When I was pregnant and well into my 2nd trimester, I experienced cramping and bleeding. I was rushed into the hospital but the doctors didn't find anything wrong, aside from minor contractions on one wall of my uterus. Since then, I had bleeding on and off during the entire course of my pregnancy. Thankfully, I was able to carry my baby to term (I was actually overdue).
