nygirla:  Although there could be several causes, there is really no point in going to the ER unless you are having emergency symptoms:

Call 911 or other emergency services immediately if you are pregnant and you have severe vaginal bleeding AND signs of shock. Early signs of shock include:

Light-headedness or a feeling that you are about to pass out.
Restlessness, confusion, or signs of fear.
Shallow, rapid breathing.
Moist, cool skin or possibly profuse sweating.
Thirst, nausea, or vomiting.
Abnormal increase in heart rate.

Even if you are having signs of a potential miscarriage, there is nothing a doctor can do to prevent it .

Some women spot throughout their whole pregnancy and carry to term with no problems.

You do have the option to phone your doctor and see what they recommend.

At 5w3d, an ER bedside ultrasound won’t show much, if anything at all. I know it’s hard, but try to relax. It’s not worth an ER visit unless you start cramping and/or bleeding heavily.

nygirla:  Honestly, if it had been me, I wouldn’t have gone to the ER. In my mind, if I was going to have a miscarriage, I was going to have one, and freaking out or getting a super early ultrasound wouldn’t have changed anything. I did have some light spotting in early pregnancy (which is normal), and I had bad cramping during the night for about 20 minutes each time- I wasn’t too concerned.

nygirla:  I spotted for about 2 weeks, on and off, sometimes pinky sometimes red. It was concerning, but normal. Try not to stress 🙂

nygirla:  I had spotting at 5 weeks and around 20. Now have a healthy baby boy :). The cervix is highly vascular during pregnancy so light spotting (especially after sex) is super common in the first few weeks. You could see if you could bring your ultrasound closer though, just for peace of mind? x
