Pregnancy / Miscarriage / Premature birth help.

Basically, my character is about 19-20 years old, living in modern day. She was pregnant when she was 18, had a few drinks and fell down the stairs. This was her first miscarriage. When she was 19, she went to rehab for her cocaine addiction, but very shortly after getting out, she became pregnant again, but I'm going to say that it was too soon for her to get pregnant right after getting sober, so I decided for her to have another miscarriage.

Now I'm on her third pregnancy (first of all, is this possible to even have two miscarriages and a somewhat smooth third pregnancy?)

About six or seven months into her pregnancy, she and her significant other get into a stressful situation and fight. Point: I want her to bleed during this pregnancy. I want them to get into a fight and for her boyfriend to get blood on his hands from it staining through her clothes (or undergarments. Not sure what her wardrobe will be during the fight).

But I want the baby to survive!

So if she bleeds that much to the point where her boyfriend can have some on his hands, is there a chance the baby can survive? I want this effect to sort of freak the readers out as if for them to say 'Oh, no, not again!'

I asked my mom about this, and she said that bed rest would help the baby survive and reduce the bleeding. I want about a month of bed rest for her before she goes into premature labor for the baby to survive.

I hope this is understandable. If not understandable, feel free to ask whatever in the comments. I feel like I've done an amount of research, but I want to see if it's organized or not.

It would help me out a lot!

Thanks in advance!
