spotting during pregnancy

I am 18 weeks pregnant and I have some blood tinged mucus and then twice I have had actual blood when I wipe after going to the bathroom. I think I may have a urinary tract infection and I am going to go to the doctor tomorrow. I can still feel the baby move, but should I be worried or I am I just being paranoid?

  • Glad you are going to see the doc! The bleeding wasn't after sex?

  • What you are experiencing is normal, and your baby is probably fine. Spotting during pregnancy is common. Beware if you are bleeding and cramping at the same time. You are making the right decision to see the doctor. They can only help us if they know what is happening. Good luck!

  • as long as you feel your baby move I wouldnt worry. I spotted through my pregnancy and nothing was wrong. The doc said it was normal.
