The women i know who had monthly bleeding that looked like a period were pregnant and all delivered healthy babies, how when this is supposedly rare?

When a woman is : Pregnant her periods cease. However, she could experience bleeding that is not a period. I have never heard of a pregnant woman have monthly bleeding at the time she would have experienced a period. You might want to double check the accuracy of the information you heard. ...Read more

While 1 in 5: pregnancies spontaneously terminates, they are no less painful and frustrating not to mention the sense of loss and other emotions that come up exacerbated by the body hormones running amok. I think your feelings are your normal. After losing two, you have to be fearful the same will happen. Maybe your feeling fed up is a way of protecting yourself from another loss. But, this pg is diff. Bond ...Read more

22w pregnant w twins, feels like a ball tightening up/pushing out where one of the babies is. No pain. Is that the baby pushing out or braxtonh?
