  • i had that happen to me at around same week but sadly mine was a miscarriage starting. Im would call doc asap to be on the safe side to rule anything serious out and help ease your mind. GL

  • Spotting is very normal in pregnancy. It could be from your cervix, which becomes engorged with blood about 6 weeks in, or it could be a little breakthrough bleeding. If it gets heavy, turns bright red or is accompanied by pain, those could be warning signs of a miscarriage (though still not a guarantee). If you have one-sided pain, see a doctor or midwife because one-sided pain is sometimes a symptom of ectopic.

    I spotted like crazy with my daughter from 6-10 weeks... sometimes it was more like a light period. She came through just fine :)

  • It is relatively normal. If it gets anymore then spotting or you have a bad feeling then I'd worry and go in. Until then just try to keep calm. I have had many losses and any blood is worrisome but some is truly normal. HUGS!

  • I don't want to worry you at all but I had very little spotting, no pain or any other symptoms and I had a miscarriage. It does happen and if you feel something is not right then push to be seen by someone, I did and I'm glad, I lost my baby at 5wks but would never have known until I reaced my first u/s at 12weeks.Really hoping that it's just spotting you're having tho hun
