  • call your doctor

    relax=most likely implantation bled, can happen and early on, if this nothing to worry about
    but call to inform your doctor

    ** my situation, i had, doctor said implantation bleed, i had more and red and a lot, new doc did external scan=i had placenta previa
    but that is not common

    IF you bleed red, heavy or have any concerns, instincts say not implantation bled=ask doctor for a external scan to check placenta=not internal

  • I would call your doctor but if it is light spotting it is normal.

  • If it's your urine that's pink it's probably a bladder infection. Does it hurt when you go?

  • If you aren't cramping or having bright red bleeding it's probably normal implantation or a UTI but take it easy and drink alot of water. Hydration is way more important than most people realize. Later in pregnancy dehydration can actually cause contractions to start.

  • Thanks everyone. I called the After Hours number at my clinic and spoke with the doctor on call. He wasn't worried at all. He said to take it easy and if I still had concerns I could make an appointment with my doc this next week.
