Has anyone had spotting around 12 weeks and a healthy pregnancy?

I had 3 miscarriages with no found cause. Then my miracle son was born. Now I am 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant and 2 days ago I started spotting. I went to the ER and the heartbat was still 177 bpm. The doc said the blood was "old blood" from about 3 days before. It turned brownish then went away and I haven't had any bleeding since. All of my losses before were before 8 weeks so I thought I was in the clear. What do you guys think?

  • I think you will be fine, sometimes it happens. But if you have ANY more bleeding make sure to get to the ER.

  • If it still has a heartbeat then it should be fine. I had spotting at 12 weeks and when i went to the dr the next day i found out the baby had stopped growing and passed away at 8 weeks. i did spot a little around that time when i was pregnant with my son and he is now a healthy 4 yr old. Hope this helps and good luck.

  • as long as its brown you should be fine.

  • you should be fine especially if you got checked out. I had 2 M/C and one was at 13weeks. I am now 12 weeks and can't wait to get past the 13th week. I don't think you have anything to worry about though.

  • I spotted weekly through the first trimester with my second. I had a picture-perfect, full-term pregnancy. :)
