Spotting is normal during the first and second trimesters; I wouldn’t be alarmed unless there was a large quantity of blood, or if you bled consistently for a few hours.

I had some light spotting during week 9 and went in– everything was fine, and our little jellybean was bouncing all around on the u/s.  

Call your OBGYN and schedule an initial appointment as soon as they’ll take you; tell them you were spotting a little and see what they have to say.  Good luck and congrats!

@Kim4995:  I’ve heard many women have spotting! Yours sounds like it was minimal. I would just call your ob and try to get in if you’re super worried. I’m glad the bleeding wasn’t significant or lasted a long time!

I had spotting in the first tri from being too active, and have heard of other ladies experiencing “implantation bleeding”. Nothing in the second, and some more blood in the third trimester. They told me it was probably from cervical changes, but at 39w I am still not dilated at all.

I spotted during the first trimester too around 6 weeks I think. It was only a minimal amount and only on the toilet paper. I freaked out and rang my midwife and rushed into hosp to see him. He said since it wasnt associated with cramps or pain it was most likely implantation bleeding and not to worry. Im now 22weeks and have had no problems since 🙂 Good Luck and Congrats!!

I had bleeding at few times i n the first and second trimesters and called my midwife who said its likely from cervical changes and not to worry unless you fill a pad within an hour or something like that (it was a year ago now so i cant really remember the advise) 

It always alarming when you see blood whist pregnant but you are not cramping (although cramping is also normal at this stage of pregnancy) and the bleeding is minimal and has now stopped. 

By all means pee on more sticks over the coming weeks ( i think i peed on a stick every week for the first month or so!) to put your mind at rest but i think you are your little bubba are absolutely fine.

Happy and healthy 9 months to you

This is very normal from what I understand. But talk to your doctor, and keep taking pregnancy tests if you think that may make you feel better.
