As long as it isn’t bright red I wouldn’t worry too much. If it starts to get bright red and there are blood clots then I would go and see a doctor asap. Other than that just keep your head up and try to make an appointment as soon as you can. *hugs*

Just for so validation. When I had my mc the nurses told me that if it is brown or light pink not to worry and that lots of women spot through out their pregnancy. She said as long as it isn’t bright red then everything will be ok.

I read that something like 20-30% of women have unexplained spotting (or full-out bleeding!) in early pregnancy. Unless it’s it’s combined with cramping and bright red bleeding, the woman usually goes on to have a healthy pregnancy. 

I agree with PennyLainne…make an appointment with an OBGYN (I didn’t have one before this pregnancy) and try to relax and put your feet up. They can get you checked out, and maybe recommend a midwife, if that’s the route you want to take.

I don’t have any advice at all, but you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers!

It may be normal, so try not to worry. But I would put yourself on Pelvic Rest immediately since you can’t get in to see a doctor. That means no sex, no lifting of more than 10 lbs, basically take it easy!! When I had spotting early on in pregnancy last year, my doctor immediately put me on Pelvic Rest. Try not to worry!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I got a bright red spot of blood at 5 weeks right after Christmas. I called my doctor a few days after it. The spot only occurred once and didn’t return. The doctor’s assistant put me on a watch it for any changes. It could have been from anything since the hormones are going wild down there. There’s something called a “friable cervix” where anything can upset it. Less than two weeks until my first appointment!

I had spotting with both my pg’s and it was during the week I should have gotten my period, so they said it was just old blood, hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

@FutureJessicaMcB: you really should go see a doctor. It’s worth taking the time off, to figure out what’s going on. I wish you all the best.

@FutureJessicaMcB: I don’t want to scare you, but if you are having a miscarriage that is “taking to long” it could cause an infection and possibly long term damage. I hope that’s not the case, but you don’t want to hurt your future fertility if this is the case.

With that said, I had some spotting with my current pregnancy, and I’m now 17 weeks and having a healthy pregnancy. 

Good luck to you and I’m glad to hear that you are going.
