  • Only if it continues and it is red blood.

  • Sounds completely normal to me. I wouldn't worry unless the blood turns to a dark red, becomes heavy like a period, or is accompanied by pain/cramping.

  • you should worry if you start to see any clots in with the blood. Hope all goes well

  • Sounds like implantation bleeding. It's completely normal. I went to the e.r. at 6 weeks thinking I was miscarrying because I had some spotting, and then some brown came out. The brown is first of all old blood. And the doctor at the e.r. told me that as long as it wasn't bright red and I wasn't bleeding enough to fill up a pad in one hour, then it's nothing to worry about. Just make an appointment with your doctor if you'd like some reassurance :)

  • Sweetie, nothings TMI especially when you are concerned about your unborn child :) No worries there. I say go to the dr. and see whats happening. By the time your 6 wks preg, he/she should have a heart beat that you can see through an ultrasound. I know that for a fact bc I was high risk when i pregnant with my son. They were watching the amount of that pregnancy hormone (sry can't remember the name of it. Its like HGG or something, lol) and once the hormones were at a 6 wk level, they did a u/s and I saw my son's heartbeating. I say whenever theres blood involved and you are pregnant, there's no harm and getting it checked out. Better safe than sorry. ya know ?? If it was me, I would've went to the ER. lol I suggest making an appt with your ob, getting lots of rest on your left side, drink lots of water. Like put yourself on bed rest until your appt. It will be worth it !! Take care & good luck!
