Pregnancy bleed: Any bleeding during pregnancy needs to be evaluated promptly by your doctor. About 50% of women experience some degree of bleeding in early pregnancy making it very common but not normal. Most are fine but sometimes bleeding can indicate a tubal pregnancy or miscarriage. Get checked.

It may be a: Miscarriage. I would give your doctor a call in the morning so that you can find out the status of your pregnancy. Of course if you develop severe pain or hemorrhage then you should be seen at the er. I am sorry you are going through this. Take care.
