  • Well, DARK colored blood that is still very very light could go either way. My midwife always said as long as there was no pain and I wasn't having to use a pad, then it could still be normal. As long as you aren't bleeding heavily and have no pain, I'd think waiting until Thursday to find out if anything is wrong would be alright so long as you've discussed spotting with ur provider before, like you said. (Unless you will worry yourself sick...then just go in and have an u/s as soon as possible to ease your own mind. ER's will generally do this if you can't get somewhere else). If it gets any heavier or you start cramping, see someone right away.

  • I spotted a few times in my first trimester..I was told it could be if I was to be getting my period around that time it could be from that. If your not cramping and its not enough blood to soak a pad I think you'll be ok..but you could always call just to verify and to calm your nerves. Good luck.

  • I would call and let them know it is bright red. I have had two miscarriages and did not have pain either time...just started bleeding. Good luck and I hope it is just a bump in the road for you!
