I'm 5-6 week pregnant with my 2nd child, and i have never had a history of miscarriage before. Last Thursday i had heavy bleeding, but it happened once and fast and later on no more bleeding happened. I went to the emergency room and they told me to see the gynae on Saturday because they said that it should be nothing since there was no pain and the bleeding stopped.
On Saturday I had an ultrasound, and I could see my baby being well.

Is implantation bleeding suppose to be heavy? Even if it happened just once?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Heavy bleeding during early pregnancy is not a good sign.It indicates either a miscarriage or the possibility of a risk.Its good that the USG report was normal but you should be extra cautious now and any sort of bleeding must be immediately reported.
Consider visiting your Gynaecologist and check if you require Progesterone supplements and also evaluate the HCG levels.

Take Care!
