  • for lots of people it is. keep an eye on it and tell your doctor, especially if it increases.

  • I had brown spotting and called my doc right away. She got me in the same day. Red spotting is definately not good. My doc said that it was probably old blood from my last cycle. I would call immediately!

  • I'm about 5 weeks along and it had been happening to me for the past 3-4 days, if its not bright red and period like I dont think you should worry about it. I called the nurse at my Doc's office and she said that for some people that is normal..If you feel that you should call your Doc do it, for peace of mind, but I wouldnt worry about it...

  • yes i think it's normal. i wouldn't worry about it. :) sometimes spotting can precede a miscarriage but there is really no way to know or to prevent that so there is no reason to go to the doctor imo. but like i said, it's really normal and try not to worry! good luck!
