Bleeding, and/or spotting during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester, is more common with twin pregnancies than singleton pregnancies. Small amounts of bleeding during pregnancy is normal and as long as the blood is not bright red, isn't associated with cramping, you are not passing clots, you don't have a fever and you are not bleeding a great deal, you should not freak out about it. But anytime you are worried about your pregnancy and any issues that may arise with it, you should always reach out to your ObGyn or mid-wife for answers or directions for what to do.
Bleeding can be caused for many reasons during pregnancy including cervical bleeding, a blood clot on the lining of your uterus, blood vessel pressure, hormone imbalance during pregnancy, subchorionic hematoma (bleeding caused by the blood build up within the folds of the chorion, the outer fetal membrane, next to the placenta), and more so don't immediately assume you are miscarrying without talking to your MD first.
