  • Call your doctor

  • Light spotting is normal. Some women even get full on periods while pregnant (my mom's co-worker had a period for the first 6 months of her pregnancy. She didn't know she was pregnant until she missed it on the 7th month. She just thought she was gaining weight.)

    If you start cramping or bleeding more then go get checked out by your OB. Even though the spotting is usually nothing to worry about, you may still want to talk to your doctor. Just to be on the safe side.

  • I had light spotting while i was pregnant with my first and even with this pregnancy. It happens when you have sex mostly (is what my doctors told me. Anyways they said it's normal as long as you dont have cramping or severe bleeding. If so call the doctor ASAP. If it's bad go to the ER other then that it's probably nothing to worry about, but you should ALWAYS inform your doctor about anything your worried about. It's always better that they know everything so if something was to arise they are prepared. okay so stay strong alright! =)

  • Talk to your doc, they may decide to monitor you or do an ultrasound. Don't worry needlessly, stay strong and congratulations!
