No: Bleeding occurs in many pregnancies that have good outcomes. However, the first episodes bleeding during a pregnancy are always worrisome to women and to most providers. So women with bleeding should notify and see OB providers for evaluation of themselves, ultrasound their fetuses and placentas, attempt to determine cause, check on blood type or hemoglobin, counseling about what to do and not do.
