Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

I KNOW ITS NORMAL TO BLEED WHILE PREGNANT BUT WHY DOES MY STOMACH HURT

5 answers
I AM BLEEDING LIKE I WOULD BE ON A REGULAR PERIOD BUT I HAVEN'T BLED AT ALL SINCE I GOT PREGNANT. AT FIRST I WAS SPOTTING SO I DECIDED TO TAKE IT EASY TODAY AND JUST STAY IN BED. BUT NOW IT'S AS IF I'M ON MY PERIOD. ASIDE FROM THAT I WAS CRAMPING AS WELL. I NEVER WOULD CRAMP DURING MY REGULAR PERIODS SO I'M NOT SURE HOW BAD IT'S SUPPOSED TO HURT.

From what I've been told and read, any bleeding at all during your pregnancy is a sign of trauma (spotting is considered okay simply because it is so minimal). If you are bleeding like you are having a period you need to go see a physician.
Me And My BestFriend Stomach Hurts We Think We are Pregnant And Just Likee You I Spot To Idkk But A Real Period But Everyones Body Are Diffrent My Auntie Was Pregnant She Bleeded Like A Regular Person But She Also Had Twins And She Did Not Know HopeFully Thats Not A Sign That Im Going To Have Twins LOL.
You should call your physician.  This could be serious and you should definately not wait around at home.  It is very possible that nothing is wrong, but better to be safe than sorry.  I expierenced bleeding in my 11th week with no cramping and my doctor suggested that I go to the emergency room immediately.  It turned out to be nothing -- but it was well worth the peice of mind. 
Spotting and cramping are considered normal during very early pregnancy.  This is when implantation takes place in your uterus.  I had menstrual-like cramping during my 5th - 8th week of pregnancy.  This is why I kept waiting for my period.  Heavy bleeding and intense cramping  is serious and needs immediate medical attention.  It is always better to be safe than sorry, that was my motto during my pregnancy, and believe me it payed off!
i am also bleeding like a normal period but there is absolutly no pain at all. im guessing im about 5 weeks and im a little concerned because my breasts are still tender and have those white things in the nipples when they are even slightly touched. should i still be worried? beacause i dont think im miscarriaging if my boobs are still like that . i also read that some woman bleed like a normal period during implantation bleeding so im not exactly sure what to do.
