Is light spotting during early pregnancy normal?

I am around 5 weeks, and a first time mom-to-be. Today I experienced some light spotting that freaked me out. I have not yet been to my first OB appointment, should I call my Dr about this? Will they even talk to me without seeing me? I've read that some Dr's dont want to see you till your 2nd period has been missed to be sure your not having a false pregnancy.

  • never heard of the last thing you were talking about i have called my ob and he hasnt seen me yet but he did with my first. they told us if it is not dark blood or if it comes and goes then it is ok. if you are that worried then call you ob all they can tell you is we cant answer that over the phone

  • It is fine as long as you don't have any severe cramping and a heavy flow you are okay.
