In my time spent on the TTC board I have seen this happen with 2 or 3 other women as well. Including with heavy bleeding! It is not common at all but it does happen!
in some of these cases it may be, rather than breakthrough bleeding, a subchorionic hematoma which can cause heavy bleeding and clotting and more often than not does not result in a miscarriage (probably the most common cause of early pregnancy bleeding other than miscarriage)
Evergreen- Loving my girls Dylan age8, Ava age 4 and baby Georgia (6/3/11).
In one of my pregnancies, I had enough bleeding early on that, had I not known I was pregnant, I might have thought I had a couple of menstrual cycles. It was enough to send me scared to the OB both times. It was much lighter than my regular cycle, but my regular cycles were ridiculously painful, long, and bloody.
That said... I had monthly bleeding while pregnant with dd1. Every month, heavy bleeding (red blood, filled pads, etc). As a result there was a lot of worry about placenta previa. I was told initiall that I'd had a miscarriage. Then I switched providers and had an u/s that showed I was pregnant. Every month I had another u/s to check that the bleeding wasn't a miscarriage or previa... I ended up getting to know the hospital u/s tech pretty well!
With dd2 I had bleeding for a few months but not the whole pregnancy, and with ds I had just your standard implantation bleeding.
After my experience with dd1 I started a thread called "when the spotting was ok" and I was amazed at how many other women had had similar experiences!
someone my dad knows didn't know she was pregnant because of monthly bleeding went to the pub toilet and baby was born head first into the toilet
