  • I've spotted both times. I'm 7 weeks out from having my second baby, and my first baby is two and a half. It really freaked me out too, so I know where you're coming from. Try to relax even though it's hard. I guess some women just spot.

  • I was spotting like that also and went to the doctors and they just tell you to take it easy for the first 3-4 months because those are the easiest months to have a I took it easy and didnt do anything because they told me even though the baby was ok at the time they checked me didnt completely rule out a misscarriage later on in pregnacy and the more you do the higher your risk is for one...

  • I spotted during the first trimester (the dark brown stuff). I was a wreck from being so nervous because it took me 2 years to become pregnant. It's easy to say "don't be nervous, don't worry" but it's totally understandable that you're worried! Just try your best to have faith in what your doctor says, and try as hard as you can to enjoy your pregnancy. :)

  • I spotted during my second pregnancy (it may have happened during my first, also, but I can't remember). Now I'm expecting #3 and I started spotting on Easter Sunday. Lasted about 2 weeks, then stopped. Then just last Saturday I passed a pretty large clot. Totally freaked me out, but I've had 5-6 ultrasounds and everything is fine. They can't tell me why it's happening but the baby is fine. I'll be 13 weeks on Thursday.

  • I spotted with both of my girls. It lasted for 21 weeks with my youngest. I had 9 ultrasounds and they never could give my a reason why. But it did seem to happen if I was really tired or stressed. So try to stay relaxed and calm - I know its not that easy. Hang in there!
