How much bleeding is normal in pregnancy?

Is it normal to heavy bleeding in pregnancy? I know that some people have 'periods' during pregnancy but how heavy is it and how long does it last for?

Re: How much bleeding is normal in pregnancy?

I don't know how much is normal. I know some ladies have spotting. I have never had any type of bleeding during my pregnancy and I am currently 23 weeks.

Re: How much bleeding is normal in pregnancy?

Any bleeding/spotting should be discussed with your doc. Everyone is different, but I dont think heavy bleeding is normal. If you are bleeding heavy I would call now, or go to ER. Not to scare, but I wouldn't make that call on your own. Good Luck

Re: How much bleeding is normal in pregnancy?

I've never understood this, as I haven't bleed at all through my pregnancy, so maybe someone can explain.

How does one bleed, does the cervix not shut off completely in some cases? Or is it the cervix shedding it's plug?

Just wondering.
