i noticed earlier today when I was in the bathroom that when I wiped- there was a pinky/brown rings to the toilet paper, and then nothing else the further 7 times I’ve been to the toilet this evening.
Ive just gone to the toilet before bed and ive noticed it again, a little darker than before with the tiniest fresh blood. Do you guys have any advice for me?

I’m going to say all good. Same thing happened to me my first pregnancy and full out bleeding for my second and third. Talk about nerve wracking. But contact your obgyn if you are unsure. Good luck darling. I’m sure all is good and baby is snug in there. 🙂

Thank you so much for that. I’ve read it’s very common, but it’s so nerve wracking, I feel I keep going to the toilet to check. I just went there and it was very very light, hardly noticeable. 🙂 I’m going to call the Dr on Monday.

how far along are you? it seems most people think a small amount of blood is no cause for concern. **edit** i took too long to type and see you and 6 weeks, sounds very normal!! but call doctors if you feel concerned**
if you’re experience severe pain and heave bleeding i would be concerned, but I think otherwise what you’re describing is perfectly normal 🙂

Sounds normal to me! I had regular spotting from 6 weeks until 9 1/2 weeks, I even passed a small blood clot at 7 weeks, and while it was an extremely nerve racking time I’m currently almost 28 weeks along with a healthy little girl 🙂
From my understanding if you aren’t cramping or filling a pad you’re okay. Definitely speak to your doctor if you have any concerns. Congrats on your pregnancy!!

Thank you for those comments, I feel a little better hearing that from other ladies who have also experienced this.
I had very light cramping, but I’ve had that since last week and was told this is normal as it’s your body changing: there was no really painful cramping or anything that seemed different.
When I’ve gone to the toilet this morning, it’s more brownish- like the end of a period, no signs of fresh blood or other dc.

Sounds like implantation spotting to me. If the cramps don’t match when you see fresh blood it’s fine.
I had spotting at 6 weeks and 9 weeks – scan both times were fine. Also had it again at 27 weeks due to a sensitive cervix.
Am currently feeding my 6 day old little boy 🙂

I spotted in week six and eleven. It scared me greatly but my Doctor said it was fine as it was quite light. Right now I’m holding my five month old baby boy so it all worked out fine! Anytime I spotted I just tried to rest more.

This might be tmi but is it happening after a bm? I had spotting a few times after using the bathroom and totally freaked out. My ob had me come in to check my HCG levels and also for an early ultrasound and everything was a-okay. It turns out that it was from straining a bit (thanks, pregnancy hormones 😫). Now I’m loading up on mangoes and other fiber-rich foods, as well as drinking tons of water and it seems to be helping!

I know others have responded saying the same but a little extra comfort never hurts for something like this.
I had some cramping at the grocery store at 4w5d and then noticed bright red spotting when I wiped that night. I came out of the bathroom crying telling DH I was sure it was the start of a MC. Well there was no more spotting or cramping after that. Still called the dr the next morning. She said I was likely fine if it stopped. I’m now 8w3d, had my first appointment last week, and saw a healthy baby measuring right on track with a HR of 168.

Hey lady. I had the same spotting but without cramping, was prescribed pregosterone suppositories 100mg x 2 a day and bleeding went down to almost nothing. Ask your doctor about your hormone levels.

if it’s light and/or brownish, you’re probably fine. if the bleeding gets heavier or doesn’t stop, then that’s something to be concerned about.
i had heavy-ish spotting with my first pregnancy and was diagnosed with a subchorionic hemmorhage. i ended up losing that baby at 9 weeks.
this time around, i had some spotting early on, but it was always brown and pretty light and so far everything’s been going great. 25 weeks and counting!

I had spotting in my first pregnancy around 8 weeks, I was so worried. I called the on-call OB (since my OB was away) and she said only time will tell but to try to relax, put my feet up and drink lots of water. That baby is a 9.5 year old big boy now! Thank goodness. As others have said, unless it gets heavier or there is sharp pain it is likely nothing to worry over. If it is still continuing tomorrow (even as just spotting) it’s a good idea to give your OB a call – maybe they will offer to check on progesterone levels as another poster mentioned.

Did you have sex? I would have spotting sometimes after having sex. Everything is a lot more vascular inside when you’re pregnant, and that could lead to a little spotting.
