IUD and pregnant

Hi all! SO heres my story. I have 4 kids. I got an IUD put in after my little man was born about a year and a half ago. I've been feeling really crappy for the last month or so  back pain for a week then gas pain and tired and well I took a pregnancy test 2 days ago and SURPRISE here we go again! I'm not unhappy that I'm pregnant though the timing is a little less than desireable the problem is I'm so fricken scared I'm going to miscarry because of the stupid IUD that I'm scared to get excited. I went to the doctors today and had blood work done and the doctor removed the IUD. She told me some bleeding was completely normal but how much is some? Has anyone else here gotten pregnant with an IUD? If so how much bleeding did you have after removal? I have to wait till Thurs. For more blood work and an US and I think I'm going to go crazy with the waiting. I've had blood when I wipe after peeing (and some clotty stuff) but very little actualy on the pad am I miscarrying? The doctor also said if I'm going to miscarry from removal of the IUD it will be fairly soon. Any others been here? TIA for any advice I hate the waiting game!!!
