In brief: Bleeding early

20-30% of early pregnancies will have some bleeding in the first 13wks.
Uterine cramping, (like a period), and a size less than dates measurement on ultrasound are also worrisome.

In brief: Risk of miscarriage

A diagnosis of "threatened abortion" indicates that you've experienced cramping/bleeding during pregnancy that raise concern for possible miscarriage, however your exam shows a closed cervix and a fetal heartbeat indicating that things might still be just fine.
Threatened abortions can resolve and normal, healthy pregnancies result afterwards. Be seen by your OB for any further bleeding/pain.
