bleeding" like this is. Its awful.
