Is spotting after a bowel movemet normal or a sign of m/c?

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and every once in awhile I will have light pinkish spotting after a BM. Sometimes it's a tad heavier when I wipe, but it's still not very heavy and then sometimes it's barely noticable. Could this be a sign of a miscarriage? I'm not cramping either. My Dr told me as long as it's not bright red, then there is no need to worry right now.

  • If the doctor says no then probably not. It sounds like your constipated and maybe straining when you go? Drinking more water should help.

  • maybe ur pushing it out too much and not letting it get out on it's own. Don't strain to poop
