  • Totally normal. If it becomes heavier or, as you said, turns bright red, call the doctor.

    Congrats, by the way!

  • I only spotted after a pap at around 9 weeks but yea i heard if its not red than no need to worry. I spot when i have implantation bleeding as well. I was fooled into thinking it was my period came on early until it only lasted a day and it never came back it was pinkish not red though. A week later tested positive.

  • I had that happen. It was only 2 days... but it is the placenta attaching itself to your uterine wall.

  • well i started spotting lightly at 4 1/2 wks with my 3rd baby (current) and i ended up finding out it was because of low progesterone at 5 wks so i had to be on progesterone until 11 wks. There are several reasons that it can happen tho. Some women spot for no reason but not commonly. If u are there is USUALLY a reason, but not always severe. Just talk to ur dr and get checked out if it continues!
