  • I'm sure you are okay. Spotting is normal toward the end, but I want you to call your doctor and get his opinion. The thing that worries me is the "purplish" color. Call your doctor as soon as you can. You can also call your insurance company and speak to an RN and she will give you an assessment and tell you what you need to do. Good luck sweety!!!
