I personally can’t relate, but I do know of someone personally that had their full blown period each month up until they were 6 months and delivered a healthy baby.  It happens.

I also know someone who was recently pregnant that had her period the whole time she was pregnant. She found out she was pregnant at 8 months and delivered a healthy baby girl.

My aunt had at least one full blown period while pregnant with my cousin. I’ve also heard of twin pregnancies where one of the babies is lost in an early miscarriage before twins could be detected. I’m glad you still have a progressing baby in there, I hope things continue to go well for you!

I also know someone who, with both her pregnancies, experienced “period like” bleeding every month until 6-7 months. It was to the point that she didn’t know she was prengnat for a long time with both since she was still bleeding around her period time every month. She had 2 healthy babies in the end and I hope this is the case for you!

I have 2 close friends who woke in the middle night with full heavy bleeding. Everyone thought it was a miscarriage. One had a totally normal healthy pregnancy past that & had a healthy full term baby boy. The other had a few complications & delivered her soon a bit premature. He was in nicu for a few weeks but is a chunky healthy 1yr old now. As my ob says “the norm is not the same thing for everybody”. Good luck. Congrats on the good ultrasound.

You might want to look at some info on subchorionic hematoma as well.  I’ve read quite a few stories of women who had a lot of bleeding during early pregnancy and a lot of times it turned out to be caused by this.  I think in most cases it resolves on its own.  Not sure if this is what you are experiencing or not, but it might offer a possible explanation for the amount of bleeding but progress on the ultrasound.  Good luck!

You may also want to ask your doctor to monitor your HCG levels (beta testing).  This is where you get a blood test every 48 hours to make sure your hcg is doubling.  I ended up miscarrying early and we were able to tell that it was coming because my hcg levels stopped doubling.  Hope that isn’t the case for you!
