I'm 8 weeks 6 days, and just started bright red heavy bleeding about an hour ago. Big gush and now it seems to be slowing down/maybe stopping. No clots except a small one. No cramping. I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks and had a hb of 138. DH and I DTD this morning, about 9 hours before the bleeding.

Nurse's line said that it's just a matter of waiting, and if I get horrible cramps or excessive bleeding, to go to the ER.

What are my chances of this turning out ok? My previous pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage and a d&e. Pregnancy before that was healthy and textbook. For those of you who have had a natural miscarriage, is this how it started for you?

I want to be realistic but I'm cautiously optimistic. For some reason I don't feel as doomed as I did with the last one, where I had no sign that anything was going wrong.
