Doctor: Nausea is common in pregnancy, but bleeding like yours is not. Please get a home pregnancy test first to confirm or nega te pregnancy as soon as possible. Nausea and discomfort like yours may also be symptoms of the so called Premenstrual Tension Syndrome (PMTS or PMS), and in PMS, these symptoms precede bleeding. Bleeding in pregnancy is a serious business and warrants urgent medical attention. Severe bleeding in miscarriage may be life threatening, if left untreated. Please take someone in your family into confidence, if possible, and seek medical help. Your doctor will help you out.
