Sorry for late reply. How are you now? Has the bleeding slowed?
I bled throughout my 1st trimester in pregnancy 2 like a 15wk long light period. We bleed during pregnancy for a number of different reasons - your ligaments may have torn slightly as they have stretched to their new positions, you may have a low lying placenta, your cervix may be extra sensitive - it doesn't always mean something bad. Sadly the GP/MW won't know exactly what the cause is straight away.
Whilst waiting further tests (hard though it may be) it is best to relax as much as possible as this should help slow the bleeding down. You should avoid heavy lifting (ideally nothing over 15lbs) where you can & continue looking after your own health/diet. As previously mentioned there are several possible outcomes, whatever yours may be you will find help/support upon here.

On an extra note, if you're worried about rhesus neg/pos & needing anti-d, if you are rhesus neg & do need anti-d jabs it won't happen until you are over 13wks into term. x
