  • I have 6 kids and had light spotting in the first trimester with a few of them. I wouldn't be too worried, but I would definitly let your Dr. know just to rule out things like an infection. Good luck!

  • Check with your doc to be sure but it doesnt sound like it would be of huge concern. I had light bleeding similar to what you said (mostly when I wiped) and it turned out to be placenta previa, meaning the placenta is down covering the cervix opening instead of higher up. Which almost always fixes itself. But you always wanna play it safe and see the doc.
