  • It could be very normal for you or it could be a problem the only way to know for sure is to call your doctor. Just know a lot of women will spot during pregnancy.

  • Spotting is normal in the first trimester..if you're really unsure call your doctor.

  • A little isn't generally a big deal, but if you need some reassurance, call your OB/midwife.
    As long as it doesn't get period-heavy, you're probably okay.
    Good luck!

  • As long as you don't have cramps, I wouldn't worry too much.Unless it persists.

  • That happened with my second baby. I went to the doc and they did an ultrasound said everything looked fine and it can be normal. They told me not to do any mopping or vacuuming or stuff like that. He is six now.

  • No mopping or vacumming is common after childbirth because it puts a little stress on your lower abs and pelvic floor, oddly enough. If you are bleeding, you need to try to take it easy until it either stops or your doctor gives you other instructions. Some women do bleed in pregnancy. My experience with bleeding ended in miscarriage. Try to stay calm and contact your doctor today!
