I just took the test a wk. ago, and found out I'm preggers. I'm about 3 wks. late, and I went to the bathroom yesterday, and found that I was spotting. I felt a little tiny bit of pressure as well. This is my 4th preg. and this has never happened before, so I kinda freaked out. I called my ob, and was told to just make an appt. for a.s.a.p. and as long as I wasn't flowing heavier than my heaviest period, or cramping really bad, that I"d be ok. Has anyone gone through this? If so, was the baby born healthy or did you miscarry? I'm just worried, and never been through this.

  • it's very different for every person but my friend last week had to go to the er because she was bleeding very heavy and the baby was fine. If you had sex the night b4 that can make you spot.. spotting can also mean miscarry but it doesn't always mean that. just wait and see what the doctor says..spotting is normal for MANY woman! hope this helps and good luck!
