  • I had slight bleeding with both of pregnancys early in the pregnancys.. I would say I was about 5-8 weeks along. Ive known several other woman that did the same in the early part of there pregnancys. I think its fairly normal.

  • I spent the first trimester spotting and such, I couldnt even go to the store. Where I live, the number 1 reason for miscarriage is dehydration, so once Iknew that, I made sure I was drinking ALOT of fluid and whenever I was spotting the first thing I did was get my feet up, lay down, and drink drink drink! The baby was fine and so was I, but Iknow it is scary, so just keep your feet up as much as possible. Once I got to the 2nd trimester, all was fne and I was even able to go to work full time
