No, but certainly : Can occur. Bleeding may be harmless or in some cases is a harbinger for pregnancy loss.

A 23-year-old female asked:

Is light bleeding through pregnancy normal ?

Usually not: Occasionally a woman may have frequent light bleeding multiple times during pregnancy. But any bleeding should prompt a woman to get care soon: it may mean a miscarriage, premature labor, an abnormal placenta, or other problems. It should not be ignored. If you're not sure if you're pregnant, a pregnancy test is very accurate.

It can be: About 25% of pregnancies will have some amount of bleeding. The presence of bleeding does not necessarily indicate a problem. Be sure to contact your OB about it. If you develop a severe increase in bleeding or severe pain, call your OB or go to the ER. Hope this helps!
