About 10%: Bleeding in early pregnancy is always concerning. However, a strong heart-beat is reassuring. Sometimes bleeding happens as the placenta burrows into the uterine wall and uncovers the spiral arteries that supply blood to the uterus. All you can do is watch and wait and repeat the ultrasound. Your risk of miscarriage is about 10%. Best wishes!
