When should I worry about light bleeding during early pregnancy?

I started light bleeding about 6 hours ago. I've had some lower back pain and may be some ever so slight cramping. I'm feeling kind of bloated. I'm probably about 7 weeks pregnant. I have my first doctor's appointment on Monday, but didn't know if I should go get checked out sooner. I have one little girl and never experienced spotting or bleeding with her pregnancy. Any insight would be appreciated!

  • I am not a doctor but, if you are spotting ,then you need to go to the ER. It could be that you are having a light period. Some women do for the first couple of months. But to be on the safe side I would at least be checked out. Good luck sweety.
