  • call your doctor if you're so worried.. but it doesn't seem like something to worry about too much.

  • just a story to make you feel better... When I was about 3 months pregnant and could still reach the appropriate parts, I decided to shave my bikini area. Of course, I nicked myself---like I always did. When I saw the blood a little bit later, I freaked the heck out. *LOL* I didn't call the doc, but called my husband. He started asking me what I'd been doing that day, thinking I had overexerted myself. When I got to the bit about the razor, we just both got really quiet. Then he started giggling. That was about the time I bought the little battery powered hair trimmer. :)

    Hang in there and call the doc if you are really scared. That is what they are there for.

  • How far along are you? I spotted like that through most of my first trimester with my second, and it was a perfectly healthy, full-term pregnancy. If that makes you feel better.

    Generally, spotting isn't anything to worry about unless accompanied by other symptoms like pain. Period bleeding is when it starts to be a concern. But regardless, if you're worried, by all means call your doctor. That's what they're there for. :)

  • Call your doctor. I've had many a conversation with mine while at appointments. The good doctors really don't mind the calls of "I'm doing XYZ, what's going on???!?" My clinic has a doc on-call 24/7 for questions like that.

    I think it's always better to be safe than sorry.

  • Completely agreeing with kkbird just relax dear, you are probably either lifting to much or something that is straining you a little more than you need. Again, relax and sit down more often.

  • I doubt it's anything to worry about, but you can always call the doctor.

  • Spotting can be completely normal. Call your doc if you are worried, but don't stress yourself out.
