How much bleeding is Ok?

I'm 8 weeks Pregnant. I started spotting a few days ago. Dark brown blood. I figured was ok. Last night I got bright red blood, and still have some today. Not as much today as last night. Do you think this is ok?

  • As long as its not filling a pad than I would say you are probably fine. However I would let your doctor know anyways. Any bleeding is something they need to know about, even though half the time its nothing to worry about.

  • if it is spotting you should be fine if you are bleeding like aperiod that is not
    if you are spotting and cramping that is bad
    bleeding and cramping is never good

  • Call your doctor honey. I would say that no blood is the only think that is okay.

  • Some women experience spotting in their pregnancy, but I would be on the safe side, and contact your doctor and then they can decide what you need to do. I'm sure everything is ok, but it doesn't hurt to check. good luck to you!

  • Both times I had bright red blood ended badly. Call your doctor and they can help you figure out what is going on. Good luck!
